Bottle in Spainsbury’s beer-off. Shining gold without inclusions under a skim of white froth. Aroma initially canned corn and phosphorous warming into more promising English woodland and mandarin. Taste: good tangy satsuma hop rounded with lingering malt suggesting cashew. More of that slightly dank English woodland taste I can’t quite capture: Coombe Abbey? Creamy mouthfeel, dabs of heat, peach, well-poised bittersweetness, almond. Slightly saline. Not bad.

Piwo złote, klarowne. Piana obfita, drobnopęcherzykowa, jednak szybko opada do obrączki. Lepi szkło. W zapachu delikatne cytrusy i niestety wyraźny aceton. W smaku wyraźna goryczka. Lekko zalegająca. Wysycenie średnie. Wytrawne, by nie powiedzieć wodniste.

Aroma weak, sweet, bit fruity, some alcohol too. Nice golden color, clean. Foam very short, weak lacing.
Taste strong, a bit of bananas, some spices (coriander), nice, pretty strong bitterness. Some alcohol again...
Nothing special, decent beer tho.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at GBBF. A kind of pale strong ale with thick but loosely structured, off-white head and hazy peach blonde colour. Aroma of field flowers representing noble European hop character, hints of strawberry and biscuit, roses, fried egg, some white bread. Dryish taste (this is apparently gluten free) with a malt fruity edge, some sweetness coming through, bit oily mouthfeel, light floral hop bitterness with an earthy bittering character but perhaps lacking some retronasal aroma. English style IPA alright, but too subdued in hop character to stand up against the new American IPA wave even for this substyle.
