Was extremely happy with this beer. Had it while at an Irish pub in Canada. The taste was very good and the creamy head (which never dissipated) gave a sweet taste to counteract any bitterness. My first impression that it would be extremely heavy which at the time would be bad because I was about to enjoy a nice Irish meal, but the beer was much lighter than expected. If I could find this stuff in the US, I'd be getting some for the holidays!

Nitro-tap at The Norseman, Dublin, Ireland
A: The beer is clear amber yellow in color and has no visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high creamy off white head that died down but has excellent retention properties, consistently leaving a half finger high head covering the surface and lots of lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Light aromas of pale malts are present in the smell.
T: Like the nose, the taste has light flavors of pale malts. No bitterness is perceptible.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and is very creamy and smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: The nitro-tap makes this beer have an incredible mouthfeel that is both creamy and smooth.
Serving type: nitro-tap
