Cask & Bottled;
The second of the Belfast Quarter Beers is a rich warming, premium beer. A classic red Irish ale with a full bodied flavour. The area Belfast knows today as the Cathedral Quarter is based largely around St. Anne’s Cathedral. Before its modern re-invention, the area was best known as a trade and warehousing district. With the decline of Belfast’s traditional industries, arts and cultural organisations took the opportunity to establish themselves in the area. Today the area continues to revitalise, placing itself at the centre of Belfast’s social and cultural scene.

No real aroma, unfermented malt, odd flavors linger. Looks great and well packaged, but disappointed overall.

Tasting at the ever gracious ChrisO’s. Clear gold beer, good white head. Palate is light and crisp. Light tangy fruits - little sourish orange and dried fruits. Trace of soap. Light dry finish. Just about meets the mark.
