3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the Black Sheep in Dublin. The pour’s deep gold with a small white head. The nose is light lemon bitterness, some grass and general citrus fruits. Fragrant meadow. The taste is marmalade, some soft lemon. A bit syrupy. Sweet. Medium body, this drinks just hot enough to suggest the chunky ABV. Overall, pretty good stuff.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at The Black Sheep, Dublin. Amber/gold pour with frothy clean white head. Aroma is led by pineapple, with hints of citrus, mango, and very sweet orange - bit of sweet malt and booze in there too. Taste gives sweet pineapple and orange, hints of pine, some sticky malt notes, and a whole lot of booze, Bitterness actually manifests itself as quite herbal and spicy in the end, although nowhere near as bitter as I’d expect. Not bad, although the booze makes it a little too hot for my liking: covers up what could be a wonderful hop character.
