2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Time to rate this beer that isn't even available in the US, according to its description. Apparently that excludes common supermarkets in Illinois! Anyway, this beer starts with a medium carmel color and large, slightly off white head. Aroma is fairly weak, in this case, and not overly attractive. Flavor is lightly malty and SLIGHTLY bitter with a mild dry finish. This is drinkable, but not anything great, by any stretch of the imagination.

Main reason I tried this was it was in the cold section and I hadn't tried it yet.
It was good! A nice surprise

Stick with the cream stout. This came off thin with a mild taste. I'm still trying to recall why I bought this beer.

A little creamy and smooth. The malts are faintly present. Not much else to say about this beer.

Now see, I have to disagree with the gang again. My Murphy's Red poured out of the bottle nice and creamy of head. It is a true red beer (by the looks of it) and tasted rich and sharp. Perhaps my bottle was the exception but it was a good drink. A truly mature beer-not for the meek.

Sampled draught (nitro) at The Scotsman, St. Julians, Malta.
Brownish amber with creamy head. Sweet and creamy, fruity and roasty. Drier grassy finish with some bitterness.
