RichardGretton (4277) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 28, 2002
Smooth beer similar to an English bitter but with a frothy palate. Overall a plain beer that needs something more to stand out as a drink.

Golden, same old nitro look which may impress the first time one ever sees it, but later warns of a watery beer. Thin, sweet, touch of piney hops in the finish. No good.

Yeah, pretty decent beer overall. Good flavour, reasonable aftertaste. Not bad.

Pretty good stuff. The draught carbonation really works out for me. Too bad I had to go to Montreal to get this. I seriously didnít drive all that way to buy Canadian beer. Really. Kilkennyís one of the best ones I brought home. Rich, creamy and irish.

iwantalambic (1478) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - SEP 29, 2002
Dark brown with a creamy dark beige head. I like the flavour, creamy and slightly bitter. This creamy beverage brings me many great memories from Australia and Europe, I wish we could get in America. Though I wish we could have a Guiness Brewery here as well.

Ingevara (811) - SWEDEN - SEP 28, 2002
UPDATED: APR 11, 2003 This one really have most of what I expect from a good beer, Flavor, aroma color, fruit, bitter- and sweetness. That goes for the draught on tap, the bottlet beer has a very disturbing side taste of liquorice that distracts me from really enjoying this beer.

Roli (405) - laval, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 27, 2002
UPDATED: MAY 27, 2003 Humm creamy, its sweet. Got to be the sweetest beer I've drank ... and I love cream ale. Well, when they are draft.

Truly an underated beer

dhurtubise (568) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 18, 2002
Slight malt aroma but subdued largely because of the nitro. Rich brown colour with a thick creamy tannish head. It is a roasty, nutty full bodied, full flavoured beer that finds a good balance with hop bitterness. The finish is creamy and smooth and easy.

Radek Kliber (6519) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - SEP 14, 2002
Boring example, very weak aroma. Watery feel, with slight bitter aftertaste. So boring I do not know why they make such stuff?
