3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
As Dublin Red, on tap at Dva Tona Bar, Split.
Darker amber body. Off white "nitroish" head. Weak malty nose, notes of peach and maaaybe caramel. Quite smooth (no surprise there) malty taste. Caramel, simple maltiness, some woody notes. Quite light bitterness. Not entirely bad, the point of this style still eludes me, but hey, simple, pleasant, maybe would work as a gateway beer, and, unlike so many beers of its kind, have a point like that.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled draft @ Delirium Hoppy Loft. Pours dark amber with a creamy & milky off-white head. Nose has an interesting touch of mint, floral with some Chinese medicinal herbs. Taste it touch mint, iron (which is also a note I got in their Hop head beer, interesting), grass, grains, lightly sweetish, metals & faint Chinese herbs. Touch watery mouth feel, not very exiting but manageable & okay brew.
