Wexford Irish Style Creme Ale

Continuing right along with my Celtic theme, I picked this one up in a big ole' can because I can't resist a (near) pint of beer from Ireland (Wexford is located in the lower eastern part of the island, about 2 hrs. south of Dublin)

This brew pours thick and creamy, almost like milk, and begins to cascade up the glass just a Guinness. The beer fades to a honey amber color and smells very frothy and sweet. At first taste, I am reminded of Boddington's, but this is a little bit better and even more creamy. The brew is pretty mellow and has some nuttiness to it, which makes for a perfect draught beer. I would have loved to try this on tap!
