Thought it had a great aroma, and a nice head. Nice thick golden color, but a weak palate and aftertaste. Nice, but not as good as the other pub ales.

Another PDC with a great head but no flavour. Thin and an artificial yellow colour. Nothing to make me want to buy again.

Good lord! what a head! The retention was unreal. I was done with the ber and there was still about a half inch left. Flavor was good but not too distinctive. What a pretty pour though!

DrBeer (829) - Solna Stockholm, SWEDEN - JAN 15, 2002
UPDATED: MAY 30, 2005 Yelloworange with thin off-white head. Roasted malt aroma with notes of apples, rubber and cinnamon roll dough. Creamy flavor with some bitterness. Dry and a bit salty.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JAN 11, 2002
UPDATED: FEB 4, 2003 Jan 2002 Had on draft. The appearance is that of Guinness, only gold instead of black -- beautiful. After that, kind of a boring everyday English light ale. Miles better than what most Americans drink everyday -- as smooth as something like Miller, but with more malt and enough hops so you know its beer -- but its a sad Irish pub that doesn't offer something better.

Feb 2003. BORING! I finally am really understanding why others hate nitro, and why "smooth" isn't always a compliment when it comes to beer. Thirst-quenching and easy to drink, but it was awfully hard to discern ANY flavor here other than an indistinct dryish maltiness. I will probably not have this again unless I can get to the UK.

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JAN 1, 2002
Re-Rate 01/01/02: Pours a cloudy gold, that clears quickly and leaves a bright white head and sheets of lace. Malt nose, thin middle, nice hop spicy bite at the slightly dry finish. Little or no carbonation, clean, fresh and not a bad beer, beats the hell out of that can swill.
