COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is an exciting new style of beer that we call Irish Pale Ale. This delicious beer is pale in colour, has a full well balanced hop flavour and aroma, a good foamy head, a carbonation level similar to standard lagers. Now you can, of course, make it as complicated as you like by adding various chemicals and preservatives to the beer so that it ferments and matures faster, has a longer shelf life and is cheaper to produce. However, as a small independent craft brewery, we believe in using traditional techniques and think that only the four basic ingredients of beer should be used to produce this wonderful, thirst quenching, magic potion. All we want to do is produce a pure and natural beer for the Galway market. Nothing more.

A light copperbrown beer with a almost medium but decreasing, blond head. Aroma is fresh and fruitfull even some tropical, lemon and caramelly malts. Taste is toffeeish, slightly fruitfull, lemon and aftertaste is dryer and wooden. Light+, but its not bothering. Nicely aromatic and fresh beer, for easy enjoy.

dantheman278 (1361) - SCOTLAND - MAR 13, 2012
Bottle at home. Pale orange amber, frothy head that fades with some light lacing. Nice fruit nose - apricot, hint of orange zest, some lager/noble hop earthiness too. Similar palate, dry and somewhat juicy with more of that noble hop vibe, black pepper, hint of ester and a dry grainy finish. Not bad!
