3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle in Spainsbury’s beer-off. Shining gold without inclusions under a skim of white froth. Aroma initially canned corn and phosphorous warming into more promising English woodland and mandarin. Taste: good tangy satsuma hop rounded with lingering malt suggesting cashew. More of that slightly dank English woodland taste I can’t quite capture: Coombe Abbey? Creamy mouthfeel, dabs of heat, peach, well-poised bittersweetness, almond. Slightly saline. Not bad.
UPDATED: AUG 17, 2017 Copper gold colour, grass and low floral flavours.
Medium bitterness and high carbonation. LazyPyro (1587) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 29, 2017
500ml bottle. Pours clear golden with a thin white head. Aroma: sweet, slightly grainy malts, fruity citrus, floral hops. Taste: same as the aroma, sweet malty base, grainy, bready, fruity citrus and floral hops, bitter finish. Light-medium body, fine carbonation. Not too bad but not really what I expected from an IPA. mR_fr0g (13492) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 15, 2017

500ml bottle. Pours clear golden amber, no head. Nose is bready, toffee, nutty, grapefruit and orange rind. Medium mouth feel. Bready biscuit caramel malt leading into a piney grapefruit orange rind bitter finish. Quite an oily texture too. Not a session beer, but nice enough to buy again. spacecube (1763) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 28, 2017

Bottle. Golden ale with a thick white top. Nose is lemon and grapefruits. Some alka seltzer. Taste is very zingy. There’s a pleasant lemon/grapefruit bite to this, and a nice malt in the belch. Too zingy to quaff, so this is a bit of a sipper. s_hartshorne (2814) - wakefield, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 25, 2017

Bottle at home. Light and fresh tasting. Semi-sweet. Mild hoppy finish. Not much memorable. uckelman (813) - Durham, ENGLAND - NOV 15, 2016
Pours clear, golden. Ring of white head. Not much aroma, just a bit of grass and grains. Reminds me more of a German pilsner than an IPA, really. It’s a little bitter, finish is a little dry. It’s a not all that aromatic.
