Had this on tap and loved it probably one of my favorite beers ever so easy to drink. This cream ale pours a nice ruby red with a little yellow in the light. Nice white two finger head with a one finger that lingers. The smell is nice of roasted malts and cream just smooth all around. The taste is of malts and smoothness if that is a taste a bit watery if you concentrate to hard. A great offering for this style and good job for a Guinness brew. The mouthfeel is smooth and carbonated with just a little fizz nice and easy to take down a really nice session beer with the low ABV what a great brew to just sit back and enjoy with friends. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

16 oz nitro can. Pours a pretty reddish brown with a very creamy cascading head. Flavor is mild malt forward with a dash of hops in the finish to balance. True to style, this is a sessionable Irish Ale. Would not withstand heavier food flavors.

16 ounce nitro can. As of this moment the 8th most rated beer I have not personally rated. Pours a clear amber with a large, dense tan nitro head. Good head retention. Aroma of caramel and floral hops. The taste is caramel, floral hops, citrus, tea and toasted malt. Thin bodied.

it was ok, but the flavor was kind of dull. There was basically no resistance and no chance to savor it. But it was good.

loubar (112) - Los Gatos, California, USA - JAN 23, 2015
Pours a dark red color with quickly dissipating creamy head, a bit of which stays to the end. Very faint grain and malt aroma. Flavor is light caramel, nuts, milky-smooth and pleasantly malty. Medium body with low carbonation leads to a silky and creamy mouth feel that continues into a velvety finish. Subtle, but enjoyable and super drinkable.

440ml can into pint glass. Nitrogen widget goes off! Very slight sweet aroma. Good solid cream head on still red/amber beer. Taste is slightly bitter. Gentle smoky malt finish. Very sessionable.

Nitrogen can. Red amber color with a typical creamy nitrogen head. Aroma is either very faint or hidden by the nitrogen head but I had a hard time picking up more than faint grain and malt. Flavor is cereal malt up front and light herbal hops. Light to medium bodied with a slippery, almost watery mouthfeel. Finishes up with a creamy finish. Not the top of itís class but I would definitely take another one.

Pint. Settles into a dark reddish colour with a thick creamy head. The texture is creamy and the flavour has some slight roasted malt. It is a little watery but pleasant and smooth

Yet another almost flavorless, flat feeling, thin and watery example of why the nitro ball is a bad idea. This one looks really cool when poured into a glass but that is about it. Cream colored brew with thick creamy head. Aroma and taste are about like a cream soda. Not much carbonation feel and is thin and watery. So itís about like drinking a cream soda that sat overnight on ice and is now flat and watered down.
