COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned. Also available on keg (filtered but not pasteurised).
Meantime are Britain’s only brewers of authentic India Pale Ale. Small batch production allows us to apply the attention to detail and care we require to produce an authentic IPA especially for you. Pound upon pound of Fuggles & Goldings hops are needed to enable us to achieve the dry hopping rates necessary to recreate this great beer style. Enjoy with hot foods and spicy friends, or vice versa.

TheKernOwl (117) - West Sussex, ENGLAND - NOV 27, 2015
- Nose: High-register, woody, slightly spice-y; - Body: Seville marmelade hints; otherwise not too much taste; - Finish: somewhat herbal/medicine. A very English IPA, which initially almost comes across like a golden ale.

sir__v (1756) - Lille, FRANCE - OCT 24, 2015
Bottle @ home from Tesco, London - UK. Color: clear golden blond beer with medium carbonation and small white foam. Smell: sweet grassy and caramel notes. Resin notes. Taste: light body, grassy and resin taste. Small floral notes. Medium carbonation on mouth. Bad attenuation and oxydation taste... Aftertaste: resin and grassy. Well on some aspect the beer is great but some other are really bad and sink the rate for this beer. I need to retry it. Maybe a bad batch.

750ml bottle from Waitrose. Poured gold, clearish, quite a lot of carbonation to begin with. Lots of marmalade in taste and aroma, sweet malt backbone, fresh at the start but becomes sticky and medicinal towards the end. Really enjoyed this, proper old school British IPA. I’d buy again.
