1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
A mid brown coloured beer with a weak white head. A slightly funky sulphurous aroma on opening the bottle. This does settle down to let a pithy hop aroma to come through, there is also a faint maltiness in the background. Dry mouthfeel. The taste follows on from the aroma. Although there’s elements of grassy, hop and mild biscuity malt, the sulphurous funkiness is still present, not doing the beer any favours. The finish is weak. Bottle bought from Lidl, Fakenham as "Dad’s Delight"

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Lidl as Dad?s Delight, standard Shep?s aroma and palate, a bit two-dimensional, but crisp, hoppy and quaffable.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
99p bottle from Lid as "Dad’s Delight". Bright bronze with a slender white foam. Aroma of thistle, aniseed, pine cone and wet stones. Gentle watery Allsorts and caramel on slate flavour finished generously with bitterness. Fresh bread and caramel popcorn aftertaste. Not as good as I’m making it sound but drinkable all the same.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUL 16, 2014 Aroma: Fruity, Caramel, toasty
Appearance: Clear light amber. Small, long lasting white head.
Flavour: Caramel, medium bitterness, medium sweetness, biscuit, light hop flavours, light resin, fruity
Palate: Medium body, creamy carbonation
Overall: I think it needs a bit more hops (even for an ENGLISH IPA). My beer may be old (can’t find the BB date to confirm) and that would explain the lack of hoppiness in bitterness and flavour. Still a lovely beer and I would drink a few
500 ml bottle, poured. Thanks Andre!

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from local supermarket. Poured a clear, dark orange colour with a dense white head and visible force carbonation. Mild aroma of some floral hop, bready malt and straw. Some grassy hop flavour mixed with sugary sweetness and cream soda notes. Finish was typical pasteurised affair; carbonated water with residual malt.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle @ Chriso’s Pre-GBBF Shindig. The pour’s brown with a tight head. Lemon cake on the nose. A bit of woody hops. Toffee. The taste is of stale raisin bread. Soft earthy hoppiness. Pretty meek, lacks character. Light body, soft carbonation. Meh.
