2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Golden, thin white head. Nice lacings. Smells of burned malts, caramel and yeast. Taste has sweetness of malts, not much else. Some bitterness in finish but i think the standard english bitter taste of burned malts are totally dominating here. Dry feel.
This tastes much more like a standard cheap bitter. Maybe it’s not as it should be. What i had was definitivly not an IPA

On tap at Tre Små Rum. Clear amber color, big white head.
Fresh hoppy aroma with sweet tones. Taste of caramel and fruity hops. Dryhopped finish. A good one, but not up there at the top.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Golden with a very dense white head. Has that typical old English feeling to it, kind of a mix of old fruits, damp leaves and dust. Nicely fresh and floral bitter finish though.

Pours crystal clear copper coloured with a small sized but long lasting head. Peach and apricots and pine in aroma. Grassy flavor with caramell and maltiness. Nice bitter finish although with a faint vegetable note in aftertaste. Low carbonated. A rather nice IPA

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at Haket, Göteborg, courtesy of and shared with gnoff (thank!)
Poured a dark amber body with a nice, big thick white head. Soft honeyish nose with some orange-like hoppy hints. Melony sweet malty taste, ashy bitter dry hop. Simple, balanced nice pleasant beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at Bishops Arms, Malmö. Clear, warm golden pour. Nice aroma of toast, caramel and hops. Taste has a bit of nuttiness together with butter, plum, citrus and resin. A generous amount of hops gives it balance and a bit dry and bitter finish. Body is too light for my taste but otherwise an ok IPA. A bit forgetable though.
