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.

elbernays (1328) - Dublin, IRELAND - JUN 29, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 13, 2015 On tap, bloody stream howth. Nose of hops, slight fruits. Sweet taste but very light aftertaste. Pretty average but glad to escape the hum drum.

500ml bottle (K Kamppi, Helsinki)
Pleasant sweet red berry hoppy aroma.Some Doppio Malto butteriness too. Slightly sticky palate, OK carbonation. Tastes and feels very dead, but it does have a nice full grainy roast. Some caramel, some huskiness. Resiny hop finish, dry and drying. But theyre not full hops, its very extracty. Sub-par for an ale. Commercial description is bullshit - adding preservatives so that it ferments quicker!?!?!?

On keg at Bull & Castle, Dublin. Pale golden with white head. Plenty of toffee hints, with hop balance. Very good malty session ale.

Gyllengul l med vitt skum. Grsig beska, och viss maltstma i doften. Samma i smaken tillsammans med en antydan av smrkola.

Available on draft at the bierhaus. Fine example of an Irish pale ale. Not overly hoppy, mild mid strength.

kathouse (1742) - LAS VEGAS, Nevada, USA - MAY 11, 2013
Marketed as beer of the year for 2007 & 2009, I found this to be the worst selection I made. Pale orange/yellow with a grainy head. Aroma was pretty hoppy with citrus and hay. Body was extremely light. Dry malt, bread, and more grass flavors. Finish was bitter and not very pleasant.
