Bottle from M&S Westbourne-Dorset. Bought as part of the "award winning English ales" range. Aroma=Citrus fruit, biscuit, hay/grass, head builds and decays fast(uneventful), caramel. The wife said it reminded her of Kronenbourg-Blanc (wheat beer). Taste=Light/Medium slightly sweet malted tones, along with citrus fruit dominating later. Although not overpowering by any stretch, it makes a great palate cleanser after eating a meal consisting of strong flavours (like garlic or chilli). Overall I took to this ale pretty fast, I do like the classic American IPA’s, most of which feature chinook and cascade hops in some way shape or form. I don’t think it is really unique enough to stand out, if compared directly and would quickly become lost in a session, where a handful of American IPA’s are present. However, as an English ale it is perfectly fine and good, satisfying to drink and good ABV. I did have to smile at the writing on the bottle which states "Classic British ale, brewed with Cascade hop created in Oregon state(U.S.)"! One of the better in this M&S range of beers.

Scopey (10641) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 30, 2015
Bottle from M&S, Victoria. It pours clear amber with a decent white head. The nose is bitter-sweet, earthy, spicy, cereal and some toffee. The taste is bitter, spicy, slightly metallic, grapefruit, lemon peel and some floral notes with a dry, citrusy finish. Light - medium body and moderate carbonation. Cascade hops don’t sing as much as they should. I can’t help but feel underwhelmed....
