Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - AUG 9, 2008
Cask at GBBF 08. Deep amber colouration. Sugary, malty aroma which leads into a strong caramel flavour. Quite light given the strength. Not that impressive.

KimJohansen (10349) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - JUL 22, 2008
Draught @ Franciscan Well. Clear red with tiny short lasting off white head. Sweet fruity aroma. Sweet flavor with fruity,caramel and hoppy notes leading it to a bitter finish.

UPDATED: FEB 17, 2009 @ Franciscan Well in Cork: Warm clear reddish amber, short lasting head, weak notes of hops, getting stronger in mouth where malt fruit, and yeast is adding up. Sweet flavour, and lack of finish.

onlyrocknroll (379) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - JUL 24, 2007
A very attractive amber colour. Some caramel, a little more tart then most Irish ales. Quite nice, except for the fact that it finishes very abruptly.

Bull and Castle - Draught; Nice red colour with an enjoyable fruity/hop aroma. Had a short finish but it did not detract from it. Nice.
