Served cool from 330ml bottle into pilsner glass.

L) Dark amber / light brown colour. Clear, streams of small bubbles. Head has a yellowish tinge.

S) Toffee sweetness is the first thing to note. Fruity hops in there.

T) Slight acidic tinge, the hop taste is there but weak. Mild malty flavour.

F) A nice fizz, which is maybe wrong for the style. Dries the throat out a bit. No rough aftertastes.

O) A real let down on the flavour front, I can't recommend this one when you can get better Pale Ales in anyh supermarket now.

Pint at the Market Porter.

A: Bronze, clear, lively looking, medium well retained head, clear.

S: Noble hop, Hallertau? More Pilsner than Pale Ale.

T: Sour dough, lots of rye bread gave way to fruity bitterness.

M: Lots of carbonation, had a real snap to it.

O: Seemed stronger than it was, I would probably revisit. More of a European than American take on a pale ale.

On tap in London. White head. Golden orange color.

Very macro like. Grassy hop profile. Bready and biscuity.

I had a hard time with this one. It kind of reminded me of a steam ale.

Was works Christmas party
they actually had 'Craft' hardly the best tho, Meantime Pale
tho to me, it seemed like their IPA watered down
vast improvement however on last year, Black Sheep Ale
& the year before FuthaMucking Peroni (funnily enough in the same place as this year)
I would say competent
nicer aroma than flavour
