3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Courtesy of cbkschubert via trade. The aroma is very strange. I smell gravy, light caramel, and some citrus hops. It pours a hazy orange with a small soapy white head. The flavor starts with caramel and toffee. There are hints of orange in the background. It finishes with a dose of oxidized citrus hops.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 oz bomber: via trade with Holdenn "thanks!". Slightly fruity aroma some definite hop characteristics(no the medium side of hoppiness), somewhat of a wheat scent to this brew. a small aroma of cinnamon, and a light roasted caramel goodness. Poured a cloudy orangish/amber with a absolutely immense fluffy white head that diminished slowly. Taste is medium bodied, with a fruity and medium hoppiness to it. Some caramel and roasted nut notes with a light acidity. palate is mildly bitter on the lips with a minimal caramel overtone that lasts for quite a while. Overall, Itís a good Pale Ale. Itís not the best but pretty good.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22oz bomber, no date. Pours a slightly hazy honey orange with a 4+ finger head--which I believe is making a mound over the height of the glass. Aroma has some earthy and citrusy hops with some dirt and caramel malts. It has a bit of an English bitter aroma to it. I donít have the patience to wait for the head to die down, so Iíll start by eating it (the head). The closest thing this beer reminds me of in recent memory is Coniston Bluebird Bitter--at least the taste of the head. Mainly because the head tastes a little like eating dirt and straight bitterness. Some citrus does make an appearance.Dry lingering bitter finish. Surprisingly from all that head the carbonation doesnít suffer too much--itís moderate but a tad too sharp with a light to medium body. Hopefully all of the Moylanís I received from IrishBoy will be better than this one I bought.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap at Barclayís in Oakland. Body of a pale ale, hopped more like an American IPA without going overboard. slightly musty hop aroma that reminds me of moonlightís twist of fate. extremely unique hop flavor, a sharp/floral/vegetal bitterness combination that reminds me of curry leaves. good malt backbone without giving me the impression that the finishing gravity was overly high. nice low alcohol makes it easy to enjoy a few pints. Excellent pale ale. Thanks James.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Partly cloudy orange-copper body with a short-lived white head. Some light watered down caramel in a watery thin body. Some fruity/grassy hops supply a welcomed light to medium bitterness. Hard to describe anymore than this. Competently put together but ultimately generic session beer. Named in the honour of their Tipperary County founding fathers, may they be remembered longer than this forgettable beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Medium hazy amber pour. Rather shy nose proposes soft honeyed biscuitiness that backs the mostly crisp, spicy, herbal and citrusy hops. Green profile, rather sweet, though the bitterness eventually comes out decently and without procuring no abrasiveness. Remains quite spicy and dry. Nice little pale ale in the rules of the art and adding little touches here and there.
