Canned Draught: Pours a copper colour with an exceptiona creamy tan head thatís good to the bottom.
Aroma: bready malt, a whiff of vanilla-fruity right off.
Flavour: Malty with that creamy (yet flat) middle. Fruity cheek finish fading into bitter.
I like it quite a bit, but not ALOT.

UPDATED: MAR 5, 2006 500ml on tap at Gardermoen Airport. Golden brown. White lasting head. Inoffensive, creamy and smooth with a few hints of malty flavour. Function quite well as a thirst quenching beer (01.02.2006)

Reds were my favorite til I started learnin beers. This is still an excellant red but just an average beer as the percentile shows. Everyone I know that likes reds considers this the best. It just doesnít compare to the beers Iíve been reviewing.

If it doesnít work, donít force it. That is good when working with fragile parts and reviewing beers. I want to like this, but I also wanted to like Billy Madison.

amber colour with lace, only a bit of head. Light mouthfeel, creamy and on dry side. Not much taste, but quaffable, in fact quite smooth. Good amount of malt and some carmel. Decent aftertaste though drying. Session ale.

On Tap. Poured a dark amber with a small head. Malty aroma, but it was tough to tell with all the damn smoke. Had a roasted, caramely flavor. Iíll have to try this again in a different setting.

Dark beer with foamy white head. Ordinary smell with most beer. Roasted malt flavor. Very pleasant to the tongue, a must at european Irish pubs!
