Review from BeerAdvocate Magazine Issue #33 (Oct 2009):
Clear and copper, typically great nitro head. First whiff is of a bustling movie theater con- cession stand, buttery with some caramel in the back. Nitro smoothness is a given as the widget in the can rattles about. Just as much buttery tone in the palate as the nose, though there is enough caramel and bready maltiness to match it. Leafy herbal hop simply quells any cloying urge from the malt. Malty finish that lands a little toasted.
Aside from the nitro, which we don't mind the use of that much, this is a really tasty beer. Throw this against a plate of bangers and mash ... heavenly.

Presentation: 1 pint nitro can with widget system, no freshness date to be found.
Appearance: Lightly hazed amber with a forced nitro head … it looks very appealing.
Smell: Caramel and buttery twang in the aroma with a faint hop in the back.
Taste: Big nitro smoothness that feigns a body bigger that it actually is, after the nitro leaves the palate it becomes a bit thin. Malt flavour seems displaced with caramel and bity grain thrown to the wind. Hops are all used up and seem like they were boiled for hours upon hours drawing some astringency. More caramel and some fruitiness flashes in the end then the astringent dry effect takes over an forces you to drink some more to get rid of it.
Notes: Give me a Caffrey’s in a can any day over this … oh yeah it is not available in the US anymore, I guess I have to go else where for an Irish Red. Not a horrible brew but I ask why even try this processed brew.

It came in a nice can. I like the cans appearance. It's golden in color with very little head. I might have kept it in the freezer too long. Had a little ice. Roughy an hour and a half. It had very little smell. Taste is decent. Expected more from a creme ale. Not bad though. I would drink this beer again.
