33 cl bottle. Drank a little too cold at first. Nice reddish colour, refreshing almost sweet aroma. Long during sweetnes followed by a nice bitter finish.

I was expecting a journey to find the lepricon with the gold at the end of the rainbow. I did not see the rainbow nor any lepricon with gold. OK beer.

First of, it looks great. With that red colour and sweet and roasted smell, you can tell this is going to be a great experience. However, once in your mouth that great feeling never really comes to you. It doesn’t taste bad, far from it. But it also never really shines as bright as you hoped. But it is still a good, solid beer. Not fantastic, but in the end I’m happy to drink it.

33cl. Tap. And what not. An alternative to lager. Not an ale. Not a bitter. Not a schwarzbier. Pleasantly carbonated. Slightly malty. Easy drinking. Nothing special. Never was.

A pretty basic ale with not a lot going on. MJ must have been drunk as hell at a great Irish pub to fall in love with this one cause I can’t find anything extraordinary about it. A dry creamy ale that doesn’t go a whole lot of places besides down. Forgettable.

Robe ambrée et limpide. Une mousse très épaisse se forme facilement. Arômes café, biscuit, caramel. Léger fumé. Texture crémeuse. Assez longue en bouche. Une bière industrielle honorable.

Tap @ JB. You all know how this pours, that weird foamy thing, turning into a clear mahogany brown, with a clean, dense creamy white head. Aroma is pretty tame, with caramel, sweet malts, weak honey, slighty salty fruits, old and stale hops. Taste is slightly bitter, up front is some sweetness tho. Watery bodied, with a rather flat carbonation. Pretty dark meh to me, easy drinking tho.
