Mine Head American Pale Ale
A classic west coast style American pale ale.
Introducing the latest line up to our core range, Mine Head American Pale Ale. This is a classic American style pale ale made using only cascade hops, and also dry hopped with Cascade to impart fresh hop aromas. Released in summer 2014, this is now a full time part of of our core range and available in both keg and bottle year round.
Tasting notes: Up front it’s all about the citrus flavours of the Cascade hop which leads on to sweeter toffee and marmalade-like maltness for a balanced flavour.
Food Pairing: This beer works great with lighter fish or with earthy meats such as lamb or beef. Also excellent with spicy Thai or Vietnamese food, or keep it American with a burger!
Cheese Pairing: Great with a creamy camembert-style cheese such as Cooleney or a tart sheeps cheese like Knockalara.
Alcohol: 5.5% ABV
Allergens: Contains Barley
What’s in a name: Mine Head is a 68m high headland in Old Parish, west of Dungarvan, on top of which stands Mine Head lightouse, the highest elevation lighthouse in Ireland which features on all our bottles.
