UPDATED: JUN 20, 2006 Out of the can, widget present. Poured into a pint glass. Anyway, looked delicious, very inviting. Smelled sweeter than it tasted, though the flavour was still nice. Sweet still, yet bitter. Light carbonation, but it felt SO nice going down, almost like a refreshing Iced Tea. Although itís a pleasure beer I could definitely drink a few of these at a mid-summer patio party. Didnít know it was brewed in any relation to Guinness, with that in mind Iíd say if Guinness is too much for you, get this. Diet Guinness, Guinness lite, whatever you want to call it. Very nice.

On tap at the Dukeís of Argyle, in Toronto. Very nice head and colour. Sweet and creamy. Taste of nuts and caramel.

This was simply Smithwickís on nitrogen (nice head that coated / laced the ENTIRE glass as I consumed) with a slightly more bitter aftertaste. I enjoy Smithwickís and cream ales, but combining the two either lost something (the increased bitterness), or the single order Iíve tasted just wasnít a good one. Iíd order this one again, but if it tastes the same, Iíll stick with Smittyís as my session beer.

jacobwennbom (353) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - APR 29, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 28, 2006 Dark and red it is. Creamy if my memroy doesnít fail me. Quite full body and high bitterness. Notes of butter scotch in both taste and aroma. Easy to drink, hardly any resistance at all. Good company if youíre eating meat at a steak house (or anywhere).

Slacks (615) - Bolton, Ontario, CANADA - APR 25, 2006
UPDATED: APR 29, 2006 Draught @ The Black Bull, Bolton, ON: Oh my God, I tried Kilkenny! Had to say it - much preferable on tap than in a can. Pours quite nicely with the Guinness-esque reverse cascade and a head that wonít dissipate. Scent is mild, not much to speak of. I swear I tasted floral accents alongside the aforementioned nuts and caramel, with a distinct bitter aftertaste.
