Draught at St Michael, Oulu. Colour is dark amber with creamy white head. Aromas and flavours are toffee and sweet malts. Quite watery but still one of my "old time favorites".

440ml nitro can- smooth beer with a slight nutty flavour. A decent beer but nothing special.

Looks great, tastes lousy. The nitro can did its job and it poured with a creamy head, however, that’s about all this beer has to offer. Aroma is wet paper. Taste is water with a caramel candy diluted in it. Very, very disappointing. Doesn’t taste bad, just doesn’t taste like anything at all.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Amber colour with a creamy white head. Light hoppy aroma with some sweet malt. Creamy texture with a mild sweetness. Mild toffee and caramel flavour, and a bit flat.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
From 440 ml nitro can. Clear, deep amber pour with a 1 cm lasting head. No sparkle to speak of and the aroma is very faint. The taste is caramel with an apple juice note and light bitterness. Not offensive, but a bit bland.

Draught. Cloudy pale golden in color with a thick creamy whitish head. Quite mild aroma, some malty sweet notes and toffee is apparent. Light maltyness in taste along with some sweet tones as toffee. Pleasant and enjoyable.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at restaurant. Slowly settling in glass, golden yellow with silky lipsticking white foam head. I like these British smooth lagers. Quite bitter aroma, and also nice taste. Nice bitter aftertaste. Perfect. (Barnsley 201210)

Is this the Irish equivalent of Budweiser? Tastes like water and you get almost runs circles around the palate to find any flavor at all.
