UPDATED: MAY 18, 2004 Mild sweet aroma. Nutbrown colour with thick white nitro head that lasts. Very mild flavour: sweet malt with a little bit of toastiness. Full body and big mouthfeel due to nitro. Probably wouldn't be as interesting if not on nitro... Can (with widget).

Jahills (151) - Cambridge (Hobart), AUSTRALIA - OCT 23, 2003
Creamy and thick. Plenty of flavour and is smooth as a babies bum. A little dry in the palate, maybe just a little coffee. Great to bury yourself into a pint.

Dark amber colour, thick creamy head with a hint of coffee in the malty taste and a dry finish.It's ok but nothing fancy.

Well I had Caffreys so I didnt have high expectations for this. Is caffreys meant to have a widget? cos mine didnt but kilkenny did. Thick attractive head, pleasant deep orange colour, lacking a bit in carbonation for my liking but overall it goes down nice and creamy. cheers

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 9, 2003
(canned) Orange/copper color. Dense, thick white head. Weak malty aroma. Fizzy in body and flavour. Hints of grass, caramel and hops. Some hoppy notes in finish. Not my style of beer...

Not a bad drop. Can only locate in cans. Not my favourite style of beer, but not bad all the same.

UPDATED: DEC 20, 2003 Tried at an estimated 85 degrees fahrenheit. The bartender gave me this heat in a bottle for only $3. I should've gotten some tea instead.

Great looking beer, good amber colour and creamy head. The flavour is just a bit off. SLightly chemical and a bit bland. A little disappointing really.

Had this in a draught can. Poured amber with i very nice white head. The taste is water with a little sweetness.
