12oz bottle poured into a tumbler.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Just a boring regular pale lager. It’s not bad or anything, just not interesting at all.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap in Dingle. Pale yellow colour with white head. Faintly sweet and bready aroma. Taste is slightly malty, bready, some hops, but quite faint. Light and refreshing. Good for the style.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
On tap @ Murray´s at O´Connell Str, Dublin. Pours golden with a white soon disappearing head. It´s impossible to call this beer disgusting. I don´t call water disgusting. Tasteless and drinkable are better words for this beer and water. And dull. Dull is the right word.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught at Sober Lane with my dinner. Pours a clear bubbly gold with a lasting white head. Looks like a great lager. Aroma is kind of off-putting - buttery popcorn, caramel and cidery apple notes. Taste is much better - malty sweetness, very light bitterness and a vague sour hint. Very moist palate and a good lively carbonation. Quite a decent lager, but still nowhere near as interesting as what the other new Irish breweries are producing.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Orange gold with a minimal head. Aroma is musty sweet. Flavour is sweet bread, a little her and spice. Finish is dry.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap @ Murphy’s Bar, Killarney. This is an attempt to wean the Great Irish Public off the mass produced lagers that are available everywhere. It’s a good start. I’d say it’s golden in colour rather than pale. Moderately sweet. No issues with drinking this. A good start - maybe other styles will follow?
