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.

Sparf (116) - 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.

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.

Maxthemac (1) - Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 11, 2013 does not count
in it’s early days, it was a stonking pint, however, the successive lightening of it’s ABV has also affected the taste , and texture.... it’s still a nice pint, in a bland inoffensive way, but no longer worth searching out as a prerequisite for choosing a pub

TaxiDriver (1472) - Stadland, GERMANY - DEC 1, 2013
Can. A malty smell, some roasted malt. The white head is quite large and milky, the body is red. The taste is a little bit malty and bitter. Unfortunately the taste is not as dominant as the smell. The body is light, very creamy with a soft carbonation.

So utterly bland that it is virtually tasteless, therefore I can’t be arsed to do proper review other than to say that what little semblance of taste there is, at least it isn’t unpleasant.

Ja det här var då IKKE bra. Lite maltig och viss sötma i aromen. Smaken var rejält blaskig.

Upphällningen av den här ölen var en riktigt trevlig upplevelse med ett fint skum som såg ut sväva ovanpå ölen. Annars var inte utseendet helt i topp även om den hade en fin färg så var den klart genomskinlig. Smaken var allt annat än kraftfull och kroppen var i absolut minsta laget, dock var smaken rätt fin med gräsiga och jordiga toner.

Fra fat på pub i Gibraltar: denne var så intetsigende at jeg ba om å få byttet den i noe annet, noe de også gjorde uten å mukke. Føler av og til at vi drukner i et hav av internasjonale, sterile lagerprodukter.

Koskela (287) - Marysville, California, USA - NOV 2, 2013
Slight caramel and hop aroma comes with this nitrogen infused crystal clear pale red brew. Theres a great creamy head with this glass. It has a sweetish flavor with d dry buiscuty mid taste and at the end u get the nitrogen taste. There is a tin kinda flavor from the can im guessing. Its a lighy bodied brew with a smooth feel. Not much for this beer. It has the color and the mouthfeel and that biscut flavor but not really what i was lookin for.
