From cervezasespeciales. In Teku glass. Watching Sons of Anarchy 2x11. Great aroma, taste and feel. Very refreshing.

Super tasting beer with hints of the pine needles and ginger. Lots of frothy head and lace. Incredibly easy drinking. Bit of alcohol warmth towards the end of the finish. Fab brew.

Took a shot in the dark on this. I hadn't heard of it before. I bought it in Carry Out Off Licence, Carlow, Ireland. Expensive here, but most beers are! 4.55€

Smooth and balanced mouthfeel, just right. A decent amount of citrus hop bitterness balanced well with the plum sweetess. Almost tastes like homemade lemonade, only tons better! Aftertaste is sweet plum with a subtle and balanced bitterness.

The packaging, although fun and Christmassy, is not to my taste, but for me it's all about the beer, which is fantastic.
