tombyars (1790) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - FEB 27, 2012
First tasted this at Glasgow Airport in February 1996. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear pale amber in colour with a thin white head. Dusty floral hops in the short fragrant aroma. Thin resiny mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malts give a digestive biscuit base with a slight note of marmalade. Strong hop resins give a dry floral bitter aftertaste. Finish is weak and edged on the bitter side with slight astringency. A poor session bitter. DJMonarch (9179) - Northwich, Cheshire, ENGLAND - FEB 26, 2006
Cask Handpump at the GBBF, Kensington Olympia 06/08/2003
Golden amber coloured and pale. Sour fruit flavour and a bitter finish. Ungstrup (38940) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 6, 2006
[Cask at GBBF 2005] A hazy orange-brown beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet malty combined with light notes of hops. The flavor is roasted malty combined with light notes of caramel, leading to a dry end. But the body is thin. Mads Langtved (2240) - Copenhagen K, DENMARK - NOV 25, 2005
Cask conditioned, GBBF 2005:
Golden appearance, no head. In my opinion this is thin and watery. The beer seemed a bit too dusty for me. Liberty (52) - Stompwijk, NETHERLANDS - JUL 15, 2005
Cask conditioned at the compasses, May 2005, littley green. A shame that the brewery will close in the autumn, which will also makes an and to the unique tradition of the compasses as brewery tap. At this moment the beers do not have to travel far and are really fresh. The quality tends to be very good, as the pub more or less functions as the brewery tap.
But now the beer. Very light, very easy drinking IPA. Nice hoppy flavor. Very very nice on a warm day!

Beautiful amber color. Some malt aroma, and hops. A lot of caramel taste, quite poor hopping for an IPA, too watery mouthfeel.
The DM & Hotstuff’s European Honeymoon trip beer number 4. This draft brew on nitrogen from the Market Porter in London poured a small head of light brown colored fine to medium sized mostly lasting bubbles that left behind a fair lacing and a uncarbonated transparent brown colored body. The aroma was like dirty socks and the mouth feel was smooth with a mild hoppy palate. It had a mild hop flavor that was missing the typical hoppiness that an American would come to expect from their IPA’s. TheBeerGod (6284) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - SEP 27, 2004
Cask at The Lord Moon of the Mall and Market Porter in London. Shared with chris_o the first time and then chris_o, duff, Spiesy, SilkTork, TheDM, and HotStuff the second time. Notes are from the first time. Bronze body. Mild hops mixed with light caramel and a pleasant malt aroma.Taste is floral hops, caramel and faint spice. Mouthfeel is moderate to full and creamy. Light carbonation feel. Some nice bittering hops during the finish along with faint caramel. duff (5486) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 19, 2004
Market Porter, Southwark, London. Not an IPA, just a typical English bitter. Touch of fruity, zingy, hops, light citrus, medium bitter, and not much else, failry standard stuff.
