I tried it on a dare and although I have scored it well, one pint was enough.

Maria (10191) - Thisted, DENMARK - JAN 4, 2007
Golden with a nice head and a nice almost creamy palate. The aroma has notes of malt, fruits and hops. Itís a light and nice ale with light notes of fruit, caramel and hops and a nice bitterness that develops in the finish. Uncomplicated and charming.

Anglofile (138) - Piti, GUAM - JAN 2, 2007
Canned Draught with a nitrogen ball: Pours a copper colour with an exceptiona creamy tan head thatís good to the bottom. Aroma: bready malt, a whiff of vanilla-fruity right off. Flavour: Malty with that creamy (yet flat) middle. Fruity cheek finish fading into bitter. I like it quite a bit, but not ALOT.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 1, 2007
Can with a nitrogen ball. Nice apperance, creamy nitro head over a light-brown/amber body. Fizzy. Almost no aroma, slightly sourish and dry malty flavor. Some bitterness in the finish. Light-bodied, smooth and boring.

BelgianBeerGal (3430) - Panama City, Florida, USA - DEC 30, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 31, 2009 Draught. I typically rotate this with Guinness depending on my mood in the standard issue Irish pubs found stateside. Another classic that delivers predictable quality every time.

Much more enjoyable than Guiness, with a floral aroma , even if its a bit watery in the mouthful...

This beer is my favorite. I drink it in Ireland and Canada instead of Guinness. Good on tap and also from cans (poured into glass, of course). It has a great malt flavor, with a nice slightly tart finish.

Simply the best.. At tap and out of bottles as long as you drink it in a glas its great.. but it scuks directly out of the bottle
