Git next to the mashtun with a copy of Playboy==>’cream’ of Manchester.
Sweet, cloying flavor with. Pronounced, unbalanced green apple taste. Some minor degree of hop bitterness. Nitro tapping makes this have a nearly flat profile.

They call this beer ’The Cream of Manchester’ and just one taste will tell you why. Smooth...

Another good widget beer. I thought this could be Caffrey’s twin brother so I am rating it exactly the same. Similar bronze color, creamy, somewhat flavorless Ale. My #100!

Lovely pint. Has a good head, and is pretty damn smooth. Don’t have too many of these at a meal though. I had four with some fish and chips in Vancouver, B.C., and I couldn’t eat for two days for being stuffed.

UPDATED: APR 13, 2005 A very unassuming beer. Creamy nitro texture. Really no character at all. It’s just sort of there.

This is a little too weak for me, but not too bad. Has a very nice aroma.

A rather boring beer. I tried this ale once in a local tavern & wasn’t very impressed at the time and thought that maybe there was something wrong with how it was served or stored. Some months later, I bought a 4-pack of 1-pint cans at a local supermarket and hoped that maybe I’d experience a more livelier taste. Unfortunately, I was not too impressed by this ale and I probably won’t be buying any more of it in the future.

UPDATED: SEP 26, 2004 Some of the smoothest stuff you can pour from a can. Perhaps not too much character, but I like it anyhow. Easily accessible even in Norway, a lot better than most of the stuff we get here.

Just average. A friend and I checked out Fado’s in Atlanta and this was the only thing on tap I hadn’t tried before. I finished the glass, but don’t think I’ll ever go for it again.
