2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Nothing inherently wrong with this beer but also quite boring. Not
Much of an Irish ale fan, and while the beer has plenty of mats, I just didn’t much care for it.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
400ml bottle into shaker. Smells of malt and phenol out of the bottle, less so out of the glass. Deep copper/caramel sauce colour. A few bubbles make an appearance. Thin head. Watery mouthfeel, crisp malt finish. Slight touch of hop bitterness and liquorice late on. Nice enough and very easy drinking.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
40 cl. bottle@home with the missus in pilsner glass@approx. 7 degrees C. Pours almost clear red-amber with medium off white head with sufficient retention. Aroma of roasted malt and caramel malt - thankfully not too sweet. Taste well balanced with the roasted malt to the foreground and with a pleasant hop bitterness in the aftertaste. Medium carbonation and medium body. Went well with chicken salad with leeks - not sure it would be interesting enough to drink on its own with the same pleasure.
