Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Gold to amber with white head. At last, the Spoons Fest is really coming to town, light hoppy dry bitter, quite lemony and grapefruit skin, fresh (surprisingly) and nicely refreshing. My best Northern Ireland beer to date.

Crosse Keys Spoons. Clear gold beer. Residual white head. Light dry palate. Moderate carbonation. Nice sweet and bitter hops! Some aniseed in the background. Tropical fruits in the foreground, mango and others, fruity! Then a bitter pine kick. Finishes semi dry. Tasty and highly drinkable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at the Porterhouse, Temple Bar. Light amber/gold with decent white head that lasts the distance. Aroma is a nice citrus hit with a touch of orange, slight grassy note, bit of sweet malt. Taste is citrus (lemon especially), light tangerine, and bit of grapefruit; nice biscuit and caramel character from the malt. Very well balanced. Good degree of citric hop zing in the aftertaste, nice crisp bitter finish. A great pale ale which I was fortunate to get in tip-top fresh condition.
