440ml nitro can poured into a pint

A- pours a clear deep amber color with a two-finger creamy head that has great retention long after the pour

S- toasted grains, bread crust, vanilla cream, honey, some herbal/floral notes to close it out

T- sweet and nutty up front, followed by a honey sweetness, as well as toasted grains, bread crust, vanilla cream, light caramel. Some herbal/floral grassy notes close it out along with more honey sweetness

M- medium body with a creamy and velvety mouthfeel that continues all the way through the finish, high drinkability

O- sometime a simple ale hits the spot, super drinkable and solid for the style

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. Cheers! C-

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.
