Single bottle from Manchester W&L. Pours out a hazy light orange color. Little to no head. Sweet honey spice aromas and flavors. Lingering nutty sweet finish. Not very good at all.
This is the same POS IPA as 203, but it was darker. So I’m copying the same review since that’s what they did with the beer.
It was a shitty cracker malt lager flavor with some light hops that didn’t compensate for the skunky sweetness. It was a bad beer. novice101 (323) - - FEB 15, 2014
Pours light orange, with a large head. Smells of malts, not a lot of hops, taste of caramel almost no hops, probably an old bottle Cletus (6368) - Connecticut, USA - JAN 14, 2014
Pours hazy amber with a white head. Smells of resin, peppery, light floral notes. Tastes peppery, resiny, earthy. Middle of the road. Exactly the same as the 203. nimbleprop (8750) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 5, 2013

thinnest gold, large white bubbled head. Mineral nose, light solvent and cleaning product. Doughy bread flavor, ultra thin. No carbonation, odd cardboard bitterness through the end. Meh. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 30, 2013

Bottle. Poured a light golden color with a small, mostly clear head, not a lot of head here. Heavy earthy notes, some light earthy hops. Flavor is so-so, earthy, that’s about it. Not a fan. BeerandBlues2 (13806) - Escondido, California, USA - SEP 28, 2013
