General Thoughts:
Moonraker is a smooth beer, bitter in taste and leaves a bitter after taste. There is a slight sweetness very slight though just taking the edge off. This is a surprising beer as its not overpowering in the slightest considering its strength. The biggest let down for me was the flavour of this beer. I was expecting a beer with a lot more flavour than it actually had. I would recommend this beer as its an easy drinking beer, however it doesn't really stand out for me.

Price:
€2.79 ( Based on Dublin Tesco 02/11/2012)
