COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The inventors of Indian Pale Ale may have originally added extra hops to help it survive the long voyage to India. But we just do it for the taste! Every drop as thirst-quenching as the last, Vedett IPA offers an explosion of flavoursome bitterness that increases with intensity towards the finish, tempered by an unparalleled velvety smoothness resulting in a very accessible taste. Fresh, fruity and floral notes give way to touches of caramel sweetness, while its superb, lingering aftertaste continues to tantalise the tastebuds long after. Here’s to a great-tasting, refreshing beer!

Nice IPA but nothing more. Nose is very promising, but beer doesn’t really deliver. Short finish, and poor foam make this an IPA that does not really stand up against similar IPA´s.

Ambrée dorée, pas mal équilibrée mais vraiment quelconque. La remarque est facile mais, sans être mauvaise, elle porte plutôt bien son nom ^^. 50cl à la pression au bar Hall's beer tavern, Paris, France, bue le 31/08/2017.

330ml stubby brown bottle from Tesco. Pale beer with some hops. Pleasant yeasty character lifts this. There is a softly attractive fragrance which owes a lot to the yeast and brewing along with some hop character. Quite soft, almost watery. Pleasant, natural carbonation (unfiltered?). It's an OK beer. Those who expect their IPA to be American craft beer malt neutral and strongly hopped may be disappointed. I kinda liked it, though can't see myself reaching for another one.

Une IPA aux, arômes d'agrumes bien équilibrée, à l'amertume pas trop prononcée. Très agréable.

Steffan (105) - WALES - SEP 8, 2017
Fruity citrus smell, fizzy small head cloudy orange colour, taste is solid bitterness but balanced with a watery malty finish. Not as refreshing or thirst quenching as a good lager being an ale. However, such a pleasant tingling bitterness and high drinkability make it better than most IPAs. Good stuff.

Bottle 330 ml. Aroma appears to be flowery. Taste is good, and different (less bitterness) than the taste of an IPA. Quite nice on a hot summer day on a terrace.
