COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It delivers a refreshing crisp smack around the gills. It pours a pale golden colour and the malty sweetness is well balanced by the Chinook and Centennial hops. Goes well with fish, chicken or anything off the barbeque

(33 cl bottle from Cork supermarket; BBD: December 24th 2014) Pours a clear golden with rich, white head and good carbonation. Decent retention and beautiful lace. Aroma is grainy with a hint of herbal hops. Oily texture, medium to light body and a mildly sweet finish. Flavour is well balanced, a bit light but decently drinkable and refreshing.

triskaideka (127) - Killarney, IRELAND - MAY 26, 2014
Pint on draught - Fitzpatrick’s in Doolin Co.Clare. Poured golden/amber wth white head. You get the expected hoppy aromas of citrus, and grapefruit. Taste is crisp with long hoppy bitterness following through. Quite highly carbonated. I liked it.

reebtogi (4039) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - APR 10, 2014
330ml bottle pours a slightly hazy golden color with a small white head that leaves only a few spots of lacing on the glass. Aroma is light fruits and grains with hints of grass. Taste is a light fruity and grainy malt sweetness with a mild grapefruit and grassy hop bitterness. Light bodied with decent carbonation. A pretty good pale ale which is easy to drink and quite refreshing.

JanLaursen (2985) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 23, 2014
Fra fad. Tåget gylden, lavt hvidt skum. Frisk, sexy og humlet næse. US-humler. Citrus, fedtede fyrnåle og en lille smule sarmsved. Mild karamel i malten, men der er humlen, der styrer. Slutter med dejlige tørre harpiks-noter. Farlig høj drinkabillity.

sonrvous (1) - Alberta, CANADA - MAR 21, 2014 does not count
My first micro brew from Ireland. These are hard to come by here. It was a crisp with grapefruit, orange, orange peel with subtle floral notes. Medium body and exactly what I was looking for. It drank very well!

ruigo (1005) - PORTUGAL - MAR 11, 2014
33cl bottle from Auchan (Luxembourg). Pours an almost clear golden colour with a thin off-white head. Aroma is malty, fruity, caramel and lightly spicy. Average to soft carbonation and light to medium body. Taste is really bitter at start with some sweet notes and a long bitter and dry finish. Overall, a nice beer but with not much of a taste and a bit unbalanced. I was expecting more.
