A nice finger of tight foamy head on a clear, dark straw colored body. The aroma is a rich malty smell. The taste is moderately sweet with a mild bitter finish. The texture is smooth with low carbonation and medium body. A nice, easy drinking ale.

Impressive splendid sight of the dense creamy white foam that stably covers the surface of this Irish ale. The scent is limited, but seems slightly smoky and some fruity. It has a great mouth feel. It is very creamy and hanging long in the whole of the mouth while slightly sweetish fruit tickles in the mouth. This is only briefly before a lightly smoked malt flavor penetrates. Hop bitterness is easy, but appropriate period. This is a very rich and delicious Irish ale, with more bitter undertones than other similar Irish ales.

Aromat bardzo slaby, ale bardzo mi?kki w odczuciu. To samo w smaku, jest wodniscie, ale kremowo. Lekkie toffi. Widget robi cuda z bardzo przecietnymi piwami.

Puszka zawiera jakiś wkład pod ciśnieniem, który powoduje, że piwo pieni się bardzo obficie i kremowo (co zapewnia, że piwo jest takie, jak Oni chcą - wg informacji z puszki). Szkoda, że ta piana szybko opada... Piwo idealnie klarowne, o bursztynowej barwie. W aromacie nieco diacetylu, słód i karmel. W smaku bardzo podobnie. Gaz uleciał prawie zupełnie, goryczka na niskim poziomie. Nic specjalnego...

Puszka z Kerfa. Taki maślany draught. Czuć tam gdzieś trochę tego Irish Cream. Polacy braliby za to piwo 9 PLN. W Kerfie za piątkę.

Copenhagen 6/7 2015. 44 cl can from Meny. Pours beige foam in the Irish way. Settles as golden brown with thick white pretty persistent head. Aroma is both bitter and sweet. Something like glue in the background. Soft carbonation and creamy mouthfeel. Taste is light caramel with a surprisingly sharp sourness. You can argue for the creamy part as there is not much carbonation in cream either. But you sit back with the impression that you just consumed a second rate Kilkenny.

Can from the Boise Co-op. Nitro can also, so it has a nice pour, smooth and creamy. After that, not so great Extremely musty sweet malt, hints of toffee and caramel, but not enough to overcome the in your face cooked vegetables scent and taste. Haven’t had an Irish ale in a while, so hard to judge.

Ciekawe jedynie ze względu na bombę z pianą, wypić można ale łyka z ciekawości, potem już brakuje ochoty.

Spisane z Notatek kiedy Ratebeer był w zeszycie i główne poszukiwania nowych piw i smaków, odkrywanie świata to były głównie piwa zagraniczne, Piwo wypite w 2004 i już nigdy więcej - zdecydowanie wtedy mi nie podeszło, ostatnio widziałem w TESCO i zastanawiałem się czy teraz by mi smakowało jednak nie zaryzykowałem ponownie.....
