Pale and fizzy. Had this on Draft in Liverpool. Went to Dingle soon after. Should have waited to have it there. Oh well

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A decent but not outstanding beer from Dingle in Ireland. The foam is flakey and the first taste, while fresh and slightly herbal, has little carbonation and the body and aftertaste are not strong. Not a bad beer but nothing special.

4.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
There’s a hint of honey or something in it. It’s solid and you could probably drink quite a few before you got sick of it. Unlike other beers you’ll get sick from it before you get sick of it. Lovely draught served in Fitzsimons in Dublin. Ironically, the Crean’s I had in Killarney wasn’t that good. Overall - lovely aroma, balance, taste and aftertaste (something some of the other microbrews lack).

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught, small stable creamy head bubbly head, a little deep clear gold colour, malty candy aroma with herbal notes, candy fruity flavour, with a light but noticable herbal bitterness, medium body. Nice lager.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
33cl bottle at 38,000 feet (i.e., best option on a plane). Golden with white head. Aroma of light grassy malt. Standard light lager with ’some’ more malty notes in the middle. Minimal hop presence, just enough to take the edge off the light maltyness. Not bad for a session lager, but not huge on flavor. Extra points for being from Dingle.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Belle couleur doree et mousse fine, arome de cereale pas de houblon. Bouche douce maltée pas d’amertume. Une lager bien faite et sans pretention.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
Geruch und Geschmack extrem schwach ausgeprägt, aber sehr angenehm. Malzig, keine Bittere. Aufgrund der starken Wässrigkeit aber nicht besonders.

Bottle from Old Stand, Mullingar  4.2% bottle
Golden blonde, slight haze, thin white head, slight lacing
Aroma - almost noting, slight pale malt, but no nasty stuff
Taste - sweet pale malt,soft cereal, slight bitter hop, touch of honey, mainly light pale sweet malt, very little hops, not much going on
Palate - soft carb, light body, fairly sweet. Finish as main flavour
Overall - Very clean, soft, pale malt lager, not much hop, easy going, no metallic crap or chemical tasting junk in here - as a simple lager it’s not bad at all, considerably better than the usual macro lager shite
