Keg& bottles, regular.Dry hopped for extra aroma, this pale ale has a light malt base with just the right mouthfeel to allow the hop character to predominate. Grapefruit like bitterness is full and lasting and is balanced by a zesty citrus burst of aroma from two late additions of cascade hops.

JorisPPattyn (9530) - Ursel, BELGIUM - JUN 2, 2016
Medium, light yellowish head over copper-golden beer, low carbonaion. Hops, slightly spicy and herbal. Sweet, pale & toasted malts; finish has the hops returning. Not really New World, but fruity all the same. Feels better than it looks, medium bodied at best. More than halfway decent.

imdownthepub (13390) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 2, 2016
Keg at Exils, Strasbourg, France. Hazy yellow gold with white head. This is pretty bland for an American Pale, sweet with a toffee, caramel background. Thin. Not great.

Grass, pencil shavings, caraway and thyme on the nose. Clear amber, medium yellow head, nice lacing. Honey, orange peel, dough. Medium body, moderate carbonation. Seems to have a herbal spiciness I often find in rye beers. Quite nice.

Pours golden clear with small head. Aroma is fresh grass, floral notes, citrus, some sour notes, apple. Taste is quite same, refreshing. After taste gives some strong citrus bitterness. Nice beer!

Nothing really interesting to say about. Some citrus in the aroma and flavour, but it’s just another bland beer from O’Hara’s.

Bottle acquired thhrough WolfCarnivals exit from work. Cheers pal. I enjoyed this out on the balcony on a hot day. Perfect conditions. It’s bitter and dry. Grapefruit notes. Tastes like an English PAle Ale as much as that’s a thing. Quite enjoyable.

hrabren (940) - Zagreb, CROATIA - APR 20, 2016
UPDATED: APR 20, 2016 I thought I rated this one. Bottle at Sheridan?s Irish Pub in Zagreb. Hazy golden, small white head. Elderberry, flowers, meadow. Sweet, light to medium body, medium to high carbonation. Some hoppiness in the finish, some malts also. Nice texture, but to carbonated. I remember this as a better beer while it was on tap.

JPDIPSO (5670) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - APR 12, 2016
Golden color with a light khaki colored head. Interesting scents, with toasted malt, light coffee. raw grains and buttered noodles. BB 28 June 2017, so freshness should not be an issue. Flavors of floor malt and raw grains. Generic bitterness, akin to sucking on an aspirin. Sooo, an Irish pale/amber ale. Whoop! Not!
