2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Fionn Maccools. Pours copper in colour with a slightly off white head. Tastes like its made with malt and hops, decent hop profile. Probably still brewed with corn. Worth a tick.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pint at D’Arcy McGee’s. Clear deep amber with a thin white head. Relatively decent pine and resin, reasonable toast crust, peppery, smells like a rye beer, a wee touch of tang, not bad at all. Medium body, moderate effervescence. A bit thin, decent peppery, resinous hops, a bit lacking in malt support, a bit of rye crust, minerals, decent; dry with fair bitterness and a reasonable if stern light brown sugar finish with some resin and pine.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Saw this one in the local paper, advertising a 50 IBU instead of their regular IPA at 17 IBU. Pours a clean amber colour with a small off-white cap, and a bit of lacing. Light fruity malt nose with very mild hop. Decent mouthfeel with some stickiness and some dryness. Fruity malt taste with mild hop again, light roasted malt and bitterness in the finish. Grain eventually comes out. One of the better Keith’s products, getting closer to a real IPA (but still lacking some attack). At least, no corn was felt in this one like most of their beers.
