500ml Bottle - NIce golden copper body with a medium fluffy white head with a little retention and lacing. Lots of fruit in the aroma: passion fruit, grapefruit, citrus in general. Creamy palate with some noticeable carbonation. The flavour is a repeat of the aroma but with a nice bitter finish and quite prominent alcohol. Quite good.

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.

Bottle from the shop on Holy Island, served cool. Orange with a fluffy white head. Burnt Sugar aroma. Orange marmalade and marzipan in the flavour, with some zesty floral hops. Definitely an English version of an IPA. Nice alcohol kick. I’ve yet to be disappointed by this brewery. rafael52 (1398) - Łódź, POLAND - MAR 1, 2015
Barwa: ciemno złota, lekko mętna, opalizująca. chriso (7533) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 11, 2004
Piana: bardzo obfita, kremowa, drobnopęcherzykowa, szybko się dziurawi i opada oblepiając szkło.
Zapach: średnio intensywny, na pierwszym planie aromaty chmielowe, trochę owoców z akcentami kwiatowymi i ziołowymi, w tle nuty słodowe i drożdżowe.
Smak: dość wytrawne, głównie nuty słodowe z kontrą goryczkową na średnim poziomie w kierunku niskiego, wyczuwalne są również posmaki drożdży.
Wysycenie: średnie, piwo wychodziło po otwarciu.
UPDATED: FEB 20, 2010 Bottled - leftover from DC gathering. Clouded orange colour. Lots of hop - pine, resin and citrus (orange). Very American pale/IPA in style. Some yeast and pale malt is evident in the flavour. Noticeably bitter. Enjoyable. (8/3/7/4/15 = 3.7)

RE-RATE. Cask (gravity dispense) at the Great British Beer Festival Day 2, August 2009 as Magnificat. Didn’t realize this was the same beer as St Cuthbert, which I had already rated. Amber colour. No head but quite lively condition. Fairly restrained aroma. Some sweetish fruity notes on the palate but finishes fairly dry. Long, fruity aftertaste. Very easy drinking for the strength. Not as much presence as expected. Not much like an APA either. (7/3/7/3/13 = 3.3)
Original score retained.
UPDATED: JUL 11, 2010 0.5l Bottle. Pours amber, slightly murky with a good frothy white head. Aroma is herbal, resiny hops and a sweet caramel background. Taste is really quite good, similar herbal and resiny hops throughout, quite a sweet and malty background then a slightly citrus, strongly hopped finish with some alcohol. Really nice.

Bottle Conditioned. Pours a cloudy dark golden colour. Has a real fruity hoppy aroma. The flavour has plenty of fruit with a long lasting bitterness.

Cask, Conditioned at The Royal Oak, Wantage. Gold with white head. Quite a sweetish, despite the above description, hopped beer with a citrus orange character. Light malts and very decent and drinkable for a higher ABV beer. Good stuff. daniele (9018) - ITALY - JAN 2, 2010
