September 2, 2015 - with blankboy and gregclow, courtesy of garthicus - 330ml can. As "Dublin Lager" Pale gold, clear, not much head. Somewhat off-putting honey/heather aroma, just enough cooked veg/plastic and not enough bitterness to give it more than a 6- ... taste is cleaner; oily, some actual bitterness ... but still with the pvc. Still, light mouthfeel, no lingering ugliness. Meh. Sigmund (7916) - Tau, NORWAY - JUL 23, 2017
Keg halfpint, as Five Lamps Dublin Lager, at Graingers, Dublin. Pale golden colour, white head. Nice fruity and floral hops in the aroma. Smooth fruity flavour throughout, very good. Maxbier (1000) - Maryland, USA - JUN 29, 2017
Golden pour from a fresh 12oz can near the source. Light grassy lager aroma. Herbal grassy hop. Light Pilsner like malt character. Nice light unskilled lager. Much better than the green bottle garbage that everyone around here appears to be drinking.

Pours yellow with initially a decent white head, retaining only a small head. Medium to high carbonation. Malty and some hoppiness, and slightly more sweet than most lagers DiceyReilly (2) - - DEC 13, 2016 does not count
As a golden lager it has a medium malt flavour with more carbonation than you usually find with craft beers. Had it 3 of 4 times now on draught in a few pubs in Dublin. The Duke served the nicest pint of it so far. I’d try it again. Found that after about 3 pints I preferred to veer towards Heineken. Worthwhile trying for yourself. Most people would happily enjoy a pint of it so you wont be sitting there sulking sipping slowly if you’re worried you wouldn’t like it.

As Dublin Lager. The beer has a normal, simple lager appearance. The color of the beer is good yellow and the beer is crystal clear. On top of the beer, there is an adequate amount of rough white foam. The bulk collapses quickly, to leave near to nothing.
The smell of the beer is mild. It’s not bad for a lager. There is a nice hoppy bitterness in the smell. There aren’t a lot of malt aromas present.
The taste is a bit more malty. I taste some bread malt flavors. There is also that nice hoppy bitterness. There is a nice amount of carboxylation. The finish is short and abrupt. blankboy (7808) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 16, 2015
[Can (330ml) shared with HogTownHarry & GregClow -- c/o garthicus] As ’Dublin Lager’. Pours a clear pale yellow-gold with an average size semi-lasting foamy white head. Aroma of grassy hops, light vegetal notes and bready malt. Flavour is slightly better, grassy, bready and a bit fruity. Average bodied. Not bad, nothing really wrong with this, a standard decent Lager. Carlowxxx (140) - Carlow, IRELAND - SEP 23, 2015
The beer is a gold with a white head of foam.
The aroma has bread and corn with a bit of grass.
Kind of a sweet beer.
Light body and medium carbonation.
