Nick Moyle and Richard Hood are the critics from Independent and this is what they had to said about them.
Northbound 08 German Kolsch-style beers have been rapidly gaining in popularity, with Derry’s Northbound firmly among the appreciation club. Brewed with pale malt, peppery German hops and ale yeast, it’s a pale honey-hued drink, with soft doughy malts punctuated by a light fizz and some dry, yeasty spice.
Galway Bay Brewery Buried At Sea Anyone in need of a comforting beer to cradle should consider pouring this chocolate milk stout into their favourite pint pot and taking long, slow sips. Black with a thin tan head, it has all the toasty aromas you would expect from a stout along with the requisite silky smooth texture. There’s a decent hit of chocolate and a creamy sweetness which dries out with some smoky and nutty notes at the finish.
Mourne Mountains Brewery Red Trail Red IPA Mourne Mountain Brewery is a relatively new Warrenpoint-based outfit, outputting a range of beers which are inspired by the granite tipped peaks that lie south of the brewery. It brews up with mountain water, tapped from the Spelga Dam, which makes its beers noticeably soft on the palate. Born from a tryst of New Zealand and US hops, Red Trail is its enticing red IPA - an aromatic, hoppy number with hints of sweet, toasted malt on a long, dry finish.
Whitewater Brewery Maggies Leap Formidable IPA Situated just a misty, mountain hop away from the Mourne Mountain folk is the Whitewater Brewery, another shining light in the Northern Irish beer scene. With a raft of traditional ales to choose from, it’s Maggies Leap that springs out as one of its best. It’s a clean, punchy IPA, stacked with New World and American hops, and brewed from yeast acquired from the now defunct Belfast Brewery. An inviting, sessionable, moreish booze.
