2.88/5  rDev -3.7%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

500ml bottle

Pours with a cloudy yellow body, thick bubbly egg white head, fizzy and a few hints of lacing on the glass

Smell, faint whiff of malt, little bit of dms. A slight floral aroma but very slight

Taste, fairly crisp mouthfeel, some slight dry lingering hops, bisuity malt, slightly sweet on the finish

A poor offering from this newly opened Irish micro, good to see its bottle conditioned however that doesnt help if the beer is this bland

Tasted this 500ml bottle on 28.01.2007, best by 17.08.08 on cap.

The pour and appearence was very encouraging; it looked a classic hefeweizen with a nice cloudy straw coloured body topped off with a nice white head.
There was an immediate slight banana smell, but this had disappeared by halfway.
The taste was at first a bit "thin" and somewhat disappointing considering the appearence. There was a dry finish and after drinking the glass to halfway, I was taken by a metallic aftertaste. Overall, this is a beer that I would not be in a hurry back to. I hope it improves.
