The keg arrived at 10am this morning. By 12 midday the tap was installed and the first sips tasted. The impressive tap clip won't be here until tomorrow, but a surreptitious nod to the barman tonight will put you in possession of Grainne and Tim's first offering: full of fresh hop flavour, lots of kiwi and lychee with a refreshing bitter finish.
Metalman Pale Ale €4.90; Part of the semi-permanent collection at L. Mulligan. Grocer.
