This is a very simple, basic beer that really is a poor imitation of an Irish ale.

Copper, it has a small off-white head soon thinning to thin foamy ring.

Aroma is slightly caramelised, lightly toasty grain, vague hint of orange, grass. It's a bit like a caramelly pale lager.

Taste is light, simple, sweetish toasty barley (faintly caramelly), vague, thin grassy-peppery hop bitterness lurking under the sweetness. Overall, it is simple, thin, vague, and rather bland, but decent enough.
