3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from the Cromwell Road Sainsbury’s. Pours light amber with a slight white head. Aroma is floral over light caramel. Med body. Flavor is light caramel with some bitter hop that seems citrus with a little floral tagging along. It is classically bitter. My tongue says that to me. In the bitter finish the malt becomes a slight roast. IPA? Pretty tasty whatever. (just noticed this is an ESB - that fits much better than IPA)

Dark golden colour. Aroma is lightly floral and a bit fruity. Flavour has initial malty taste. Some hop fruitiness, a bit peachy. Overall there’s a metal taste ruins the beer’s finish.

Not very complicated but very serviceable. I enjoyed light floral hoppy top notes, with a little bit of a grassy ending.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
For a generic store brand beer this IPA has all the qualities that one should. With a smooth and fruity flavor and bitter palate. It appears light brown with a small head and has a nice smooth aroma to boot!

Has a mild IPA aroma, but generally low on IPA character. Golden with no head but drinkable.

Looks and smells like most of the ales. Taste is not as bitter I would like it to be. There is a little more hops than in a typical super market lager, but othervise this goes to that gategory. Mostly boring, which is better than bad.
