Paper City Brewing's Ireland Parish Golden Ale

First things last, this beer will put you on your tookus! I first had this beer at Big Mamou's in Springfield, MA; you can bring your own beer. I had an empty stomach and had the best Cajun food in the state along with a couple of these brews. After two I was lightheaded. You might remember this beer from the review here where I talked about their brewery.

I can't say enough good thing about this beer, though the brewery is a little bit late about getting back to me with the details of their brews.

It has a nice sharp bitterness to it, not last like an Indian Pale Ale and even shorter than the bite from a regular pale ale. Yet, it has a full bodied taste, a nice hoppy, short blast in your mouth. It leaves your mouth a little dry yearning for another taste, which is why these babies go down so fast.

The aroma is slightly sweet but mostly bitter and the taste is directs itself to your sour glands; those are the ones on the outsides of the main part of your tongue. It has a nice dry finish, so that in conjunction with the bitterness makes you want to drink like Robert Downey Jr.

It's foggier than most beer but, hey, what are you gonna do? This is a fantastic beer and if you're in the western Massachusetts area and don't get this, you are a stooge to the max! I'm not sure that it's available outside the area, but, like I said in my earlier review of Paper City, I think it's available in Bukowski's in Boston.

Drinkability: 9/10
Taste: 9/10
Value: ???/10
Curb Appeal: 7/10
