COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Clear amber-coloured beer with a frothy head and aroma of caramel and floral hop. It’s lively on the tongue with a hit of spicy sweetness up front and the finish is bitter but a touch flat. Has a nice body to it though.

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.

RichardGretton (4247) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - APR 20, 2014
Bottle. Amber beer with a strongish head. The aroma is mainly malty, and the flavour is also fairly sweet with some mild roastedness. Overall quite a sweet beer with some bitterness, average. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
