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.

on tap in Hong Kong-pours a thick, creamy off white, one finger high head that laces. Dark amber color. Aroma and taste are malt. Minimal carbonation.

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.

baloo (8) - NEW ZEALAND - NOV 23, 2005 does not count
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.

Skinnyviking (7231) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 13, 2005
Draught. Offwhite head. Beautiful red-brown colour. Light bitterness. OK but too few nuances. Maybe served too cold.

bourne (161) - Suwon, SOUTH KOREA - NOV 12, 2005
Light malt aroma with a touch of sweet toffee/caramel. Clear brown-red colour, with good white head. Sweet light malt, hoppy and caramel flavour. Sweet light bitter finish and a bit thin.

larsga (6309) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 1, 2005
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.)
