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

johndoughty (4234) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 28, 2013
Bottle while on holiday in County Cork ( a wonderful place ) Golden and clear with a small head. Slightly hoppy but nothing really distinctive. Having said that it was a pleasure to support a craft brewery in ireland. Long may they continue to grow.

Sizzler80 (501) - 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.
