It used to better (at least in America) when we got the real Irish stuff. Beer contract brewed in Canada is NOT as good as the original (witness Kirin, Fosterís). Just average.

Good mass production beer, although the last few I purchased have been skunked.

Good stuff. Thin, low aroma, but still a good mass-market brew.

For a while I thought this was the best lager there was out there. Nicer taste than the typical pale/golden lager, but since I found the Dortmunder Gold, Iíll go with the latter anytime. Good, above-average beer.

Deep, fruity sweet aroma. Fuller bodied than most lagers. I favor this one warm or slightly cool, which allows the flavors to develop. Nice barley finish.

UPDATED: JAN 19, 2007 Bottle: Pours a pale yellow with a thin white head, flowers, grass and grain in the aroma, thin bodied with sharp carbonation, crisp ending, starts and ends lightly bitter. Spring one on your íbadbeerí buddies and they will like it.

Personal fav...of all Irish beer, goes down smoothly and not as heavy as most Irish brews. If not a fan of Guinness, give this a chance

Very tasty Lager. Definitely
one of my favorite Lagers. Best served super cold in a glass while your at the local Irish pub with your friends talking about chicks youíve nailed and steamy shits youíve taken. However, it can make that gross fat chick at the end of the bar appear to look like a Playboy Bunny. Beware...
