imdownthepub's rating

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 12/20
imdownthepub (14745) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, - NOV 14, 2012
Bottled, 330ml at The Beer Tree, Banbury. Gold with slight white head. Another thin, sweet beer unfortunately, fruity, wet cardboard with a sligh stale note. The hops never really show through the sugary note. Dull.

mR_fr0g (12567) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 2, 2016
Bottle at home picked up from Waitrose. A translucent dark orange / amber coloured pour with a lasting sticky white head. Aroma is tired malts, caramel and cola cubes, slight berry hop. Flavour is composed of semi sweet toasted toffee, harsh burnt sugar /. honey note, grassy, slightly metalic finish. Palate is semi sweet, moderate frothy carbonation. Not great.

Bottle from Ocado. Pours slightly cloudy orange amber with little head. Aroma thin with slight clementine. Taste strong bitterness with thick mouthfeel. Floral and citrus notes overpowered by the bitterness. Lacking subtlety and complexity that other IPAs offer.

Bottle. Bronze with a small head.Strange herb like flavour but not many hops which is amazing considering it is supposed to be an ipa. Lacks body and any kind of personality. Think this brewery should stick to its CAMRA ales and stop trying to jump on the craft beer bandwagon.

wheresthepath (2342) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JAN 20, 2015
Bottle, gift from Mum & Dad- Cheers. Hazy amber with a thick white head. Lemony caramel with a bit of bitter orange peel. Good full mouthfeel and nice and smooth. Pretty decent.

RichTheVillan (7905) - Birmingham, West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 21, 2014
Bottle from Ocado; clear amber pour with a big frothy off white head, earthy hop and malt aroma, taste is mostly malt forward with some fruit, moderate bitter finish.
