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.

Jonte (1413) - Gothenburg, - JUL 28, 2008
UPDATED: OCT 2, 2008 Nitro-can. Orange/brown color with a creamy lasting off-white head. Light aroma of fruit, caramel and floral notes. Taste of sweet and lightly toasted malt, caramel, flowers, grain, light citrus. Mild hop bitterness in the finish. Creamy and smooth, way too watery.

Kita (1949) - 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 (136) - 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 (2361) - 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 (353) - 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

danielyabu (1551) - Unio da Vitria, 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 (1264) - rhus, 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.
