På fat @ Porterhouse Central, Dublin. Guldfärgad med medelstort vitt skum. ´Dofter av persika, melon, apelsin, citron och blommor. De tropiska frukterna är till glädje även för smaklökarna, liksom blommigheten. Väl avvägd beska och sötma.

niquillis (2344) - 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.

Creedence (287) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - 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.
