COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pasteurised nitro-keg and nitro-can beer.
May alse be / have been produced at Tadcaster.
"A smooth, creamy ale." Introduced in 1994 as a 4.8% Irish Ale by Bass at Caffreys 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 Coors 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.

Pint at the Institute, Denby Main. Thick creamy white head. Clear amber pour. Served too cold to taste properly.

midovark (809) - Balassagyarmat, HUNGARY - APR 18, 2017
On tap with nitro. Pours deep golden with everlasting head. Very slight fruity-biscuits aroma and some biscuity taste with quite watery mouthfeel. Extremely light bodied and softly carbonated and hence easily drinkable. Mediocre.

Easy drinking ale. Malty taste and a little caramel in aroma. Draught is superior to can by a long way. Session ale, to be drank easily whilst imbiding the Craic. Said Craic will include, music, women and dancing.

Kita (2073) - Koper, SLOVENIA - OCT 8, 2016
Draught, pint. Clear amber color with thick creamy white head and soft visible carbonation. Aroma of toffee, grass, flowers and spices. Taste starts with moderate sweet toffee and toasted malt, follows by dried fruity note and herbal, mouthfeel is smooth, while finish is mild bitter. Light to medium body, creamy texture and soft carbonation in palate. Rated from the past, one of my first non lagers...

schavuitje (193) - APELDOORN, NETHERLANDS - JUN 22, 2016
Geel rode gloed nauwelijks c02 of schuim op de koppige nep smaak van donker mout ontbreekt elke smaak en krijg je een vieze droge mond

Fatehunter (2520) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - MAR 31, 2016
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.

ChadPoole (444) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 5, 2016
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
