3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pint glass. A huge off white head takes plenty of time to settle. The second pour had the same result. The beer under it is clear amber. This beer is malt forward and resembles a low ABV barleywine meets English bitter. Hops are somehow European while not really bring fruit. Wood and bread flavors. Some brown sugar, too. This is a huge difference from a US west coast IPA. The finish got thin.

The beer pours a reddish gold colour, mainly clear, and topped with a 1" off-white head. The aroma was caramel, floral hops, and grains. Not a citrusy note to be noted. The mouthfeel was medium bodied with average carbonation. The flavour was burnt grains, caramel, and musty hops. Sessionable, but far from outstanding.

Bottle from Tesco. It pours deep amber with a thick white head. The nose breas, toasted cereal, light spice and earth. The taste is bitter, earthy, spice, mild caramel, floral and toast with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Well rounded. Not bad for what it is.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Tesco, Penarth on 21.08. Pours crystal clear, amber coloured, with big creamy head. Relatively high carbonation. Aroma not too strong, spicy (cinammon) and sweet, almost like childrens medicine. Some broad malty character underneath. Taste starts balanced with bittersweet finish. Not spectacular.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Serving: bottle. Slightly hazy dark amber pour. Large but fleeting head. Earthy hops and caramel nose. Pleasant bread, caramel, earthy hops, and a very slight tang I can’t place. Dry finish. Thin on the tongue but highly drinkable. Certainly respectable.

Picked this up in poland after reading all about it in cams book. good to finally taste it. pours amber with a big foamy head. starts off fizzy but without a lot of aroma. mildly hoppy and peppery. taste is a smooth balance of hops and malts. caramel, pear, spices. its punchy for an english beer but it fizzled out quite fast. i guess literally its an ipa but it feels more like a bitter. anyway doesnt matter, im gonna play darksouls. i never did get past the bit in the crypt so lets fucking goooooooooo
