3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle - a clear ruby body with a thick foamy head which is lasting quite a while. A floral nose with some grass and sweetness there. The first taste is sweet, but goes into a bitter toffee-cum-caramel taste. Kinda oily and moderate carbonation, with a malty aftertaste. Not too bad, would possibly try again if I saw it.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Deep ruby colour. Toffee aroma with faint note of grass. Coppery metallic taste cuts into the caramel flavour. Overall tastes thin and weak. Needs more bittering hops. Not great.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma: Plum, caramel and grassy notes. Very malty.
Appearance: Clear, dark copper coloured body with a thin, light tan head. Medium carbonation. Good lacing.
Taste: Initial sweet malt taste, before the bitter finish. More like a bitter than an IPA.
Palate: Light body with a slick, oily mouthfeel. Lively carbonation.
Overall: A decent British IPA, though not the most memorable.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dark, dirty amber colour. Aroma of malt and bread and some fruit. Taste is sweet, caramely, bitterness and some fruit. I can’t say I particularly enjoyed this. It’s OK, but nothing more than that.

Quite a nice beer! Pours a lovely ruby body, head dissipates quickly. Lovely soft malty/bready aroma. Tastes quite creamy. This is a really sessionable IPA style beer... not too hard or too soft, just right!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle in the hotel room, Aberdeen. Pours clear copper with a fizzy, white head. Modest toasty malts with hints of leaves and fruits in the aroma. Lightly sweet flavor, some slight caramel malts, leafy bitterness. Light bodied with average, tingly carbonation. Light sweet finish, mild dryness, leaves, faint berries. Rather bland overall, but it’s drinkable.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle served cool. Dark Brown with a thin offwhite head. Definitely not Ruby Red. Aroma of hay and barnyard, taste of dried fruit and smoky leather. I have an aversion to smoky flavours in beer, so I might not be doing this justice. O.K. but a bit "meh". Good luck if it’s your bag.
