Dingle Tom Crean’s 18/35 1.3
Very mild aroma. Light golden appearance, head does not hold. Weak taste, no carbonation, flat. Somewhat sticky on the palate. Overall not to my taste.

Dingle Tom Crean’s 18/35 2.5
Pretty standard average pale lager. Lots of them out there. Clear golden color with a fine white head. Medium body and an average carbonation. Malty and herbal hoppy. Ok balance between sweetness and bitterness.
[Can from a duty free shop at Dublin Airport, Ireland]

Pour out of 12 oz bottle, clear golden pour with white head, aroma brought notes of grain, husk, slight corn into some hints of bread and dough. Taste was a mix of corn, cereal, hay, slight husk and dough, finishing dry.

Draft pour at the source. The beer is a clear gold with a white head of foam. The aroma is a little bready and grassy. Not a whole lot going on in the taste, but it is easy to drink. Medium carbonation and lighter body.

Dingle Tom Crean’s 18/35 4.1
Named after. Tom Crean, of Anascaul Co. Kerry, Ireland Tom was a real Antarctic hero of three expiditions with Scott and Shackelton. The beer is my favourite of the moment it is smooth, crisp and easy on the stomach, unlike many of the mainstream lagers. It gets my juices flowing!

Almost no aroma. Yellow as urine. Smooth texture and super drinkable but it's like drinking water.

Draught at brewpub in Dingle. Pours a light gold with a solid creamy white head. The nose is malty and grainy with light floral hop notes and a bit of citrus fruit. Very simple and basic with light grain and cereal notes, citrus and floral hops. Mildly bitter finish.

Dingle Tom Crean’s 18/35 3
A decent but not outstanding beer from Dingle in Ireland. The foam is flakey and the first taste, while fresh and slightly herbal, has little carbonation and the body and aftertaste are not strong. Not a bad beer but nothing special.

There’s a hint of honey or something in it. It’s solid and you could probably drink quite a few before you got sick of it. Unlike other beers you’ll get sick from it before you get sick of it. Lovely draught served in Fitzsimons in Dublin. Ironically, the Crean’s I had in Killarney wasn’t that good. Overall - lovely aroma, balance, taste and aftertaste (something some of the other microbrews lack).

Dingle Tom Crean’s 18/35 2.8
33cl bottle at 38,000 feet (i.e., best option on a plane). Golden with white head. Aroma of light grassy malt. Standard light lager with ’some’ more malty notes in the middle. Minimal hop presence, just enough to take the edge off the light maltyness. Not bad for a session lager, but not huge on flavor. Extra points for being from Dingle.

Dingle Tom Crean’s 18/35 2.7
Bottle from Old Stand, Mullingar [040614] 4.2% bottle
Golden blonde, slight haze, thin white head, slight lacing
Aroma - almost noting, slight pale malt, but no nasty stuff
Taste - sweet pale malt,soft cereal, slight bitter hop, touch of honey, mainly light pale sweet malt, very little hops, not much going on
Palate - soft carb, light body, fairly sweet. Finish as main flavour
Overall - Very clean, soft, pale malt lager, not much hop, easy going, no metallic crap or chemical tasting junk in here - as a simple lager it’s not bad at all, considerably better than the usual macro lager shite

As Tom Crean’s Lager. Simplistic pilsner malts, as expected, with some light herbal notes perhaps. Pleasant surprise they actually list the hop variety (Saaz) on the can, but that doesn’t change the generic appeal. The taste is bubbly and bland, perhaps the lightest of acidity over your standard European mass lager. (33cl can on board of Aer Lingus flight to New York)

Not much to this. Bread, malts, apples. Flavour is cider notes but not much else to it. It not great really.

Just a boring regular pale lager. It’s not bad or anything, just not interesting at all.

Tap in Dingle. Pale yellow colour with white head. Faintly sweet and bready aroma. Taste is slightly malty, bready, some hops, but quite faint. Light and refreshing. Good for the style.

On tap @ Murray´s at O´Connell Str, Dublin. Pours golden with a white soon disappearing head. It´s impossible to call this beer disgusting. I don´t call water disgusting. Tasteless and drinkable are better words for this beer and water. And dull. Dull is the right word.

Dingle Tom Crean’s 18/35 3.1
Draught at Sober Lane with my dinner. Pours a clear bubbly gold with a lasting white head. Looks like a great lager. Aroma is kind of off-putting - buttery popcorn, caramel and cidery apple notes. Taste is much better - malty sweetness, very light bitterness and a vague sour hint. Very moist palate and a good lively carbonation. Quite a decent lager, but still nowhere near as interesting as what the other new Irish breweries are producing.

On tap @ Murphy’s Bar, Killarney. This is an attempt to wean the Great Irish Public off the mass produced lagers that are available everywhere. It’s a good start. I’d say it’s golden in colour rather than pale. Moderately sweet. No issues with drinking this. A good start - maybe other styles will follow?

330ml bottle (Tom Creans Irish Lager). Pours clear gold, a touch watery looking. Not much head. Malt and a little citrus on the nose. Not too thin in the middle. A touch of butter in the finish. Its a pale lager so not going to be mindblowing, but a decent representative of the style.

Dingle Tom Crean’s 18/35 3.1
33cl bottle. Pours golden with thin but lasting white head. Aroma is grain, slight herb, grass - fairly muted. Taste is decent, grainy notes, biscuit, herbs, light citrus note. Almost Creamy nature to it - high level of carbonation but suits well. Light bitterness in the aftertaste. A bit limp, but quite refreshing nevertheless.

Aroma has nice fruit and malt notes that continue through the flavor. Nice body and good carbonation makes for a great overall mouthfeel. Really nicely done.
