3.61/5 rDev +1.7%
Bottle at The Magpie Inn, Dalkey, Ireland
A: The beer is hazy amber in color and has a slight amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a thin white head that died down, leaving patches of bubbles on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass. The head eventually completely faded away.
S: Light to moderate aromas of floral hops are present in the nose along with hints of pale malts.
T: The taste has flavors of pale malts along with strong notes of floral hops, the latter of which contribute a light amount of bitterness.
M: It feels a bit shy of being medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: The taste has a nice mix of malts and hops. It is easy to drink and not very strong, which would make it good to pair with a meal.

Strawberry blonde with a rose-tinted cream head that's thick and steady.
Toasted granola and spiced orange on the nose.
Orange marmalade on whole wheat toast with surprising tangerine notes to end.
Ginger snap finish and lingering bitter bite.
Light, slightly oily, creamy, crisp.
At first I couldn't see where a self-proclaimed bitter with English hops would be a summer seasonal - why not a blonde ale with American hops? But Challenger is like a more citrussy EKG, and there's such a lightness of touch in the mouthfeel that this does what it set out to do.
More impressive results from maybe the most technically proficient of the new Irish micros.
