cask & bottle, regular This beer has was originally brewed exclusively for this Wetherspoon real-ale festival and is an Irish pale ale. It has a medium-bodied character and good bitterness, complementing the full hop flavour which lingers on the palate and in the aroma

500ml bottle from Tesco, Enniskillen (£1.63):
Starting ridiculously weak, particularly the nose; it was a struggle to notice anything early on but it did pick up come the taste. Some nice citrus & pine came through with lighter malts & just enough hops & bitterness to be noticed but it wasn’t a great beer by any stretch; drinkable but not worth seeking out I’m afraid.

Bottle - Clear golden colour, Average white head collapsing fast. Cereal aromas with some butter, slight cooked vegetables. Taste of biscuit, some hop bitterness, grassy and herbal notes. Medium body, low carbonation, dry finish. Easy drinking pale ale.

Cunningham (6557) - Halden, NORWAY - OCT 5, 2015
Hazed golden color with a creamy white layer on top. Lovely lacing. Some butterscotch, citric and fruity. Medium body and a soft carbonation. Tad sweet and a fine bitterness. Partly destroyed by the butterscotch.

Peter_L (1226) - SWEDEN - AUG 2, 2015
Flaska inköpt av frun i Dublin. Ljust bärnstensfärgad vätska med fingertjockt skum. Bröd och karamellkola i doften. Lätta toner av mjuk fruktkaka i smaken och en ganska påtaglig och blommig beska. Påminner definitivt mer om en engelsk bitter i både smak och färg.

On tap at The Bar With No Name, pours a clear yellow with a small white head. Nose is light, with some floral notes. Flavour is very floral, with loads of flowery and almost minty qualities. Pretty interesting and drinkable. Nice stuff.
