If that toast is anything to go by, you know that you can’t have an Irish brewer without him insisting on a couple of Irish beers on tap. (All for him to drink, of course!)
This one is a dark beer, in which the malt and hop characters are beautifully balanced, giving you a little taste of caramel sweetness, offset perfectly by the bitterness derived by combining a variety of Noble hops from two different countries. A complex and delicious beer, we had to force our brewer to share this one with the public.
A delightful mix of the aromas of pine/grapefruit/raisins, which come from the malts and the hops used.
Containing a moderate level of carbonation, this one has a medium to medium-full body feel.
Reddish in colour, ranging from clear to brilliant.
Has a moderate to high hop flavour. The bitterness comes from the variety of hops used.
