2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Simple appearance. The beer has a golden color and barely foam. The smell has a touch of metal. There is also a mild hop smell. The taste is not bad, but rather simple. The metal aroma that is slightly present in the smell is absent in the taste. There is a mild hop flavor. Not bad, but not very special. A nice beer to pour down on a sunny day.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On nitrotap at Sheridan’s, Zagreb (thanks Željko!). Damn, didn’t realize this was so "rare". Lucky I spotted it on the tap list/blackboard. Golden body, clear, nitro head. Aroma slightly muted by the nitrogen, of course, but ok enough, just some light herbal, vaguely flowery notes, somewhat soapy. Smooth (surprise surprise) toasty malty taste, some herbal hops, nice subdued apricot in the background. Quite drinkable and good for what it is. Pretty flawless "everyday" beer. I’d up the hops a little, but that’s just me.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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

Draught at Porter & Sons. Pours hazy blond with white head. Grainy and floral in the nose, a little sweet and also pear. Tastes grainy, a little rotten and sweet with bitter undertones. Light body, grainy finish, fizzy. Gets better in the 3rd sip.
