Medium copper color. Small white head. Aroma is malty. Grainy and a touch grassy. A medium to light bodied Irish Ale. Malts are slightly nutty and fairly sweet. Hops are slightly spicy. Light and refreshing, and way too sweet. It taste better than the typical American Macro, but not much. It drinkable but kind of uninspired. Mouthfeel is thin. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

JPDIPSO (5381) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 26, 2004
Clear tan color with a moderate head that settles to a tight lid of cream colored bubbles. Nice lace. Light caramel, nuts, and mild toasted malts, The parrts are there, but they do not seem to be working together. Quite thin, but smooth in feel. Light toasty sweetness with a touch of caramel malt. Nice malt linger late in the finish. Not much more than an average amber.

This is a good brew if you like strong ales. Like the stout, it has strong flavor that is not very complex. It is a heavy beer so it is not for leisure drinking. It has a huge creamy head that does not fade. It is a good beer for winter nights, but would not go well in the summer I think.

Timmy (15) - San Pedro, California, USA - FEB 11, 2004
Deep dark amber ale, with a frothy rootbeer-float-like everlasting off-white head. Tastes nutty and dark, slightly hoppy, with a subtle finish that drifts into sweetness.

BigSkyman007 (202) - USA - FEB 5, 2004
Nice creamy head, slight tinge of red in coloring. Flavor hoppy, not overpowering, but just right, like a good ale. Oddly, this beer is brewed by Heineken, which I'm not a fan of, but it's a decent offering.

DrBeer (862) - Solna Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 4, 2004
Brownred beer. Sweet aroma with caramel and salami tones. Some bitterness, then nothing. Like a watered down version of Kilkenny or Dublin Red from Slottskällan. Please stop now.

Brown in color, small, but fluffy head. Not much of a smell... if you dig deep you may find a tiny bit of grass, as well as a hint of smokiness. Smell it? Tastes exactly the same. Good mouthfeel, and average drinkability... nothing special, but drinkable.

Head subsides quickly over a reddish brown body. Sweetish malty nose. Roasted malts with a hint of heavy coffee. Medium body, not bad but neither exemplar.

Why a Dutch brewery is making an Irish Brew is beyond me. The Smell of this impressed me as did the appearance which I thought were both very good. Looks can be deceiving though as the beer seemed harsh and lacked a smooth rich flavor that i expected from this. Still worth a try but it could never become my regular staple.
