1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
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!

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
As M&S Staffordshire IPA, dry-bitter, light fruit notes, some hoppy spiciness, an excellent EIPA.
