"A smooth, creamy ale." Introduced in 1994 as a 4.8% Irish Ale by Bass at Caffrey’s Ulster brewery, and promoted strongly with an advertising campaign of "strong words softly spoken". Interbrew took over in 2000, soften the recipe and attempted to catch the lager market, using a new promotion of "a storm brewing". Coors acquired the brand in 2002. Initially contract brewed by Interbrew for Coors at Ulster, the brand eventually moved to Coor’s Tower Brewery in Tadcaster.
The ABV was reduced from 4.8% to 4.2% in 2001 and, in March 2010, was further reduced to 3.8%. ABV may vary in export markets.

Pours a finger of head on a hazy darker straw body. The aroma is a nice grain and milk smell. The taste is simple and unoffensive, mild dark fruits and mild bitterness. The texture is smooth and soft. An easy drinking ale.

Light amber with a white creamy head that lasts the whole pint.  Not much of an aroma to speak of. Taste bitter hops, but suprisingly watery. Light body. No personality

danielyabu (1637) - União da Vitória, BRAZIL - FEB 16, 2016
Huge beige creamy head. Excellent lacing. Mostly diminishing. Light-amber, thick, clear body. "Quicksand effect". Aroma: moderate malt and caramel. Initial flavor: moderate sweet very light bitter. Sabor final: light bitter sweet; average duration. Palate: oily texture, medium body, flat carbonation, metallic finish. Beautiful head. Bland taste, slightly malty. 20s

KoNrRiI (1485) - Århus, DENMARK - DEC 8, 2015
0.473 tap. Very hazy, dark gold color and a small, creamy, white head of awesome retention. Aroma of yeasts, nitrogen, and pale malts. Sweet malty taste of bread and what seems like a sweetener. Light body, slick texture, and flat carbonation. Finish is short, sweet, and malty. Overall a very mediocre brew.

Can. Good foam. Aroma: caramel, a little malty. Taste: velvety, caramel and fruits, a bit of hop bitterness, moderately watery.

Keg . Seamus inn , Torquay , Devon. Had this after mackerel fishin on a boat that was rocky as fuck. Cream flow kinda appearance ,honey kissed . Nose of nothing but generic cream. Flavours of toffee ,cream,honey , Apple . It’s not shitty ,just blah and soulless . I thought this would be an Irish Ale on the database but it’s a bull shit Bitter.

Keg from the Cock Inn, Attleborogh. Golden with a big white head. Awful purty. Smells of chemicals. Not a lot of beer scents in there. Tastes of chemical, metal and grain. Thin body. No personality. I think I’d almost prefer it if it were actively awful.

UPDATED: FEB 11, 2017 Good looking pint from can with help from the nitro quite creamy with a bitter middle and sweet sugary end very easy drinking and refreshing

Keg hanging Heaton WMC. Amber good beige head. Light caramel malts aroma taste sweet toffe malts light hoppy bitters. Ok body. Decent keg.

Gurthnar (5816) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAR 7, 2015
Can from Seoul Plaza. Clear golden to amber colour with nice lava effect and a firm smooth head. Unfortunately those are about all the nice things about this beer. The first sip almost made me vomit, end of story. Sterile pasteurised shit.
