3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Beautiful red pour with a rich, luscious creamy beige head. Fruity nose. Bready, malty flavor. Water mouthfeel. Refreshing as hell but drinks somewhat like an American macro light beer. Bottle @ The English market, Cork, Ireland.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dec. í15. A 0.33 l bottle from a local Tommy supermarket. This one poured a clear brownish-red body with a tiny head atop. Caramel aroma, coarser. Flavor was lightly bitter, roasted caramel, only a bit fruity. Light herbal hops spiced it up. Thin bodied, but absolutely normal for the style. Finished lightly sweet with pleasant, elegant toasted malt notes, especially the smooth biscuit. Okay, a pleasant Irish ale. Itís been a while since my last one.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
BOTTLE 33 CL. Clear dark amber, small off-white head. Both the aroma and the taste a malt-driven, caramelized sugar, plum jam, dark honey. A hint of toasted bread and a touch of spicy hops in the finish. The somewhat abrasive carbonation is the only downside. Not bad.

Pours a clear darker shade of amber, light coppery color, topped with a medium sized and not really lasting beige head. Mild malty aroma with caramel and some sicuity notes. Some chalk but not too intrusive. Taste is mildly sweet, malty with some pleasant caramel presence. Gentle and very light. Nice one.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear dark amber color with beige head. Aroma has mostly caramel malts and some earthy hops. Taste starts malty but not sweet, a bit astringent and hoppy on the finish. Medium to light body with low carbonation, feels a bit watery. Not bad overall, itís easy drinking and has a nice aroma but it tastes quite bland.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle, 330 ml from Pivana. Pours dark amber short lasting off white head. Lacks body, caramel malty, sweetish, bit artificial. Main problem for me is emptiness which sucks you in after first taste.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a clear dark ruby color with short lasting slightly off-white head. Smell is faint, bread, yeast and caramel. Gets more intense as it warms up a bit.
Thin body with medium carbonation. Watery texture. Taste is bittersweet. Aroma of malts, yeast, bread, caramel, toffee. Dry finish.
Overall, a bit too thin and watery. Aroma doesnít come through strong enough. Could be better.
