one of the berst english ales when kept properly. A beautiful dark amber brew that’s not really an IPA, but is a wonderfully pleasurable, intensely hoppy experience. Try it in East Anglia on tap, not from a bottle in New York, please!

En IPA for masserne. Smager godt som en IPA skal, men ikke det helt store særlige.

Pours dirty brass with a fast-fading thin head, no lace. Faint aroma of grapefruit hops and caramel. Taste is citrusy bitter against a backdrop of malt, caramel, chocolate, coffee and bitter herbs. Godd bitter aftertaste. Palate is solid with a nice full body and a dry finish that left me always wanting another sip.

Aroma: Honey, earthy, musty, bread, toffee, Appearance: Clear copper body, medium off-white head. Lacing. Flavour: Medium-light bitterness, Light sweetness. bread, fruity, medium finish Palate: Light body. Medium-high carbonation Overall: Definitely a good beer to introduce someone to IPA. Focusing on bitterness, but still very close to a Bitter. I like it! 500 ml bottle, poured. Thanks Andre! 14A. English IPA

Poured from a pint bottle. Very refreshing and light. Slightly caramel with floral hop aroma.

Good stuff. The IPA bitter labelling kind of confuses me. Is it an IPA, or a bitter? It certainly tastes more like a bitter. The nose is very fruity, with some alcohol. Taste is malty, with traces of fruit and alcohol. Hops are mild and finish off the beer nicely. Carbonation is low, which I always enjoy, and altogether it’s a great beer. The taste is a little thin, which the mildness doesn’t help, but seems to have some bady and depth. Very english.

got it on tap, a nice amber colour, a head that recedes a little too quickly. Quality out of the tap, but not from a can or bottle. Taste is a little weak/watery, but it does taste good

Caramel in colour, great dense head. Real fruity smell. Very light pub ale with fruity characteristics!

Nice malty aroma - dark copper colored appearance. Medium head - with a fair amount of lacing. Flavor is a great balance of hops and malts. Great session ale - could see having several of these - goes down well - just the right amount of bitterness.

Beeracolyte (51) - Katowice, POLAND - JAN 9, 2015
Puszka 0,5l kupiona w Intermarché. Po nalaniu doskonała, drobnopęcherzykowa, duża, biała piana. Piwo klarowne, barwy miedzianej, lekko bursztynowej. Kolor prawdopodobnie nadano poprzez użycie jakiegoś słodu melanoidynowego. Aromat znikomy, choć dość przyjemny. Lekko trawiasta nuta chmieli i karmelowość przypominająca ortodoksyjnego, angielskiego bittera. Piwo jest nisko nasycone. W smaku wyczuwalna żelazistość ale od chmielu. Smakowo jest to rzeczywiście klasyczne, brytyjskie IPA. Goryczka niska ale mamy wyraźny, gorzki finisz. Karmelowość przyjemnie dopełnia całość piwa. Wysoka pijalność dzięki niskiemu nasyceniu i niskiej, trawiastej goryczce. Piwo jest tanie więc naprawdę warto coś takiego wypić żeby dowiedzieć się smakuje większość piw dostępnych w angielskich pubach.
