COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Filtered
Full and rounded like an Indian new moon, this new breed is a modern twist on Indian Pale Ale. Jammed with fruity flavour and tantalising bitterness.

thmsboyd (67) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - MAR 15, 2015
Bottle BBE: Apr 16. Well-chilled. Pours a clear, bright amber body with a small off-white head. Smells malty with biscuit aromas, some marmalade and piney hop character. Low to medium intensity on the nose. Light sweetness and a medium to high bitterness. Light bodied with a resinous texture. Medium carbonation for style. Overall a very bland bitter.

MichaelAwesome (5110) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JAN 1, 2015
Classic british style bitter with some hops, grass and easy drinkabilty. Smooth on the tongue, quaffy and refreshing. Not rocket science but its freshness hits the points well.

McTapps (5122) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - JAN 1, 2015
Bottle from Britische Biere in Düsseldorf. The beer has got a clear amber colour with an low head and medium body. Aroma of hops and bread. Taste of hops, malt, mild fruits, nuts, woods and mild pine. Malty bitter finish. Solid and drinkable Ale.

Quite a nice bottle, a bit of the floral IPA aroma that isn’t that common in British IPAs.

jamestulloch (1826) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 26, 2014
Bottle. Clear golden body with a thin white head. Steady carbonation. Light lacing. Aroma of metal, tinned peach and grain. Flavour of watery grain, cigarette butts and a sour finish - horrible. Thin body with a watery texture. Fizzy carbonation. I never trust a sub 5.0% beer advertised as an IPA.

harrisoni (14584) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 24, 2014
Bottle from Mouton Rouge Canterbury and drunk at home. Clear amber lasting off white head. Tastes a bit pasteurised, bit tired. Has some hops, but it’s all a bit empty. Not great.

gegwilson (1746) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 8, 2014
Bottle from a Glasgow ASDA. Golden with a thin off-white head. Lots of washing up liquid citrus in both aroma and flavour. Quite light and refreshing. I didn’t dislike it as much as some seem to have. OK.
