Hanoi (787) - 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

Bottle at home, picked up from M&S. Bright golden / light orange coloured pour with a large rocky white head. Aroma is grassy hop, mineral, seaweed, faint citrus, some caramel notes. Flavour is composed of semi sweet base grains with hints of caramel, mineral, grassy hop, st austell yeast. Palate is semi sweet, moderate to high carbonation and a little mineral. OK.

Calisky (2401) - ALSACE, FRANCE - FEB 29, 2016
Couleur orangée, énorme mousse. Nez leger malté fruité. Gout malté fruité un peu vieille pomme avec houblon poussiereux et amertume d’orange et note de racine aromatique . Dans la patrie de l’Ipa, faire ca, c’est vraiment pas génial et bien commercial! Deçu

500ml bottle. Golden ale, white foam dissipates quickly. Pleasant enough spicy hoppiness, not enough malt for me. Better than average.

A light fresh Hop aroma, this has lots of sharp gooseberry notes , and a clean finish. While not an outstanding beer, it’s better than 99% of other supermarket beers.

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

thmsboyd (193) - 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 (2536) - Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire, 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.
