3.6
DanielBrown (4513) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 27, 2012
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Clear gold, no head. This struck me as more of a Golden than a IPA. Hops are more backgroundish, rather than being the main feature. Smooth, easy drinking yes, but in this case easy drining means that the tongue is not stunned by overt hop content. Certainly pleasant, but not a show stopper.

3.8
Lowenbrau (4361) - Asturias, SPAIN - SEP 2, 2013
50cl bottle @Delrium Cafe, Hoppy Loft, Brussels. Fruity, peachy, herbal and fresh aromas. Pours golden, little hazy, with nice white head, creamy, frothy, good lacing. Light body, a bit oily in texture, average carbonation. Taste is fruity, smooth,mild bitter. Balanced. Some liquorice aftertaste and some more bitterness. Nice and enjoyable.

3.4

Bottle 50 cl, Westholme Stores. Pours murky orange amber with a small bubbly/creamy beige head leaving lace. Aroma is caramel, sweet malty, bready, fruity Flavor is sweet, fruity, apples, pears, piny and bitter. Finishes longlived bitter with a fruity touch.
