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.

Can, rated from backlog. Brown colour with medium head. Aroma and taste is light, earthy, marmelade, malt some toffee. A bit watery

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.

I have no idea why everyone is so hard on this fine beer. Much like a Kilkenny - very similar in appearance, butterscotch colour, creamy head, settles quickly. Fragrant aroma. Flavor is similar to Kilkenny but without the roasted bitterness. Hops are subtly pronounced in a good way, bit of a toffee flavor, aftertaste has a slight hop taste. Not as watery as everyone says, very similar consistency as Kilkenny but not quite as heavy in comparison to it. Caffrey’s is almost non-existent anywhere my wife and I have been in Ireland, though apparently it is in the North in some places. Always happy to have a pint of this when I can find it - if you’re a fan of Kilkenny, try Caffrey’s. Underrated, a great beer.

Excellent pour that started out butterscotch-colored then settled into the more typical Ale hue. Creamy almost to a fault, as there was not much of a beer flavor to it at all. Slightly tannic, and overall the flavor does not live up to the looks.

Used to drink this on draught when it first came out, bought 4 cans on promotion the other day not realising the taste and abv have been changed...in a word shocking!!! Weak as water, far too smooth, poor, what a shame.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
450ml Aluminium Bottle (it’s a posh can with a cap) of Caffrey’s Premium Irish Ale, 3.8%ABV; BBD 28 Feb 2013, poured at home into a ’Good Poeple’ badged US pint glass on 2 Apr 2013, so a bit out of date.
Bright amber body with a head that left before it arrived.
Mildly malty in the nose, but not much of anything really.
Malty feel to the flavour, semi-sweet caramel and Bourbon biscuits without the middle (the creamy bit). Watery, but not unpleasant, just a little too understated and overall weak in body depth and flavour strength.
Not something I’d have again: I do however remember when it first hit the bars in the UK, very popular with my mates, I even enjoyed a few pints. It has changed for the worst and it wasn’t too great to start with!

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
I’ve never had it from a can, but I don’t have the option of rating the draught version. Many moons ago I used to drink it with friends in Cardiff. Hit and miss on draught, but never bad. Sometimes tasted amazing (on draught in the Rummer Tavern in Cardiff) - sweet honey flavours. 3.7 Had again in an Irish pub in Watford recently - tasted OK, but didn’t have the sweetness that it sometimes had at the Rummer. 3.3 It seems that the beer has changed under new ownership.
