3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma was sweet, biscuity even cake like from the malt. The flavour was perfectly balanced by zesty, lightly spicy hops. Lightly sweet and lightly bitter, a very refreshing brew.

Couleur ambrée, forte mousse qui disparait. Nez leger caramel blond. Gout caramel et mal toasté avec houblon citronné et herbeux. Corps assez léger. Petite amertume en fin de bouche. Pas exeptionelle pour le style

Sampled from a bottle from Tesco’s. Copper colour with a white head. Not much aroma, but hints of toffee and honey. Taste is full and malty with plenty of fruity hops giving a good bitterness. Hints of lemon intermingled with the other flavours and a good mouthfeel. A tasty English bitter. Congratulations to Bruce Dickinson of Iron Maiden. is there no end to his talents?

Bottle, 500 ml. Aroma a bit wanting. Head fades quickly. Colour amter and nice. Tastes a bit too sweet for an IPA. But it is nice and hoppy.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Rated on 9-10-2015. This canned beer pours a very small off-white head with a long retention, gold transparent body, fast rising carbonation, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is citrus hops, grassy, sweet, fruity, spicy, and malt. The flavor is citrus hops, spicy, semi-sweet, fruity, and malt. This beer’s mouthfeel is smooth with some light carbonation. It is a light-medium bodied beer. This is a session beer that I was not impressed with the flavor.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nice malty nose with some dry wood and lager yeast notes. Beautiful crystal clear medium yellow/amber with a white head. Fairly straight forward English ale with toast and bread malt flavor and a relatively strong bitterness for this type. Finishes crisp and clean. Nice, refreshing.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle shared at a friend’s house. Pours orange with thin diminishing white head. Totally watery, almost no aromas, some hints of lemon and citrus. Soft carbonation, thin texture with dry-bitter finish. Nothing special. Bruce Dickinson should stick to his singing....

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Served from 0.5 L bottle, light brown ale with a white head. Aroma is dominated by malt but the hops are also present. Tastes slightly sweet, medium bitter, well balanced with the malty body. Long bitter finish. Little to watery texture for me with soft carbonation.
I had higher expectations especially regarding the hops but overall not bad.
