4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Una fantastica produzione per questa Pale Ale assaggiata presso il pub dell’omonimo pub presente a Dublino (attenzione ha cambiato nome sull’insegna, ora sia chiama Smithson).
Schiuma mediamente persistente, profumo presente ma non invadente, aroma incredibile ! Un concerto di luppoli che variano l’amaro nelle varie parti del palato, una incredibile apoteosi di piacere. Increbilmente buona.
Gradazione medio bassa e retrogusto di resina e caramello molto soddisfacente.

Nice clarity but too little head. Good light roast and caramel aromas that continue in the flavor. Nice medoum body but the hops overpower the mouthfeel. Doesn’t end bitter however.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Enjoyed at the brewpub whilst chatting with the brewer. Forgot to ask the ABV but will email. Appearance: Golden Orange, small but snow white head. Aroma: floral hops, vanilla, malt, caramel. Flavour: Nicely hopped, slight pine, yeast, malt with some fruitiness and a medium bitter finish. Nice indeed.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Messrs. Deep copper orange colour, not much head at all. Aroma heavy on the pine, slight passionfruit and caramel malt notes coming through too. Taste was fairly impressive with pine & tropical hop flavours on show, decently balanced with the caramel malt. Bit of a rough mouthfeel. Not much of a lingering bitterness unfortunately, could do with a higher ABV (think it only came in at 4.5%). A decent hoppy session ale, pretty impressed but plenty of room for improvement if they’re going to tweak their recipe.

On cask. Poured dark orange with a light head. Beautiful full on citrus hop aroma. Nice and bitter grapefruit flavour from the hops. Perfect beer with some fried food. Really enjoyable IPA/APA. One of the better irish ones i?ve had on cask.

This brewpub was recommended by the people at Porterhouse, It is a brewpub off O’connell Street near the Liffy. The first beer tasted was the seasonal APA. Nice ale that poured a clear light amber or tea like. The ale had a small white head with citrus aroma. The medium body ale had a lively carbonation. The ale had a smooth finish and a dry hop bitter aftertaste.
