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.

I had a few pints at an ’Irish’ pub, found it to be a good session beer.

Very light in color, nice head retention, right to the bottom of my pint glass, but a rather watery ale.

Really creamy and rich in aroma. Not for summer use. Enjoy it slowly.

It looks deliscious, but you’ll be disapointed. Sour, acidic, apple taste. I almost wonder if I got a bad can. Won’t buy this again.
