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 from M and S. Appearance - golden amber with a nice fluffy head. Nose - pine and grapefruit. Light cake note. Taste - mainly lemon and grapefruit. Lemon shandy note on the end. Palate - light bodied with a creamy texture and a long dry finish. Overall - a well made beer. Very drinkable.

Kolor złoty, w pełni klarowne. Piana biała, drobnoziarnista. Tworzy jedną zwartą, jednolitą warstwę. Piana utrzymuje się przez dość długi czas, potem opada do chmurki. Lacing na ściankach średniej maści. W aromacie trochę kwiatów, trochę trawy, karmelu i odrobina cytrusów. W smaku trawiaste, chmielowe, trochę herbatnikowe, subtelny cytrus w klimacie pomarańczy. W tle kapka pikantności. Goryczka średnia, lekka trawiastość na finiszu. Średnie do niskiego ciało. Dość wysokie nagazowanie. Spodziewałem się, że będzie słabe piwo, a tutaj pozytywne zaskoczenie ;) 🍻

UPDATED: JUL 22, 2016 Purchased from M&S store in Hong Kong. Beautiful and typical pale ale colour; golden body and a rich white top. With a toasted malt smell. Smooth taste. One problem is the taste of alcohol is not well covered.

500ml Flasche. Goldgelbes Bier, dünner Schaum. Fast kein Aroma. Im Geschmack kräuteriger Hopfen. Etwas Süsse. Zu flach.

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 (2500) - 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.
