Nitro-tap at Against The Grain, Dublin, Ireland
A: The beer is clear amber in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high creamy beige head that died down and left a large patch of bubbles on the surface, a collar around the edge, and lots of lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of tea leaves are present in the smell.
T: Similar to the smell, the taste has flavors of tea leaves along with notes of pale malts. The tea flavors linger through the finish.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied, smooth and a little creamy on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This is a simple red ale that goes down very easily. I like how the taste of tea blended with the other malty flavors.
Serving type: nitro-tap

Light amber color, clean. One finger of foam, decent.
Very irish smell, good maltiness and biscuit, balanced by the hop, earthly and slightly citric.
Same for the taste, biscuit malt, grainy. Then hop. Well balanced.
Light body, good drinkability, and good aftertaste with tea and citric notes.

Odd that an Irish brewer would be producing an American Pale Ale, but there you are.
The color of the beer itself, and its head, is much as I would expect a pale ale to be.
There is an aroma of hops, and the minerals in the water contribute as well.
It tastes like a UK beer- full of gypsum notes, fighting with the hoppiness. Very clean and with a slightly bitter aftertaste, though. Nice!
It is properly carbonated and feels good in the mouth.
Overall, the sum of the parts add up to a very good score.
