Bottle- Deep golden body with an off-white head. Grainy, hoppy aroma. Notable hoppyness in the taste with some maltyness. Not bad but nothing extra.

440ml cans with co2 activator. Lovely creamy low carbonation beer, perfect for cold day. Nice flavour but slightly watery and low alcohol content. Good price for a sixer but this beer could be better, less water to concentrate the flavour or more alcohol to make up for it just to be sure.

Without a doubt the finest foam I have ever come across. The foaming violently during pouring, but rapidly accumulating to a nice reddish ale with persistent white foam on top. The aroma is malty, albeit limited. It tastes fine of hops, malt and some fruit and have a sensible hoppy bitterness. I miss a little more fullness and bitterness with longer duration are also preferable. Otherwise, a good average ale can be used for virtually anything.

colui72 (195) - HONG KONG - JUN 26, 2015
A classic Irish. Lovely appearance with its creamy head. Aroma of not much more than a pint in a pub, but smooth in his mild bitterness. Always welcome in an Irish pub!

Koskela (388) - Marysville, California, USA - JUN 14, 2015
A sweet malty almost raspberry aroma come from this clear deep ruby red brew with a finger of creamy white head. A nice roasted malt flavor sweetness,low carb and smooth flavor and mouthfeel are highlighted from this medium bodied beer. It is very typical of an Irish brew.

Color cobrizo, con espuma muy abundante que se consume con lentitud. Aroma malteado con algo de caramelo. Algo aguada. Sabor malteado con el mismo toque de caramelo que anunciaba en el aroma. Notas de tť. Postgusto dulce. Muy bebible.
