Botella de 550 ml comprada en Liquidos Almacén de bebidas (Zaragoza). Bonito color cobrizo, espuma persistente. Aromas cítricos y a maltas tostadas. Sabor a caramelo, malta, amargor medio. Una buena cerveza muy británica.

Bottle pours a dark golden color with a nice white head. Aromas of malt, caramel, light citrus, yeast. Medium bodied, a nice classic beer.

PanMarek (465) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 10, 2017
Dark golden pour with dense, creamy, persistent beige foam. Malty nose with a little caramel and some yeast. Taste is rich with bready, light caramel malt and a touch of grassy hops. Medium body and light carbonation. Surprising, clean finish. Very much the sort of thing one associates with one’s local pub.

odannyob (158) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - FEB 10, 2017
Aroma: Malty, wet stones. Appearance: A thick light golden light brown with a whipped creamy head. Taste: Goodness and gracious. Palate: Active to the final swallow. Overall: Strong and appetizing. Poured from a gift pack of 3 ales to include a Sam Smith pint glass. Get it while ye can and enjoy.

thejackpacker (850) - East Sussex, ENGLAND - FEB 9, 2017
Draught at Ye Olde Chesire Cheese. Absolutely reeked, very off putting skunk, pub floor smell. May be fault of the pub. It tastes okay but not of a great deal.

coachd (1070) - Missouri, USA - JAN 13, 2017
Malty skunky aroma with a hint of hops at the end. Burnt orange color with a large tuft of bright white foam. Tastes very malty, hardly any hops at all, kind of bland. Nondescript palate, manages to be slightly watery and low carbonation at the same time. I wasn’t a fan of this and I would not drink this again.

AndreasP (362) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 12, 2017
Malty and sweet in aroma. Toffee and bread n the taste and a clean bitterness without any hop aroma

la verdad es que la India Ale es una cerveza deliciosa. Como es habitual en las islas, estamos ante una IPA interpretada de forma totalmente diferente a las continentales y sobre todo diferente a las americanas. Aquí el amargor propio del estilo y los cítricos están presentes, pero mucho más apaciguados. Huele a fruta madura (melocotón y albaricoque) y a madera. En boca presenta cuerpo medio y resulta riquísima. Se aprecia claramente los malteados dulces como caramelo, los cítricos muy suaves del lúpulo y un amargor irresistible, bien balanceado y agradable. Presentada en un contundente envase de 550 ml. que aconsejo no enfriar demasiado. De 11 a 13º es su temperatura ideal.
