440 mL can. Pours active creamy beige, before settling into a lovely auburn with two fingers of thick head. Aroma has molasses and a hint of citrus. Carbonation is gone from the beer by the time you drink it. Nice balance of bitter hops and sweet roast, although the flavour overall is fairly restrained. Nice creamy texture. Finish is weak and ambiguous. Not bad, but not my favourite Irish.

There was a time that I really liked this beer. That was a time when the only alternatives I knew were mostly CUB $ Lion Nathan products, which doesn’t really say a great deal. I still think it is mostly decent though, but I’d love to try one of those bottles pictured as, like always, the nitrogenation, while providing a lasting head, seems to smooth out all the characteristics of the beer on tasting. Anyway, the roasted malt is quite noticeable in the aroma, with a touch of fruit. Flavour is slightly bitter, but mostly inert. Palate is predictably creamy with little gas left in the light to medium body. Not a bad beer, but a bit boring.

Not as rich tasting as many other irish beers, but always an option in an irish bar or pub. Quite ordinary in colour.

One of the best beers available in Australia, especially on tap. But i have a special spot for this thick, malty sweet stuff. love the texture

Tap, in Irish pub “Tir na nog” in Milano. Red, almost pink with thin white lasting head. Very smooth, low in alcohol. Liked it very much.

It started raining in Copenhagen and found shelter at an irish pub. Guinness I had many times and this was the only other interesting alternative that I never tried. Pretty nice. Very very smooth and refreshing. I really enjoyed it.
