A farmhouse beer (whatever that really is) from Donegal. Was a little nervous of the Rye aspect but really enjoyed this fine beer.

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.
