2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
The hop character of this beer surprised me. I would normally expect given the style and the St. Jame’s Gate origin, the hop character would be subtle to non-existent. In this case though it is a decent amount of citrus and pine, very much like an American pale. It is a nice clear orange color w/ a foamy and long lasting head. After the initial surprise from the aroma hops, the beers character becomes a bit more subdues and earthy. There is a bit of a plaster note as well as some astringency. This has low carbonation but neither much bitterness nor malt character so it comes off as a bit watery. I think I might call this an ordinary bitter stylistically, despite that touch of American hop character. It is not a terrible beer but isn’t exactly extremely flavorful or subtle so I will probably be passing on this in the future.

Cerealy aroma with slightly piney, slightly fruity hops in the background. Carbonation is medium and the body is medium to light. The taste is medium bitter, with the grainy malts making the biggest impression.

Can. Light golden amber color with a foamy white head that dissipates quickly. Light aroma of hops and grassy malt. Taste is light citrus and slightly herbal hops. A brisk tingle of carbonation and a finish of dry herbal hops round it out. It’s a bit lighter on the hops than I expected for a pale ale but actually pretty decent.

Tall pint can, part of the "Irish Beer Discovery Pack" sold at the local Harris Teeter here in Huntersville, NC. Pours a golden color with a nice white foamy head. Aroma is of hops and some ale esters. Flavor is slightly sweet and a bit of the hops. Not the best from Swithwick’s, but it’s worth drinking during the St. Patrick’s Day holiday.
