COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is an exciting new style of beer that we call Irish Pale Ale. This delicious beer is pale in colour, has a full well balanced hop flavour and aroma, a good foamy head, a carbonation level similar to standard lagers. Now you can, of course, make it as complicated as you like by adding various chemicals and preservatives to the beer so that it ferments and matures faster, has a longer shelf life and is cheaper to produce. However, as a small independent craft brewery, we believe in using traditional techniques and think that only the four basic ingredients of beer should be used to produce this wonderful, thirst quenching, “magic potion”. All we want to do is produce a pure and natural beer for the Galway market. Nothing more.

Keg in the Vat Bar in Dublin. Straw coloured with a decent white foamy head. The taste is light spice and crisp citrus. Refreshing. OK.

kaser (4178) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 7, 2015
Golden pour at O'Niells in Dublin. White foamy head. Wheat German lager aroma. Taste is like Heineken I think. A little more hoppy. Ok beer

Peter_L (1134) - SWEDEN - AUG 4, 2015
Flaska inköpt i Dublin av kära frun. Gyllengul vätska med lågt skum. Brödig doft. Ren och neutral beska. Hade jag blundat hade jag misstagit mig för en lager men det påstås att denna skall vara en APA. Oavsett vilket är den ren och fri från felsmaker, vilket belastar plussidan.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Tempo. Thanks Tom L. Clear gold with a white ring. Sweet, a little fruity, old hops aroma, bitter taste, a little biscuity, old hops again. Light body, bitter and slightly malty finish.
