One of my all time favourites. This is so rare it is a joke - but it is unbelievably smooth. If anyone knows where it can be purchased in North London let me know!

Bevuta alla spina. Birra discreta, senza toni eccezionali e particolari. Buona beveribilità

"another winner when compared side by side to the relatively boring Murphy’s Irish Red. Same style, better beer. More flavor and slightly heartier aroma. Both are smooth."

From the archives: One of the first Irish ales / cream ales that I ever tried. Creamy, hoppy and dark as coal. Working as young barman, it was hard for me to understand why Beamish Red and Guinness settle differently. Was servin it in 2005,6,7 and last Pint I had myself was probably 2009, and a can in 2010. What would be a good alternative?

Pint on tap, Cork. A decent creamy ale. Very smooth and refreshing - quite light but full of flavour.

440ml nitro can pours amber in color with a 2 finger white head that retained well and settled to some thin lacing on the glass. Aroma is caramel and earthy hops. Taste is caramel malty sweetness with an earthy hop bitterness. A medium body and light carbonation. Overall, this is a pretty good ale.

440ml can. So, one St. Patrick’s Day probably 10 years ago I went down to the NSLC and bought every Irish beer in the store. The results did not go well. I found this beer to be watery and grainy tasting and it left me feeling bloated and gross. Not sad to see it has been discontinued.

sirPino (883) - Zawiercie/Sosnowiec, POLAND - SEP 27, 2008
No 581 Rated on tap at the Polish seaside, Beamish glass, 500 ml. Very nice deep reddish amber, gently carbonated and clear in texture body with very nice, thick head beige in colour and almost creamy in texture, rather small in size. Aroma is of some gentle nuts with red fruit accents and flowery hoppyness on top contrasting with clearly distinguishable malt at the background. Very smooth, easy going, silky pleasant on palate and drinkable but not that impressive or interesting as some other Irish Ales I’ve tried. Lacking kind of spicyness and character.

Clear reddish amber, settles just like a Guinness, big lasting white head. weak aroma of ripe fruit, some malt, hops and pines developes in mouth.Sweet adn short bitter finish.

I had this beer on tap at the airport in Shannon, Ireland. I was on my way home from Iraq and hadn’t had a beer in 7 months, so I’m undoubtedly biased, but this was the best beer I’ve ever had. I’d like to taste it again to get a more realistic opinion, but they don’t sell it in America

I drank it out of the can without a glass. But it taset ok, Rich flavor sort of sweet.
