Arguably the best lager going. Refreshing, tasty, nicely hopped. I enjoyed it.

SudsMaster (68) - Denville, New Jersey, USA - JUN 17, 2002
Smooth golden lager with a quality taste. Ill take it over any almost any American lager any day. Good mixed with Guinness too.

Nothing really distinctive about this one. Itís a beer. Not a particularly bad one, nor particularly good.

Crisp, refreshing beer with medium hoppiness and body.

bubslang (438) - Kentwood, Michigan, USA - JUN 13, 2002
I am not a lager fan, but this is about as good as it gets, there is actual malt and hop presence here. Probably one of the best beers of its style

Always enjoyed this beer, until it lost some of its brewing roots and began being produced in Canada. Still a credible Irish lager. Good in a half-and-half.

The famous Irish íLagerí is chock full of sulphur notes. Whatís the point? Lagering should reduce the sulphur. You may as well brew it as an ale if your going to put it out with these fermentation characteristics.

Decent, crisp lager. Slightly bitter with a clean flavor.

Medium caramel malt aroma. Donít think Iíve ever seen so many carbonation bubbles in a beer. Itís almost like champagne! I expected a thicker head from the makers of Guiness; nevertheless a well above average head and fantastic, frothy white brussels lace! Like Boddingtons, this is a European brewmakerís attempt to appeal to the American, fringe, wannabe beer connoisseur. Unlike Boddingtons, this one has the redeeming quality of flavor.

Not as disasterous as some rival efforts (hello Fosters, Bud et al). There are actually hints of malts and hops here! Average.
