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.

MiP (15962) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - DEC 20, 2013
Bottle, 4.3%. Slightly buttery and spicy aroma. Hazy greyish golden colour. Small frothy white head. The flavour is OK citric hoppy and a little spicy. But there is still a bit of unclean butter or something. OK drinkable, but not that good.

bhensonb (15624) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 4, 2017
Tap at The Temple Bar, Dublin. Pours clear gold with a white head. Aroma seems floral. Med body or so. Flavor is floral and ryely malty. This is quite tasty. Reminds of the recent Guinness rye ale. Underrated IMHO.

Bov (13221) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - MAY 4, 2014
from Mondial de la Bière 2013, Mulhouse - clear amber-orange beer under a solid creamybeige foam; pretty aromatic hoppiness with light fruity (pear dominates) and spicy notes; hints of caramel underneath; creamy palate, moderate malt backbone; some sweetness and a late gentle earthy tartness; more fruity and spicy hoppy tones in the finish - charming

thewolf (12757) - Kolding, DENMARK - APR 20, 2012
Bottle, bought @ Vinspecialisten, Kolding Storcenter.
Clear pale amber golden with a small, frothy, white head. Fine duration. Aroma has sweet doughy malts, some grapefruit, citric, soft pine. Medium to high carbonation, fine light but nicely elegant dry mouthfeel. Flavour is softly citric, mild pine, fair bitterness. Good balance and very easy to drink.
