3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JAN 28, 2014 Pours pale, bright golden amber, with a brief, small white head. Mild hay and lemon gras aroma. Much more flavour on the palate: classic English IPA. Balanced hops and malt, with more grassiness and a bitter finish.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
7th December 2013
Bright clear pale gold beer with a small white head. Light crisp palate, semi dry with fine carbonation. Clean pale malt, a little dry. Hops are light but very pleasing in their lime - lemon character. There is a nice touch of piney sweetness as well. Finishes semi dry and medium bitter. Sank this in no time!

50 cl bottle, 6%. Golden color, clear, standard white head. Well hopped indeed, crisp and refreshing, vaguely grainy, citrusy, UK bitter style. Dry and light bodied, not excessively bitter, average carbonation, easy to drink. Can feel an hint of maize. Lack of fruity notes as other IPAs do.

UPDATED: SEP 5, 2013 I don’t like IPA style for strong hop notes, but this is not the worst hoppy beer i ever drunk... But anyway i don’t like this beer, golden color, hop aroma, not excessive bitter in mouth but hoppy and herbal aftertaste
