Mild aroma of berry hops and malt.

(Keg at Black Door, 20130725) The beer poured golden and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had grass, fruitiness and grain. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, grass, sweetness, malta and bitterness. Afteraste was sweet and harshly bitter. An decent but too unbalanced brew.

UPDATED: JUL 4, 2013 Keg at Black Sheep Dublin thanks to garthicus - cheers Alan! Heavy straw aroma, some herbs and booze. Taste gives heavy straw, herbs, light lemon peel, cereal. Light going, not too much going on at all. Imperial pils - interesting, but not interesting enough! /// rerate: this is actually pretty piss poor, sweet corny notes dominate, booze, herbs, cardboard - downgrading this chap. Must have been in a hell of a good mood during the first rate!

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance: vibrant hazy golden yellow. Tiny white head. Aroma: grassy, caramel, a little banana and lemon zest, a bit of wet cardboard. Flavour: caramel, some mildly bitter hops, a twist of lemon, perhaps a bit too much grass, again some wet cardboard but with a bitter wheat like finish. Hmm.
