A classic IPA. Pale amber in colour with a refreshing fruity nose and a fruity hoppy hit. This style of ale is experiencing a renaissance amongst British brewers and rightly so.

Draft. Lite småtråkig. Inget extra. Bra beska men smaken i övrigt väldigt anonym. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pigs Ear. Hazy gold beer. Good suddy head. Light dry palate. Grapefruit grassy bitter hops with a sharp edge. Repressed sweet pineapple. Definite smoky note throughout. A little apple as well. Very dry finish and a lingering bitter aftertaste. Too dry and too smoky.

DonMagi (5593) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 6, 2009
Cask in the Market Porter. Alround rating: Ash tray, massivly bitter, like chewing on a cigarette bud thats been sitting in a bottle overnight and you’ve made the mistake of taking a drink. Words fail me on this beer.

Cask conditioned handpump Malt Shovel, Northampton A gold coloured beer with some citrus hoppy notes in the nose together with grass and a hint of diacetyl. Very bitter to the taste and quite sharp. Big hop in the mouth which becomes prickly.
