amber colour with lace, only a bit of head. Light mouthfeel, creamy and on dry side. Not much taste, but quaffable, in fact quite smooth. Good amount of malt and some carmel. Decent aftertaste though drying. Session ale. Whiff of roast in aroma. 440 ml.

One of my friend at work told me to give a try to that beer because its is favorite. So i was like why not. This beer I found it very particular. The taste is really different than any other that I try its really creamy and the taste powerful but not too strong. For me its not the taste that I like. But in general the smell of the beer is good the texture is also very nice so thats why I would give it a 3.
Would I recommend it ? Its a small Yes .

I had this at Ri Ra at Mandalay Bay in Vegas. A very drinkable Irish ale - soft creamy mouthfeel. Nothing extraordinary but rather tasty. Lightly carbonated and malty - not extremely hoppy. A few hints of citrus bot nothing overt. It has a nice finish. Went perfectly with fish & chips.
