Had some in an irish bar. It's not bad, but it's like a creamy water. Almost no carbonation mouthfeel, but plenty of creaminess from the nitro. Has very little taste to it.

If you like Smithwicks but wish they made a cream ale then this is what you are looking for, it has the taste of Smithwicks with a wexford creaminess to it. Salante

Smooth low alcohol beer. Briliantly clear with persistent white head. Served on nitro has a smooth mouthfeel with low bitterness. Good irish red beer.
