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.

colui72 (326) - 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 (2912) - 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 (1352) - 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.

Leighton (14430) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 24, 2015
Bottle at home in London - picked up at the big M&S on Oxford St. Pours crystal clear gold, effervescent, with a frothy white head. Nice aroma, with good hop notes, some biscuity pale malts, hints of pine. Light-medium sweet flavor with subtle piney bitterness, pale bread, pine, orange rind. Light bodied with average carbonation. Good balance on the finish, more citrusy hops, mellow rindy and piney bitterness. Just a little too grassy in the aftertaste. Quite solid overall, really.
