Poured from 440ml can into glass. This one has the pressurized widget for the cascade effect.
Final effect is clear, amber colored body, with a creamy, off white head. Leaves behind a film of lacing.
Aroma of bready malts, along with a sweet pear and nutty smell.
First up in the taste are the bready malts, and then the sweet pear comes in. No bitterness.
Very creamy mouth feel. Good carbonation.
Good cream ale, not great, with the malts and the fruity hops working together.

Just an FYI that may be a good preface here, I'm a big fan of Murphy's ... I LOVE Wexford Irish Cream Ale. I drink it strait from the can and find it to be super smooth, creamy and has a perfect sweet malt overall taste. from initial start to finish. The flavor is very consistent throughout(which I like) and finishes how it starts; damn tasty. SO smooth with great feel.. It may sound odd, but it skips the tongue and it's almost like the rest of your mouth has the taste buds.

This is not okay this is one of the worst cream ales I ever tasted. This is close to undrinkable. I would not give this beer to my worst enemy. D- (60-64) score range

Enjoyed with a plate of oranges, lemons and chunks of dark chocolate.

Pours a nice amber, after it finally settles, a most 'easy on the eyes ' process. Vast, willowy lacing and an abundant head.

Smooth and creamy as you please, an earthy-herbal, golden ghost horse floral affair, yet with rather deep bread & butter-malt roots. Dry finish, with an elegant herbal aftertaste, lingering between gulps.

It helps to take a step back from the technical merits, and appreciate her generally Emerald aura.

440 ml nitro can into imperial pint glass, canned on 12/21/2016. A beautiful nitro cascade. Pours fairly crystal clear deep golden amber/light orange color with a 1-2 finger dense and creamy cream colored head that lasts the whole glass. Thick soapy lacing coats the whole glass as you drink. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of honey, cracker, biscuit, and lightly toasted bread; with lighter notes of nuttiness, caramel, pear, apple, herbal, floral, grass, pepper, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of bready malts and light earthy hop/fruity yeast notes; with solid strength. Taste of big honey, cracker, biscuit, and lightly toasted bread; with lighter notes of nuttiness, caramel, pear, apple, herbal, floral, grass, pepper, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Very slight diacetyl in the aromas and flavors, but hardly noticeable. Mild herbal, grassy, spicy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of honey, cracker, biscuit, lightly toasted bread, light nuttiness/caramel, herbal, floral, grass, pepper, and yeast/toasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of bready malts and light earthy hop/fruity yeast flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and zero lingering hop astringency after the finish. Slightly increasing dryness from bitterness. Mild carbonation and medium body; with a very smooth, creamy/bready/grainy, and slightly silky/sticky balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 5%. Overall this is a very nice cream ale. All around nice complexity, robustness, and balance of bready malts and light earthy hop/fruity yeast flavors; very smooth and easy to drink with the nitro finish. Very flavorful with nice clean malt flavors and restrained hop/yeast notes. A very enjoyable offering, and spot on style example.

Pours very foamy and has the thick feel of Guinness. The color is a golden orange, however. Notes of malt and toffee. Finish is woody with a warming alcoholic note, almost like whiskey.

Poured into a Pint Defiance tulip. The body is dark red with a thick and creamy white two finger head. Aromas consist of toffee, marshmallow, some indistinguishable fruits, and biscuity malts. Flavors are the same. The feel is extremely smooth, but has light carbonation due to the nitro widget.
