Cask; Produced regularly for the Crown & Glory in Belfast.

A wonderful straw coloured ale with hints of coriander on the aftertaste. This is a fantastic earthy session beer.

Cask (handpump) at GBBF, day 2 in August 2010. Noted at 3.8%. Rather pale colour - light gold tending towards straw. Another clean and dry but not very distinctive blond coloured ale - one of very many at the festival. Nothing to really make this stand out from the crowd. Agree that, despite the colour, it came over more as a bitter than a zesty golden ale. Serviceable quaffer.

Half a pint (3,8%) at McHugh’s in Belfast. Clear golden with a white head. Slightly fruity and hoppy aroma with malt and hints of caramel, spices and citrus. Lightly fruity and quite bitter. Long bitter aftertaste. More flavour and bitterness than expected and a good session beer. (2011-06-10)

From tap at mchugh's. Not very much here.. Littlebit of caramel and a high bitter aftertaste. Not a winner ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Unadventurous brew specifically for the Crown & Liquor Saloon. Not great in the palate.

A pint taken at the 2010 Great British Beer Festival at Earls Court London on 4th August, handpulled into a festival straight sided sleeve pint glass. It was a 3.8%ABV straw blond coloured bitter, have they changed the beer completely and just kept the name? Anyway, the beer was fairly bland and odourless to be honest. I only had it so I could add Northern Ireland to my country list as I try to drink around the world:To be fair, it was a light session beer that didn’t have enough about it against some of the more robust beers I was trying on either side of it.

Flat amber bitter with Fruity blackcurrant nose and dry grassy malt flavour which gives way to papery slight bitter finish. No carbonation.

Cask at GBBF 2010. A golden beer with a thin yellowish head. The aroma has notes of citrush fruits. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of hay. The body is light and I find the beer boring.

@ Crown & Glory, Belfast. Brassy amber. Light fruity, curranty aroma maybe with some pears. Light and balanced, with faint yeasty fruitiness and toasty malt character. Pretty drinkable.

Cask (or was it kegged?) in a private nook at The Crown in Belfast (most romantic pub in the world). Bright gold, stable head. Looks healthy. Smooth and soft. Smells and tastes too mild and subdued. Has sweet juicy malts and fruity hops with a nice spicy finish. Decent but plain.
