Bright clear gold - amber beer, tidy cream colour head. Palate is light and crisp. Mild minerals. Airy malts, little creamy sweetness. Hops are pretty light - mild citrus, touch of marmalade. Light semi dry finish brings a little dry floralness. Fine.

SlackerMads (1609) - Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 6, 2014
Bottle. Labels doesn’t say anything about being original, so I guess I got the unoriginal version. Pours clear orange/hazelnut brown with a medium sized diminishing good lacing off white head. Pine, cheese, caramel in the nose. Flavour has cheesy hops, caramel, bread and some plastic notes to it. Has a good balanced bitterness and a good mouthfeel, so that part works, but the flavour isn’t exactly bursting with fresh hops.

MichaelAwesome (4082) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - SEP 1, 2014
Vom Tesco in Eastbourne. Klassiches IPA mit etwas Hopfen, ein wenig an Zitrusfrüchten und feiner Balance. Süffig, mild, lecker. Keine Raketenwissenschaft, aber ein angenehm trinkbares Piwo.

Bottle from Tesco in Eastbourne. Pours out in a light ahzy golden-light amber colour with low airy head and medium body. Aroma of fresh hops and spruce. Taste of fresh, but mild hops, pine, herbs, mild spices, citrus fruits and light malt. Refreshing and not that bad.

355ml bottle from Tesco, Hermiston Gait. Pours clear amber, no head, big bubbles. Aromas of honey, floral hops. minerals and light orange. Taste has more orange, but not in a bitter way, more honey sweetness. Oily texture, thin finish. OK.
