Nose is mango, some citrus. Taste is lightly hoppy, lemon balm slight mango, grassy, slightly bitter finish. Mouthfeel is appropriate. It’s drinkable, but not hoppy enough for an American style IPA but slightly to hoppy for an old school English IPA.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bright gold without a trace of sediment under a slim white halo. Decent mellow lychee and peaches in syrup aroma. That flavour with hints of lemon sponge, peach jelly, elderflower backed by punchy bitterness and resounding husk. Not bad- on the cusp of GA/APA having (I suspect) received an intensive makeover.

Good beer, a little too much caramel, perhaps, but good, if somewhat modest hops and a fruity note combine well. Simple artwork doesn’t work for me.

Amber with loose soapy looking head that almost dies completely. Quaffable indeed. Not what expected but nice and moreish. Not as hoppy as I thought it would be . Expected more of a flavour explosion but this probably made it more session able. Nice bottled conditioned ale from tesco. Tastes like a light golden bitter with a wee hoppy kick to me . Not too much IPA going on but enjoyed
