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

Sizzler80 (447) - Dublin, IRELAND - AUG 4, 2013
Golden, cloudy pour with a frothy white head. Subdued orange, grapefruit, grass, pine, sherbet. Slightly dry with good carbonation. Very refreshing. There are a lot better pales available but great to see a new Irish craft brewery and good luck to them. If I was in a pub with this on tap I’d drink it for sure.

ACD (625) - Dublin, IRELAND - AUG 3, 2013
33cl bottle. Light watery yellow. Lemon in the aroma - toilet duck style lemon - some herbs, cardboard. Odd cardboard off notes in the taste, astringent citrus, some herbs. Not good, not good at all. Hopefully this is a bottle-specific thing - will revisit on keg when I can.

On tap at Bowes of Fleet Street, Dublin. Light and slightly hazy orange with decent white head. Grapefruit, orange, light zesty Citrus notes & slightly sweet malt are on the nose; taste is well balanced with a nice citrus zing, light pine and some light orange-y flavours; touch of caramel and biscuit to balance it out. Fairly refreshing pine/citric bitterness in the finish; a very decent APA, easy drinking - had a few dodgy bottles but it has been reliable on tap over recent months.

kiwianer (3333) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 9, 2013
The head is ok, the body red, orange, a bit cloudy. It smells malty, interesting, hoppy, malty. The taste is a bit bitter, fruity-hoppy, berry, bit malty. Nice. 12/11/12/12/-/12

Creedence (282) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 26, 2013
Draught at Bierhaus. Pours a nice hazy golden colour with a medium white froth that lasts. Nose of citrus, freshly cut grass with a floral hint - very appetizing. Taste is a lightly balanced malty sweetness to begin with followed by a a big hoppy bitter kick. Nice lively carbonation yet maintains a smooth mouthfeel. A very good Irish attempt at an APA.

niquillis (812) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 9, 2013
330ml bottle. The worlds liveliest head! An average golden beer, not very moreish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
