   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 14/20
DruncanVeasey (7633) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, - NOV 14, 2012
330ml bottle- clean gold/translucent orange, depending on the steadiness of your hand. Slightly vomit-speckled, regurgitated peach and honey throatsweet aroma; obvious booze, lemon zest, tropical fruits struggling to rise above the booze. Soapy, perfumed, honey and lemon throatsweet flavour with a trace of malt nuttiness on the swallow. Hops strangled by honey, shampoo, cake, throatsweets, neat orange cordial, shower gel. Call me an old fart but a typical 4% Oakham/Mallinsons/Marble/Dr Morton’s golden ale is hoppier than this (annoying rise in inflection)...because it tastes more like hops? Hops unmuddied by all else. And hops is (predominantly) what I want from an IPA, any IPA. I know what I like/I like what I know, etc, etc.
