A pale amber beer, hopped exclusively with lots of New Zealand varieties. An antipodean extravaganza, lightly carbonated with a soft bitterness from a combination of Southern Cross and Pacifica, leading into tropical fruit flavours of pineapple and mango, with the wonderful addition of grapes from Nelson Sauvin hops – a delightful spring beer! ABV : 4.8% Available in : Keg, cask

onlyrocknroll (379) - Antwerp, - JUL 20, 2012
A little gentler on the hops and fruitier than some if it’s new-generation Irish cousins, but it still packs a little kick. Caramel, soft fruit and spruce aroma. Fairly sweet flavour, more fruit, caramel and a restrained bitterness. Pretty tasty.

Deu (946) - Nantes, FRANCE - MAR 14, 2015
Tasting tray in Dublin. Amber with white head. Fuller malt notes for this beer, but still carrying a good, healthy, hop wallop. Tropical fruits to the fore, a bit like a tropical fruit punch. Some sweetness, lasting on the palate. Decent.

a quite pleasant amber ale - nutty flavors with mild hops. One of the better Irish craft beers
