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.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Caramel, bread and some fruits in the aroma. Amber with a white head. Medium sweet and medium bitter. Light to medium body with a average carbonation. Overall totally OK, but it has a bit of an unpleasant cardboard like flavor in the finish and is quite boring.

A decent session ale but quite thin without a massive pungent hit. Decent colour. Dark Amber. And cold

A: Deep clear amber color with a small creamy beige head. Thin bubbles and few lacings
S: Sweet caramel malts and hops, basically. Some bready yeasts too

M: Light body. Watery as expected. Low carbonation. High drinkability
O: Quite honest Irish red ale. Typic pub ale

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 The Nut House in Eastbourne. Pours out in a hazy deep blonde colour with smooth head and smooth body. Aroma of mild hops and straw. Taste of mild hops, light nuts, wheat, light barlley, light malt, bread and flowers. Easy drinkable and very refreshing.

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.

Pint at The Old Boathouse Pub, Cotswolds. Amber colour with a nice thick head. Very delicate aroma. Light carbonation and soft on the palate. Some bitterness, little in terms of aftertaste. Typical UK commercial draught offering.
