1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
This pours golden which very much surprised me for an Irish beer. My bottle did not say it was a lager so I was expecting an ale and this disappointed me much. I smelled bread when I got a whilff of the aroma. It is very carbonated and dry. White head. This one is not one I’ll remember. Maybe o.k. for an after mowing beer but budweiser is about the same and much cheaper.

Pours a clear slightly orange color, no head. Aroma is malty, a bit of apple. Flavor is dry, and thin, very carbonated, with slight malt overtones . Thanks for JCapriotti for this one!

Very thin white head. A few bubbles come up in my lager glass. A thin white head. Aroma of earthy vegetables. Carrots and some hay. The flavor is light and refreshing. Notes of hay and some sweet beets. A hint of green beans. A decent lager, finishes a little sweet.

1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Soapy white head, pale yellow. Light perfumey corn aroma. Nasty taste. Not MGD nasty, but blah with stale paper.

I could smell the corn when I popped the bottle. It poured a rich yellow color, but its head disappeared as I poured. The aroma was of sweet corn syrup. Very little malt flavor, just the syrupy sweetness and a touch of hops. Sticky finish.

Pour is yellow with a white head. Aroma is very corny and you can guess what the flavor is like. Corny as well and very bland. There are other better beers in Ireland than this swill.

Light piss color. Small white head that dissipates quickly. Not particularly bad tasting, just weak and not much taste at all.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Golden yellow with a big ol frothy head. Little bit of lacing as I drank it down. Light on flavor but y, ou probably guessed that, a good thirst quencher. But really, if you’re in the States and want something like this, you might as well pick up some Labatt’s or something for the price of this import, you could get a 12 pack,

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle: Aroma is the same as all other pale lagers. Pours a transparent yellow with a large bubbled white head that is gone quickly. Weak malt, light hops, light skunk. Ireland’s version of Budweiser I guess.
