Bottle into An Brainblasta goblet in low altitude Galway, Ireland. Obtained at McCambridge's Galway.

A: A 1.5 finger head without cream and a bit thin. Hazy autumn orange-yellow colour.

Sm: Fresh barley and malt. Minimal.

T: Hoppy flavours mixed together indiscriminantly. Not fruity or spicy per se. A crisp, pleasant finish. It's balanced, albeit strangely built. Bittering hops are not at all prominent. Some fruit does come through but it isn't distinct.

Mf: Crisp and pleasant. Nicely coarse.

Dr: Pretty average for the price. Typical ABV. Surprisingly good for an organic ale (call me biased).

Hazy straw blonde with solid carpet of white foam. Straw, flower nectar, and peaches on the nose.
Tight grain and waxy melon with faint lemon peel and spice hops.
Fruity finish and tingly linger. Soft, light, thin.

On the light end of blond. Body is too weak for surprisingly high ABV and hops are barely there. Quencher, but the same can be done so much better.

A - Poured into a pint a hazy golden colour with a centimetre or so of white head that falls away fairly quickly.
S - Light floral and citrus notes. A bit of a sour touch.
T - Light floral & citrus also in the taste. Some vauge light malt. A lemon citric tartness is also in there.
M - Light bodied, medium carbonation.
D - OK for what it's trying to be but nothing to get excited about.
