COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Keg, pasteurised, regular;
This authentic Irish Ale dates back to 1810 from Co. Wexford. Brewed to an original family recipe using Irish malt and hops, Wexford has a smooth mellow creaminess we believe you will enjoy.

440 ml. can. Clear, amber colour with golden hues. Thin, creamy off-white head. Sweet aroma with toasted malts, caramel, fruits, toffee, some earthy hops. Taste is light sweet. Light to medium body with a creamy texture and a soft carbonation. Finishes drying with toast, caramel malts and fruits. A bit muted in the flavour - nitro?

Can. Pours clear amber. Two fingers of nice, creamy, nitro head. Weak aroma - metallic notes with some apples and caramel. Watery and dry. Bland.

kamwitsta (116) - POLAND - JUN 30, 2014
UPDATED: JUL 4, 2014 Not very strong, malty and metallic aroma at first, but later it turns into coffee, fruits, whisky and a little alcohol. The colour of dark amber, small head that is quickly reduced to a ring, and stays for some time in this form. Lightly bitter, just a slight hint of sweetness. Light body, nice and creamy, effectively flat, lightly bitter finish. Not a celebration beer perhaps, but a rather enjoyable, rather drinkable one; very slightly reminiscent of Irish coffee.

pkbites (673) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 19, 2014
Can. Dark amber/slight orange pour. Cream colored head dies quickly but leaves a thin layer for the duration. Very low carbonation. Light nose. This has a thick, creamy mouth feel. Moderate hops linger in the aftertaste a good long time. Flavor is mild and pleasant. This is very enjoyable. Nice job!

It pours slowly and extremely foamy with an abundance of tiny tan bubbles. After a minute or so, the bubbles settle on top of the beer which is a lovely honey amber colored liquid. The head that forms is supper creamy, slightly oily and light tan in color. The lacing slides down the sides of the glass just above the head. It has a pleasant malty aroma of sweet buttered bread and honey. There are light aromatic hops off in the back ground. The palate is very smooth and creamy in texture. Malt flavors taste of buttered bread and soft unsalted pretzel with a light caramel sweetness. It’s so smooth and buttery that it becomes rather bland and watery in the middle. It finishes with a mild herbal hops bitterness and some light mineral/metallic notes.

Bif (1386) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 7, 2014
Can Pours a clear copper color with a nice nitro head and good lacing. Mild aroma with malt, bit of grain and nut. Taste of malt, grain and milk. Mild bitterness and a clean finish. Moderate body, smooth and creamy. Decent beer for the style.

scotchzombie (317) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - APR 21, 2014
Pours copper and mostly clear with a glacially creamy off-white head. A nice-looking beer. Aroma is corn and malt. Taste is corn and malt as well, plus milky flavors. There is a closing hop bitterness as well. Not the best balance of malt and hop pegged around milk, but it is smooth, drinkable and distinctive. I'd probably prefer a Guinness or a Fuller's ESB.
