Draught. Poured copper/red with a creamy long lasting head. Malt aromas with a hint of grain. Good malt flavours come through which give way to a nice bitter hop finish.

Can. Beautiful amber color with great head. Very bitter beer style, which owerpowers finere flavors.

Huge head on this beer. Caused by Nitrogen explained my friend Piscator. Had this immediately following the Little Scrapper IPA, so was a bit underwhelmed by it. Still, it was better than i expected.

Hoser (370) - Cowtown, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 3, 2007
There was a period in my life when I used to drink this on tap quite a bit. Nutty with a bit of hops but now I donít drink nitrogen beers. Page 257 of Michael Jacksonís Great Beer Guide only 353 out of 500 Classic Brews to go.

Embrouille (2831) - SWITZERLAND - MAR 1, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 8, 2007 Draught from a local pub. Amber colour. Fairly sweet, malty, with notes of pears, smooth & creamy. Good balance.

On draught. Irish Ale and nitrogen bring out the worst in eachother. Faintly malty, with no complexity. If in the market for a commercial Irish Ale, go with Smithwicks.

wilderthanyou (758) - Guelph, CANADA - FEB 11, 2007
Your typical nitro beer look and smell. Which is, a nice creamy head which sits ontop of a copper body, and practically no aroma to speak of. Tasty beer, though, malty bitter, smooth and creamy. Top notch beer to sit around and enjoy with friends.

mike_77 (3789) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - FEB 11, 2007
A thick, heavy, creamy head tops the clear brown liquid. Almost no aroma to talk of from this nitro-keg pint but the taste is mildly bitter with a smooth malty flavour that is significantly more dominant than the hop. Texture is perfect and it feels like cream in the mouth.

garthicus (2779) - Dublin, IRELAND - FEB 9, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 9, 2007 Very difficult to get on tap in Ireland (despite being an Irish beer) however, well worth having a few pints when found Stronger than Smithwicks and creamier too, a nice afternoon/evening beer to start a serious session on. The nitro cans are also some of the best around.

<Draught at FingerbÝllet bodega> On draught this one looks absolutly amazing. The huge creamy white head makes you wanna eat the beer, but after a few zips you realize the appearance is deceiving. Stanard malty notes and a long unplesant bitter finish. The palate is quite smooth which makes it an overall acceptable beer.
