From carrefour. In Ikea's pint glass. After dinner. Really smoothness feel and nice long-lasting. foam. However, I find it pretty odorless and tasteless. I cant say that ive enjoyed it more than a typical industrial lager. Has nothing of an IPA

Pulled (cask) into a pint glass at The Plough in Bloomsbury, London.

Appearance - Reddish copper color. Amazing clarity! Thin white head made up of very fine bubbles. Minimal/moderate lacing. A good looking ale.

Smell - Mild malt nose. A touch toasty. A faint whiff of citrus.

Taste - Mild malt flavor (no surprise there). A bit toasty. Slightly bitter on the finish.

Mouth - Smooth. The carbonation is barely perceptible. A little thin.

Overall - This is a mild bitter that is perfectly balanced and very sessionable. Having said that, I like my ales with a little more character. Nice but a little lacking. It sure was pretty to look at, though!

Lacking everything but the ability to fill the bladder. Would possibly drink again if dehydrated. Forgettable.
