1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
What I thought impossible has been realized. For a beer with so much visual appeal it totally lacks in other areas. Thin as a lite beer. Equally as flavourless. Seriously. Expected more from the Irish.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On-tap. Poured in a Weizen-glass (what a shame:). Mesmerizing ruby-amber sparkling body, covered by an ASTONISHING relentless creamy off-white head.
Smells very smooth: bready malt, nutmeg and soft roasted scents - all dissolves in a huge tender vanilla-blur. Moderate hops bouquet.
Going down to taste. It’s a bit difficult - want to call it balanced, but on the other hand something is missing here - some void just inside of this flavour. Caramel notes present..
Mouthfeel was even more disappointing - thin and watery with sleepy carbonation. Some echoing bittery hops brighten up boring dry finish.
I’ve tried to be as objective as possible here, but after that amazing appearance i’ve expected much more subconciously. Summing up - it’s the SMOOTHEST beer I’ve ever tried)

On tap at The Dubliner Irish Pub. Creamy longlasting head, beige color. ,malty aroma and taste dominate this beer. The finish bitter. Very refreshing. It has become one of my many favorites.

A light creamy ale with a smoky aroma. Keeps a strong head. Lacks slightly in flavour, but a great alternative to stout in ROI!

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Can 44 cl, Draught with nitrogen. Pours amber color with white brown smooth creamy head. Notes of caramel, toffee, some roasted malts, slightly metallic (probably because beer too cold), toast. Lacking in body and character and is slightly watery. Goes down smooth creamy, very easy to drink.

Poured a clear medium amber with a frothy off white head. Aroma of sweet caramel malt. Medium, creamy body, flavour as the aroma, slightly over sweet.

Une bière sympa, mais un peu triste pour les soirs de fêtes, elle ressemble peut être trop à un truc de fin de soirée avec des gars alcoolisés chez toi que tu connais pas. A ne pas boire trop frais (signe que c’est pas si dégueulasse que ça)

Red-brown with excellent creamy head. Light to medium body. Malty aroma with notes of caramel. Sweet & biter taste. Smooth finish. Nice brew.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Nitro draft to taster. Looks fine; settles into a transparent gold with creamy nitro head. Smells of dough, malt, and light roast. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Eh.

Tap. Pours a clear red color. Taste of malt, caramel, a bit of fruit and yeast. Smooth and classic - a bit hard to define - it's a beer that's good and recognizable but doesn't really have any distinctly memorable features. Still, I love it. :)
