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

Vir4030 (496) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 6, 2012
On tap at Magpie’s in Dalkey, Dublin. Pours a clear copper with a great head. Aroma and flavor match, mildish but with this really great grassy dry bite.

imdownthepub (9991) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 17, 2012
Cask conditioned at The Anchor, Birmingham. Gold with white head. This is a sharp, dry, heavily hopped beer. There is a good crisp biscuity body, light with a baked bread note. This carries a spicy, peppery hop flavour, quite intense and bitter. Really very good.

This is a pretty great refreshing, lightly coloured, easy to drink Irish pale ale, It has just enough hops to keep you hooked. Well worth a try if you can find it on tap because its not in bottles yet!

omhper (19214) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - APR 14, 2011
Draught at Bull & Castle, Dublin. Clear golden, creamy head. Rich grapefruity hop aroma. Mid dry with clean rounded mouthfeel. Well hopped and light bodied with balanced bitterness. An elegant, really enjoyable thirst quencher.

culchiem (2413) - Berlin, GERMANY - APR 2, 2013
Cask in Bull & Castle. Clear orange amber with a thin head, good lacing. Aroma is light fruit. Flavour is grainy to start with leading to an intense and long lasting bitter hop finish. Palate is dry

beerfest5 (1136) - Dublin, IRELAND - APR 9, 2014
on draft at B&C. Cloudy bright gold in color, large white head that dissipated fairly quick and left nice lacing on the glass. Big floral hop notes in the aroma with some cereal, bready malts. Flavor is bitter and bright floral and fruity hops, some cheerio cereal flavor in the back end. Lovely full finish.
