Appearance: Small head, apple juice color, medium carbonation. Taste: Thin, watery, somewhat lacking in character. Tastes like a macrobrew, though probably a bit better.

Pours a clear golden color. Pretty tall head, white and short lived. Little lacing. Nothing extraordinary.

Aroma is bready and also hoppy. A little more character than normal for a lager.

Taste is bready and hoppy. A little more bold than normal for a lager. A little more bitter. It has grassy hops that are a little more prominent than most. I taste medium roasted malts. Itís has a little more character than most lagers.

Mouthfeel is light. Lighter than what I expected. It finishes clean and dry. Itís almost like drinking water. Odd, I can taste the malts in my sinuses. Iím not sure why Iím tasting that, but it gives me a perspective I didnít have before.

Overall, itís good. Itís better than you Budweiser, your Coors, your whatever. More character, more flavor, and more pricey. But itís still a solid lager, and I would recommend trying it if you havenít.

I remember I used to drink this beer when I was student. It was £5 for 8 cans(?) I think it was. This was my first and possibly the last Irish lager I have ever tried. It was a basic everyday lager. Drinkable considering the price.

Now that I think about it, for the price, this is actually a pretty good beer. Havenít had it in a while though. Itís one of those black and tan beers.....fish and chips, etc. Good for drinking at an Irish Pub. You can get the point by now. A decent party beer too if looking for something in between craft and swill.
