almost no head, chestnut colour. without a distinctive aroma, mild sweet in taste. Bitterish finish. Easy to drink.

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 (102) - 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 (203) - 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.

jrodooo5 (1171) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - MAY 5, 2015
Taste is bland but it pours pretty & has a nice mouthfeel. Kind of a bubbly brownish pour w/ a beautiful retaining white head thst leaves lacing. The aroma is quite faint w/ really only the nitrogen resembling any scent. The taste is completely clean w/ really nothing going on other than the smoothness on the palate going down. Ehh, wasnít bad after a very warm day in the sun.

LinusStick (2965) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 3, 2015
Not a terrible beer, but nothing great. Aroma sucked. Metal and not much else. Pour was beautiful. Nice burnt amber color with a pillowy one finger white head. Love read beers! Taste was pretty weak. Roasted malt, light caramel and not much else. Very watery. Very mild to no carbonation which was expected given the nitrogen. If I hadnít become a big fan of low alcohol beers this wouldíve been less than 2.
