3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
February 15, 2011. Shared by garthicus with blankboy and me. 500ml bottle. Hazy copper with an average diminishing frothy off-white head. Lovely fruity aroma, yeasty and "Belgian" - smells a lot like a baked alaska, quite floral - almost 8/10! Taste is a tad harsh - apple and appleseed, young cheap chablis - green, bitter, some alcohol. Slick, astringent, weakly carbonated and light-bodied, finishes with some back-palate bitterness and dry acidity. Lovely aroma, a bit of a let-down afterward.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle pours an amber brown color with a finger off-white head that leaves some spots of lacing on the glass. Aroma is caramel and citrus with some other light fruits. Taste is a citrus hop bitterness with a fruity and caramel malty sweetness. Light to medium bodied with decent carbonation. Overall, a nice brew that tastes good and has a nice balance to it.

500ml brown bottle. Colour is orange, hazy. Lots of white head with lots of sticky lace. Aroma - caramel with citrus and floral hints. Taste - citrus, caramel, cardboard, minerals, quite dry. Light in body. Overall a decent looking brew, but falls short in flavour and finish. Disappointing. Would not drink again.

In bottle, thanks Gregor. Pours a cloudy amber colour with a thick white head. Aroma is quite fruity with yeast, biscuity malt and alcohol. A nice barnyard mustiness with honey, caramel and a yeasty linger. Moderate carbon ation and a dry finish. Light CO2 prickle and a lovely woody character. I really enjoyed this.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Finally (and probably temporarily) this beer brings me to the number one spot for raters of Irish beers. Bottle. Appearance: Copper, almost hazy. Medium off white head. Aroma: Mildly fruity, good amount of malt, nice yeast nose too with a pleasant apple quality. Flavour: Malt, nice caramel quality, bitter, lightly hopped with a good yeastiness too, long bitter finish, quite a nice brew I found it quite pleasant and would happily drink again.
