Notes/Commercial Description:
Bay Ale is a copper coloured, traditional ale with malt and hop aromas and a smooth and well-balanced flavour. Hoppy, yet malt-forward this ale strikes a great balance. Using Perle, Bobek and Willamette hops alongside a strong malt backbone this beer is both for savoring and thirst-quenching, depending on your mood.

Cask at Against The Grain, Dublin, Ireland

A: The beer is hazy yellowish amber in color and has no visible carbonation. It poured with a half finger high frothy off white head that died down and left a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of tea leaves are present in the nose.
T: The taste is similar to the smell and has lots of tea-like flavors.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a low amount of carbonation.
O: This beer has the most in the way of tea-like flavors compared to any of the other beers I've had in the style.

Serving type: cask

Served from tap into Bay Brewery pint glass at the Salthouse pub in low altitude Galway, Ireland.

A: One finger head of fair cream and very poor retention. Copper colour. Clear.

Sm: Caramel, toffee, cream, barley.

T: Lovely cream lacing from the open bleeds into the body which is rather hoppy with the notes from the nose. Cream on the finish. Well built; adequately balanced.

Mf: Nice coarseness and smoothness balances, but it ought to be more dry. Way too heavy for its relative simplicity.

Dr: Expensive, but nicely done. All around worth a go, just to say you've tried it.

Serving type: on-tap
