COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Bottle. Golden color. Slightly herbal grass,m lemon and grapefruit in the aroma. Firm earthy herbal citric grassy hopbitter flavor, that keeps lingering in the aftertaste, Maybe a bit thin, but dry and enjoyable.

Liamrua (26) - Waterford, IRELAND - JAN 18, 2014
.5l bottle from The Wine Centre. Lightly chilled which seemed to be just right. Light golden colour. Creamy head with light lacing. Hoppy aroma with a citrus finish. A very balanced taste of light grass and citrus with a lovely balanced hoppiness. Light carbonation with a lingering balanced hoppiness. A very impressive beer with perfectly balanced hops.

Pours a golden colour with an off-white head. Aroma is malt, fruit such as grapefruit, some grass and hops. Taste is mild sweet fruit leading to a nicely balanced bitter finish. Decent stuff.

O’Hara’s generally makes decent beer, but this one is definitely not amongst my favourites. It pours with a light ruby color and a very generous creamy head. The aroma is very nice - sweet and fruity, citrusy hops. I like it. The creamy body taste extra bitter and extremelly hopped which is not really what I like. I’ll keep away from this one.
