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.

AshtonMcCobb (2685) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 8, 2012
Pours amber with gentle bubbles and a good head. The nose closely resembles malt loaf. The taste is of cake mixture, initially, then creaminess and finishing with biscuits. The palate is at least medium bodied with a nice creamy texture and a clean but long finish. Overall, a really balanced and tasty ale.

ianwelby (497) - SCOTLAND - JUL 5, 2013
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.
