(on draugh at The Rover, Goteborg)
Amber color with a smooth off-white head. Aroma and flavor with notes of saffron. larsniclas (7284) - Billdal, SWEDEN - JUL 1, 2003
A beatiful beer to look at! Head like a polished floor.
A very soft palate, a bit sour and flavour from saffron. JoeMcPhee (10129) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 1, 2004
Red-orange colour with a thick creamy white head. Again, lots of fruitiness in this one but also some woodsy, resiny hop aroma. Flavour is also fruity, with some residual sweetness and the dry-hopping is noticed (and appreciated). Finish is much more bitter than I expected from the style, like the Irish Ale I had at the Porterhouse. Still very good. DJMonarch (9179) - Northwich, Cheshire, ENGLAND - OCT 25, 2005

On tap at the brewpub in Dublin. Poured a reddish brown with the nitrogen foam head. Tastes of some caramel, maybe some toasted almond. A little bit lighter on the hops than I hoped. Surprisingly crisp, because it looked to be creamy. culchiem (4237) - Berlin, GERMANY - JAN 27, 2011
Draught. Red with a nice lasting white head. Aroma is sweet with some fruit. Smooth mouth feel, with some malt and a hint of nuts in the finish. Foxbush (2141) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAR 10, 2012
Thhis was the second ale tasted at the brewpub on the Liffy. I was able to get a tour of the brewery. It is a very compact brewery with limited space. They do a great job. This ale was a reddish brown in color with a creamy head. The cabonation was soft for this medium body beer. The ale could take more hops, but otherwise a very balanced ale. Smooth finish with no aftertaste.
