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.

Pours a golden color with small head. A pleasing aroma of caramel and hops. Taste is very bitter hops with no other balancing flavors or mouthfeel.

Had it at the Bull & Castle Gastro Pub, Dublin. This pale ale with nice malty tones really does have something to contribute to the pale ale constellation. It’s a brand new brewery, only around since the summer of 2006. I expect great things from them.

Keg from Tigh Neachtain’s, Galway. Clear golden colour with white head. High level of carbonation. Good hoppy flavour. Refreshing pint

Unfortunately there are few enough really good Irish brews. This is one of them and unusually it isn’t a stout. Quite low in alcohol with lots of (American? Cascade?) hop biterness this is a real treat.

nice amber look. strong fruity smell. a high fizz which helps mix the different flavors of hops, citrus fruit and straw. innitially a bit sweet but finishes with a solid bitter taste giving it a kick.

This is a great tasting pale ale. A lovely copper colour when pours with a balanced biscuity taste in the mouth and lovely hoppy finish on the palate

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

Had only on Draught, Light Pale colour, reasonable thick creamy hear, carbonation is at a decent level. A good hit of hops from it, and easy to drink if you’re sticking to one beer.

Excellent Irish Pale Ale . Quite new to the market but already a great success in Ireland . Tangy bitterness and understated biscuity flavours which perfectly compliment the floral aroma and citrusy, dry finish
