Jimthechap's rating

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 12/20
Jimthechap (2064) - Christchurch, - MAY 12, 2012
Good bitter amber colour with a carpet of white head and plenty of sparkle in the glass. Maris Otter malt dominates the aroma spectrum with some useful mandarin juice and tangelo aromas. Slightly tropical flower scents too, hibiscus perhaps? Plenty of prickly mouthfeel and then just the most succulent citrus sweets. On-going carbonation and and slight grassy bitterness, as if youve picked a piece of grass and sucked some of the juice from the end. This is a good ambassador beer, not just in the style but also for the brewery. It hasnt the body of a lot of British bitters, but it has character in spadefuls.

An okay English pale ale. Slightly astringent. Floral and mild. Nothing special. In London somewhere. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Desverger (9926) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 13, 2016
Bottle from Streatham Tescos (thanks dad) - golden amber pour with white head. Sweet and toasted bready malty action, some caramel notes, slight twiggy and herbal hoppy into the finish.

Good solid beer. Paler than expected pour, floral aroma and nice subtle floral bitterness. Bet the cask is better as carbonation here doesnt add anything and might be masking the subtle taste.

Scopey (13560) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 9, 2016
Can at BA lounge in T5. It pours clear amber with a small white head. The aroma is fresh floral, brown bread, toasted grain, orange peel and toffee. The taste is crisp, bitter, toasted grain, toffee, floral, citrus peel, straw, toasted grass and light spice with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate, lively carbonation. This tastes pretty fresh. Not so bad for a canned bitter.

Appearance Pours a crystal clear light copper, with no head
Aroma Bread, grains, caramel, moderate aroma of citrus fruits.
Taste Medium-heavy sweetness, low bitterness
Palate Medium body, low carbonation, long fruity aftertaste
Overall I like this; the mild flavour, low bitterness and low ABV makes this a decent session beer
