jimmie65 (330) - Texas, USA - JAN 11, 2013
Hazy gold pour. Aroma is orange, floral. Mild, more like a pale ale. Good balance of sweet and bitter but I expected a little more bite. Smooth. Malt, citrus, a little caramel.

Una buona IPA dal colore giallo opaco e schiuma di buona persistenza. Amara senza esagerare, risalta molto il luppolo. Ben bilanciata.

Aggiebob (180) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - MAR 20, 2015
Bottle: Poured a golden orange with a white head. The aroma is floral, citrus, and a bit medicinal that lessens as it approaches cellar temperature. The medium body is slightly on the thick side and it has a minimal amount of carbonation. The finish was dry and only slightly bitter.

Sampled at tasting. Pours golden with white head. Aroma with some fruit and flower notes, some cereal and caramel. Taste is not so bitter and quite a well sized malt body.

500ml bottle. Pours a faintly hazy deep straw, with a white head. Hoppy, spicy, herbal aroma, malt, light caramel, citrus peel, grass, spruce. Dry, medium body and bitterness, balanced CO2. Hoppy, malty, grassy taste, caramel, spruce, herbs, orange peel, faint earthy notes, bergamot, floral notes in the finish. Dry and balanced, very English in style. Nice. (2015-02-08)

Alun jälkeen ei ollutkaan niin hyvä. Humala on hiukan lattea. Mukana mukava salmiakin maku.

jjsint (1253) - Ely, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - SEP 28, 2014
Bottle from Tesco, drunk at home. Orange-gold, hazy with plentiful carbonation. Aroma of apricot, lemon rind, Pixy Stix, a bit of toasty backbone. Taste is sweeter that expected, with a bit of fruity sour/bitter in the finish. Lemony bittersweet aftertaste. Nothing too special, but quite a good, dependable drink.

brnandersen (2405) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 27, 2014
50 cl. bottle. Clear, golden colour with an amber tint. Big, creamy white head. Fruity aroma with grasses, citrus, caramel malts, floral and herbal hops. Taste is bitter. Medium body with a creamy texture and an average carbonation. Finishes dry and bitter with grass, citrus and biscuits. Some herbal notes. Nice, classic styled English ESB/IPA - however, more bitter than usual.
