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

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.

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.

Bottle 33cl. Dark amber with a medium off white head. Aroma reminds me of wood, but there’s also malts and some hops. The taste is bitter with a special metallic undertone. Not too bad, but nothing special.

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, wasn’t bad after a very warm day in the sun.

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 hadn’t become a big fan of low alcohol beers this would’ve been less than 2.

The beer has a nice reddish brown color. On top of the beer there floats a layer of white foam as soft as silk. The smell is plain, almost abundant. The taste is also plain...the mouth sensation is boring, there is almost no gas. The taste has some hints of malts and caramel, but not very strong tastes.
