Tasting Notes

Wexford Irish Ale comes in a can with a widget which releases nitrogen when the beer is opened. Nitrogen is usually reserved for stouts, but Wexford uses the nitrogen to give the beer a creaminess and long lasting, thick head complemented by a soft orange tint and a caramelized, toffee like nose. This beer should be savored so as to enjoy the sweet and fruity aspects, which are more prevalent here than in most examples of the style. Additionally, the hop profile is very low and almost nonexistent in terms of bitterness.
