Une autre très bonne bière de Kinnegar
J'aime Letterkenny parce que je peux boire autre chose que de la Guinness. Cette bière ambrée est encore une fois crémeuse et onctueuse avec une touche caramélisée délicieuse.

500ml bottle from Paul's Off-License, Donegal Town (€3.25):
Quite a disappointing offering from Kinnegar, especially after how much I enjoyed their Crossroads IPA but this one was far too subdued & light, particularly with the nose which was bordering on weak at points. Things improved slightly come the taste with more of the bitter malts & earthy hops coming through alongside some biscuit flavours but it's not a classic & I can't imagine it's one that I'd pick up again either.

Hazy Amber color with modest head. Nice malts smell to nose with hint of spice. Modest hops are balanced with the malts for a nice feel; does not linger on the palate.

Poured from a cask and was a hazy orange in colour.

Smelled of sweet cereal malts with a hint of spicy hops.

Very mild in flavour with little to no carbonation. Faint bread-malts and not much else to it. Very timid for a beer.

Would I buy it again? Meh.
