Hanoi (640) - Greater Manchester, - JAN 24, 2013
Very gentle floral aroma. Taste is light to the point of bland. Very gentle hops giving a herbal note, with a pleasing bitterness to finish. Slightly too carbonated for my tastes. It’s not a bad beer but too middle of the road for me. Perhaps a good choice for the drinker who prefers the classic English ipa over the more extreme ipa currently in fashion

Slightly hazy patchy head taste reminds me of punk iPa only more subtle zingy clementine and pink grapefruit with a slightly sour finish.

thmsboyd (143) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - SEP 6, 2015
Bottle BBE: 07/2016. Well-chilled. Pours a clear amber body with large, pillowy off-white head. Quite low intensity on the nose, but pleasant aromas of citrus and a little biscuity sweetness are clear. A little sweetness is backed up by a low-medium intensity bitterness on the tongue. Light bodied, with quite a watery texture, low-medium carbonation and a crisp finish. Very decent pale ale that’s incredibly sessionable for 5%. All very subtle.

ThirstyBird (2262) - London area, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 1, 2015
Bottle from M&S in Berko, pours a clear light amber with a cream colored head. The smell is toasted malt, citrus, some caramel, citrus. The taste is bright citrus melding with toasted malt, caramel and fruit ending dry and somewhat bitter. Light++ is body with nice tight carbonation. A good old school balanced IPA.

maley1 (899) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 22, 2015
Clear golden yellow pour with medium sized white head. Aroma of malts, grains and hops. Taste of malts, grains, hops, faint citrus and faint fruitiness. Medium bodied, nicely carbonated, well balanced. Not a bad beer but not memorable.

colui72 (349) - HONG KONG - JUN 16, 2015
Beautiful golden with soapy white head. The citric hoppiness of an IPA comes ins later as it warms up. Nothing amazing.

vipinvelp (3055) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - JUN 10, 2015
Clear yellow, white lacing foam. Hoppy aroma, bitter taste. Indeed a refreshing beer, bitter in the English way. Lasting aftertaste. (Velp 201506)

jamaty (1458) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 8, 2015
Dorada, con bastante pequeño sedimento flotante. Un dedo de espuma poco densa. Aroma frutal. Uva. En boca, marcado amargor general, creciente. Envuelto en un sabor muy frutal donde predomina la uva. Efervescencia en su justo punto. Notable.

Une IPA classique, sèche peu fruitée mais efficace. Une bière au caractère anglais qui se laisse bien boire fraîche.
