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 beer was tasted at the Brauhaus Graf Beust in Essen, Germany. It was served in a 0.3 liter Pilsen glas. The foam was nice and the color, it was a fitlered beer, was perfect gold. The first smell I got was full of Diacetyl. The taste was very buttery.
