Thin fizzy and flavourless. I can’t believe how bad this is. Like a malty version of mass produced lager.

Thornbridge Brewery by Chiron

Decent but doesn’t stand up in comparison to other APAs. A bit dull and biscuity. Not much hop profile.

Lots of hops in there but this was slightly funky. Like there was something wrong with it. Still drank it though. I’ll find out tomorrow...

Allendale Brewery Co Ltd by Wilderness IPA

Very solid IPA. Great hop bitterness, subtle biscuit malt, a little fruity. Well worth a punt in the supermarket.

Really like the bags of bitterness and slight fruitiness. But if a supermarket find. Could drink it all day. Mad open topped can too.

Haven’t had this in years. Always enjoyed bottles from supermarket. But tonight it’s watery and suffers in comparison to the other cask.

Nice spiciness about this but the choc and toffee sweetness doesn’t do it for me. Pretty thin for 6% too.

Slightly metallic head. Unremarkable APA.

Slightly sweet, resinous and definitely not “boldly hopped”. Fair enough but not one to try again.
