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.

Excellent Irish Pale Ale . Quite new to the market but already a great success in Ireland . Tangy bitterness and understated biscuity flavours which perfectly compliment the floral aroma and citrusy, dry finish

Stylish ale. Has a wonderful citrus smell, fruity and malty. Refreshing mouthfeel, definitely a session beer.

On tap at the Magpie Inn in Dalkey, Dublin. Creamy flavor, not very strong and I like it very much. Thick and bubbly long after being poured. Very well constructed. I would drink these all the time.

Had it at the Bull & Castle Gastro Pub, Dublin. This pale ale with nice malty tones really does have something to contribute to the pale ale constellation. It’s a brand new brewery, only around since the summer of 2006. I expect great things from them.

A simple Pale Ale that has a hazy appearance and a smooth and lingering flavour.

UPDATED: APR 23, 2008 Keg at Bull and Castle, Dublin. Lovely IPA, refreshing with lots of hops. Grass, flowers and bitterness. Lingering finish. This would be great with food. I find no flaws with this beer, a bottle conditioned version should sell well abroad.
