massingasetta (169) - MŁnchen, GERMANY - MAY 18, 2014
Irish Cream Ale is certainly not my speciality - Killkenny is almost a good alternative for Irish Stouts when in Ireland. A creamy yet not so heavy beer.

Nitro draft pour. Dark amber color with thick cream head. Little flavor in this one besides cream. Overall not bad, just lacking flavor.

artyom (426) - Osijek, CROATIA - MAY 12, 2014
0,33l bottle. Light brown color with tanned head. Aroma is toasted malt and caramel. Taste is sweet with slight bitterness from roasted malt. Medium body and soft to average carbonation. A little bit watery. Overall itís pleasant and easy drinkable beer, but nothing spectacular.

Just my point of view but I hate the test of this beer. Defintely not for me.

scotchzombie (317) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - MAY 10, 2014
Pours fairly dark brown with a very smooth and creamy white head that forms a nice thick coating. Aroma is grass and grains. Taste is roasted barley, a touch of caramel malt and some bitter hops to close. Aftertaste is better. A decent quaff on a hot day here in Busch Gardens Ireland.

PeatyPete (358) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 9, 2014
Amber coloured beer with quickly vanishing head. Malty aroma. Taste is malt and a little bit sweet.

DruncanVeasey (7112) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - APR 28, 2014
UPDATED: APR 30, 2014 Tap, The Punter, Vilamoura, Algarve. Nitro thick collar on bronze. Some aroma; wax, dried fruits, plum at a push. Soft neutral rust, sultana and breakfast cereal flavour with weak oak and date-expired dull brown bottled Belgian. Not hideous but less exciting than a glass of water. Or a wadworths Spoonsfest effort.
