3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Looks nice in a glass, and has lots of banana-smelling esters that foreshadow the balanced yet wet flavor of this beer. First sip, hmmm this isn’t what I was expecting, no hop kick on the back of the tongue. Second sip, okay, this is getting a little better. Third sip; wow, I see why they drink this in england. Really enjoyable banana esters that don’t permeate the mouth totally, but warm the mouth instead. enjoyable

Clear orange golden color with a fine frothy white head. Nice lacing. Looks good. Moderate intensity in the aroma. Medium body and a smooth fine carbonation. Ok balance between sweetness and bitterness. Caramel malty, herbal and mild citric flavor.

I suppose this is what an old school IPA should be before the Americans wan away with the hope. This is a mellow ale with some slight hood bitterness. Very refreshing and session able.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 20/20
I firmly believe one of the worlds best beers. Not at all like an American IPA. It has a totally different hop character thanks to British hops. It's actually one of the most well balanced hoppy beers you'll find.
