Hints of pine and orange in the aroma. Lively carbonation accentuates the hops which are followed up nicely by the malt compexity.

Pint on draught - Fitzpatrick’s in Doolin Co.Clare. Poured golden/amber wth white head. You get the expected hoppy aromas of citrus, and grapefruit. Taste is crisp with long hoppy bitterness following through. Quite highly carbonated. I liked it.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Fra fad. Tåget gylden, lavt hvidt skum. Frisk, sexy og humlet næse. US-humler. Citrus, fedtede fyrnåle og en lille smule sarmsved. Mild karamel i malten, men der er humlen, der styrer. Slutter med dejlige tørre harpiks-noter. Farlig høj drinkabillity.

My first micro brew from Ireland. These are hard to come by here. It was a crisp with grapefruit, orange, orange peel with subtle floral notes. Medium body and exactly what I was looking for. It drank very well!

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
33cl bottle from Auchan (Luxembourg). Pours an almost clear golden colour with a thin off-white head. Aroma is malty, fruity, caramel and lightly spicy. Average to soft carbonation and light to medium body. Taste is really bitter at start with some sweet notes and a long bitter and dry finish. Overall, a nice beer but with not much of a taste and a bit unbalanced. I was expecting more.
