Palme (4329) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 7, 2016
0.5l bottle @ The Diamond, Londonderry. Looks quite nice in the glass at least with a cloudy orangey golden body with a tall and really lasting eggshell colored head thats generously lacing down the sides of the glass. Oh, smells really nice also. Sweet and fruity with a nice not too aggressive hop bit. Sweet peach and some pale malts. Nice aroma. Its just about average on the carbonation and it has a thin oily texture in the mouth. Sweetish, not much hop resistance here, and its really lightdrinkable. A little dryish. Some hop sweetness,and it is in general quite on the sweeter side of the Golden scale. Quite a nice not too complocated one. 07.06.2016

500ml bottle from Tesco, Enniskillen (1.63):
Starting ridiculously weak, particularly the nose; it was a struggle to notice anything early on but it did pick up come the taste. Some nice citrus & pine came through with lighter malts & just enough hops & bitterness to be noticed but it wasnt a great beer by any stretch; drinkable but not worth seeking out Im afraid.

pityu (681) - Budapest, HUNGARY - OCT 13, 2015
Bottle - Clear golden colour, Average white head collapsing fast. Cereal aromas with some butter, slight cooked vegetables. Taste of biscuit, some hop bitterness, grassy and herbal notes. Medium body, low carbonation, dry finish. Easy drinking pale ale.

Cunningham (7334) - Halden, NORWAY - OCT 5, 2015
Hazed golden color with a creamy white layer on top. Lovely lacing. Some butterscotch, citric and fruity. Medium body and a soft carbonation. Tad sweet and a fine bitterness. Partly destroyed by the butterscotch.

Flaska inkpt av frun i Dublin. Ljust brnstensfrgad vtska med fingertjockt skum. Brd och karamellkola i doften. Ltta toner av mjuk fruktkaka i smaken och en ganska ptaglig och blommig beska. Pminner definitivt mer om en engelsk bitter i bde smak och frg.

On tap at The Bar With No Name, pours a clear yellow with a small white head. Nose is light, with some floral notes. Flavour is very floral, with loads of flowery and almost minty qualities. Pretty interesting and drinkable. Nice stuff.
