3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Apparently, according to the bottle, this is the oldest version of India Pale Ale there is. Pours with a ton of carbonation, the quickly expanding foam is almost unmanageable. The head is nice and pillowy though. The nose is weak, sweet malts and a hint of citrus. The taste is surprisingly subtle, with a really nice balance between hops and malts which means its very drinkable. It has notes of citrus, apricot, caramel and honey. I’d get another pint of this anytime, really solid offering.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma of weak shoe polish, nice foamy and creamy head. Bitter on the palate not lasting. Taste fades quickly. More taste on the froth than in the body. A bit too much like a bitter and not an IPA. Too much ABV for the style also.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Jun. ’16. A 0.5 l bottle that poured a clear golden body with a medium sized head. A bit of caramel, bread and some herbal aroma. Fine bitter roasted flavor, bread, roasted caramel and apple/other fruity with vague herbal hop notes, too. Medium body. Finished long, bitter herbal and papery. Although rater simple, it’s a decent bitter with straightforward bitterness.

Prima Engelse ale maar verder niet echt soepel. Beetje te smeeuigheid voor mijn smaak

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pivo brončane boje, sa gustom prljavo bijelom pjenom. Dosta karbonizirana pa podriguješ ko lud. Slabi miris borovine.
Iako piše na etiketi nešto i IPAi ovo je tipični primjerak engleskog bittera sa gorkim finishom u okusu.

1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bought in supermarket, fancy bottle design and sticker. Weak aroma, instable foam and watered taste. Attractive golden colour though. Would not recommend it to experienced IPA drinkers.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at home, supermarket bought. Pours amber in colour, with a larger and rockier head than I expected. Settles to a nice collar of foam. The typical aroma of nutty, slightly peppery hop and sweet malt. Taste is a little sweet to start, then nicely bitter. Lots of flavour - sappy malt, peppery hop, some herbal bitterness and slight, fino sherry finish. Smooth and drinkable, but nicely carbonated. Very nice indeed.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tres legerement ambrée, grosse carbo, collet moyen persistant.
Aromes plus porté sur le caramel et sur les céréales.
Amertume bien presente mais assez discrete et sans le cote citronne ou exotique des versions americaines. Bel equilbre, bien agreable

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear, dark amber color, topped with a medium sized and creamy head, just off-white. Nice retention. Mild biscuity malt aroma with a bit of grassiness in the back. Moderately sweet. Biscuity malt with some caramel presence and a mild hoppy bitterness in the finish. Medium light body. Ok.
