Thanks to Sarah H. for this one! 500ml bottle poured into straight pint glass. Poured a clean, clear medium gold color with about a half-inch of white head that had moderate retention and moderate lacing.

The nose featured a very pleasant grain scent, with very gentle grassy, earthy hop notes. Pretty similar on the tongue, with the addition of a nice bit of hop bite at the back end.

The body was light and crisp, with a dry finish. Drinkability was very good, my lone bottle was gone quickly. Overall, a very nice little brew, one I would seek out were I ever to visit the Emerald Isle.

Floral. Not overly hoppy/fruity, decent

Poured a beautiful copper-gold with a fairly thick white head that settled to a foam on top of the beer. Aromas and flavors of honeysuckle, bread, and some citrus.

Pint on draft at Foley's in Dublin. Pretty standard Irish APA , in my opinion. Lowest ABV of the Irish APAs I've had and could maybe use more alcohol. Prefer this to Howling Gale, but would rather have a Kinsale Pale Ale.
