Almost no aroma. Clear with a very thin head. High carbonation leaves tounge tingling at the finish. Not very interesting overall.

omhper (22306) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - APR 14, 2011
Draught at O’Neills, Dublin. Clear pale golden, minimal head. Fruity nose with sligh tspicy hops. Light bodied with clean, spritzy mouthfeel. Slight salty bitterness. A straightforward beer, more in line with the commercial examples of kölsch than the more traditional ones.

sebletitje (8270) - Enghien, BELGIUM - APR 8, 2011
Draft @ O’Neills, Dublin. Dorée pale, col blanc. Arôme, houblon herbeux, note légčre de levure rappelant l’étable avec un nez végétale et dans le style avec trčs peu de traces de malt. Au goűt une bičre avec un profile houblonné et fleuri laissant une bonne amertume en bouche ainsi que une légčre présence de grains/orge. Pas mauvaise, mais pas vraiment mon style.

jgb9348 (5319) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - APR 1, 2011
Crystal clear gold coloured body with a large white head and tons of bubbles rising from the bottom of the glass. Aroma of malt, soap and clean fresh hops. Light-bodied; Mild malty flavour showing some yeast, a bit of sugars and a nice drying taste. Aftertaste shows some sugars, a dash of light german hops and a maltiness which lasts on the palate. Overall, a nice beer to try in Ireland, but not an amazing beer. Stick with Galway Hooker if you only get one here. I sampled this pint on draught at the Bull & Castle in Central Dublin, Republic of Ireland on 20-February-2009.

Clear light to medium yellow orange color with a small, fizzy, fair lacing, mostly diminishing, white to off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, toasted, butter. Flavor is moderate sweet and light to moderate bitter with a average duration. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is flat. [20090804]

Got this on draught in the Bull and Castle pub in Dublin. Pleasant golden colour with a decent and fairly lasting white head. Nice fruity aroma with a Taste was quite citrus and gently hoppy with a nice clean, crisp and slightly bitter finish but was perhaps a little watery. Had a nice, lasting aftertaste. Beer was better than I expected and I may well go back to it at another stage.

Cask at GBBF. Pale yellow with a small white head. Sweet malt aroma with diacetyl. Sweet and thin diacetyl bomb in the mouth.
