Had this twice now. First time was served by someone from the brewer, so I'm assuming that's how it is intended to be.

Very fizzy light ale that looks like a lager. Taste is pleasant, mild, and could even pass as a lager to people who don't know any better.

The first thing you notice about the beer is the packaging. It's wonderful. A design that is as interesting as the beer within. I always find a well packaged beer, gets one excited for what lies ahead.

The smell is hoppy, without being over powering.

Taste is just fantastic...very much what you'd expect from the smell. It's lively and bright.

Overall...I'd definitely recommend this beer. It's one I'll take pleasure in keeping in stock in my fridge from time to time!

Served on draught in the Porterhouse in Temple Bar, Dublin. Poured into a generic pint glass (for shame, Porterhouse).

A: One finger head of decent cream. Pathetic 30 second retention. I'm excited to try a new Irish brewery beer. Amber-copper colour. Transparent.

Sm: Fresh caramel and nutty hops. Butterscotch hints? Medium strength scent. Maybe a bit of vanilla as well. Hard to determine with me broken nose.

T: Holy butterscotch, batman! Cream laden finish. Hoppy body is balanced with the finish. Wow!

Mf: Smooth, maybe a bit too much, for that matter. But coarse enough to allow the nice flavour linger.

Dr: Brilliant. Worth every penny, even at Dublin prices. I'm very excited for this brewery. They're doing things right from the outset, it seems.

I have had a few pints of this new (2010) beer, the first ever commercial brew from Trouble Brewing , but his review is on a pint served from the tap at the Bull & Castle, Dublin on 20.08.2010.
Appearence; golden to amber clear brew with a very slight haze and a nice thin white head. Nice carbonation.
Smell was good overall, some diacetyl, hops with a touch of smoke somewhere. Pleasent.
The taste is a bit hard to describe; absolutely nothing offensive in it; everything is good, but no stand-out flavours that I can put my finger on. Nicely balanced ale making it a perfect session brew. It has improved (I think) since it first made it's debut. An excellent addition to the ever improving beer scene in Ireland.

A:Poured amber/caramel colour with a small head that disappeared quickly.

S: Bland on the nose with slight hop edge over biscuity yeast/malt, very dull

T: Slightly bitter with a malty edge and nothing else no length or depth. Mouthfeel is light.

This beer is best avoided to be honest much better Irish beers out there and definately better world beers.

Served in a 33cL stange glass in the Bull & Castle in Dublin.

A: It looks like apple juice -- a clear golden-brown with faint bubbles. Light head, but almost completely solid lacing.

S: Nice, but light. Spiced apples and white grape juice. Delicate, dancing, lovely.

T: Hrm. Ciderish? Difficult to describe. Very light fruit (I can't pin down which) flirts around with a nice malt base. Hops barely figure in, except for *maybe* on the aftertaste.

M: Nothing special, but nice enough I suppose. Decent carbonation.

D: A very drinkable, rather strange beer. Light fruit dominates the flavour completely. It's interesting. I can neither commend nor censure it.
