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.

With a distinct amber color, it’s very creamy, albeit the profile is very timid, as it tries to show off flavors of very light caramel, grapefruit, toasted cereal and hints of dark apricot. There is that syrupy aroma that fits the creaminess of the beer, but its sweet alcohol notes do not fit well with the slightly dry character of the beer. The mouthfeel is nicely creamy for the carbonation, but the aftertaste leaves something to be desired. Overall, this ale has its creamy moments, but it’s very underwhelming. In the US, I recommend the Alleycat from Lost Coast Brewing as well as the Chronic Ale from Port Brewing Company as an alternative.
