Served from the tap.

The beer was clear and deep gold.

It smelled of sweet malts, citrus-hops, and honey.

The beer tasted like citrus-hops, and sweet malts. Unlike a lot of pale ales, this beer had a medium body and was very drinkable.

Would I buy it again? Definitely.

On-tap at The Norseman, Dublin, Ireland

A: The beer is clear yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high creamy off white head that died down and left a collar around the edge, patches of bubbles on the surface, and lots of lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of citrusy and grassy hops are present in the nose.
T: Similar to the smell, the taste has flavors of citrusy and grassy hops along with a light amount of associated bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is easy to drink. Although it is mostly dominated by hop flavors, there isn't too much in the way of bitterness.

Served on draught at the Bull & Castle in Christchurch, Dublin. 500ml was poured into a halbe. Reviewed from notes.

A: Pours a three finger head of decent thickness, cream, and retention. Colour is a clear blonde.

Sm: Bittering hops and wheat are all me broken nose detects. All apologies, lads.

T: Clean barley forms the foundation, with a murky balance of different bittering hops riding atop. The finish consists of dying hop notes. It's balanced strangely, with no real open and an asymmetrical body, but it's par for the style and delightful in its own right. Avoids too much bitterness, a common pitfall of pale ales.

Mf: Nicely dry to style, but perchance a bit too much on the climax. It could also use more smoothness to balance it out.

Dr: I wouldn't have it again at 4.40 euro, but it will please fans of the style and it's good to have an Irish pale ale other than Galway Hooker to please those of us that live in the auld country.

On cask at Porterhouse, Parliament St.

Orange gold with a dead calm body and a slight film that leaves just a few trails. Nectar sweet hops flower nose.
Ripe peach malts with bright fresh tangerine and floral hops plus a bit of resiny bite.
Fresh apricot finish with slight tart hit. Creamsickle linger and notable bitterness. Soft, round, creamy and smooth.

Silky body and epically complex but melded hops. Beats down any English blonde. Divine.

Served in a half pint
On-draft at The Black Sheep

A: Dull orangish yellow. Single (bubbly white) fingernail head.

S: Mostly wheat here with a touch of citrus (orange, lemon, etc.). Hop aroma is muted by somewhat over-powering malt sweetness.

T: Decent hops (considering they were well hidden on the nose) with loads of malt sweetness. The citrus fruit comes through quite well, but is not overly pronounced (I wish it were a bit more so). Finishes quite bitter, but all-around not too bad.

M: Light bodied with smooth carbonation.

O: It doesn't remind me of an American Pale Ale (more along the lines of an American Red), but no worries there. A nicely balanced beer that is easy to drink and quite good. Not great, but good.
