the_kontra (5) - POLAND - MAY 29, 2017 does not count
Date: 29.05.2017 Bottle, valid until 30.04.2018 Mediocre. Weak grassy aroma. Taste wasn’t bad, but not good enough to actually enjoy it.

Quizas algo insipida para ser una IPA. Color ambar oscuro, intenso. Corona blanca con fuerza. Una presencia muy bonita tanto la etiqueta como la botella.

A strong British IPA. Nice bitter flavours and very nice mouthfeel. This is one that I will need to seek out again.

500 ml bottle in Wiveliscombe England. Pours a clear medium tan with small white head that lasts. Aroma is subdued and slightly soapy. Some pine and citrus on the nose. Moderate carbonation gives lively mouthfeel. Punchy hop bitterness, mostly on the fore palate. Solid malt backbone but does not quite balance the hops which dominate. Solid abv helps to give this IPA a lift. Medium body with a slightly soapy texture. Not all that bad for a mega brewer.

CAS- "#Scotland has whisky. #Detroit has cars. #Burton has #beer. And we´re the oldes breare in Town" (#Escocia tiene whisky. Detroit tiene coches. Burton tiene #cerveza. Y nosotros somos la cervecera más antigua de la ciudad). Marketing aparte, esta cerveza posee una espuma de duración bastante efímera y un aroma muy suave a malta (quizás demasiado). Me pareció muy carbonatada, más de lo que me esperaba y su sabor tostado no me aportó ningún matiz que no haya visto en otras cervezas y con mejores resultados. Me pareció bastante normal.

See ei ole mingi IPA! Peale sauna kõlbab libistada küll, aga selleks on ka odavamaid ja paremaid õllesid.

zacgillbanks (5123) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - APR 7, 2017
Bottle from Aldi, Washington. Bright golden coloured with a thick head of white foam. It has a citrus, pine, toffee and peppery hop flavour followed by an earthy bitter-sweet finish. Good.

Gary (1999) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 1, 2017
500ml bottle. It’s decent bottled low boost English bitter. Nice American hop kiss is a peck on the cheek in subtlety . This beer would probably be vibrant from a cask conditioned sample. Peanut and cracker nose is cool and interesting. Yeah, not a bad brew.
