The second of the Belfast Quarter Beers is a rich warming, premium beer. A classic red Irish ale with a full bodied flavour. The area Belfast knows today as the Cathedral Quarter is based largely around St. Anne’s Cathedral. Before its modern re-invention, the area was best known as a trade and warehousing district. With the decline of Belfast’s traditional industries, arts and cultural organisations took the opportunity to establish themselves in the area. Today the area continues to revitalise, placing itself at the centre of Belfast’s social and cultural scene.

dantheman278 (1361) - SCOTLAND - JUL 13, 2013
Bottle at home. Dark orange amber, thin head fades to nothing. Softest damp pine, light spice, sweet malt nose. Slightly sweet honeyed malt, bland malty body, pretty flat, soft musty bitter finish. Fine, very average.

ianwelby (1463) - SCOTLAND - JUL 5, 2013
Clear amber-coloured beer with a frothy head and aroma of caramel and floral hop. It’s lively on the tongue with a hit of spicy sweetness up front and the finish is bitter but a touch flat. Has a nice body to it though.

Sizzler80 (502) - Dublin, IRELAND - OCT 26, 2012
Rusty pour with a very thin head. Aroma: all very faint. Hops, lemon, malt, grass and a small musty smell. Taste: initially pretty good but it turns almost stale. You get the hops, citrus and malt but it turns a bit sour, particulary when it warms.

garthicus (2937) - Dublin, IRELAND - OCT 23, 2012
Bottle. Appearance: Dark orange. Little to no head. Aroma: Grassy, lemon, a little hoppy, quite grassy, caramel. Flavour: Caramel, spice, a little flat, some weird sweetness going on, sickly, grassy finish. I’m wondering was there something wrong with this bottle.

kiwianer (3428) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 6, 2012
The head is medium, the color dark-brown. It smells barley, sweet. The taste is malty, sweet a bit darkmalty. Ok. 10/8/8/8/-/8
