On Tap in the only Irish Pub in the area that carries it - Paddy Cassidy's, Cocoa Beach, FL. I enjoy the clear, red-amber pour, the malty sweetness and it's slight bitter taste. (I'm not a fan of sweet-tasting brews.) It's light-bodied enough to be a regular brew for me and anyone that likes ales, especially if you can find it on tap. I've also tried the bottles but definitely prefer a correct temperature pour on draught.
