Tasting Summary

These comments are the opinion of the individual reviewer and represent what they thought of the beer on a particular day in a particular pub. If a review is less favourable, it may be because the beer suffered somewhere in the supply chain between them and the brewery.

IanGood27 May 2007 Really very drinkable. I think this may have been toned down to an extent as well as the Skrimshander. Having said that, I could still taste the hops on the walk home.

IanExcellent05 Dec 2006 I think that this was the best pint of Incubus that I have had in this pub. Crystal clear amber/orange colour with lasting beige head. Malt fruits and hop were integrated and the conditioning was just right, giving a full mouth feel and good carbonation.
IanGood16 Nov 2006 Good rich fruity malt and aggressive hop finish. Sometimes though, it can feel a bit separated like the malt and hop aren't in total harmony.
IanGood11 Nov 2006 Drinkable enough. Nice rich fruity malt and balancing hop on end.

IanGood01 May 2006 Had a couple of pints as a pre-lunch aperatif. I found a quiet corner by the window and read. Quite pleasant really. The beer had some of its good malty nature and sweetness and the hops were good enough to be interesting.
IanGood23 Apr 2006 Better than Friday night. Had some of that good intense rich red berry fruit and sharp hop. Still not perfect though. Perhaps I drink too much of this and I am becoming picky about it.
IanAcceptable21 Apr 2006 Seemed a bit watery to me.
IanGood28 Mar 2006 Last pint out of the barrel. But lovely. Good rich malt fruit with good hop on end. Would have liked to have had another.
IanNot Tried26 Mar 2006
IanGood12 Mar 2006 Not quite at its best, but still a good supping pint with enough hop and fruity malt to make you want to have another
IanExcellent07 Mar 2006 I'm always a bit weary of this in a Wetherspoon's as I know how good it can be. This was excellent. Just the right mix of rich malt and tangy herby hop. Really very good and I could have had more.
IanNot Tried31 Jan 2006
IanAcceptable08 Jan 2006 Looks as though Hopdaemon are supplying the Wetherspoons pubs in the area with Incubus on a regular basis, seen it in Folkestone, Ashford and Maidstone. This had some choc malt, some nice rich fruit flavour and some toffee. Hoppy finish. Thin and tinny compared to what it can be though

AndrewExceptional09 Jan 2009 It was just froth in a pint glass as she poured it but to her credit we eventually got full pints without asking for them to be topped up. Given it's lively nature I wondered if it would be up to much but it was brilliant. The flavours were so well integrated that it was like drinking a velvet pulse (make of that what you like but I know what I mean). Fresh strawberry and melon were present with fruity malt. Brilliant.
