This 50% malted wheat and barley beer was commissioned by the John Hewitt Bar to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the birth of Barney Hughes, philanthropist and inventor of the Belfast Bap. The story goes he handed out free vouchers to folks down on their luck which they could redeem for Belfast Baps from his bakery.

Cloudy orange, no head. Faint spice in the aroma, nothing defined. Flavour is clean malt, some spice and some dry wheat notes. Really light bodied, very fizzy. Short finish. Needs more of everything.

# 3521 ersma: was für ein zufall, das bier heißt so wie der wohnort meiner partnerin. und wer hat es aus irland angeschleppt? kräftig goldfarben und recht perlig, was sich aber nicht im schaum bemerkbar macht. der geruch ist säuerlich-süßlich mit fruchtigen anklängen. der antrunk ist malzig, leicht melassig mit herben noten. aromen von kräutern und tannennadeln. die mitte wird etwas bitterer, ingwernoten kommen hinzu, obwohl keiner drin ist. eine leichte schärfe des pfeffers ist aber bemerkbar, die mit jedem schluck ansteigt. der abgang ist deutlich kräuterig und zunehmend schärfer. die flasche ist ok. fazit: im ansatz spannend, aber im ergebnis nicht so überzeugend. die schärfe ist gut, die deutliche ingwer-note ist übertrieben. vor allem: wo kommt sie her? kann man trinken, muss man nicht. 8,9,8,8,9,8 - 8,20 29/9/14

Bottle - pours hazy honey with a short lived head. Wheat and some spice. Taste is fairly neutral across the palate, perhaps slight bitterness but not a lot.Mouthfeel is on the thin side.

Awkward set of flavors. Do not really like. Christmas spices with light body. Mixes weird.

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - MAY 25, 2014
Bottled 17/05/14. A hazy tan coloured beer with no head. Nice spicy aroma. Taste is wheaty and spicy. Seems like ginger to me rather than those advertised but I’m sure I’m wrong. Refreshing and tasty enough interesting beer.
