3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: AUG 7, 2015 0.5 bottle from britishstore.hu, labelled as Fuller’s India Pale Ale. Starts with a nice head but quickly vanishes. Head has mildly bitter taste with malty and fruity notes. Colour is a bit darker than a pilsner, but fairly pale altogether. The taste is a balanced British ale on the bitter side, with moderate fruity notes plus some caramel maybe. Carbonation is OK, could be milder but becoes fairly silky in the end. Nice bitterish aftertaste. Well balanced, nice stuff.
(Rerated on 8 August, very nice malty finish with silky mouthfeel and balanced frouty hoppiness, raise the score a bit. A fine beer.
