RATINGS: 69   WEIGHTED AVG: 2.51/5   ABV: -
The new Irish Cream Ale is a smooth, sweet and creamy brew with a light floral hop nose, malty middle and smooth finish. Poured from a pub faucet with nitrogen and CO2 the ale cascades in the Irish tradition and settles quickly to form the perfect head. Don’t miss out on this brand new beer experience available now. Grain: Based Pale Ale 2-row malt. Caramel malt blend used for less than 20% of grain bill. Hops: Willamette, Hallertau. Relatively low bittering hop levels are used with a larger focus on late addition hops for a light yeast flavor. Additives: Non-fermentable lactose. Lactose is used to provide the creamy, sweet qualities and to aid in head retention when poured. O’Malley’s Irish Cream Ale is ideally served between 42-50 degrees F through a pub faucet in much the same manner a properly served Guinness is poured.

On tap as part of a flight. Yellow/amber in color. Sweeter and a bit more flavor than their lager.

Can. A- Creamy, corn, grassy, malty, watery. A- Amber color, cloudy liquid, white head. T- Cream, sweet corn, malty, wheat. P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, malty finish. O- Bought this after having had their porter which was not a bad porter at all. This on the other than not so much. It was certainly creamy...and malty, corny, and watery. Just a really bland beer. It was not offensive but I’ll leave it.

Can. Caramel malt aroma with a bit of earthiness and clove. Pours slightly hazy golden colored with a thin white head and some lacing. Starts with some caramel malt flavor. Finishes smooth with a bit of clove and light earthiness as well as a bit of creaminess. Decent, but doesn't stand out too much.

Gross. This beer doesn't taste like much of anything. There's really no purpose in drinking this; it's worse than bud light.

12oz can, from Lukas Liquor in Missouri. Sticker-on-can. Mostly clear orange color. Some fine particles suspended in the body. Some reaches of lace. Thin khaki head. Musty, kind of metallic aroma. Light caramel, some light sweaty funkiness up front. Medium body. Smooth, lightly creamy lighter carbonation. Light dry finish. Lightly spicy flavor, some graininess. Decent lightly citrusy earthy hop. Moderate bitter, light to moderate sweet. OK kind of spicy cream ale. Irish-style is an interesting way to do a cream ale, that is interesting. I feel like it could be excuted better, though. Finished the last 2/3 with my sandwich, and naturally it got significantly better.. Raised my scores by 2 points.

Can to half-pint glass (shared with the Mrs; thanks DrSilverworm). Looks solid; a mostly transparent pale copperish orange with foamy eggshell head. Smells of malt and mild hops with a bit of caramel. Tastes like it smells with a touch of grain. A bit of toast too. Decent, but I wouldn’t call it a cream ale. Not at all.

Can; poured an amber color with a whitish head. Aroma of herbs, grain, yeast, and some sweetness. Flavor was fairly dry, but touch of sweetness; grainy and fruity. Not too creamy, but was from can.

12oz can. Pours a clear amber color with a small head that fades quickly with bits of lacing. Aroma of citrus, malt sweetness and grain. Taste of citrus and malt sweetness and grain. Mild bitterness and a clean finish with a bit of lingering sweetness. Light body, clean with a smooth feel. Better beer than I expected.
