2009-05-20. Crisp yellow body with a small foamy white head and lace that fades. Mild aroma, muted hops are lightly grassy and floral, mild grainy pale malts. Flavour is also mild, light bitterness, grassy bit, mild pale malts. I preferred the lager I think. On tap at Franciscan Well, Cork

SeanMacGC (334) - Dublin, IRELAND - DEC 20, 2008
Draught. Pale golden pour, not too much on the nose. Hops on the nose, and not too much else on the palate. Decent enough mouthfeel.

DruncanVeasey (8012) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - DEC 20, 2008
The Bull and Castle, Dublin. Corn and cheesespread aroma. Butter, breakfast cereal, lemon-scented cleaning products. Slightly sick-flavoured big Custard Cream and cornflake finish. Drinks like a budget Albanian lager, but nothing as classy as Tirana. Zero hop or malt presence. Laughed my tits off when I saw it listed as a Kolsch on RB. But at least its not Guinness.
