Draught at the Dice Bar. Not sure why this is classified as an IPA. Deep red with a medium head, good lacing. Aroma is light malt. Flavour is gentle red ale, a little treacle, soft malt finish. Easy drinking.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Keg dispense at Dice Bar, Dublin. Pours a copper red colour with a decent enough head, lacing is light throughout. Holy Jesus this smells poor - granny’s over-boiled some veggies and left them out there on the stove to ripen...and a bit of caramel. Christ. Taste doesn’t get much better - stewed veggies, caramel malt, slight herb, cardboard. Aftertaste is swift (thankfully) with a slight herby hop flavour lingering alongside a touch of caramel and a load of weird off-flavours. Irish micro-brewing at its very worst (i’m not too fond of this style at its very best to be fair); there’s a reason this is only available in one location in the city, do yourself a favour and buy a bag of chips instead.

This brewery is alive again and calling itself Big Hand Brewery and only brews for Dice Bar. Appearance: Ruby red, small white head. Aroma: turnips, malt, plastic, quite a ’home brew’ aroma. Not great. A little sad that I have a whole pint. Flavour: Nutty, cabbage, lots of caramel, weird, almost cake like. I don’t know. Odd.
