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

jamestulloch (3100) - 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.

CaptainTilven (123) - Nancy, FRANCE - OCT 17, 2015
Marks&Spencer’s version : Staffordshire IPA. Light amber body headed by a white foam that fades quickly. Aroma of hop, grass, sweet orange; floral. Quite fruity, sweet, round; buiscuity, malty; not dry, not very bitter but body is rather medium than light; finish is a bit metallic. Probably a bit far from what is expected from the style. Anyway I enjoyed it.

Moebbels (662) - FINLAND - OCT 16, 2015
A clear dark orange body with a minimal white head. Nose has some earthy and musty hop aromas, as well as some sweet cookies and caramel. Taste is quite sweet and malty with a moderately bitter bite on the finish. Medium somewhat creamy carbonation and full palate. A little boring but a solid english IPA.

BeerViking (3848) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 10, 2015
As M&S Staffordshire IPA, dry-bitter, light fruit notes, some hoppy spiciness, an excellent EIPA.

ThirstyBird (2516) - Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 11, 2015
From the M&S in Berko. Pours a clear orange/brown with a cream colored top. The smell is toasted grain, fruit, citrus. The taste is toasted grain, caramel, herbal, some citrus ending dry and toasty. The body is light+ with active carbonation. Meh
