3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Medium Gold beer with tight whiyte head and light carbonation. Asda Extra Special Lemon Cheesecake Yoghurt on the nose with perhaps some mandarins. This carries on into the body with some bitterness and a sweet mandarin finish. Quite thin-bodied in comparison to some IPAs but a unique flavour.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Peaches, malt, yet a strong hoppy palate - competing with the Manchester bitter both for bitterness and complexity. Slightly stronger than what some Brits would call a session ale - but this is very quaffable.

Cask at Euston Tap, London. A fairly traditional British take on an American IPA. Clear, yellowish pour with a soft, white head. Crisp hop nose with grass and straw. Light, crackery malts provide a mild sweetness, then a very natural-tasting bitterness of earth, hay and grass comes in. Light in body with fine to average carbonation. Clean, lightly dry grassy hop finish.
