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.

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.

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!

Not much to the aroma, somewhat malty. Thick white creamy head. Tastes very smooth/creamy, but boring. slightly bitter finish

Medium-sized off-white head. Clear amber colour. Malty/fruity aroma. Medium body, smooth/soft. Clean taste. Sweet with long bitter finish.

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.

Choos (595) - Taylors Hill, AUSTRALIA - MAY 31, 2003
UPDATED: JAN 23, 2004 Re-rate: Gentle malt aroma that is hard to find when on tap. Still great looking clear red stuff and the trick with the nitrogen/co2 mix makes it look really cool. Flavour is really quite week malt with a tiny bit of hop flavour that quickly gives way to a fantastically balanced hop bitterness which is what really makes this likeable. I think this should be drunk without food to avoid loosing the flavour altogether. Great for times when you need to quench your thirst quickly.

Sully (1377) - Potts Point, New South Wales, AUSTRALIA - MAY 23, 2003
This appears down here in the widget can. Its not a bad ale but it isn't remarkable. The head is the typical nitrogenous one atop an orange coppery hue. Very light on the hops. A bit of a bore, to be sure, to be sure.

my favorite beer. The smoothest beer I have ever had. Too bad I have to drive accross the border to canada to get it, because its not sold in michigan.

Deep brown color and a nice head. Great appearance. Light bitter. The finish is very short. Very smooth. Tried this from a can.
