Appearance – Good amber colouration with a light head and very light lacing.

Smell – light notes of hops with some citrus and a faint wife of disinfectant. This last smell was a little off putting.

Taste – The taste is really rather good. Decent malt and citrus flavours so this one for me is better for its type than the Red. Some very nice hopped notes in there as well.

Mouthfeel – A little towards the thin side of things but not badly so. There is good tongue coating but it leaves the roof of the mouth dry which is an odd sensation but not unpleasant.

Overall – this one is very good and I actually prefer it to the Smithwicks Red Ale. It is also much stronger than the Red but does this without a heavy solvent overtone ruining the flavour.
