Cask at Against The Grain, Dublin, Ireland

A: The beer is hazy amber in color and has no visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high beige head that has good retention properties and consistently left a short head covering the surface.
S: Light to moderate aromas of gooseberries and herbs are present in the nose.
T: Like the smell, the taste has flavors of gooseberries and herbs but these are somewhat balanced by flavors of amber malts. It has a light amount of bitterness. The flavors of gooseberries linger through the finish.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer really seems to work well on cask because it is not overly hoppy. It goes down easily.

Bubbly two finger head, rather long-lasting. Amber colour.
Floral and spicy green hops in the smell, really fresh green notes, like smelling a snapped flower stem. Herbs, lemon and some caramel too.
I can taste some toasted malts, some faint caramel and random nuttiness in the first sips, but later on the strong hops will simply dominate. Some citrus fruitiness, followed by huge green leafiness, spicy herbs, pine resin, perfumey flowers, ending with an aggresively dry bitterness.
Medium carbonation, crisp, but a bit too aggressive, not really refreshing.
Nice one, tho a bit exaggerating with the hops for my taste, should have been.. tastier.

Lovely, coppery, amberish, golden glistening beer with a sturdy cap of fine beige bubbles. Spicy and leafy on the nose, and floral as well - a bit of geranium and rose, some evergreen and wintergreen and lemon thyme. Aromatic and zesty, but subdued; toasty and nutty malts provide a solid foundation. Crisp and quick bitterness on the palate, rosy and slightly citric, with a lovely tropical herb character of lemongrass and sulfurous cilantro. Pecans and caramel characterize the malts, and after the first wave of bitterness the beer leaves very little on the palate; a very dry and light mouthfeel. This beer is very good, and I find myself craving more after it's gone. Great for a session, if I was the kind of person who enjoys drinking the same beer over and over again.
