Real ale version on tap at CBM Koenji. Clear ruby red color with zero head. Nice floral hop, rooibos, rhubarb and tea aromas on the nose. Medium body with creamy mouthfeel. Flat carbonation. As it warms up more of fruitiness comes out. Really smooth and rich finish with a tea-like dryness present. Solid Irish ale.
