UPDATED: FEB 18, 2009 Very drinkable and somewhat similar to Smithwicks if it met boddingtons. Had this in Kilkenny quite a while ago, i plan to buy this again if i see it around and rerate.

I really dont like irish ales and this was no exception, they just have a weak flavor with metallic tastes, almost all of them that ive had

Iíve tried this one in two versions. On tap, and a bottled version called "red beer". This rating is a average of both. Yet the tap style is more strong and heavy, can be as refreshing as the bottled version. Good irish beer.

Alla spina al Britannia Pub, per fare compagnia agli amici piý che altro (le bottiglie le ho giŗ provate tutte); colore rossiccio non troppo scuro, con scarsa schiuma candida. Aroma quasi impercettibile ma piuttosto dolce, sapore simile; una delle birre piý insipide che esistano al mondo.

1.9 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours like a landslide and has a bubbly nitrogen induced cream colour fading to dark brown amber. Has a proportionate thick and creamy off-white head. Smells sweet with a hint of caramel and tastes similar but with a creamy bitterness in the finish and aftertaste. The Mouthfeel is silky and flat. No carbonation.
An the plus, it is a joy to open the can.

Why isnít this listed as a cream ale? Itís in the description!?!? Smell is kind of funny, but looks great. A dry flavor is evident from the start, with a light amount of creaminess. Pretty good, just a bit dry.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught from Stortoget in Lund. Nice looking beer: dark amber brown with a nice creamy off-white nitrogen head that lasts and leaves some lacing. Aroma is a little malty, a little grainy and bready. Flavor has a nice balance of bitterness and maltiness with a good medium body and creamy texture. Slight bitternes in the finish, but overall, hops are restrained. Decent, but not great.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
0.33l bottle. Mine was 5% vol., probably import for continental Europe. Really nice look, dark red body with big ivory head...medium carbonation. Slight aroma of mixed sweet caramel malt and floral hops. Flavor is very weak too, so water and almost non existent I could drink it in two sips. Palate not bad, but not a long finish...watery again. A big disappointment indeed.

Off the tap in Kilkenny, where this beer was actually kind of hard to find. Creamy off-white head. Light red body. Metallic aroma. Slightly bready. Pretty watery for an ale. Some malts are present. Smooth and easy to drink.
