Beer Review: Reel Deel – Irish Blond

Reel Deel is one of the newest Irish breweries. They opened their doors in Crossmolina, Co. Mayo in September and have recently launched their first beer. “Like most Irish Blonds, at heart, she’s a redhead”. This about sums up the beer because it is in fact a red ale rather than a blond ale, or as the bottle says, an amber.

As you might expect, it starts out by being malt forward. A few moments later, the bitter hit from the hops balance it out. The hops also provide some citrus notes as well as a little fruit. A little peppery note and a slight earthy tone. It’s a great all year round beer. Dark enough for winter and refreshing enough for summer.
