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.

Bottle. Pours hazy golden yellow with a mostly fading off white head. Aroma of caramel, bread, toffee. Taste is sweet, more like a Belgian dubbel, hint of citrus on the finish. Oily mouthfeel, light carbonation.

BeerViking (3322) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 14, 2015
To be fair, this bottle was a little past its best-before. It poured amber-brown with little head and aromas of toffee malt and faintly of lemon. Body is caramel and earthy, with hints of sultana and redcurrant, and a surprisingly refreshing distant citric tang.

jamaty (1431) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 8, 2015
Dorada miel, rojiza con un par de dedos de espuma. Aroma lupulado floral. El Sabor continua el aroma, con cuerpo moderado y carbonatacion media pero presente siempre. En cualquier caso, no es gran cosa.

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