Bottle, 500ml. A clear pale straw colour with no head. Aroma of fresh grassy hops, a little citrus. Flavour is a little hoppy with citrus, a little malt and caramel. Watery on the palate. Moderate carbonation. Slight bitterness in the finish. Not an IPA and not interesting as a bitter.

One thing which is really annoying me about London is the fact there are so many beers labeled as IPA which are in fact Bitters. This is one of them. Very caramelised nose and malt driven. Slightly nutty with hints of lemon zest. Taste is quite biscuity with loads of lemon and lime, light pepper, lemon rind. Clean and balanced is a plus. Just doesnt do it for me considering what I was expecting

Bottled 12/08/13. An orange gold coloured beer with pretty much no head. Definite Goldings fruity character with a bit of sticky malt. Pretty tasty and well brewed although the nose does have a fusty character.

Gentle malty nose with not much hops to speak of. Pours slightly muddy gold with a bit of a dishwatery vibe. The taste is ok - pleasant bitterness and a nice hoppy finish but sadly the whole is slightly undermined by a wateryness and a thinness in the mouthfeel. In summary its a fine example of a session bitter, but as theyve badged it as an IPA Ill assess it on those terms and it falls short.

Cask. Golden yellow. Dense white head that stays and laces. Aroma is light. Grassy and hint of citrus Taste is slightly sweet floral start with hop bitterness at the end. Pleasant enough but it is a bitter - no way an IPA

Weak and mild Indian Pale Ale style ale. It has little to no flavour at all.
