UPDATED: NOV 30, 2012 I had really high hopes for this beer so maybe that is why I found it to be extra disappointing. The overall feature of this beer without a doubt to me is BLAND. Nitro pours beautifully into the glass with a pale copper hue. Creamy white head and then....nothing. It is so watery and bland it is truly unbelievable. Like drinking water. Super weak. I guess it helps to quench your thirst? There I said one good thing...

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.

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.

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.

440 ml can. Pours a reddish amber with a creamy, medium, long lasting, off-white, nitro head that laces. Sweet, roasted, caramel malt aroma. Flavour to match with a mildly bitter finish. Medium body with a creamy, oily texture and soft carbonation.

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.

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.
