jercraigs (7638) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 30, 2003
UPDATED: MAY 29, 2009 2009-05-22. Crisp amber body with a big beige head and lace. (3+) Mild aroma, just a touch of dusty malt and hops, earthy touches. (5-6) Flavour has a light bitterness throughout, mild malts are earthy and dusty. Average palate is smooth, less nitro feeling than I remember it being in Canada, but I expect that is just a trick of my memory. Still don’t care for it. 5/3/6/3/12 - 2.9 On tap at Marble City Bar, Kilkenny

July 2007. Can at LCBO Summerhill. Brown amber body with a small white head. Grainy burnt toffee aroma. Dilute malt, lightly astringent grain and mild hops make up the thin watery flavour. Thin palate. Poor. 4/3/3/2/8 - 2.0

July 2003. Really not fond of this one. Very nice body and mouth feel on tap, nice bitterness. Didn’t sit well with my taste buds though. 4/3/4/4/7 - 2.2

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.

frylock (1135) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUL 22, 2003
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 (10082) - 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 (6122) - 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 (2200) - 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
