On cask. Appearance: golden orange. Small white head. Aroma: grassy, almost fishy aroma, a lot of malt with an odd meat like aroma. Flavour: bitter, super light mouthfeel, quite bitter with a long grassy finish. Very odd.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at Franciscan Well. Pours a nice hazy golden, with a pillowy white head. Aroma is caramel, grass, floral citrus and just a little bit of soap. Light nutty sweetness, medium bitterness. Citrus dry hop finish which isnít overbearing. Lively carbonation. This is a fine beer, and thereís nothing wrong with it, per se, but itís just that bit underwhelming, much like the rest of the Wellís regulars.

On tap at a beer festival in Dublin. English American style IPA. Nice. I will try it again. But I still recommend it

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample at the brewpub. This beer is a clear amber-orange color with a medium thin off-white head that dissipates steadily to an outer ring. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of hops and citrus. Light-bodied with flavors of grassy hops, citrus and malt. The finish is mildly bitter with a lingering citusy hops aftertaste. Decent overall.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On cask @ Brew Dock in Dublin City.
Copper smooth pour, good white head and lace. Fruity, citrus, hops, malt, floral. Bitter and slightly dry on initial sip. Hint of caramel sweetness. Had it before the Stone Roses gig so extra Brucie bonus points for that.
Refreshing and very thirst quenching

A marked improvement from when I had this last time. Barman said they have used different malts and will do going forward. this is well balanced with a hoppy after taste that makes you want more. I would say the best Irish pale ale on the market at the moment. their beers in general seem to have increased in flavour. The barman also told me the owner is pushing for tastes to be challanged as more people are switching towards craft beer. Its great to hear . It is a little dark for a pale ale but that would be its only flaw in my opinion

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask pint (had it from the keg too). Golden/straw colour with decent white head, medium carbonation. Aroma of slight citrus, bit peppery, but nothing to write home about. Taste of citrus first of all, but leads to a very odd unbalanced malt/hop profile that doesnít hit the palate too well - very rough mouthfeel. Not too impressed to be honest, much better Irish pale ales to be had.
