"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.

dhurtubise (568) - Hamilton, Ontario, - FEB 5, 2003
A good Irish cream ale. Served on nitro gives a the signature cascading beer glass. Some caramel on the nose but it's hard to pick up because of the N2. Medium to light body and english hops abounding.

UPDATED: OCT 15, 2017 Pint from tap at Waxy O'Connors. Creamy and smooth red ale. Light in flavour, but exceptional texture.

BeardedAvenger (1478) - Addlestone, Surrey, ENGLAND - OCT 6, 2017
Keg at White Lion, Aldershot. This used to be what i drank at college and uni but can't have had it for maybe 17 years. Caramel sweet malty aroma. Light chestnut. Thick creamy head. Sweet with a light bitterness that gets more noticable intonthe finish. Slightly chemical. Light boied. Thin. Soft carbonation. Abrupt finish. A macro bitter. Drinkable. Preferable to lager. Not too sweet.

danlo (3545) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - SEP 24, 2017
Tap at Victoria Hotel, Robin Hood's Bay. Amber colour, creamy white foam head and grainy aroma. Taste is sweet malty, toffee, boiled sweets, biscuit with light bitterness. Light bodied, soft carbonation, semi-dry light bitter finish. OK.

vinivini (3347) - Gomel, BELARUS - JUN 29, 2017
Clear golden beer. Dense white head. Floral hops on aroma. Addotional yeast. Light body. Biscuit, fruity. Light bitterness.

RobertDale (7183) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - JUN 14, 2017
On tap. Comes a clear golden red with a decent white head. Aroma of malt, grain, and grass. Taste is similar. Easy to drink. Pleasant.

Johnsense (1850) - - MAY 31, 2017
Clear amber pour, very large reverse cascade head (Nitro can btw). Not really much aroma or taste, faint malts, creamy, very light fruit and caramel notes. Not much body to speak of, watery finish.

deanso (10434) - Chiang Mai, THAILAND - APR 21, 2017
Pint at the Institute, Denby Main. Thick creamy white head. Clear amber pour. Served too cold to taste properly.

midovark (1273) - Budapest, 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.

DraftMong1979 (2) - - MAR 17, 2017 does not count
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.

DrNosha (3029) - W�rttemberg, Germany, GERMANY - JAN 2, 2017
Vom Fass. Bernsteinfarbenes Ale, cremiger flacher Schaum. Kaum Aroma. Etwas Säure, Gras und Heu. Apfel und Malz im Antrunk. Leicht säuerlich. Grasiges Finish.
