Firstly, none of the Keswick beers are bottle conditioned. Secondly, the regular beers I have had when on holiday in beautiful lakeland are very good, if not outstanding. This was disappointing. It has a distracting apple aroma and taste which interferes too much. Perhaps better on draft given Sims rate but this wasn’t hoppy enough for me. Having said that, I had just enjoyed a bottle of Stone I.P.A so perhaps somewhat unfair. Given my opinion of the brewery, I will try again on draft/bottle.

danlo (1444) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - MAY 25, 2013
500ml bottle from the Crafty Pint, Darlington Market. Pours an orange golden amber colour, off-white foam head that dissipates and aroma of malt, resin, citrus, oaky wood. Taste is sweet malty caramel, oak, vanilla along with fruity resiny notes and a spicy bitterness. Slightly oily mouthfeel, medium bodied, medium carbonation, dry bitter finish. Quite drinkable IPA.

500ml bottle picked up at the excellent Microbar in Manchester and carried home for a drinking session with Finn. Firm off-white head, some of remaining. Next to clear amber coloured body. Smell is dry with leafs and resin. Dried fruity taste added by bready malts, rather jam-like. Fruit bitter ending. Oily palate. Quite likable, a bit heavy to drink though (Tromsø, 18.07.2012).

Flaske 0,5l påspandert av og delt med Rune under middag i WC74 18 Jul 12. Lysebrun. Høyt luftig skum. Forsiktig fruktig aroma. Smaken er søt aprikos & blomster med hint av mandler. Syrlig bitter ettersmak. Søtt helhetsinntrykk. Litt tung-drikkelig. Lite som minner om en IPA.

UPDATED: JAN 20, 2012 [500ml bottle from deli in Ullswater] Deepish gold colour with a thin white lacing. Like all their bottled beers I’ve had, extremely carbonated and very fizzy. Aromas of caramel and an almost saccharine sweetness. On the taste extremely sweet, almost cloyingly so. Really no balance here – from a 7% IPA the hop profile is negligible, as is the alcohol warmth. Not great A5 A3 F5 P3 O11 [15012011] Re-rate from cask at CAMRA/SIBA NWRF 2011 - pours golden amber with a decent white head. Aromas of grassy hop and a touch of alcohol. The sweetness is much reduced - clearly I got a duff bottle before. It’s still fairly sweet - but as you’d expect from a 7% cask IPA. The malt profile is actually really nice - definite improvement [23102011]

MoritzF (8676) - Bochum, GERMANY - DEC 17, 2010
(bottle) Clear, deep golden colour with a short and slightly off-white foamy head. Moderately sweet and bready malty, also slightly nutty aroma with a discreetly hoppy touch. Sweet and slightly bitter flavour, medium to full bodied with a soft carbonation. Bready malt-character with notes of cookies and marzipan; sweet malt-accented finish with almondy notes and a subtle fruity and vinous finish. 15.XII.10

Bottle: Deep golden, mid-sized stable white head,bisquity and bready nose with a light hoppy touch; moderate to solid bitter-sweet flavour, medium bodied; increasing citrussy hoppiness in the bisquity-malty finish. Well drinkable, a bit simple.....

Bottle. [thanks Søren]
Pours clear orange amber with a small, creamy, white head. Aroma has pine, apples, black currants and some fine malty sweetness. Medium carbonation, okay dry mouthfeel. No sight of the 7%. Flavour is mildly bitter, sweet malty, light brewing cereal. Mild dry and bitter finish. Okay.
