Bottled 29/09/12. A copper coloured beer with an off-white pook. A sweet and yeasty nose. Some Wadworth cookie dough notes. Sweet, thin and caramelly in the mouth. More cookie dough. Quite dull.
500ml bottle from Morrisons, £1.00:Garrold (5276) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2017
Not the strongest or the most interesting of beers, this one started relatively weak with little more than some biscuit malts & an earthy bitterness to show for itself. There was some faint sweetness at times that was a mild surprise but for the most part the beer seemed bland & watered down, never really making itself known & as a result it’s one that I’ll be avoiding in future sadly.
Bottle. Morrisons. As Wadworth IPA. Clear, amber colour. Film and suds of white. Nose has butterscotch. Baking bread. Old hops. Taste is light sweet. Light body. Manages to feel a bit greasy, though. Light sweet finish. Just about ok for the quid spent on it. Hanoi (951) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - FEB 1, 2017
Bottle. Nose is butterscotch, caramel, slight floral. Taste is butterscotch, caramel, light floral hop. Not an IPA on any level and mostly very poor. redders1974 (1473) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - JAN 15, 2017
Amber small frothy head. Weak body not much body inoffensive and easy drinking but every so bland. Towey1989 (2829) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 27, 2016
Bottle. Now branded Wadworth IPA. Pours a clear amber colour with a foamy white head. Aroma of toasted malts, bready malts, some caramel, orange, slight almond, a little fruit and subtle plastic. Taste of bready malts, some caramel, slight orange, a little fruit and subtle grain. Light bodied, moderate carbonation and a watery texture. A dry, carbonated water, malty bitterness in the finish. Started off promising with a nice, malty array of aromas but the taste is bland, unappealing and watery. A below average bitter and definitely not an IPA.

Bright clear amber beer, small pale cream colour head. Light malts, slightly grainy. Mildly bitter floralness. Tangy thin dried fruits. Just a touch of zippy citrus. Light dry finish with a slightly grainy linger. Okay.
4x500ml cans for £2.60 from home bargains. Doesn’t look like much- copper colour with hardly any head. But the taste is good - not that strong but a good balance between malt and hops.
