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.

This beer pretty much solidified my dislike of nitro beers other than dark stuff. Copper pour, perfect white flat head. Aroma of water and nothing. Taste or water and light metal. Thin.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear copper with a thick and dense creamy white head that leaves awesome lacing. Pouring the whole can in one straight bottom up fashion is quite a satisfying show, too. Nose is of caramel and fruits along with a slightly toasted component. Taste of caramel and slight roasted malt, simple but effective. Body is light and carbonation fine and moderate. Mouthfeel is slightly watery but for a session beer itís fine. Overall a good macro option, I shall be back.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
From a nitro can in the Amazing Ales mix pack. Pours a clear rich amber with a persistent half inch of nitro head, looks glorious, taking me back to the days when I drank this in the Irish pubs of Birmingham. The aroma is faintly grassy with some light brown sugar notes to it. Taste is light toffee with a soft hop bite in the background, nothing challenging. The only real problem with this beer, other than the nitro (dear guy why does nitro exist?), is the thinness of the body, itís near watery. A tad more body and it would actually be a very good beer as opposed to just an inoffensive one. Ah well.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
250 ml on tap. Light amber, perfectly clear, with a small, creamy and persistent bright white head. On the nose toasted malts, caramel/toffee, a hint of red fruits. Quite musty overall. Very mild bitterness upfront, bigger sweetness as following and even bigger astringency in the aftertaste. Taste comprises toffee, strangely booze and a hint of sea salt in the background. Rather poor drinkability considering the light ABV. Average carbonation, medium body, oily texture. Ehh, no thanks. Should have gone for a Guinness tick!

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
(Draught in can)Clear classic Irish Ale ruby red colored body. Has the classic "Guinness" style foam head thatís a a good finger thick and appear to be staying for the duration. Creamy malt spice aroma. Low carbonation. Crisp light sweet malt taste. Smooth velvet mouth feel with a faint feel of carbonation on the tongue. Refreshing and wanting more already.
