50cl bottle at home. Pours cloudy marmalade orange. Lots of sediment. Head dissipates to nothing. Sour bread aroma. Flavour is sour, bitter, pine, spruce, toast. Medium bodied rounded with nice medium bitterness. This is another good beer from Dungarvan.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Beautiful huge white head, very pleasant aroma of bubblegum and citrus, refreshing bitter taste with a more bitter aftertaste. Very easy drinking and well balanced. Actually it’s an IPA. I definitely guess it’s dry hopped.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
It smelled as an American pale ale and the taste is almost perfect (although a little bitter too much in the end). I am happily surprised.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Drinks like an ESB. Nicely hopped. Some fruity esters and maltiness in the aroma as well as very low level diacetyl. Aggressively hopped in the bittering range. Only serious flaw is chill has and could be just a little more malty to balance the hoppiness.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Amber gold pour, big foamy white head which lasts. Hay and grass in the aroma with a few notes of sweet sugary fruits. No sweetness in the flavour, quite a sour maltiness with hops forward. Light bodied any strongly carbonated. Not bad.

Mainly bottle - on draught a couple of time at Against the Grain. Enjoyable fresh tasting beer. Like any craft brewing in Ireland, needs constructive criticism. We are getting there and this is a creditable effort. I’d have no problem ordering it when available - I was sorry to leave AtG -but my colleague insisted on hitting the Bull and Castle :)

UPDATED: JUN 14, 2015 Cask - The Magpie, Dalkey. A triumph - an Irish ale that?s available on hand pump and tastes good. Bottled version not as good - but we need to encourage breweries like Dungarvan to keep experimenting. Recommended

Beverina, con note floreali e finale leggermente amaro....da bere una pinta dietro l’altra..anche se non indimenticabile
