Old Empire is brewed using Optic malt, a subtle and paler grain that will allow other flavours to come through on the palate. Goldings and Fuggles hops are added to this brew, which is then late hopped with the American Cascade variety for extra hop strength.

A: Clear gold with a big white head N: Malty with a hint of bitterness T: Sweet malt upfront, with leafy green bitterness showing through on the back end P: Full O: At first it tastes like a blonde ale, but then the bitterness hits you to remind you that this is an IPA.

Small nose but good looking beer. Malty taste with some hoppy bitterness but still nothing outrageous. Palate short as expected. Not bad beer but I doubt it would have made it all the way to India.

Short lived foam and a slight herby scent. Slightly sweet with a long metallic bitter finish. Not particularly fruity, malty or hoppy. Quite a robust biscuity caramel flavour with some depth. Very drinkable though!

Svijetlo bakarna boja, bijela pjena, veoma brzo nestane. Arome i nisu toliko izražene, osjeti se kvasac, pomalo vanilije, samo malo alkohol i dim. Srednje gorčine i karbonizacije. Poprilično tanko, ne baš zanimljiva ipa.

50cl bottle from CityAlko, Arsenal Keskus. Pours clear amber with a decent, but short-lived off-white head. Mild fruity and grainy aroma with notes of honey and hints of citrus and caramel, Moderate to medium sweet with mild, but balanced flavours and a fine bitterness. Easy to drink and quite enjoyable.

Calisky (3059) - ALSACE, FRANCE - SEP 29, 2017
Couleur legerement ambrée, petite mousse. Nez houblonné un peu fruité raisin. Gout houblonné fruité, gras, note d'herbes et zeste d'agrumes. Bon corps. Malgrés tout assez classique. Fin amere un peu raisin

TheCeeMan (26) - Ilkeston, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - SEP 25, 2017
UPDATED: SEP 25, 2017 Post Tenerife/Poland bottle at home. Pours golden Amber with white head nicely clear. Head clears quick but small slick remains. Biscuity malty sweet aroma. Strange that the sweetness hits you after the bitterness with incredible biscuity caramel depth. A very drinkable beer but nothing special.

India Pale Ale? Are they sure? This beer doesn't taste like an IPA, there isn't a hoppy taste :(

kaserov (990) - Oviedo, SPAIN - SEP 18, 2017
Color dorado, translúcido, con capa de espuma blanca de tres dedos de grosor (retención decente). Carbonatación media. Textura acuosa y ligeramente chispeante. Aroma a lúpulo floral, toques herbales. En boca lúpulo floral, grano y toques herbales. Amargor final suave. Más Bitter que IPA.
