From Hipercor. In Ikea's pint glass. After dinner. Caramel with spicy notes and a strongly grassy hoppy finish. Nice effervescence, zesty and refreshing. Drinks very well, totally sessionable

Nice dark amber appearance with decent head and lacing.

Smells of floral, earthy hops and sweet malt.

Taste is of sweet malt, toffee and floral English hops. A more hop forward English Pale Ale taste. Nice lingering bitterness on the finish. A bit of English Ale yeastflvour is also present.

Overall a well balanced an tastier than average EPA with a nod to American Pale Ales. Easy to drink yet flavourful and also refreshing. May not blow many people's socks off but its a very above average beer in this category.

500 ml bottle poured into a pint glass. Pours a red amber with a quickly dissipating head. Nose is fruity and hoppy. Taste is smooth with a hoppy finish. Great beer and refreshing.
