Lunkie (1418) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - SEP 13, 2005
Strong malt aroma. Clear red amber colour with great head and lacing. Light malt hop flavour. Smooth palate.

Tristan (14) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 7, 2005
Drinkable, aquired taste, although not at par with some other stouts. Not a bad choice however

vanvenlo (1251) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - SEP 6, 2005
5 Sep 2005 (Hunnshof) - Light malt aroma with a touch of sweet toffee/caramel. Clear brown-red colour, with good head and sheet lacing (although manufactured appearance). Sweet light malt, hoppy and caramel flavour. Sweet light bitter finish and a bit thin.

WISEGUY572 (1373) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 31, 2005
When the nitrogen clears its a dark copper with an artificially foamy white head. Not very complex, with a muddy bitter taste like a baby Guiness. Has the same wonderful but artificially creamy mouth feel of all

noattention (20) - California, USA - AUG 17, 2005
Very smooth. In Guinness-dominated Dublin pubs, an alternative if a Guinness proper seems too heavy.

masedawg (156) - Statesville, North Carolina, USA - AUG 14, 2005
Nice amber color with a creamy white head. Goes down relatively smooth and is nice on the palate. Not very complex

Marmite (5) - Sukhumvit Soi 23, Bangkok, THAILAND - AUG 12, 2005 does not count
Bland, boring, bleurgh! It looks like Caffery’s will be gone within a year or two, let’s hope this follows suit.

ToadMan (559) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 3, 2005
On tap in Paris. Rich amber color with a lot of head and lace. Creamy smooth texture with a decent hoppy kick balanced by some sweet matieness. Nothing too complex but a fair amount of flavor, a solid beer.

CamdenD (1094) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUL 31, 2005
I find this beer extraordinarily boring and dull. Perhaps it’s because I’m sick of birra rossa that I can get in Italy, but damn, I just wish this beer had a bit more bite.

Good, basic ale...had it on tap in Ireland and it tasted clean, refreshing, and smooth. Creamy, almost like a cream ale, actually. Drink it before it gets too warm, though!
