3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Ambrata chiara/dorata carica, schiuma e carbonazione basse.
Aroma delicato, erbaceo, floreale, cereali, da luppoli classici e maltato.
Sapore dolce di malto con finale amaro lungo, pungente. Una buona pale ale inglese, dissetante.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very much in the English style, rather than anything more modern and fruity. Looks like a light bitter, with a touch of white head, and very clear. Body is light but retains its flavour. Aroma has malt, apple and hedgerow fruit. Flavour carries on in the same vein with a touch of bitterness in the finish. Decent example of the style.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle from Waitrose. Dark gold, clear with a tiny amount of white head. Grassy and slightly astringent scent with floral notes and a hint of pine. Bitter taste with pronounced astringency. Stops short of being acrid though. Hint of tropical fruit in the aftertaste. This is actually pretty good.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
clear amber body, minimal off-white head; aroma of floral and toast notes, some bread and fruitiness; taste of malty sweetness, toast notes, hints of honey and nuts; something is missing, what would make it a good (or at least enjoyable...) IPA

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From a 50cl bottle. Amber colour with an off-white head. Malty aroma. The taste is fruity and sweet with a honeyed flavour. Notes of apples and blackberries and a refreshingly dry finish. A good English IPA, well-made and full of flavour.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
It is a good "English" I.P.A of course you cannot feel the hop like an American. There is a right balance with the hop and the cereal and it is bitter. Of course, it my opinion only.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
BOTTLE 50 CL. Nice clean pale malts in the nose and in the taste, light fruity notes and big harsh bitter finish. Not much else. More like a bitter, than what we think is an IPA today.
