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.

Flaska inkpt i Dublin av kra frun. Gyllengul vtska med lgt skum. Brdig doft. Ren och neutral beska. Hade jag blundat hade jag misstagit mig fr en lager men det psts att denna skall vara en APA. Oavsett vilket r den ren och fri frn felsmaker, vilket belastar plussidan.

beerfest5 (1207) - Cloneen, IRELAND - JAN 3, 2010
on tap @ the bierhaus, cork. good color and aroma for a pale ale, and after having way too many lagers so far this week, a hoppy pale ale from one of the only microbreweries in ireland was just the thing. very refreshing and nice hop character, a little mild and needs more of an abv punch, but good beer that i will have to have one more of.

ciaranc (1102) - Dublin, IRELAND - DEC 20, 2012
Pours clear gold with a nice foamy white head. Toasted malt on the nose, not very strong. Quite bitter in the flavour which didn?t come through in the aroma. Malt character becomes apparent as it warms up. Thin bodied lively carbonation. Finish is more bitterness, a touch astringent.
