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.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught, small head, clear copper colour, gentle malt aromas, strong malt flavours with caramel and fruitiness appearing behind, later turning into sourness which is a little strange and not appealing as an aftertaste, all acompanied by good bitterness. All in all, an excellent session beer, smooth and easy to drink, though not that complex.

UPDATED: NOV 24, 2007 Can 440 ml. One of my favourites. Looks great, smells good too. Flavor lasts throughout, tastes pleasantly malty.
Slightly higher re-rate as the one Iím having right now is delicious and watching it settle after pouring was so satisfying.

If it wasnít for actual photographic evidence this beer would have been lost forever. Thin mouthfeel for an irish ale, light rust colour, creamy yet watery, I am sure its better on tap though, look forward to re-rating on draft one day til then, crap in a can!

One of my favourite beers and drink it most frequent. I love the amber colour, the thick white head, the fact that as soon as you open the can the head canít wait to splooge out all over the place, the creamy texture an the wonderfully smooth after taste. If you drink it in a glass, I find it tastes a lot better and you can truly enjoy the beer with out the widget rattling around inside like a childís toy.
