Can - draught: Another fantastic Irish beer, best when mixing with Guinness, or let us say: Half and Half. But it is also very recommend to drink solo.

Goes down a little too easy. I just can’t get into the nitrogen bubbles. If you like others, try this, it is fairly pleasant.

I love this beer. Creamy head, a bit too watery to be considered great. But it does a fine job and tastes great on tap. Out of cans it is not as good, but still a good beer.

Draught. Offwhite head. Beautiful red-brown colour. Light bitterness. OK but too few nuances. Maybe served too cold.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: JAN 19, 2006 Initially milky body, but gradually settles into a clear dark chestnut brown under a creamy off-white medium head. Looks lovely. Very faint aroma of sweet caramelly malts. Taste is clean and light, quite sweet, notes of licorice and treacle. It gives way to a faintly bitter aftertaste, with a vague hop taste. Very mild, and not really very interesting. (From can.)
