I agree with onlyrocknroll, pours hazy orange with a nice head and smells of caremel. The sweet fruit followed by a long dryness is also spot on which makes the beer taste like a cider. A nice beer that I hope will improve, I would certainly have it again even to only take me back to my cider days!

The very best example of an Irish Ale I’ve 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 Ale’s which tend to be over-carbonated. Beautiful finish on this one, another good one from this brewer.

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.

bottle at home - rich tasting, dark/copper colored beer. Prefer the same stable’s Helvick Gold and overall find myself liking IPAs in general

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.
