3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: APR 19, 2014 On tap at Tadg’s. It’s a nice amber colored beer with no real head, the aroma was pretty mild. The flavor was a nice bitter, malty, slightly sweet beer & I got a hint of orange? It had a kind of sweet malty body which was balanced out by enough bitterness. A solid beer but nothing to write home about. ---update--- On tap at Tadg’s Gastro Pub, 5% a clear amber gold with a filmy off-white head. The taste is bitter, nutty with some citrus. The body is quite zesty with a round mouthfeel. Fairly average but tasty enough for all that.

Draught at Q-Brick. Nose if grassy, light caramel, stewed fruit, minerals, 7-Up. Medium amber color. Light malt flavors, light hop, good balance but lacks punch and complexity. A good driniking, simple beer that I think would be much better on the hand pump.
