Hand pump @ L Mulligan Grocer. Brilliant copper poor, lovely foamy white head. Not much aroma, some dusty malt, orange peel. Nice fruit caramel notes in the flavour, not shy of hop bitterness in the finish. Smooth mouth feel, flat carbonation. Suits hand pump well, I like it.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle at Courtney’s in Killarney. The beer is a slighly hazy reddish-copper color with a medium thin and foamy off-white head that burns away quickly. Small patches of lacing. Aroma of grain and caramel. Light-bodied with flavors of caramel malt, slight hops and a bit of cardboard. The finish is semi-sweet with a short earthy malt aftertaste. Barely average overall.

Assaggiata alla spina, niente di eclatante, meglio tornare alla stout...prevalenza di malto caramellato

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled, 0.5l. Slightly hazy copper color with thin beige head, soft carbonation and some yeast residue. Aroma of spicy hops, barley malt, yeast and strong fruitiness. Taste of caramel malt and dried fruits, on the other hand aftertaste is long and pleasantly hoppy. Medium to full bodied, slick texture and average carbonation in palate. I liked this one very much...
