Served on-draught into a Bay Brewery pint glass in the Oslo brewpub, Salthill, Ireland. Reviewed from notes.
A: Pours a two finger head of nice cream and fair thickness. Gold colour. Very appealing. Appears alive; perhaps yeasty.
Sm: Cream, barley, a bit of smoke actually (?), and hops. A moderate strength scent.
T: Wonderfully balanced, with a hoppy fresh body and marvelous cream on the finish. The cream is handled very well, curtailing rather than dying. Built well for the style. I'm glad it's very commonly available.
Mf: Wonderfully creamy and smooth. Smack-your-lips crisp.
Dr: Conceals its mouthfeel very well. A delightful beer, but not worth seven quid (probably a result of its being offered in Salthill).
Serving type: on-tap

While I haven't tried nearly all the beers of this style, I can't imagine them being much better than this one. To me this beer has a near ideal balance of sweetness, light hop bitterness, esters, & spiciness flavor. The smell is banana, clove, & bubblegum while the appearance is a clear, medium gold. I must admit that I find this beer to be better than most that have reviewed it, but that is OK as it is staple in my refrigerator.
