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.

UPDATED: SEP 14, 2013 440 ml 3.8% ABV nitro-can, pours clear amber with a large creamy white head. A faint aroma of white bread. Taste of white bread, slightly bitter and sweet. Light body, creamy smooth texture and well carbonated. Easy to drink tasteless beer.

PriorL (1760) - Gent, BELGIUM - SEP 3, 2013
TAP, Poured like a Guinnes! (Nitro keg) APPEARANCE: clear darker blond beer, nice very stable white head. NOSE: grains, light citrus, foam gives a very recognizable scent. TASTE: guinnes like taste... foam, seems flat, not really my style of beer!

Styr unna!!! Sitter igjen med litt metallsmak i munnen. Det og utseende er det eneste som tilsier at jeg har drukket en øl.

Fin gyllenfarge. Ellers ingenting positivt å si omdenne. Smaker vann med metallsmak. Så å si ingen kullsyre. Altså helt død. Kommer aldri til å smake denne mer....

Keg sf mcilroys watford. Blimey it has Ben a while since I’ve had this beer. Clear copper colour. Persistent off white head. Oh this is bad. Aroma is wet socks. Stale malt. Watery thin palate. Absolute horrid.

Shaney (2428) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - JUN 12, 2013
Bernsteinfarben und viel feine Crema generiert aus der Nitro-Dose, geil. Ein leichtes Würzmalzaroma ist vernehmbar. Dünner Antrunk. Getreidig-malziger Geschmack mit etwas Hopfen. Die sanfte, cremige Art macht dieses Bitter sehr süffig.
