COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
bottle & ke, regular
(originally Keg, special for Irish Craft Beer and cider Festival 2013)
Our festival special is an American Amber Ale that we’ve called Amber-Ella. We’ve had our pick of the Aussie hop harvest so it’s all about Galaxy and Ella in this rather special limited edition brew.

Benzai (14078) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - SEP 16, 2015
Bottle @ home. Hazy amber color, full sized a bit foamy off-white head that lasts for a long time. Aroma is malts, a hint of caramel, lightly hops, a hint of leaves, the slightest hint of raisins. Taste malts, very bitter, lightly hops. Medium body and firm carbonation. Solid beer, but you’ll only like it if you’re into very bitter beers.

Bottle shared. Pours light hazy orange with a medium cream head. Aroma of grapefruit, fruity hops, grass, light citrus and light malt. Flavour is light sweet and over moderate bitter. Light medium bodied with soft carbonation.

McTapps (6482) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - FEB 10, 2014
This wonderful beer pours out of the bottle (many thanks to Culchiem!) in a cloudy amber-reddish colour with low head and medium body. Nice aroma of hops and caramel. But the taste is just great: Pure, ripe grapefruit with its light sourness and bitter finish, citrus, hops and hay. Bitter-dry finish - pure grapefruit brewed into a beer. I enjoyed it a lot and feel the urge to go to the supermarket first thing tomorrow in the morning and to buy a pink grapefruit.

MichaelAwesome (6448) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - FEB 10, 2014
A nice one shared with McTapps. Classy nose of fine hops combined with a big grapefruit. Tastes like a grapefruit with that typical thin-bitter end. Classy and refreshing one. Would have loved to try that one in summer.

Bottle 33cl, kindly shared by Dominique thanks. A cloudy copper beer with good head. Nose is on apricot and exotic fruits. Aroma is on hop resin, honey, pine, exotic fruits, almond, coconut, medium sweet, finish again on hop resin.

mkel07 (5153) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUN 18, 2015
Taster at GABS Melbourne 230515. Poured from a bottle. To say that I am partial to an amber ale is an understatement and this one I found to be more hoppier and less maltier than I was exoected. Passionfruit in the nose with a smooth easy to drink flavour.

Bottle at home courtesy of the beer nut, cheers john
dark hazy ruby with fluffy amber head which collapses to a lacing. Rich peaches and mango on the nose. Medium carbonation and body, fruity gooseberry, fairly bitter but balanced by digestive biscuit malt and red berry flavours from hops. Well made amber giving 5am saint a run for its money.

Vaiz (4258) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - SEP 17, 2015
Bottle at home. Hazy orange pour, thin white head. Aroma of crispy hops, floral, pine, citrus, some resin and a hint of toffee. Flavor is very bitter, fruity hops, a bit spicy and with some caramel malts. More like an IPA, and a very decent one too.
