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.

Bottle from sypermarket in Letterfrack, Ireland. Very nice citrus smell. Taste is rather superficial and disappoints me. Ok beer.

ACD (676) - Dublin, IRELAND - JUN 10, 2012
Keg pint at Kennedy's, Dublin. Deep Golden colour with thin white head - thick lacing. Aroma of citrus, floral notes, hay, herbs, and slightly sweet malt. Taste is well balanced between the citrus hop bite, the floral notes, and the slightly sweet bready malt backbone. Nice crisp bitterness in the aftertaste; a very refreshing pale ale, glad to see its availability widening across Ireland.
