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.

On tap at O’Flaherty’s in Dingle. Pours a clear amber with a nice-sized head. The bear has decent body and a mildly hoppy flavor. Clean and crisp on the tongue.

330ml bottle (Tom Creans Irish Lager). Pours clear gold, a touch watery looking. Not much head. Malt and a little citrus on the nose. Not too thin in the middle. A touch of butter in the finish. Its a pale lager so not going to be mindblowing, but a decent representative of the style.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
12oz bottle poured into a tumbler.
Clear gold color, small white head.
Bready and grainy nose, with faint floral hops and grass.
Plain malt flavors, lo bitterness, grains, some vegetal notes.
Light body, somewhat dry, OK for style but nothing much beyond that.

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
33cl bottle. Pours golden with thin but lasting white head. Aroma is grain, slight herb, grass - fairly muted. Taste is decent, grainy notes, biscuit, herbs, light citrus note. Almost Creamy nature to it - high level of carbonation but suits well. Light bitterness in the aftertaste. A bit limp, but quite refreshing nevertheless.

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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap in John Benny's, Dingle.
Dark golden lively pour with a decent white head. Aromas of hops, grain, citrus, silage. Very refreshing and flavoursome. Good carbonation. Great session beer if you're in Dingle.

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.

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?

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma has nice fruit and malt notes that continue through the flavor. Nice body and good carbonation makes for a great overall mouthfeel. Really nicely done.
