Draught at Maguire’s, Burgh Quay, Dublin. Attractive copper red with a dense cream head; weak fruity aroma; thin body with some sweet malty flavours and a sweet finish. Looks great - but it’s downhill from there on.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
2009-05-15. Dark amber - copper body with a modest beige head. Flavour has an interesting malty profile, tangy, light bitterness throughout, creamy finish with mild malt lingering. (6+) Aroma is mild but pleasant, light malt, sweet caramel touches over slightly drier malt, mild hops. (6+) Average palate is smooth. (3+) Overall impression is Kilkenny-esque but better. Enjoyable but on the mild side. On tap at the brewpub.
