A refreshing blonde ale generously hopped to give bitterness and aroma that packs a punch. Great with spicy food.

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.

ciaranc (1102) - Dublin, IRELAND - FEB 14, 2013
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

Pours a hazy orange with a thickish head. Light aroma common to blondes but lighter. Flavor is a bit sour but not really bad.

Sizzler80 (502) - Dublin, IRELAND - MAY 4, 2012
Dark amber, vibrant and cloudy pour with flecks of yeast and off-white cap and lacing. Aromas of hops, barley, wet grass, lemon, pine and caramel. Creamy, tart and alive on initial sip. The citrus and hops dominate on, quite hoppy. A spicy warmth lingers around for a few moments. The sweetness from the fruit and caramel are present but subdued. Great stuff! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
