COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ireland’s most well travelled ale; the elusive Barrelhead Pale Ale is now brewed at the Sweetman brewery at Burgh Quay. Unfiltered and enthusiastically dry-hopped, the pale amber hue belies a firm body that is packed full of flavour. This is what craft beer is all about.

Gangstergafje (1307) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - APR 29, 2015
Beautiful red color and a little creamy foam layer. The smell is is bitter and has not very strong but delicious citrusy hop flavors. The beer tastes great. Strong bitterness and those beautiful citrusy hop aroma’s. The bitterness is in balance with s natural sweetness. The beer has in the distance a hint of lemon diet coke. Very fruity and tasteful.

Old rating from 12/8/14, on draft, pours a murky orange into the shaker, huge rich aroma of citrus and tropical fruit, lovely. Taste is surprisingly full compared to most pale’s, full chewy sticky mouthfeel, I wouldn’t say this one is refreshing due to the mouthfeel, but it is one of the better Irish PA’s out there at the moment.
