Wow, I cannot believe this beer rated as poorly as it did! I truly find this a very unique brew.

Its the 'other' Guinness draught being lighter in color, and yet not any less interesting. Its flavor is very mellow, yet rich, and its overall creamy texture make the beer allot of fun to drink.

Its bubbles cascade just as Guinness draught's does...

I purchase this beer after the holidays in January, and consume it through early spring. I will report back later with a more detailed, definitive review of this beer.

Poured from a draft into a 20-oz. imperial glass at Hooley’s in La Mesa, Calif. Color was pale honey orange. Tons of head on the initial pour, the most I’ve seen of all the beers I’ve rated so far. Plenty of cloudy, frothy lacing on the top. Cloudy, creamy film on the sides.

Smelled of caramel bitter malts. Reminded me an awful lot of a pilsner. A tad bit buttery.

Initial taste was creamy and bitter up front, giving way to a smooth aftertaste. Bitter finish on the tongue after. Had an apple taste in there as well.

Medium body. Creamy texture. Soft-to-average carbonation. Long and bitter finish. Smooth.

I wasn’t that big of a fan of this beer, especially as the beer went on.
