Palme (3605) - Bergen, - OCT 2, 2012
0.4l can @ Bergen Airport. Clear caramel-brown with a really creamy off-white head. Smells light sweet, mild ashy, some faint fruity tones. Not horrible, but not fantastic. Itís soft on the carbonation and it has a mild oily mouthfeel. Light sweet caramel flavors also, some faint cigarette tones with a soft bitter and quite smooth finish and a flour-ish both semi dry aftertaste and really watery and thin. Easy drinking, but flavor wise this has never been a favorite of mine. Nor this time. 05.08.2012

Can. Pours dark amber with a creamy beige head. Mild roasted malt in the taste and aroma. Sweet and a bit watery. Ok.

cmacklin (364) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 23, 2015
440 ml can. Pours a reddish amber with a creamy, medium, long lasting, off-white, nitro head that laces. Sweet, roasted, caramel malt aroma. Flavour to match with a mildly bitter finish. Medium body with a creamy, oily texture and soft carbonation.

shigadeyo (3180) - Harrison, Ohio, USA - MAY 22, 2015
Perfectly acceptably Irish Cream Ale. Itís always creamy on draught (nitro) or from the can; non-nitro version tastes the same, but isnít as creamy. Deep copper color with a large off-white head. Toffee malt in the aroma and flavor, slightly nutty like almond with a bit of vanilla, tea, earthy/herbal hop notes in the finish. Medium-light to medium body; smooth and creamy. Very drinkable and quite easy to drink A LOT of considering it goes down to smoothly and is of low alcohol content. More a less a standard for Irish Ales as itís right on style and widely available.

My favorite Ale type beer. Colour is very dark and aroma is sweet mixed in with raisin and malty bread.

Spina. Bevuta parecchie volte durante il periodo vissuto in irlanda, molto piacevole al palato, anche se forse di poco carattere.

DrGD (103) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 8, 2015
On tap @Dublin. Nice dark amber colour with creamy white foam. Weak aromas of caramel and malts. Taste: caramel and roasted malts, bittersweet. Hint of hops. A bit flat and slightly metallic. Nothing special.

TtV (205) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - MAY 7, 2015
Bottle 33cl. Dark amber with a medium off white head. Aroma reminds me of wood, but thereís also malts and some hops. The taste is bitter with a special metallic undertone. Not too bad, but nothing special.
