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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at Porter & Sons. Deep golden with a white head. Aroma of bready and biscuity malt and some hops, earthy and slightly citric. Sweetish bready flavor with light fruity notes and a bitter hoppy finish, earthy and slightly citric and minerally. Medium-bodied. Decent and easy-drinking. First sips are pretty boring, but it really grows on me as I drink a bit more.
