Appearance is a clear amber gold with a reasonably thick white head that hangs for a bit.
Smells of malts, barley, and something like fresh green wood.
The taste is of fresh grains. The hops come through but uniquely aren't especially bitter. A bit of honey sweetness tops it off.
Mouthfeel is thin and bubbly.
A pretty decent beer. Not a favorite style of mine but could be a good one to come back to anyway.
Serving type: bottle

I first had this from the bottle and though it was a decent beer, it was nothing to recommend to a friend. Then I went to my local Irish Pub, with the intent of having a couple Guinness with lunch, and found they had this on tap. I ordered one.
The head was minimal, but the appearance was a nice amber. The taste had a bit of hop but finished sweet. I'd describe the flavor as hoppy bubblegum. Surprisingly, I liked it. It was much better on-tap than from the bottle. I liked it so much I had another and never got to my Guinness (Sorry Grandpa McBride).
Serving type: on-tap
