kappldav123 (4596) - Nordhausen, 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.

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 havenít felt the creamy finish. Anyway happy to had opportunity to get this bottle.

floydisbest (8) - - OCT 5, 2013 does not count
Aroma is a bit bready and roasty, not very IPAish, although it obviously should be. Doughy, almost skunky aroma. The appearance is pretty much completely brown, although itís not a thick brown, itís fairly transparent and clear. The taste has a light sweetness and medium-heavy bitterness. Body is lighter, with a thin texture and average/above average carbonation factor. The finish follows through with the aroma and initial hit to the palate, pretty astringent tasting, takes a bit to clear.
