3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle. Aroma: embarrassed to say that very first impression is that it smells like Steinlager (but costs four times as much), after tasting there is more to enjoy about it - malt syrup I had as a child, toffee, band aid (I cant explain why that is a pleasant aroma to me, it just is), dough yeast, dry grass, delicate almost mouldy tangerine, pine. Appearance: nice clear warm amber hue with large off-white fluffy sea-foam diminishing head and foamy lacing. Taste: mild sweetness which is quickly overtaken by moderate bitterness with a long duration, a touch of sourness. Palate: light medium body, smooth lightly creamy texture, tingly carbonation, long dry slightly astringent finish. Overall: nice enough, the "generous addition of hops" as described on the label must have been left out of batch 1243 :). Different to most IPA’s I have had.

Can from Coppers, Newcastle. Hazy amber coloured with a thin white head. It has a slight sour tart citrus fruity flavour with toffee and biscuit notes on the tart woody finish. Although this beer was purchased only a couple of weeks before it was drank, it may be on the turn.

Can. Clear amber beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is airy and mildly crisp. Light pale malt bring modest creamy sweetness. Light floral start to the hops, leading to super mild lime and mint. Smooth finish. Very polite IPA, perhaps a little too laid back.
