Very smooth and creamy, but to me creamy is not a great quality for a beer, at least not to that degree.

Weak, watery ale with not much flavor. Overly malty, with not enough hops to balance it. I don’t think I will buy this - at least in a can - again.

The smell of this stuff reminds me of when I was a kid - the odors that used to come out of dark, dank Chicago bars on say, Saturday morning, when they’d air the place out after a big night. Its a generic, yeasty sour smell - not a bad smell but not all that great either. There is a persistent, small creamy head which at first is nice, but after awhile is a bit unpleasant. If you make the extra effort, you can taste a fruity, hoppy undertone to the beer but, after downing one, a second glass seems watery - not enough taste to stand up to session drinking.

I’ve been an avid Irish beer drinker for years, but once my pub started carrying Caffreys, I almost never drink anything else.

Nice smooth creamy brew. Even good out of the can. Could drink it anytime.

Body is chestnut brown. Creamy head that might last for dayswith good lace but consequent lack of carbonation in the body. Little flavour apart from lightly roasted bitterness. Lasting bitter aftertaste. As with all PDC beers would be much better on tap.

Aftertaste is a bit much. It was such a pretty beer too. :( LOL
