Smooth golden lager with a quality taste. Ill take it over any almost any American lager any day. Good mixed with Guinness too. crdic (105) - California, USA - JUN 15, 2002
Nothing really distinctive about this one. It’s a beer. Not a particularly bad one, nor particularly good. michaelm18 (118) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 15, 2002
Crisp, refreshing beer with medium hoppiness and body. bubslang (438) - Kentwood, Michigan, USA - JUN 13, 2002
I am not a lager fan, but this is about as good as it gets, there is actual malt and hop presence here. Probably one of the best beers of its style Brew4Dug (139) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUN 6, 2002
Always enjoyed this beer, until it lost some of its brewing roots and began being produced in Canada. Still a credible Irish lager. Good in a half-and-half.

The famous Irish ’Lager’ is chock full of sulphur notes. What’s the point? Lagering should reduce the sulphur. You may as well brew it as an ale if your going to put it out with these fermentation characteristics. IneedAbuheer (69) - Ingleside, Illinois, USA - MAY 24, 2002
Decent, crisp lager. Slightly bitter with a clean flavor. ElGaucho (2401) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - MAY 20, 2002
Medium caramel malt aroma. Don’t think I’ve ever seen so many carbonation bubbles in a beer. It’s almost like champagne! I expected a thicker head from the makers of Guiness; nevertheless a well above average head and fantastic, frothy white brussels lace! Like Boddingtons, this is a European brewmaker’s attempt to appeal to the American, fringe, wannabe beer connoisseur. Unlike Boddingtons, this one has the redeeming quality of flavor. leaparsons (10554) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 18, 2002
Not as disasterous as some rival efforts (hello Fosters, Bud et al). There are actually hints of malts and hops here! Average. foduck (330) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 17, 2002
Not bad for a beer they sell at the pool hall. I was feeling A-OK after about 4 of these. Somewhat bitter, overall clean tasting.
