2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
33cl bottle. Light watery yellow. Lemon in the aroma - toilet duck style lemon - some herbs, cardboard. Odd cardboard off notes in the taste, astringent citrus, some herbs. Not good, not good at all. Hopefully this is a bottle-specific thing - will revisit on keg when I can.
Earlier Rating: 3/3/2012 Total Score: 3.6
On tap at Bowes of Fleet Street, Dublin. Light and slightly hazy orange with decent white head. Grapefruit, orange, light zesty Citrus notes & slightly sweet malt are on the nose; taste is well balanced with a nice citrus zing, light pine and some light orange-y flavours; touch of caramel and biscuit to balance it out. Fairly refreshing pine/citric bitterness in the finish; a very decent APA, easy drinking - had a few dodgy bottles but it has been reliable on tap over recent months.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at Bierhaus. Pours a nice hazy golden colour with a medium white froth that lasts. Nose of citrus, freshly cut grass with a floral hint - very appetizing. Taste is a lightly balanced malty sweetness to begin with followed by a a big hoppy bitter kick. Nice lively carbonation yet maintains a smooth mouthfeel. A very good Irish attempt at an APA.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This brew is a slightly hazy amber color with a medium off-white head that recedes steadily. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, hops and malt. Light-bodied with a mildly bitter hops character and notes of grainy malt and fruit in the background. The finish is lightly hopped with a short fruity aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.
