niquillis (812) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 9, 2013
On keg at Bull & Castle, Dublin. Pours golden with froth head. An average golden beer, maybe the keg killed the flavour. OK but boring.

kiwianer (3317) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 9, 2013
The head is ok, the body golden. It smells hoppy, citrus fresh. The taste is hoppy, intensive, aromatic, a bit citrus. Nice and tasty. 12/11/11/11/-/11

Creedence (282) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 6, 2013
Cask at Porterhouse Cork. Pours a crystal clear gold with a lasting white bubbly head. Very delicate nose of citrus, bubblegum and sea salt. Very light sweetness and a light bitterness. Very smooth and very refreshing, but retaining a nice medium body. Much more delicate and subtle then the non dry-hopped edition, but still a very nice beer.
Earlier Rating: 2/25/2013 Total Score: 3.8
Cask at Porterhouse Cork. Pours a hazy golden amber with a thin creamy white head. Nippy nose of citrus, fresh herby hops and a light hint of sweet berry. Taste is lightly sweet with a stronger bitterness - I got lemon, lime, raspberry and a hint of what I imagine freshly cut grass would taste like. Nice lightly carbonated, smooth lingering bitterness. Had it on draught before, and it was decent, but a very very tasty beer on cask. Delish.

Cask in Bull & Castle. Clear orange amber with a thin head, good lacing. Aroma is light fruit. Flavour is grainy to start with leading to an intense and long lasting bitter hop finish. Palate is dry

ciaranc (781) - Dublin, IRELAND - DEC 3, 2012
UPDATED: AUG 15, 2013 Cask @ The Porterhouse, Dublin. Hazy blonde, thin white head, great lacing. Lovely resinous, floral aroma, hints of summer fruits. Mellow hop, floral taste. Tastes like a packet of digestives in a glass. Nice background hop bitterness. Touch watery in the body. Flat carbonation from the cask. Bit of metallic in the finish. Doesn?t quite work, overrated. Related on keg, better.
