Can at home. A very pale, pale ale, if you are allowed to say such a thing. A light colour and a typical flavour of bitter hops and some balancing malt. It was all very pleasant and pale aley and that is about all I can say. Look, it’s a pale ale and there isn't really much you can do with these things apart from drink them and wonder why you paid so much for it!

Second beer on a big birthday, Ma and Pa's patio, 30/07/17. Copper with a slim off-white head. Aroma of peach, pine and fruit jellies. Decent mellow gummy blackcurrant and peach. Solid bitter tonic finish with hints of roasted nuts. Doesn't set the world on fire but does what it does well.

Can from Beerdock Leek. Pours a clear golden colour with medium white head. Aroma of grain, slight butter, a little grape and subtle chalky hops. Taste of grain, some lemon, orange and slight herbal hops. Light bodied and moderate carbonation. A dry and crisp, herbal hop bitterness in the finish. More lager than pale ale in my opinion but some hoppiness late on. Not bad.

Cask @ Cafe Beermoth, Manchester. Amber in colour, with a strength that isn't a factor in its taste, however it's not an overly flavoursome hoppy ale.

Online can. Very pale yellow with a slight haze. High carbonation and a thin bubbly head. A nice, hoppy aroma with pine and citrus. Bitter, crisp and grapefruity. Overall a nice effort at low alcohol IPA, very sessionable!

Third of a pint in my local Wetherspoon pub on 19th Oct 2017. Amber bronze body, decent white head. The nose has Rye esters to the fore with a spicy toffee apple below. Taste was also Rye first with a toffee flavour under the surface, again with a hint of spiciness. Not a huge Rye fan, but this wasn't in your face like some I've stumbled across.

Cask at the Hope Tap (JDW), Reading. Copper coloured with a loose white head and moderate fizz. Metallic and watery on the first taste. Some spice, grapefruit and caramel develop, but I'm still not liking this one much. Mildly bitter. Worst at the fest so far.

Pours a really dark golden colour, minimal head, medium carbonation. Big aromas of Pineapple juice, grapefruit and mandarin orange. The pineapple taste is really subtle which is a letdown, it is sort of like a pineapple syrup on first taste, the grapefruit and grassy hops dominate leading to a bitter finish. At 6.4% it is quite strong after a few of these you'll be singing Buffalo Soldier all night.

Tasted this at the Troon BF on the 6th October 2017. Cask, gravity dispense. Clear pale amber in colour with a thin white head. Strong Del Monte tropical fruit notes long in the hoppy nose. Thick resiny mouthfeel and poor lacing. Pale malt gives a very light digestive biscuit base with sweet intense tropical fruit flavours of mango, apricot, papaya and blood orange present in the mouth. Slight grapefruit note to the soft citrus flavour in the bitter aftertaste. Finish is bitter with juicy tropical fruit notes still evident on the palate with mango and apricot dominant. A nice IPA with more intense juicy fruit notes when compared to the much stronger Imperial IPA from Outstanding?

Cask at The Green Dragon, Leek (JDW) A clear amber colour with a medium white off head. Aroma of red fruits, some toffee, a little rye and slight spicy hops. Taste of sweet red fruits, some toffee, caramel, a little rye and subtle spicy hops. Light bodied and soft carbonation. A soft, dryish, spicy malt bitterness in the finish. A solid rye beer with the spiciness of it working well with the sweet red fruits and toffee. Isn’t full bodied enough but enjoyed this.

August 2017 - Cask, handpull, at GBBF 2017, Kensington Olympia. As 'Roosters Twenty Four Seven'. Golden yellow, clear and still, bubbly off-white head. Aroma is liquorice, floral. Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste is smooth sugary malt, nips of citrus and some more floral notes. Pretty balanced and drinkable but nothing stand-out. (5-4-6-4-13=3.2)

Can. Apologies to my London CDA Bro's, thought this was a coffee IPA. Almost clear dark brown beer, good pale tan head. Smooth palate, mildly dry and with modest fine carbonation. Roasty bitter dark malts, some coffee bitterness in there. Bitter esters and dark fruits. Finishes smooth and semi dry with some spicy bitterness. Only thing hops bring here is bitterness of which there was plenty already. Quite bitter then!

Pours pale yellow with medium to high carbonation and a fluffy white head. Aroma is biscuit, pine, apple and citrus. Taste is quite sweet with a light bitter and watery finish. Refreshing, light and pretty dull. Somewhere in here a decent beer is trying to fet out if only they upped the ABV and hops...
