3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle at Cork Cricket Club. Pours a clear golden with a thin white head. Not too many sparkles, looks a little on the flat side. Aroma is lovely and fruity - a pile of fresh citrus and strawberry, Cascade hops are very prominent. Taste is medium sweetness and medium bitterness. Quite nicely balanced. Not too dry a finish, nice light bitterness, maybe a touch under-carbonated. Overall, very refreshing and pleasant drinking.

Cold bottle. Pale orange, little head. Decent enough - a little watery, earthy, balanced bitterness with no astringency. Drinkable beer, but not very exciting.
