3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Amber colour beer with small head. Biscuit aroma. The taste is a lot of biscuit with some hops and some citrus notes. Medium bodied. An OK beer but for me the biscuit aroma and taste is too predominant.

Transparent red gold, strong white head. Hoppy, spicy aroma. Caramel, toffee, bitter notes - but not quite IPA bitter to my taste. Good, though. Nice spicy caramel finish. I could do with another.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
To my taste this is a quite basic IPA. Not special in any way, but not bad either. Would hope for some "twist" in the taste.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A dark brown beer, a head is medium and blond. The nose has caramell, some wood, berries. Basic brittish. Taste has caramell malts, some wood and fruits, medium bitterness that dries the taste almost dry. Medium bodied, surprisingly also some alcohol. This beer is filled up with basic brittish nuancees, but nicely fresh.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
A classic India Pale Ale: amber in colour, really strong and malty aroma. intensively bitter at the same time, the bitterness offers some hints of citrus and pine. Long lasting finish! Still it comes well-balanced.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours amber with a small, light tan head. Light hoppy aroma with some pine notes. Taste is bitter but not too overpowering, other than that it’s somewhat weak. Mouthfeel is soft, slight carbonation. It lacks a bit as both an IPA and an ale, and as a combination of the two it’s not too impressive. Alright for sure, but nothing to write home about. For the price (3,5eur a bottle) I’d say it’s not worth it.
