Den här ölen blev jag aldrig riktigt klok på, smaken var ’märklig’, fruktig och spretig dessutom var kroppen liten.

Brun i kroppen. En hel del frukt. Beskan lägger sig rätt snabbt. Fint balanserad.

Staffan47 (803) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - AUG 11, 2013
På mikkeller & friends. Maltig och pigg. Känns färsk och fräsch. Lite mer humle än jag är van med för IRA-stilen. Gillar skarpt. Lite för kall men har inget tålamod.

Very good. Doesn't really taste like a red. Very hoppy, fresh tasting with that 3F citrus kick to it. Enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
