Best Irish craft beer currently around! Tried the cask, even better in its aroma.

DSG (8324) - Tel Aviv, - MAY 24, 2015
Can sample at a tasting at troubles’s place. Thanks Tom L. Golden with a white head. Awful aroma of butter and creamed corn. Sweetish flavor with diacetyl, corn, and a drier unpleasant bitterish finish. Diacetyl mouthfeel. Awful.

teorn88 (3583) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 17, 2015
Keg at Bulls and Castle, Dublin. I pours a clean amber color with a small tan head. Aroma is balanced with caramel malts and light grassy and piny hops. Taste is again lightly caramel and sweet, and lightly bitter, grassy and leafy, with some pine notes. Light to medium bodied with ok carbonation. Overall, quite bland hopping on this one.

Pours an amber colour with a small white head, has floral, fruity notes in the aroma. Taste wise its nearly balanced but its slightly on the hoppy side, there is also a sweetness that comes through but the finish is dry and bitter. I like this beer, i have to say!

Draught. Poured a nice golden colour with thick head. Some easy floral hop aroma. Gentle taste. An intro to craft beer. Decent.

Pint på porterhouse Dublin. Väldigt trevlig öl. Kanske gjorde sällskapet den ännu bättre än vad den är!

A draft pour at the rooftop garden at the REG in Waterford, Ireland. The beer is clear yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. In the pint glass it was a gold amber with an off-white head and really nice lacing. Nose is floral, citrus and grassy hops. Medium body and smooth mouothfeel. The flavor show lots of hops and there is some light fruit. Finish is fruit and bitterness. Really easy to drink and refreshing as all get out.

Draught, smallish head, clear and just a touch deep orange colour, aroma of lemon sherbet, peach and aloysia, flavour of under ripe banana, strawberry, sponge cake and some spiciness, medium herbal bitterness. citrus aftertaste. Nice and interesting.

dublin1978 (1) - IRELAND - AUG 8, 2014 does not count
The beer is clear yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high creamy off white head that died down and left a collar around the edge, patches of bubbles on the surface, and lots of lacing down the sides of the glass Similar to the smell, the taste has flavors of citrusy and grassy hops along with a light amount of associated bitterness. This beer is easy to drink. Although it is mostly dominated by hop flavors, there isn’t too much in the way of bitternes
