A strong, old style India Pale Ale reminiscent of the ales exported across the globe by British breweries during the early 19th Century. It has a full hop aroma, golden body and tight head. The bitterness lingers on the palate giving a dry finish.

EdKing (2230) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 22, 2015
Bottle in the Royal Oak, Borough. Served room temperature. Clear light chestnut brown, thin white foam head. Nose is caramel, crystal malt, boiled sweet, slight earthy English hop, some biscuity malt. Bit dull really. On the taste it’s as above but there’s some earthy dry hop, bit of ale fruitiness. Old fashioned caramel and boiled sweet bottled bitter. Bottle condition for God’s sake.

McNeillR (1897) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 27, 2015
Paler amber than the bitter, slight buzzy head. Toffee and pineapple nose. Lean grassy bitterness, the "full hop" is a bit of a melon and lime stretch and it finishes clean enough. Agreeable enough finish, firm tinny bitterness.

Tasting at Leighton’s Flat. Thanks to Paul. Clear gold beer, nice bubbly pale cream colour head. Palate is airy and semi dry with mild fine carbonation. Airy malts bring decent creamy sweetness. Hops are pithy orange with lesser grapefruit. Mild peel. Light semi dry finish. Pithy linger. Nice balance of sweet and bitter here and it drinks well under it’s abv.
