Brewed by Marston, this IPA shares many characteristics with their other beers, as likely as not due to their famous spring water. Perhaps a little too lightly hopped for this style, it is still a very pleasant beer, with a good flowery bouquet, a little sweetness in the aftertaste, and a good full body. The label aims for a mix of traditional simplicity and class, but I find it boring. cgarvieuk (24236) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 21, 2013

Bottle from Sainsburys of course. Poured a crystal clear medium amber with a thin white head. The aroma is weak malty. No hops here. The flavour is medium bitter with a hoppy, malty spicy palate. dEnk (4200) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - SEP 16, 2013
Aroma is quite faint, some yeast, herbal hops and a touch of malt. Flavour is light bitterness, some fruity hops, nothing special, but I could drink this al night. spacecube (1705) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 2, 2013
500ml bottle, pours a copper brown with small white head, fairly mild aroma with caramel and biscuit malts leading into a bitter finish with fruity and grassy hop flavours starting to come through. Pleasant enough.

Bottle from the Cromwell Road Sainsbury’s. Pours light amber with a slight white head. Aroma is floral over light caramel. Med body. Flavor is light caramel with some bitter hop that seems citrus with a little floral tagging along. It is classically bitter. My tongue says that to me. In the bitter finish the malt becomes a slight roast. IPA? Pretty tasty whatever. (just noticed this is an ESB - that fits much better than IPA) Koelschtrinker (20243) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAR 23, 2013
Mild hopfiger Antrunk mit dunklen Malznoten. Leicht hopfig-würziger Ausklang, wenig grasig. OK. 10/10/11/10/8/10 gwoodin (44) - Birmingham, ENGLAND - FEB 16, 2013

Dark golden colour. Aroma is lightly floral and a bit fruity. Flavour has initial malty taste. Some hop fruitiness, a bit peachy. Overall there’s a metal taste ruins the beer’s finish.
