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.

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!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap in Bar 44, Swords, Co. Dublin Creamy amber pour with a solid white head. All the aromas of a great IPA there. Orange, caramel, hay, coriander and of course hops. Silky smooth on the palate with all of the above quite pronounced. The hoppy bitterness is not over powering at all. A great balance of flavours. Hurrah for Irish craft beer in Swords, long may it continue.
