Hanoi (405) - Bedfordshire, - JAN 7, 2013
A bland aroma a touch of malt and the faintest, and I mean faintest hint of caramel. The appearance is a light amber. Bland. I found little of note in the flavours. A slight, very slight hint of nut and caramel. There was nothing hoppy in it at all. Very little carbonation. Overall a disgracefully poor beer, it has been a long time since I have given up half way and poured a drink down the sink.

"nice head, but the body clearly filtered - overly so. anything in the generic newcastle house malt flavor that works in a brown ale (by no stretch a greatbeer but not offensive) does NOT work in an ipa. this is actually laughable as an ipa, english style or not. little hop presence except to contradict the muddled malt flavor and add a touch of bitterness. this beer is a waste of time. got thrugh 10 oz of 12 before pouring. absolutely don;t get the higher scores."

weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAY 2, 2014
Bottle at home. Clear golden brown (top tune) with a medium rocky off white head. Aroma is malty, biscuits. Flavour is more malts, some sweetness, faint hops. Didn’t hate it but didn’t really enjoy it, needs more hops for my tastes.

Acknud (1081) - Morganfield, Kentucky, USA - MAR 9, 2014
Amber pour with small soft head. A little spicy but mostly malt with a nice clean bitter finish.

kappldav123 (5018) - GERMANY - MAR 3, 2014
Bottle looks very simple but okay. Beer in the glass deep golden-brownish, nice small head. Mild hoppy aroma. Starts mild, malty, modest hoppy-dry, mild grasy notes. Finish still mild, less intense hoppy. All in all okay, but the hoppy notes could be more dominating.

john44 (556) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 13, 2014
Bottle - Amber Gold in colour. Malty; caramel, sweet toasty malts. Fruity; hint of orange. Hoppy; very slight hop bitterness; almost undetectable. Cloyingly sweet malty faintly fruity throughout. Certainly not an IPA. Uninspiring.

Brandon1989 (240) - Euless, Texas, USA - JAN 7, 2014

Quack-Duck (7944) - Down South, GERMANY - DEC 28, 2013
bottle from Tesco Newton Abbot. Amber colour, small fluffy head. Malty with a touch of caramel, shy hoppy finish. Disappointing.

Bottle 355ml from Quack-Duck thanks ! A clear copper beer, nose is almost empty !! Aroma is on industrial caramel, some bitter hops but on the aroma side there is nothing, donno what they really wanted to do. The average UK pale ale are more hopy than this one, I haven’t felt the creamy finish. Anyway happy to had opportunity to get this bottle.
