50cl bottle. Pours dark red white head. Roasted nuts, burned wood, toffee. Nose follows into flavours. Definite burnt notes which dries the mouth with a nice bitterness. Body is light and the flavour cannot carry this so is watery on the finish. Okay just.

The very best example of an Irish Ale Iíve had to date. Not my favorite style to be sure, but this was very easy to enjoy. Bready malts highlighted by a smoothness rarely found in Irish Aleís which tend to be over-carbonated. Beautiful finish on this one, another good one from this brewer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle after dinner in Market Lane. Pours a deep copper/red with a lasting off-white foam. Aroma of apples, citrus, redcurrant and caramel. Medium caramel sweetness with a nice citrus finish. Slightly dry, lingering hops and smooth carbonation. Worked very well as an after-dinner beer, very light and refreshing.

A little too bitter and metallic in the end, but a great copper colour with a quite complex flavour.
