PGHbeer77 (571) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 9, 2012
Big can. Limited choice on a military base prompted me to try this. So, so. I wouldn’t send it back, but I wouldn’t normally go for it. Brown molasses scent of moderate strength. Hazelnut brown, cloudy pour with pristine white head. Watery feel, slightly creamy, but not what I was expecting by the can or brewer’s description. Nutty molasses flavor, pretty weak.

fdomig (712) - München, GERMANY - MAY 28, 2016
330ml bottle at Müller’s Pub, Hohenems. Aroma is light malt, light raisins. Appearance is clear, dark red to brown with a small brown-ish foam. Taste is light sweet, light sour. Medium carbonation, light dryness. Good.

hauxe (289) - Butzbach, GERMANY - MAY 28, 2016
Pours reddish brown from the bottle. The off white crown fizzes and disappears. A sweet caramel aroma greets the nose. Taste is malty with roasted notes. An initial sourness turns sweeter, with faint honey notes, before ending with a totally uneventful finish. A somewhat stale aftertaste lingers afterwards. The palate is very thin; the carbonation a touch too high. Not something I could picture buying again.

kto (711) - SWITZERLAND - MAY 27, 2016
0.33l bottle from kaisers in berlin.
pours a clear deep amber with a fluffy but quickly disappearing white head and little lacing. mild aroma of toasted malts, caramel, hay. flavour of cardboard, pumpkin, nuts. not too sweet, but mostly because it is just watery -- not too much of anything. fizzy carbonation.

Avetixz (81) - GERMANY - MAY 13, 2016
Aroma of caramel malt, bread, toast, resin, spruce, hops, citrus and some yeast. Pours clear dark amber, red liquid with a foamy white head that disappears quickly. Light to medium sweetness and light bitterness with a flavour of malt, caramel, grains, honey, resin and fresh hops. Light body with below-average carbonation, watery finish.

PintjeFritz (77) - Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - MAY 6, 2016
No information on the labels about the malts and hops in detail. A red clear beer with a short head, fizzy carbonation, very thin and a little malty, finish very short, summary a lot of water, no character for me (I have 0.33l bottle with batch L3003F10808 and best-before 12.2016)

willisread (2036) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAY 1, 2016
Tap at Sullivan’s in Kichijoji. Clear amber pour with 2 fingers of eggshell colored head. Almost no aroma noticeable, if I strain maybe a faint caramel aroma. Water on the palate and thin bodied. Light malty caramel notes. Papery finish. Meh. Standard Irish bar fare.

A watery taste brown ale. Red brown color with a nice long lasting head. Taste of malt and weak caramel.. A good beer flavor water, too watery to be called a beer..

Castanho acobreado para âmbar. Sem turbidez, creme ligeiramente bege, média formação e alta duração. Aroma predomina malte é um leve herbal do lúpulo. Sabor notas de torrado/defumado leve, boa carbonatação, amargor ligeiro e suave no retrogosto. Corpo e leve r refrescante, espera mais pelo estilo e família.

Matwill (86) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 5, 2016
Rating datant du 28 mars 2015. Cream Ale en canette qui a accompagné de façon bien honnête un repas typiquement irlandais. Elle demeure très légère, à la texture crémeuse mais vide au goût.
