4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Very nice example of a British IPA. Nice fruity hop flavours which do not overpower the malts. Would be a great session beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask @ Post Horn, St. Helier.
Smooth and fresh beginning, intense and smooth. Fine hints of flowery hops. The mainpart is smooth, nice balanced malty with a nice floral bitterness. Not too sweet, but smooth fitting in! The aftertaste is fresh, easy to drink and still deep - nice sweetish maltiness with a subtle aroma of floral hops!
Much better than the bottled version!!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask at The Clachlan, London. Pours a clear, dark gold with a tight, creamy white head. Clean and fresh hops on the nose, subtle grapefruit. Flavor doesn’t quite match up to the aroma but it’s still good. Pretty sweet, some creamy caramel, ripe citrus, faint grass. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Sweet finish, decent balance, some caramel, toast, easy earth and herbal hops. An alright beer on the whole.

On cask at The Haymarket. Pours a golden colour with a thick white head. Aroma of grassy hops, yeast and alcohol. Similar flavours and quite bitter. Mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel.

Impressive and authentic looking and tasting IPA. Stunned to discover that it’s brewed in the Channel Islands ! Perfectly kept and served by the Blackfriar pub in Central London (cask)

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask(@ Windsor Castle, Kensington):Deep golden, hazy, mid-sized loose but persistent head, relatively sweetish nose of flowery and citrussy hops, toasted malt and a slight touch of cough syrup underneath; moderate dryish dryish bitter-sweet flavour, light to medium bodied; not completely dry, but still dryish bitter-sweet flowery to herbal hoppy finish, some juicy malt detectable. Fine session beer…

Cask at a pub in Greenwich. Don’t remember the name though. Very light hazy coloured with no carbonation and a small white head. Fruity floral hoppy bitter hinted aroma. Medium palate. Finish is light bitter fruity. Very Nice.

Cask conditioned at The Royal Oak, Oxford. Amber with white head. This is quite a bitter and dry beer with an earthy, slightly muddy flavoured beer. Lasting on the palate, a hint of citrus perhaps but fairly basic mostly. It’s ok.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hand pulled at the Shakespeare (Lower Temple St), Birmingham. Orange, with thick head. Smells faintly of hop and apple. Pretty bland taste. A yawn of sugar hop, then a thick wash of nothing, backed up with a dryish biscuit finish. Does get better, but reasonable only.
