On commence à aimer cette microbrasserie
Il est extrêmement difficile de trouver d'autres bonnes, à l'exception de Guinness, en Irlande. Mais ici, à Letterkenny, la microbrasserie Kinnegar, nous offre une gamme d'excellents produits. Cette bière bien crémeuse nous en met plein la bouche, c'est parfait après on longue journée de marche!

Reddish brown, not too much foam, off-white colored.
Rye in the smell, then citric notes, light maltiness, grassy notes.
Spicy taste, pepper, good maltiness and again the rye.
The hop rises up in the aftertaste, grassy and earthly, decent long standing.
Maybe a bit watery, but not bad at all.

From cask. Light orange color off-white head. Aroma has some light spicy notes, orange rind, biscuits, also a bit medicinal. Taste is malty, grainy, bready, slightly spicy.

500ml bottle from McCambridge's Of Galway (€3.95):
Great stuff & definitely up there with the best from the brewery that I've tried so far. The beer was very fresh & lively with a lot of hop bitterness & tropical fruits coming through, something that is usually missing from a lot of Irish brewed IPA's sadly. There was a good balance between the tropical flavours, hops & the caramel sweetness that followed & as a result the beer was a very easy one to drink. The taste was flavoursome & varied with plenty going on, the only slight negative being the amount of sediment that was showing in the glass but it's definitely a beer I'll be on the look out for again.
