3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.5l bottle @ The Diamond, Londonderry. Looks quite nice in the glass at least with a cloudy orangey golden body with a tall and really lasting eggshell colored head that’s generously lacing down the sides of the glass. Oh, smells really nice also. Sweet and fruity with a nice not too aggressive hop bit. Sweet peach and some pale malts. Nice aroma. It’s just about average on the carbonation and it has a thin oily texture in the mouth. Sweetish, not much hop resistance here, and it’s really lightdrinkable. A little dryish. Some hop sweetness,and it is in general quite on the sweeter side of the Golden scale. Quite a nice not too complocated one. 07.06.2016

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.
