My notes have Dubliner Irish so I hope this is the same thing. Draft before RBSG. Amber with and small whitish head. Nose is buttery and sweet. Lots of butterscotch notes, in fact. Taste is buttery, malty and sweet with light fruit and a hint of caramel. Body is medium and creamy with a light carbonation feel. Finishes with malts, more butterscotch, buttery notes and light fruits.

Nice clean beer. Good yellow color, nice full head. This was very similar to Harp, I don’t know if that is by design or coincedense. I think design. Another good beer from Old Dominion.

Tap. A nice yellow color in the glass. Leaves a much better taste in my moth than other Irish lagers. A very sweet malty flavor with hints of fruit.

The restaurant claims that they had this brewed because the Harp for sale in the U.S. is no longer made in Ireland, so they’re trying to reclaim that kind of beer. Big head, mostly dense, on a yellow body. Fruity up front, and I’m inclined to think it is a little buttery; dry. Sweeter after a bit, not unclean, but not something I would want to drink again and again. Tingling palate from the carbonation. (on tap at The Dubliner, Washington, D.C.)
