UPDATED: NOV 24, 2007 Can 440 ml. One of my favourites. Looks great, smells good too. Flavor lasts throughout, tastes pleasantly malty. Slightly higher re-rate as the one Iím having right now is delicious and watching it settle after pouring was so satisfying.

Amber o color with a white head. An aroma of malt and sweet fruits. A flavor of malt and hops.

If it wasnít for actual photographic evidence this beer would have been lost forever. Thin mouthfeel for an irish ale, light rust colour, creamy yet watery, I am sure its better on tap though, look forward to re-rating on draft one day til then, crap in a can!

One of my favourite beers and drink it most frequent. I love the amber colour, the thick white head, the fact that as soon as you open the can the head canít wait to splooge out all over the place, the creamy texture an the wonderfully smooth after taste. If you drink it in a glass, I find it tastes a lot better and you can truly enjoy the beer with out the widget rattling around inside like a childís toy.

Can (440ml). Wow - canít believe I havenít rated this yet. Gotta love a beer named after cats ... Damned widget can, this really looks great - creamy amber, lasting creamy off-white head. Smells, sweet, grainy, stale and weedy; sharp. Taste - many, I think I can taste the damned nitro - itís weirdly bitter, sugary, with a dead floral aftertaste. Smooth, creamy, dry, not much carbonation at all, odd aftertaste from the widget. This cream ale is incredibly dull and not a lot of fun after a couple of pints .. on tap itís really thin, unless they nitro THAT too ...

440 ml can. pours beautiful dark red/amber/brown. nitrogen ensures you get a beautiful cascade of dancing bubbles in your glass that take a few minutes to calm down but leaves you with what looks to be the perfect beer. aromas are thin but its tough to get anything through that nitro head. flavours are bland. great creamy mouthfeel and very easy to drink but overall its to watery and easy for my taste.

rossa media schiuma non molto profumata prevale il cerale e le note tostate in bocca poco corpo ma con un netto e piacevole sentore di tostato

Sampled at the LCBO Summerhill Beer Festival, Toronto ON. Poured with a heavy hand, that was a definite upside to this particular sample. The first cream ale Iíve ever tried.. not real eager to go back. Kind of a watered-down Guinness with a hint of Smithwicks.

500ml widget can. thick nitro head. nice red color. not much going on with the aroma, just a big thick foam. flavour is pretty weak, and thin, and quite bitter in the finish. meh, pretty middle of the road on this one.
