500ml dark bottle from Morrisons. Attractive retro label for the current fashion of reviving old recipes - particularly IPA recipes. This is a spanking good beer. The malt is cleaner than one would expect from a retro recipe - but I think Sheps are using their marketing wisdom to simply put a spin on a modern beer. I have no doubt they consulted an old recipe, but they used modern ingredients, modern technology, and modern thinking to adjust the recipe. The malt is clean and toffee flavoured, the hops are brisk and tidy, and the yeast is non-existent. There’s no character here. There’s generous hops and malt, combined in a straight forward traditional manner that has been popular now for over ten years. So this both old fashioned and very modern. And tastes more modern than old fashioned. There’s not much of interest, and there’s certainly no character. But it’s a good, drinkable beer. And there’s nowt wrong with that.
Keg from Bishops Arms Östersund. Put as bottle as it is certainly not a cask. Something so warming about this beer, a perfect post autumn walk beer. Hug in the glass. Dark, slightly hoppy, smooth. OminouSC2 (722) - Mora, SWEDEN - AUG 9, 2017
Copper colored, small white head. Sweet aromas of caramel, malt, dried fruits, syrup and candy sugar. Sweet taste with caramel, candy sugar, malt, bread, dried fruits and bitter honey. Ok beer but nowhere near an IPA (as the label says). gripweed57 (2570) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - JUL 18, 2017
From old tasting notes. Amber orange color. Thick rocky beige head. Malty nose. Dryish toasted malt flavor. Hints of caramel and spice. A good brew, just a little light on the hops for an IPA. miggle (347) - Fürth, GERMANY - JUL 13, 2017
Red brown color, basically no head. Aroma of Black currant and Wood. Taste has a sweet start with light bitter ending.
