Not as enticing as the other brews White Gypsy have on offer. Pours like a fine pale ale, but tastes very hoppy and bitter. Would definitely contemplate getting again, but only after sampling the rest of the series first.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Lovely murky amber red in colour, huge lasting foamy head, looks the business. Big malt sweetness in the aroma, bread, fruit, raspberry, strawberry. Flavour is a slight anti climax after the lovely nose, all malt, more fruit sweetness, but lack of hop bite and a touch watery. Soft carbonation, sweet, perhaps overly sweet and sugary in the finish. Finally an Irish APA with the requisite sweetness and they leave out the hops!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle (shared by omhper, thanks!). Hazy amber colour with a mediumsized white foamy head. Aroma is fruity and floral and has some mild strawberries as well. Probably brewed on quite hard water too. Flavour is fruity, floral, bigtime bitter with some slight sweet malty and bready notes. Mild earthyness in the finish too.
