3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Flight done at Brewers Corner in Kilkenny. Samples healthy portion, 8 oz. Tasty notes as follows:
Irish Stout: coffee, dry, tasty
Irish Pale Ale: good pun on name, good flavor, nice hop balance
Irish Red: strong alcohol flavor, finish is taste of pool water, hard to finish, biased against style in general, had in nitro as well which was more enjoyable
Helles Lager: crisp, mild hop finish
Natural Blonde: drinkable, koslh-esque?
Leann Follain: Barrel aged flavor, enjoyable like most irish dry stouts
Double IPA: Boozy, strong hop flavor, not up there with the good ones
Widow Retro Pale Ale: conservative, middle of the road, not offensive but not great
Amber Adventure: tastes similar to pale ale, hops present and noticeable, bitter, caramel malt
Winter Star: spicy, winer holiday flavor

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark gold with a very fruity floral nose. The beer starts malty-floral with very fresh hoppy aroma. The mainpart is full & fresh, a bit earthy and dry. Till
the end comes a nicely bitter hopped note, that fits in the floral
and earthy flavour-profile. --> Nice and floral
earthy IPA!! 12/12/12/12

Złote, przejrzyste, praktycznie bez piany.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A very nice and easy drinker that is still a little different from most pale ales witch makes it a nice change. Aroma is dry,hoppy and sweet but malts are in the show case. A medium to lite body beer with a nice sharp finsh that is dry and a little bitter.
