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.

WexFord pours a heavy foam that forms a nice creamy head, after a couple seconds the full amber colored body emerges, I love pour this beer it is very beautiful to watch.
WexFord brings a nice bouquet with notes of caramel malts, mellow and fruity scent,
The mouthfeel is amazing full body and creamy, cereal and caramel malts bring in the traditional english ale flavour. The aftertaste is fruity with mellow notes and with a soft bitterness in the end.

With its creamy body and head, balanced taste and beautiful presentation WexFord is among my favourite beers, it is a unique take on the Irish/English Ales. It is a beer to have anyday and always will be a good experience. I definitely recommend this beer, even if you don't like it, it will be a unique experience.

Reviewed from notes. The appearance was a white film of a head that lasts for a good minute and through several sips, somewhat thick foamy lacing clings to the sides of the glass. The smell was a creamy sort of toffee; lightly fruity, somewhat buttery. The taste had a sweet creamy kind of English malty butteriness, burnt toffee aftertaste with a dry finish. The palate was about a light to medium in body and somewhat sessionable. Carbonation is very smooth and seems to be smoothest I’ve ever had for this style, pretty good to me. Overall, this is quite an easy drinking English, but for me would I have this again, unsure, still gotta say, just like the other ales I’ve had from Greene King - fish n’ chips is all I gotta say.

Poured from a 16 OZ can into a pint glass at the Taco Mac in Atlanta. The appearance is a cloudy yellow color with a large white head. The aroma was creamy malt. An average beer.

Picked up a four pack for some early St. Patty's day festivities with my sister in town for the weekend. Looks the part, with a nice creamy off white head that shows excellent retention. Nose is slightly hoppy with some banana and bread notes but also something a little off.

Again, noble hops drive the taste initially, before giving way to a finish of bread or pizza crust. A little metallic in the mouth at times, but not overly unpleasant. Smooth, and a little lighter on the carbonation than many of the syle. By no means great, I'm glad I tried it and I can see it scratching certain kinds of itches this time of year. On to the stouts.

Very creamy tasting, almost too much so. Goes down quick and smooth. I wouldn't recommend it.
