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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear deep golden with a large rocky ivory head. Big English pale malty aroma with a smooth nutty caramalt tone, and a light grassy hop kiss. Full and smooth flavor that’s bread toasty, with only a kiss of grassy hops. Pleasant mild doughy caramel-ish sweetness.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle 0,50L. Clear orange color with thin, long lasting, off-white head. Weak aroma of roasted malts with caramel, herbs and some fruits. Taste starts light bitter and caramely. Finish turns to moderate bitter with burnt caramel bitterness. Medium body, dry texture, soft carbonation. Not bad...

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
I like flavour but not so as to be overpowering, this beer is just right, quaff-able.

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

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.
