COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pasteurised nitro-keg and nitro-can beer.
May alse be / have been produced at Tadcaster.
"A smooth, creamy ale." Introduced in 1994 as a 4.8% Irish Ale by Bass at Caffrey’s Ulster brewery, and promoted strongly with an advertising campaign of "strong words softly spoken". Interbrew took over in 2000, soften the recipe and attempted to catch the lager market, using a new promotion of "a storm brewing". Coors acquired the brand in 2002. Initially contract brewed by Interbrew for Coors at Ulster, the brand eventually moved to Coor’s Tower Brewery in Tadcaster.
The ABV was reduced from 4.8% to 4.2% in 2001 and, in March 2010, was further reduced to 3.8%. ABV may vary in export markets.

Muggus69 (1390) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - FEB 25, 2014
OLD NOTES SEP 22, 2004 Nitro can. Pours with an amber body with a trademark creamy nitro head. Light nutty caramel aroma. Smooth body, buttery sort of malt flavour. Has hints of sweet caramel with a slight bitter touch. Pretty basic.

StuffWine (137) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - FEB 24, 2014
Pink-tinged amber, clear and still, with white creamy nitro head that lasted well. Aroma is fresh hops and honey, simple but nice. Taste only of simple malts. Flat, thin, and watery on palate; guess the typical for the style. Overall just felt unsatisfied. Curious to jump into a time machine and taste the original brew.

klajmajk (102) - CZECH REPUBLIC - FEB 17, 2014
Pours light brown color with very stable white milky head. Maltyness both in aroma and taste. Quite light bodied. In result neither bad nor very good.

Iznogud (1233) - CROATIA - JAN 20, 2014
On tap at O’Neills, Soho, London. Hazy honey color, just after pouring looks great with nice creamy head. Thin bodied. Bland taste. Disliked it.

Couleur ambrée et trouble, petit col blanc cremeux. Nez très leger de malt et caramel. Gout caramel un peu amèr. Corps acqueux sans fin de bouche.

Sparf (152) - Östersund, SWEDEN - JAN 2, 2014
2012-04-27 Mild tunn doft. Kolaestrar och mjölk, Metall. Platt och fullständigt meningslöst. Äcklig kemisk sötma. I princip utan beska. Blaskigt tunn och med ett kemiskt mjölkaktigt skum. Hade ratebeer tillåtit 0 poäng hade den fått det.

BiffNilsson (270) - Perstorp, SWEDEN - DEC 31, 2013
Ganska liten doft, men vissa inslag av söt malt. Vacker mörkgul färg med krämig vit krona. Smaken är totalt slätstruken. Vatten med lite malt? En väldigt liten efterbeska men inget mer. Å var är kolsyran? Här är ingen överhuvudtaget! Frågan är om det är meningen? Ölen är vacker att se på, men i övrigt är den värdelös i min mening.
