2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Looks and smells like most of the ales. Taste is not as bitter I would like it to be. There is a little more hops than in a typical super market lager, but othervise this goes to that gategory. Mostly boring, which is better than bad.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from global retailer.
Appearance - bright copper with a nice fluffy head.
Nose - dirty yeast and sulphur note. Light toffee breaking through.
Taste - toffee and biscuits.
Palate - light to medium bodied with a crunchy texture and a dry astringent finish.
Overall - can’t say this is a great example of the style. More like a badly executed bitter.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
500ml Bottle from Sainsbury’s, New Mills, Derbyshire.
An IPA is the old fashioned, moderately-hopped sense and all the weaker for it. Bland, watery and with a strange metallic finish. There’s a reason Marstons don’t have their name prominently on it.
