Shepherd Neame markets this as coming from ’Casey’s of Waterford,’ meaning Waterford, Ireland, and, coincidentally, I found it in Waterford, Michigan. A touch of skunk in the nose, probably a result of the green bottle but I figure using green is inexcusable enough for me to damn them for it. The brew itself is sweetish, slightly round, mostly mediocre. Oakes (17668) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 6, 2002
A sweet concoction that really doesn’t have much going for it - the flavour is kind of fruity-cidery and not really pleasant, and there is no real roast.
