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.

I found it as "Marston’s Old Empire True India Pale Ale".
100% clear golden beer with fair white head. Quick retention.
Very pale aroma. Paper hints. Some bubble gum.
Medium to high bitterness and maltiness. Bitter finish. Maybe a bit of hops
Sticky texture, full body, moderate carbonation.
Well, it’s not IPA for sure and I have no idea why they wrote IPA on the label.

Fľaša. Zlatá farba, bez peny. Vôňa ako cukríky, umelá, sladká. V chuti sladkosť, železitosť, slabá dochuť.

500ml bottle from Morrisons, Preston. Pours clear golden amber, short-lived white head. Aromas are mineral, butter biscuit, faint citrus. Taste is more of the same. Sticky sweet finish. Not great, but slightly better than the last two!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
As Marstons Old Empire India Pale Ale. 500ml bottle, Maruhn bb08/2015. Diluted supermarket brand orange marmelade drifts on a dulled body and pleasantly light biscuit malts. Lack of any real hop bouquet besides a hint at Lady Grey. Quick finish. A bit course, but still managed to enjoy this as an easy sucker for anything ESB/UK-style IPA.
