Captain Cook IPA
Cask @ Dirty Dickís, Halifax. Lightly hazed golden ale with a creamy head. Itís crisp and arguably sessionable for its strength as thereís a mild citrus fruitiness here, with a smoothness when travelling down the palate.

Gorgeous dark copper hue, thin off white head, excellent clarity. Nose is toffee and biscuit, not much hop aromatics. Lovely deep malty and biscuity flavour, with some raisins developing in the latter stages. Long and smooth finish, with restrained bitterness featuring. Very nice bitter, like an Abbott Ale but with a little more bitterness.

The description of this beer from the brewery does not really do this beer justice, this is certainly a well hopped ale with a slightly cloudy pale golden colour. A well hopped beer which has a subtle bitterness to itís flavour and makes for a very refreshing beer ideal for those summer barbecues.

Overall there is no strong aroma and it at first seems like a weak beer, however after the first mouthful the strength seems to be magnified by the hoppy bitterness. This mid brown bitter is a classic session bitter. There is only a small head which fades quickly, at first there is a strong malty taste which becomes bitter over time.

There was a clear caramel and hoppiness to this beer. It is a smooth bitter which turns more bitter as it stands, on pouring there is a rich creamy head which remains until finished. The roasted grains make for a pleasant ale, definitely for the dark beer lover. Itís a good session beer, not overly strong but full of flavour!

This is a crystal clear, 4%, oak brown beer, with a caramel aroma and a smooth hoppy, bitter taste, becoming more bitter with a flavour of roasted grains. It is a pleasant ale, perfect for those who like a darker beer. On pouring there is only a very small cream head which fades quickly but continues to be lively on the tongue. A good take on an Irish Ale.

Pale and full bodied. New Zealand hops don't really shine through but they do add freshness and don't leave it sour like some at this strength. Not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Captain Cook Black Porter
Bottle from...oop north. Deep and oily with imaginary ruby glints at the edges and a dirty tan collar. Arresting, appetising aroma wafting with seashore brininess, coffee dolloped with butter, pippy black currants like you sometimes find added to an Indian dish, dark sticky dried things, musty old port. Slippery, complex dark brew with layers of sticky sweet sherry and port, chocolate yoghurt, kippery single malt stirred with liquorice falling into place. Smoke, butter and ink. Not often these days my descriptors really get pushed...but there are odd, unameable flavours swirling about here...all of them good. Deep, characterful porter with glints of complexity borrowed from a much stronger beer.
