Carlow’s Curim. A Golden Treat
Curim Gold, Celtic Wheat Beer, 4.3%, Carlow Brewing Company
Took an instant liking to this because of the look: gold, bright and sparkling.
Can’t always judge a book by its cover but this instant judgement worked out well on this occasion. The lightly hopped beer is a terrific refreshing drink with hints of fruit and a good dry finish.
Definitely my favourite of the three Carlow beers in this tasting, thanks to a win in a recent online Galvin’s Wine.
O’Hara’s Red Ale, 4.3% abv, Carlow Brewing Company
This is really red, quite a dark one! With hoppy aromas; malty and caramel on the palate, really pleasant and then a tasty dry finish. Convinced and converted.
O’Hara’s Irish Pale Ale, 5.2%, Carlow Brewing Company
“A full and lasting bitterness”, they say on the bottle. And I can agree with that as there is a stout like dryness in this deep amber beer.
“...followed by a zesty citrus burst.” Not too sure about that. Not to my liking but do try it for yourself. That is the beauty of craft beers. There are so many, you are sure to find some that you will really like as companies such as Carlow are rapidly banishing the bland.
