Almost the perfect beer that has made me stop ordering cocktails at the local pub. A tad watery, the more you drink the less you taste. However that can be said for all spirits. Too hard to find.

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.

The best looking non-stout pour I have ever seen. A real thick, rich, creamy head. Sadly, it’s not all it could be. It needs a bit more bite to it. As it stands, it goes down real creamy and leaves my palate hanging. The flavor is just not there. I waited and waited for that extra hoppy kick, but it never set in. Still, the appearance and aroma makes it a worthwhile purchase now and then. Put some bite into this and It’d be one of the best beers out there. It just goes down like creamy water. I was harsh on the overall because it’s just so damn disapointing.

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.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.
