Nice full creamy mouth feel. To speak the truth, this is so widespread beer, Iíve gotten a little tired of it. Iíd rather see some other brands once in a while on irish pubs. Actually I still rememnber when you got this carbonated from tap in Finland. I kinda prefered that to the creamy still version.

Light brown in colour. Head was creamy and thick. This Ale was dry hoppy and crisp in taste. Aroma was slightly grassy. Medium bodied with a light-medium bitter finish. Refreshing to drink.

Great looking beer in the glass, darkish with a thin white head that hangs around for the entire glass. Very, very smooth and creamy going down. Certainly lives up to the ícream aleí tradition. The only negative, and it is very small, is a slight bitter aftertaste. I truly enjoy this beer and love seeing it on tap when I enter a new pub.

UPDATED: NOV 16, 2006 Drank at tap and also from a bottle. Great bear! Simply canít get enough of it. Everytime Iím at Hoopman I order at least two pints of them.

TheJester (2197) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 14, 2006
440 mL can. Pours active creamy beige, before settling into a lovely auburn with two fingers of thick head. Aroma has molasses and a hint of citrus. Carbonation is gone from the beer by the time you drink it. Nice balance of bitter hops and sweet roast, although the flavour overall is fairly restrained. Nice creamy texture. Finish is weak and ambiguous. Not bad, but not my favourite Irish.

There was a time that I really liked this beer. That was a time when the only alternatives I knew were mostly CUB $ Lion Nathan products, which doesnít really say a great deal. I still think it is mostly decent though, but Iíd love to try one of those bottles pictured as, like always, the nitrogenation, while providing a lasting head, seems to smooth out all the characteristics of the beer on tasting. Anyway, the roasted malt is quite noticeable in the aroma, with a touch of fruit. Flavour is slightly bitter, but mostly inert. Palate is predictably creamy with little gas left in the light to medium body. Not a bad beer, but a bit boring.

Not as rich tasting as many other irish beers, but always an option in an irish bar or pub. Quite ordinary in colour.

One of the best beers available in Australia, especially on tap. But i have a special spot for this thick, malty sweet stuff. love the texture

Tap, in Irish pub ďTir na nogĒ in Milano. Red, almost pink with thin white lasting head. Very smooth, low in alcohol. Liked it very much.
