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.

The Banker, City, Central London

Stephen HarrisAcceptable25 Apr 2012 This pint was a bit ‘green’ and over-chilled. The result seemed to be to separate out the component tastes of this beer. A big, biscuit malty taste followed by a bitter hop hit at the end. Should be more balanced.

The Barrowboy and Banker, Southwark, Central London

Stephen HarrisExcellent26 Mar 2012 Differs from most modern-day IPAs in using English (Goldings) hops, rather than the more aromatic US hops typically used. More muted flavours as a result.
Martin the MildmanGood09 Feb 2010 As a strong golden mild, very pleasant, but as it is supposed to be an IPA, a bit off the mark. Too sweet, little hop aroma or taste, served too cold and with a lot of carbonation. All this for £3.50/pint. My score 15/20 (for a pleasant sweet mild ale) or 13/20 for being an "IPA".

The Doric Arch, Euston, Central London

Stephen HarrisExcellent13 Feb 2012 Golden in colour with typical Fullers biscuit malt overlaid by decent but not intrusive hops. A rare ‘British’-type IPA as opposed to an American Pale Ale.
