COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Keg. <br / > Chilled and lightly carbonated, with an amber, polished-wood hue. Roast toffee aromas belay the higher abv. Plum and apple flavours remain after the more subtle hoppy top notes fade out. This classic, dry IPA is rich and satisfying, and shows that it’s not just the Americans who can master craft beer..

McNeillR (974) - SCOTLAND - APR 10, 2014
Firm dehydrated golden with thinnest contrasting white head. Eggy and yeasty Custard creamish nose. Neatly lemon and creamy initial taste. Fairly creamy but decent tickle of carbonation. Odd creamy dryness on the finish. Almost Belgianny, reinforced by the peppery linger. An oddball IPA, albeit a well presented beer.

Keg, Friends Of Ham, Leeds

Keg Lyric London 20/03/14. A bronze coloured beer with a white head and lace. A bit too chewy in the body. Hops have sharp bitterness. Really don’t get much pleasure from this. Just a reasonable strong golden ale type beer.

Craft Islington. Keg. As ’Summit English IPA’. Bright clear amber beer, little pale cream coloured head. Palate is smooth with a crisp minerally trailing edge. Smooth malt, trace of caramel. Hops are mostly noble like in their medium bitterness but there is light touch of orange and lemon citrus underneath. Finishes light and crisp with light malt cream coming through and the bitterness ramping up.

Keg at CBC Clerkenwell. Bright copper color, fine lace. Big caramel and toffee nose, burnt sugar. Huge burnt caramel flavor, bitter, slight malt astringency, earthy. Weird. Off, with diacetyl.
