BroueNeault (158) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 25, 2003
UPDATED: JUL 26, 2003 From an irish pub. This one is appealing in appearance, but a bit deceptive. Still, a nice nut and wood taste and a good bitterness.

Out of a nitro can. I have to say that I really hate nitros after drinking this. Sure they give a nice apperance and head, but they leave nothing in the way of aroma or taste. Some malt, a tiny bit of bitterness, but pretty bad overall.

rlgk (9492) - Göteborg/Jönköping, SWEDEN - JUL 15, 2003
UPDATED: FEB 1, 2004 A reddish beer that also has a reddish top. A somewhat fruity and sweet flavor, with a pleasant flavor. A good bbeer to start an evening with.

minguimore (17) - SPAIN - JUL 15, 2003
Not easy to find a tap of it in spain and never the same in bottle. It´s a soft ale with a nice sweet flavor (not too sweet just little). It has a great foam, creamy.

Rastacouere (6107) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 12, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 30, 2003 From a pint can. Boddington-like nitrogen creamy aspect. Nose of nuts, taste of bitter caramel that stays for a while. Relaxing.

LINKBREW (101) - Santee, California, USA - JUL 12, 2003
On draught at an Irish pub in Amsterdam. Deep amber color. slightly sweet caramel flavor, but with fresh hop flavor and aroma. A good Irish session ale.

SDbruboy (1864) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 1, 2003
6/17/03, on draft at an Irish pub in Frankfurt - who'd have thought that my favorite beer in this German city would be an import from Ireland? Lovely amber-brown color with white head. Very attractive in logo glass, nice lacing. Toasty malt aroma, with bread, apricots and floral hops. Rich roasted malt flavor, sweet but nicely balanced with hop bitterness. Nice, creamy mouthfeel, medium body and pleasing. Yum!

mds (2167) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 21, 2003
Not much to the aroma, somewhat malty. Thick white creamy head. Tastes very smooth/creamy, but boring. slightly bitter finish

Dalle (1145) - Skørping, DENMARK - JUN 11, 2003
Medium-sized off-white head. Clear amber colour. Malty/fruity aroma. Medium body, smooth/soft. Clean taste. Sweet with long bitter finish.

Linc (737) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUN 1, 2003
Crystal malt is about all you get in both the aroma and flavour. Palate is quite smooth and full to start but it's just a trick of the nitro, finish is very thin and flavourless.
