Amazing this thing even gets an average of 1 or better. Lots of rotten skunk and nothing else going on with this. Might be the quickest drainpour ever.

Can from Pailhead. What a dissapointment. Medium amber colored. Lacking in aroma, flavor and palate. Complete absence of malt or hop. Poor effort.

Pailhead (6527) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - APR 15, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 18, 2005 Can: Smells like rotten applesauce with some light caramel. Pours and orangish-amber with a small soapy white head. Virtually no initial flavor. Has a real bad metallic apple hop finish. Absolutely awful and the lone downer in an otherwise very good night of tasting. I would prefer to drink Cave Creek Chili Beer if that gives anyone an idea of how much I dislike this beer.

This is surely an IPA from the motherland of IPAs sorry to say but Brckhouses IPA is still the best ive ever tastet. But a complex taste a bit of hops but not enough the bitternes is fine but flavour and aroma isnt. Low alkohol (3,6%) and that gives it a thin watery taste. The aftertaste is like a Carlsberg (and thats not a comliment)

Cask--Oh how a name can fool you. I wasnt expecting a ruination, but at least something with the flavor and aroma of hops would be nice, instead of just being used as a preservative. bland and boring.

Expected a lot more from a beer that rapidly grew to fame after Greene King lied about its apparent awards at the GBBF. Tasted from the bottle and can, and disappointed either way, it poured a beautiful auburn copper body, with little to no head. It looked like a pint of cola beer soda. Tangy, fruity hop and mildly sweet malty aroma. In the mouth, a sharp hop bite and watery mouth feel preceded burnt toffee, candy sugar sweetness, floral hop mid-palate and a short-lived, bitter swallow. If it wasnt watery thin and subtle in flavour, it may be a decent beer. But, alas another bog standard macro bitter, when it comes to bottling. Sales, I guess!!!

Why, oh why do british brewers insist on clear glass bottles? Slightly skunky aroma, reminded me of American lagers actually. Very light hints of crystal malts, not much in the hop department. Thin body doesnt help much. Very disappointing for something labeled an IPA in such an eye catching bottle.

highlandlad (1480) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - FEB 6, 2005
Disappointing lightweight English IPA from a brewer that can do a lot better. It poured a plummy brown colour with a thin head. The nose is rich and inviting, with hints of treacle toffee and dark rum. The skinny palate is where it falls down. Its far too thin for an IPA. The abv is also too low for the style. It has some light hoppiness and a dry finish. An easy quaffer but unsatisfying. (Can)
