All of the beers in Ireland (Bud included) are poured using beer gas (a mix of Nitrogen and CO2) and they are poured from a stout tap. The difference is the restrictor plate is removed and the pressure is not set as high as say a Guinness.
I didn't really notice a difference in the way that a Carling poured and tasted served this way. That's to be expected though. Carling, BMC et al. are thinner bodied beers and the Nitrogen doen't work it's magic without pressure and the agitation of the restrictor plate.
I'll see if I can post pics this week. It really is comical to see a Bud with a stout tap. It cries out, "But I am a big boy beer... see".
ETA: Also, I agree with what the Pastor says above.
