Draft at airport bar. Have had this often enough before, but not since I started rating. This is definitely not an American type lager, its color is noticeably darker than that, and will already mark you as someone who knows the difference between horse-p--- and beer. Good taste is there, pleasing beery aroma and even some hop flavor. Above average.

Aroma of honey and grains. Medium mouth feel. Flavors of light toffee, toast, and malts. Would be good as a black and lager with Guinness...of course!

Pours a clear golden color. Pretty tall head, white and short lived. Little lacing. Nothing extraordinary.

Aroma is bready and also hoppy. A little more character than normal for a lager.

Taste is bready and hoppy. A little more bold than normal for a lager. A little more bitter. It has grassy hops that are a little more prominent than most. I taste medium roasted malts. Itís has a little more character than most lagers.

Mouthfeel is light. Lighter than what I expected. It finishes clean and dry. Itís almost like drinking water. Odd, I can taste the malts in my sinuses. Iím not sure why Iím tasting that, but it gives me a perspective I didnít have before.

Overall, itís good. Itís better than you Budweiser, your Coors, your whatever. More character, more flavor, and more pricey. But itís still a solid lager, and I would recommend trying it if you havenít.

I remember I used to drink this beer when I was student. It was £5 for 8 cans(?) I think it was. This was my first and possibly the last Irish lager I have ever tried. It was a basic everyday lager. Drinkable considering the price.
