2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle poured into a shaker. The aromas are not very strong on this one, but what does appear is a cereal and grainy note with a faint caramel sweetness and an abundant damp and leather aroma. Itís a dark, but clear, amber-orange color (maybe more brown than orange) with a big white-ish, puffy head. When it reduces, it gets a swiss-cheese look to it. The head hangs around for a while until it reduces to a soda-fizz looking ring, but it leaves a good amount of puffy lace down the glass. The taste is a flat, medium-light sweetness and light bitterness. The mouth is light bodied (maybe medium bodied), thin texture, with lots of effervescent, fizzy carbonation. Thereís a flat citrus flavor in the mouth with a bit of nut flavor and a light caramel. There seems to be an underlying rye, or just generally grainy, flavor throughout. It finishes with a light toasty note and some grassiness. The aftertaste is mostly clean with a rye and cereal flavor that doesnít linger very long.

Discreta ale irlandese dal colore rosso intenso e una buona schiuma, alcool inesistente (3.8%) e quindi scende giý come acqua, ma Ť anche noiosetta per questo. Oltre al poco corpo, in generale non mette in risalto particolari doti, giusto un poí di malto.

On tap. Creamy off white head with good retention. Clear and very dark amber colour. Almost inperceptible aroma. Taste is very weak, sligth toasted malt and caramel hints. Palate is watery and light body. It seems a little like foamy coloured water.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
La birra si presenta tendente al rosso nel suo bicchiere. Limpida filtrata. Al naso si avverte poco e anche in bocca non esalta. Un filo di caramello, una nota di luppolo nobile. Nel complesso equilibrata. Una birra palesemente industriale e di poco spessore.

Draft. Pours a clear amber beer with a creamy white head on top. Aroma is rather malty and slightly hopped. Flavor is fairly bitter and light. Great drinkability and soft mouthfeel. Just a decent drink.
