4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Toffee and caramel malt aroma, although this is very faint. Looks like a strong espresso - brown color with a frothy head. Basic sweet malt taste, hints of wood and toffee and coffee and other Irish staples, but these are very subtle hints. What stands out the most is the body which is both foamy and watered down at once. The easiest of the Diageo products for sessioning, this is sometimes found as the happy hour beer at some low and high brow establishments. (In NH, of course, where happy hour and happiness in general are still allowed.)

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a deep ruby hue, with a massive nitro cream head. Aroma notes include light malts, tannins, and toffee. The palate is very thin, with tasting notes of light malts, wispy notes of toffee, and dry finish. Overall a very bland, and mediocre beer.

Can. Brown "tea-like" color with long-lasting creamy head, which made with special widget in the can. Some fruit notes in mostly malty aroma. Light-bodied beer. Easy to drink. Even watery texture. Small amount of hops can be distinguished in aftertaste.

Dark amber with a creamy tan head. Served too cold, so the aroma and taste is rather weak. Good mouth feel.

From the start it looks amazing almost like a Guinness but red. The bubbles going down and the final and super stable head created by the use of nitrogen. I expected something else based on how it looks, because the aroma is quite simple, some malt notes but they are really superficial, and not too much hops are perceived. In mouth the sensation is again quite good, creamy texture, really pleasant, but the flavor itself again let down the hole beer, watery, without bitterness or another strong sensation.
