2009-05-15. Dark amber red body with a good sized creamy cream coloured head and very good lace. Flavour is more bitter than I expected with a sharp bitterness on first sip, sweeter malt undertones feels just a touch to thin to balance the bitterness. Aroma is muted, non-descript hops and malt. Average palate is smooth, lightly carbonated. Okay. On tap at the brewpub.

Un jus de chaussette en arrière gout, une amertume assez prononcée, des bulles peu existante. Pas séduit par cette bière.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light amber coloured beer with a small off-white head and almost no carbonation. Rather light creamy aroam with some light malty and caramel touches. Creamy full palate. Finish is bitter, little caramel roasted touched with a longer light bitter ending. Nice irish ale.
