3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
My Bottom Line:
Biscuity scones, mineral undercurrents and herbal hop bitterness converge in this creamy brew.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam covers the misty straw yellow.
-Citrusy hop edges are found.
-Drinkability is high.
-This isnít an IPA in the New World sense, obviously, and has to be approached as such.
On cask at The Bell & Crown, Canterbury.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask at the Wellington, Birmingham. Poured a crystal clear light amber with a bubbly white head. The aroma is stale malt and weak hops. The flavour is medium bitter. Medium bodied with a bitter liqourice palate and a long rather unpleasant bitter finish. Canít say I really enjoyed this too much. The aftertaste wasnít good. Itís refreshing but the hops donít really work for me. I need my pale ales to be a little more "pale"!
