From Marks and Spencer's. Nice Burton style IPA. Fruity citric nose, firmly bitter with sulfates evident. Nicely done but burtonising seems to replace flavour with bitterness somewhat. And a touch thin. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Wendigo (189) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - SEP 26, 2016
0.5l bottle as Staffordshire IPA from M&S. Ara of malts and hops, citrus fruits, dates and floral notes. Hazy amber color, no head. Malty and hopy taste, orange and floral notes, less bitter than an average IPA. Light body, oily texture, average carbonation and bitter finish with floral notes. Easy drinking.

visionthing (4831) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 27, 2016
50cl bottle as "Marks & Spencer Staffordshire IPA" from M&S, Tallinn. Pours deep golden to amber with a modest, off-white head. Malty aroma with gentle notes of British hops, somewhat fruity and mild citrusy with hints of caramel. Medium to moderate sweet with rather mild flavours and a bitterness on the light side. Fair enough.

Aroma of hops with a hint of cabbage and hazelnut. Okay white appearance with a golden body. Flavour has average nutty notes with sharp hops. Medium on the mouth, aaand a perfectly okay IPA.

nybol (1454) - DENMARK - JUN 30, 2016
En god IPA, ikke sĺ humlet som mange IPA’er, men mere over i en almindelig ale. Meeget mere sřd i det end de fleste andre IPA’er jeg har smagt. Mĺske skyldes det at de IPA’er der laves i Danmark og USA er mere humlede end de oprindelig var tćnkt.

jamestulloch (3490) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 20, 2016
Bottle (Staffordshire IPA), gift from Tom. Clear golden body with a thin white head. Steady carbonation. Faint lacing. Aroma of grain, underripe pear and earth. Flavour of sour grain, tin foil and grass. Thin to medium body with a watery texture. Sharp and astringent. Not great.

First ever rating and what a beer to start with.... Appearance is none existing as well as the aroma it is just not surprising or challenging in any way. Not a beer I would recommend, but happy to be here on Ratebeer!

Very generic with an aroma of malt and caramel. Not something I would recommend.
