Aurelius (4125) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 8, 2002
Woody brown beer, white head, good bottle. Dry, nutty-bitter. Medium finish. Liked the Irish Amber better.

AceOfHearts (1375) - Mountain View, California, USA - DEC 8, 2002
Crystal-amber color, big foamy head. Malty, slightly skunky aroma. Bland, wet-cardboard mouthfeel. A little bit of a malty kick to the finish, but nothing special.

thebaron99 (110) - Royston Park SA, AUSTRALIA - NOV 9, 2002
Nice grassy malts in Aroma and flavour. Thin texture but depth of palate is good with strong cloying graininess in the finish. Light filigree lacing. Slightly skunked. Will buy again for $2:50Aus 330mls.

My personal choice for an Irish beer. Similar to Killians, but better yet, since it is ofcourse actually made in the Emerald Isle. I had it at Greek bar though, which was okay, but I would prefer drinking it at an Irish Pub to enhance the atmosphere.

The beer soon has a flat appearance after an initial head. Slightly fruity flavour but the beer is more acidic and watery than hopped. Quite poor.

madsberg (10144) - Søborg, DENMARK - OCT 26, 2002
On tap: The colour is dark amber. Theres not much aroma and flavour in this. Very disappointing. There are some notes of caramel, but the taste is light and veak. Couldn’t finish my glass. Had to have a Guiness.
