2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle at Mum and Dads, from Callans Dundalk, 30/08/14.
Clear golden amber with a well appointed off white head.
Nose is caramel malt, toasted bread, faint orange and citric peel.
Taste comprises more caramel malt, bitter orange, candied sugars, light bready notes.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with faint hop bitterness.
Not an IPA, kind of an ESB with a dose of hops or a lightly hopped APA. Sub par for style, no hops!

Mellow and inoffensive. Light hop flavor balanced with malts. Not very agressive but nothing particularly bad about it.

From bottle. Pours clear amber. Nice white head which dissipates quickly. No hop aroma. All crystal caramel malt. Taste is very sweet. Chewy. Couldn’t find bottling date on the bottle so perhaps this bottle is old and the hops have died. Would like to try it fresh.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep amber color, small white head, gone before I could taste it, no lacing. Candied apple, caramel, floral hops, some orange, biscuit in both aroma and flavor. Thin oily mouthfeel, mild bitterness, sweet biscuit and apples. Finish is short. Forgettable.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
På fad, Porterhouse, Dublin. Klar ravgylden med lavt off white skum-hovede. Karamel-malt og frugtige tropiske humle-noter i næsen. Velhumlet aroma efter irsk standard. God balance i smagen mellem maltsødmen og et medium bittert finish.
