Mark, owner of the Clanconnel Brewery, send me over a bottle of his first beer "Weavers Gold". Poured into a glas the beer comes with a strong foam and its head retention is stable for a long time. Its colour lives up to its name; it's golden. The smell is estery, fruity (mainly apple and citrus), floral and a little bit oily. Overall said: the smell of honey. Its mouthfeel is astringent and after some time dry. The beer is well balanced, has a good body and a perfect tingle. The bitterness is perfect for an ale and the bitterness quality is superb. It is one of those beers you might want to drink a little bit more than usual.
The beer was poured from a bottle.
