3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Surprisingly good little session brew. The pour is a light amber with a thin horrible looking head with some nice lacing rings. The nose has mild caramel, toasty and nutty malts with a mild hop note. The first sip has nutty and caramel malt sweetness and a few hop notes towards the finish. Well balanced and better than I expected overall.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear red copper, foamy off white head settles and lasts. Aroma of grassy piney hops and faint caramel malt. Surprisingly pine citrus hop forward taste, mildly sweet malts take a backseat. Becomes a bit thin and watery halfway through. Softly carbed, medium-light bodied, medium hopped. Flattens out a bit. Lightly bitter dry finish. NFL (Not For Lagerboys)

I love Granville Island - in my opinion, they make some of the tastiest beers in BC. But this particular entry is insulting to Irish beer. Yuck.
No beer in Ireland that I have ever had has the amount of hops that this thing does; on the contrary, Irish beers are known for their maltiness. This tastes like some trendy Phillips beer - jacked up with as much hops as can be stuffed into the bottle, while still looking like a Smithwick’s. A terrible beer, nothing like a real Irish red ale.
