COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottled, filtered, Occasional;
The purest spring water drawn from the River Otter is used to brew this traditional 19th Century-style IPA with a bit of a twist. Handcrafted with English floor malts and our very own yeast, we have added five of the US Pacific Northwest’s most citrus-flavored, aromatic whole cone hops to create a new, complex, highly drinkable beer.

Non-IPA aroma of caramel malts and dark fruits. Murky brown color, body is sedated. Slightly hoppy flavor, mainly sweet malts.Easy drinking for the most part, a touch of heaviness. Classic English ale, feature a ’Hoppy Otter’ right on it.

Cloudy light brown beer with an amber hue. No head. Rich malty nose. Low carbonation semi dry palate. Rich malt with slightly seared and bitter orange. The two elements are well balanced. The orange gets richer, marmalade like, sweeter too. Finishes semi dry. Sumptuous flavour and very drinkable.

imdownthepub (9954) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 8, 2011
Bottled, 500ml from Beer of Europe, Norfolk. Hazed amber with white head. Sweet, caramel, toffee malting, quite heavy on the palate, with an over ripe strawberry fruitiness, not as sharp as you would expect an IPA to be. Some aromatic type hops, they struggle a little with the sweet malts, but quite drinkable all the same.

Papsoe (25090) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 3, 2011
Bottle 50 cl. Courtesy of madmitch76. Pours a cloudy amber with a small rough off-white head. Somewhat citrusy aroma, but also somewhat greasy. Solid carbonation, carbonation is a little low. Sweet fruit and caramel, the hops are slightly citrusy but aroma-wise they are pretty downplayed. Ends fairly bitter. Not too bad though. 030511

Bottle. Still looking very thickly bodied amber beer with very little head. The aroma is well hopped, and the flavour is very well hopped and slightly floral. Overall a nice well hopped and bitter beer.
