You've opened a brewery in a popular tourist region, your venue has a large capacity, you're going to be busiest in the hottest months and you're aiming to bring in a wide spectrum of guests – families, locals and tourists as well as beer enthusiasts. In other words, it's not a bad idea to have a broad appeal lager on your lineup.

And what Dermot O'Donnell and his team have come up with is an undemonstrative, refreshing pale golden number: a hint of fruitiness, cracker like pale malts and a touch of bitterness, there to quench thirsts on a hot day at the coast.
