2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
440ml Nitro Can from SuperValu (Ireland - £1.69):
Bland malts and a little sweetness from some brown sugar, there is a very faint and almost water like smell with some bitterness at the end.
Thick and quite creamy too before settling to a dark caramel brown colour with a very creamy, darkish white head on top that is about the width of a pinky and holds very well.
Bland with some malts and light caramel flavours and a sugary sweetness following this. There is a burnt toast and nutty flavour. The beer is quite bitter and very creamy.
Creamy with a medium to full body yet it still feels slightly watery. The beer seems quite bland and there is almost no carbonation with some small amounts of bitterness at the end.
Great looking beer when poured and settled but everything else about it was fairly average sadly. The aroma was bland and unexciting, definitely not an ale worth looking out for. Iím not sure if it would be better on draft and Iím not sure if I really want to find out either.It was drinkable and the nitro can was a plus.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 12/20
The classic (and most commercial) Irish red, tasted from tap and from bottle. Warm copper colour as custom for the style, creamy, stable head. Caramel and toasted bread in the nose, dried fruits, dry taste with thin and smooth mouthfeel, low carbonation and toasted bitterishness in the finish. Okay for its style I guess, but nothing I can thoroughly enjoy.

330ml bottle from Tallinn. Clear dark reddish brown colour, small frothy mostly lasting off-white head, some lacing. Moderately malty aroma of hay, bisquit and toast with light earthy hops and a fair bit of fruitiness. Taste is initally Lightly sweet with a hint of acidity, turning into a lightly bitter longish finish with a slightly burnt feel. Medium body, oily texture softish carbonation. A fairly avereage but far from unpleasant ale.
