Looks like a nitro beer. Thin line of creamy head atop a calm copper sea of ale. Smells buttery and sweet. Tastes quite the same, very smooth and rich. I tend to enjoy these pub ales more than the next guy. Unless that guy is a Brit or Irishman.

This produces a very handsome looking beer
it would be what you would put on telly
the downside is very artificial flavour aspects and little aroma

Outstanding cream ale. Almost tastes like butterscotch at first . Perfect for all Irish holidays. Don't tell your friends it's English made.

Pours a clear medium amber with a dark ruby cast. Normal head, lacing and retention after the foamy rush of the nitro widget.

Light nose of caramel with just a hint of earthy hops. As it warms, subtle buttery notes are evident.

Light medium bodied with a very smooth texture that approaches creamy. Under carbonated with no effervescence.

The flavor profile is reasonably intense, not complex and is poorly balanced. It begins with a non-sweet caramel note that is almost covered by grainy undertones. The middle is slightly bitter and has an earthy hop flavor that seems stale. The finish is slightly astringent and that stale hop flavor lingers. Stale hop flavor dominates this one, and not in a good way.

Wexford is beyond smooth, and very easy drinking. Watching this beer cascade is just beautiful. Definitely a new favorite

Beautiful pour. Light brown with a reddish gold hue and extremely dense creamy head...which is to be expected with these "draft pour" type nitro cans. Reasonably good malt nose and flavor, but definitely not meant to overwhelm anyone's palate...okay, we'll say bland. Obviously intended to be a pub drink that can be knocked back for a while. At 5%, this is a little more substantial than some other similar offerings, but it still lacks flavor and mouthfeel. Disappointing. Although I wasn't expecting much to begin with the pour and nose made me think it might be better than it was.

This is just not a good beer. I can't place the taste that it reminds me of just kinda sweet watered down and just no.
