Orginal Wexford Irish Style Crème Ale

Ireland is known for two things Whiskey and beer. There are a few different Irish beer styles. The most popular is the dry Irish Stout, such as Guinness. Which is probably the largest Irish beer band in the world. Well we have Original Wexford Irish Style Crème Ale 5.0% ABV and is brewed by Greene King Brewery in St. Edmunds, Suffolk England, and it’s has one similarity to some Guinness products, it has a co2 widget in the pint can. This is called the draught can. The c02 widget in the can is like having canned beer like it was from a pubs tap. All the widget is, is a small round sphere the size of a Ping-Pong ball filled with co2 and one, two, or three little holes on it to release some of the co2 into the can during pouring and creating a beer like you’d have from a pub tap. Wexford pours a copper color with a very thick, tight, and creamy white head that looks a bit like whipped cream, and has some real staying power, all the way to the end of the pint. The head does leave very nice creamy lacing on the sides of the glass. There is a decent amount of light streaming through with huge amounts of co2 thanks to the widget. The aroma on Wexford is creamy, a bit sweet, and a little bright. I found there to be a slight whipped creamy scent on the nose of this beer. The taste is super easy on your palate, with a big creamy lager flavor that is crisp, smooth, and easy drinking. There is a nice touch of sweetness that coats you tongue for a second or two, then fades to a nice smooth crispness. The mouth feel is somewhat light, and Wexford has nice easy creamed finish that leads into a nice creamy lager aftertaste that is lightly sweetened. Overall Wexford is very nice, easy, and drinkable cream ale. I give this an A. None of the flavors on this are too much or overdone or overpowered in any way.  I think that any type of beer drinker would enjoy this. So that is a yes on me recommend Wexford Irish Style Crème Ale. So go out and try Wexford Irish Style Crème Ale and see what you think of it. Cheers! Please drink responsibly!
