2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
It came from a 500ml clear bottle, it pours a a golden color with a pillowy 1 finger white head that lingers around. It has some small spots of lacing.
The aroma is mostly dominated by grassy notes and a little skunk.
The flavor, I can say isn’t going to get a fair shake. I am not sure if it got skunked, it is very grassy for an IPA . I get some toasted carmel but it also comes with a bunch of grass and grains, it is somewhat similar to an euro lager.
It finishes with a leafy bitterness that lingers around. I can’t really understand how they are calling this an IPA, I would say a decent version of a pale ale.

From Hipercor, last units. In Ikea’s pint glass. After dinner. Not what is expected from an IPA nowdays. Very drinkable but low on aroma and bitterness

Beautiful snow-white foam and a hop aroma revealing flower. This ESB is soft only with gentle but pleasant hop bitterness also allows room for a floral and slightly fruity taste.

From the very old notes, hence this is not a real rating, but more just a mark to myself that I have tried this at one point. Ok hoppy slightly spicy brew, but lacks real character.
