Cask at Brew Dock Dublin. Light golden orange pour. Hoppy resinous aroma. Smooth hoppy pine taste with bittersweet finish. A very nice beer on cask

Z początku wydawało się przyzwoitym piwem w stylu Pale Ale o nieco mało amerykańskiej koncepcji jak na American Pale Ale. Generalnie dużo chmielu lecz taki bardzo brytyjski charakter i naprawdę solidna goryczka do tego. Niestety w miarę czasu piwo staje się mało orzeźwiające i męczące takimi tytoniowo, herbacianymi mdłymi smakami. Bez szału.

Leighton (18038) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 17, 2016
Can at home in London - picked up at Borough Wines in Hackney. Pours mostly clear orange-gold with a creamy, white head. Grainy malts in the nose, a little apple, ripening citrus. Light sweet flavour with further pale grains, white bread, fine grassy bitterness. Light bodied with massaging carbonation. Finishes with more grassy bitterness, simple pale bread, lightly husky grains, light apple, orange peel. A little too bitter in the aftertaste. So so overall.

250 ml. draft @ Moeder Lambics Fontainas. Clear darker shade of orange with a creamy solid white head. Nose is moldy industrial hops, barn & unpleasant mothballs. Taste is weird moldy, big unpleasant herbal mothballs, something dirty, faint butter & big malty & herbal body. Strange mothball bitter profile doesn’t appeal to me, body saves it a bit, taste is not the greatest.

Draught at Moeder Lambics Fontainas. Pours hazy orange with a large, frothy white head, long retention with good lacing. Aroma is medium toast and cracker malt, medium woody and earthy hops and apple esters. Flavor is medium cracker and toast malt, medium earthy and woody hops and bitterness with a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

zinneke (204) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUN 6, 2016
Aroma is grassy, strawberry (yoghurt), the strawberry dominates after a while.. Taste is medium bitter, malty (wort) and a hint of cardboard. Malty and hoppy finish. Ok beer, but slightly infected in some sort..

Draught Dense white head over faintly veiled orange beer. Fruity nose with citrus, but also strawberry, somewhat toasted malts. Bitter, bitter vegetables and kumquat. Medium bodied, well-carbonated. Despite the hops, quite clean flavourprofile. Quite good, better even seen its ABV.

The beer has a nice look. The color was a nice amber. The beer has a slight cloudiness. You can see some nice bubbles rising towards the top. The beer pours a nice amount of soft white foam. The bulk collapses, only leaving a thin drape. The smell of the beer is delicious. The smell reminds me a little of a stout. I smell some bitter roasted barley aroma’s and a hint of chocolate. There is also that familiar fruity strawberry aroma, together with a fresh hoppy sweetness. I really wonder what causes that strawberry aroma in so many Irish ales. It gives the beers a sweet, rich smell. The taste of the beer is just slightly less than the smell. There is a lovely citrusy hop flavor, with loads of lemon. There is also a hint of strawberry and roasted barley. The beer has a delicious hoppy flavor. The beer has the right amount of gas. I like it.
