3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUN 23, 2003 My can (bought in Norway, ABV 4,8%) says 'Premium Irish Beer', but surely this must be more or less the same thing?? An easily drinkable ale, perhaps not all that much character, but good, GOOD (not great). I don't hate nitro cans, but would like to sample this one on tap. (Maybe I have, without noticing....) Rerate: ABV 4.2% version, 440 ml can says "Premium beer" but this is clearly the same stuff, just a little more watery version. Very smooth.

Simple bitter. Can be creamy, can be flat. First alternative to simple pale lager.

"Slightly bitter, lightly sweet, and a creamy texture combine for a nice ale, if a bit on the simple side. Looks great of course, coming from the nitro can. not a favorite style, but this is nice."

On tap at an Eastbourne based pub. Creamy and smooth with some tea, herbs, and coffee. Easily drinkable and very pleasing. More than recommendable due to its balance.

Burk från Systembolaget. Fantastiskt snygg bärnstensfärgad vätska med gräddigt skum men det är tyvärr det enda roliga med den här. Besviken!

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nitro can 440 ml at home, poured into a big Guinness glass, ABV 3.8%
Deep copper orange to light amber, small creamy head, off-white in colour, with very good retention actually, leaving light lacing behind.
Malty aroma with some caramel and light toffee, all very faint.
Taste of some malts and caramel, also some herbal notes on the finish, nothing exciting but it still manages to satisfy.
Thin body with low carbonation, nice and creamy on the palate.
Average beer but still it drinks nice. Nothing to write home about though.
