a sweetish beer with a distinct vegetable soup character which i usually abhor, this brew adds a creamy fruity character as well as a yeasty sugar sweetness that i enjoyed. a bit of bitter hop at the end. interesting.

Draft. Pours gold with a white head. Grainy and pale malts, earthy floral hops, light biscuity notes, and lingering pale malts in the finish. Not bad.

Pours a clear orange with small head that faded into a film quickly. pine citrus, honey mild but nice, nothing intense. Tastes are well balanced between the hop and malt profiles, just the right amount of bitterness and sweetness makes it really easy drinking. Medium bodied and well carbonated. Overall I like this beer a lot and think it is a fantastic example of the style.

My Bottom Line :
This leafy IPA also displays orange tea-like flavors before moving into an earthy hop bitterness.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-A creamy, rocky head of foam decorates the misty bronze.
-This was a very well tendered cask. A great find in Barcelona, for sure.
-Malts are lightly honeyed and biscuity; they could be better defined.
-This might not be their best effort, but it’s still a very solid IPA.

On cask at The George and Dragon, in Barcelona.

Smell of hops and some fruit, maybe citrus and cherry. Hoppy taste, although a small bitterness, with some caramel and fruit. Fruit and berries. A nice beer.

Strong take on an ’English-Style’ IPA. While there is not much to distinguish this from the genre-defining Fuller’s ESB, this beer does have a stronger hop aroma profile and, on cask at least, is a bit more lively on the tongue (not necessarily a good thing, but still different). Well done.

Yay! A beer! On tap at God’s bar aka Three Boars. The excellent duo of Chad & Chuck are holding the place together. Really - one of the best places in the city. Has a bright light amber hue. Caramelly orange lemon sweet and mostly refreshing and a splash of honey in the nose. The taste is good and so easy to drink but simple, dull on occasion yet just bitter and tangy enough to work on this hot ass day. Caramel and malt - neither come across overly sweet yet it’s there, mineraly water, lightly peppery spice, tang, sort of nectarine fruity stuff with an unsweetened grapefruit base. Finishes sweetish and malty with slight fruit and a wandering bitterness. Not bad but is not about make me have cumsies in my cotton granny panties. They say that the mind is the nourishment of the soul and, well, after my yoga class I’d have to say that beer is the nourishment of the liver. Oh fuck balls - having a beer cocktail with some grapefruit liquor and lost coast indica IPA - beat that anyone else in business in the city.

500ml bottle pours a pale amber color with a 2 finger white head that settles quite quickly leaving a few spots of lacing. Aroma is light grapefruit and caramel. Taste is grapefruit bitterness balanced with a caramlel malty sweetness. Overall, quite a nice a refreshing full flavored ale.

mrmartin (780) - New York, New York, USA - JUL 12, 2012
Very British and classic. Clear copper pour. Flat no head. Faint malty nose. Honeyed malts and piney hops.Smooth bitter finish. Well balanced, definitely true to style but lacking the punch you’re used to.

brugmanneke (283) - GERMANY - JUL 10, 2012
(50 cl bottle) Amber-golden colour, small white head. Typical Fuller’s yeast aroma (wood, resinous, autumn leaves), english hops. Very well-balanced. Light-bodied. Bitter taste. Bitter finish with long-lasting aroma on the palate. Very good!
