Nice refined hops with a malty taste.

The original craft beer: a pint bottle of guinness.
The Barmaid in the Carrick Hotel even asked if I wanted one from the cooler or from the shelf.
The region notes are mildly interesting though as Ernie himself notes any aspiring buff should get themselves a decent Wine Atlas / Encyclopaedia.
A wine Journo’s lot must be a happy one. Taste 124 wines averaging €27.58 a bottle and give a cursory opinion validated by a mate. Cost-wise It’s no wonder they all score 8 out of 10 or better.
Do the Sunday Times really believe their average reader punts €28 a bottle every week? Get a grip Ernie.
Because The Harbour Bar and all the other restaurants in Portrush were closed for the season – or maybe just because it was a Monday evening in September – we chose The Tides from Tripadvisor and also for the views. They could take us as long as we made it by 8pm, which we did.
I asked for an ale and was offered this.
The packaging is strong but the liquid was unremarkable, slightly hoppy, slightly fruity.
Went well with the workmanlike Moules and Frites.
