I thought this was a domestic version of this but I now see that it is imported from England. It seems that others did not like it nearly as much as I did.

I followed directions so instead of my usual somewhat warmer drinking temperature I opened this very cold. It popped up a nice big head that holds real well. The color is a pretty medium light brown. Very nice in the glass.

There isn't much aroma, but it is clean smelling. The taste is similarly mild - clean and lightly bitter with some of that bitter coming in tones I am not used to - I like it. It's easy drinking and has a clean aftertaste.

This isn't like most cream ales, enough so that I think it is a different category. I think this is wildly underrated. This ale works for me and it is highly recommended as an easy drinking bitter brew.

Smooth to drink and wonderful appearance when poured but uninspiring overall. Liked Old Speckled Hen better, actually. Drank that one earlier.

Can from the Boise Co-op. Nitro can also, so it has a nice pour, smooth and creamy. After that, not so great Extremely musty sweet malt, hints of toffee and caramel, but not enough to overcome the in your face cooked vegetables scent and taste. Haven't had an Irish ale in a while, so hard to judge.

Looks like a nitro beer. Thin line of creamy head atop a calm copper sea of ale. Smells buttery and sweet. Tastes quite the same, very smooth and rich. I tend to enjoy these pub ales more than the next guy. Unless that guy is a Brit or Irishman.
