A nice amber tone with a lot of transparency and a half inch cream white head. Smells of hops first hit the nose almost as much as an IPA. A much more malty taste yet still toned by the hops. Almost in the realm of a Belgian double. The feel could be less biting. A very drinkable beer that tastes more than it should. Cheers!

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
