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.

When first presented by the bartender, the entire glass was foam which slowly subsided into a light amber colored beer. Creamy body without much taste (there is a slight bitterness).

Creamy, but lacked any flavor. I would like to try it on tap and see if it is any better.

Gossamer body and flavor. I guess the sheeting action of the head may be interesting to those trained by Guinness.

soft, creamy, bland, dissappointing, no real flavour and boring, no character whatsoever.

Beautiful head of course. Typical nice amberish color. I didn’t think it tasted like much of anything though. Just slight flavor.

Sudsy head lasts longer than cheap dishwashing fluids, tastes marginally better...thin hoppy flavour, great with a depth charge of Jamiesons., hec better.
