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

Gurthnar (2479) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - SEP 13, 2014
Bottle, thanks to Cuso. Aroma gives me the impression of old hops. Clear yellow to golden colour, poor head. Taste is not good, astringent, sourish. Hard to perceive anything beyond that. I did not like this. For the love of hops I do not understand how are my notes so different from others’, but I will leave them as is, since it was 2 months ago. Hot candidate for a rerate someday.

Pours a clear golden color with white head. Caramel malt, some citrus, and a little biscuit on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a little flowery hop note.

Bottle from Beers of Europe. Poured a clear light amber with a frothy white head and some broken lace with a few bubbles. The aroma is big citrus grassy hop. The flavour is medium bitter with a citrus hop, light pepper spice palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation. A perfect summer ale. Highly drinkable.
