3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep brown color and a nice head give this beer a great appearance. Has a nutty palate, but the finish is very short. Very smooth. Tried this on draught in Dublin- good stuff.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
While in the town of Kilkenny, Ireland, I decided to try a pint of Kilkenny Irish Beer. It was extremely smooth and drinkable, but I could scarcely tell it apart from its sibling brew, Smithwicks Ale. Slight bitterness, perhaps, but otherwise very mild and lo-alcohol.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A dark amber beer with a very fine head. The aroma is slight primarily sweet. The flavor is acidic at first but very soft with a good sweetness and a slight bitterness. A beer with a very good balance.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Copper red color, little rapidly diminishing head. Nice aroma with roasted malt and a hint of fruits. Starts slightly fruity and continues drier. Bitter finish. Dry fruity and slightly bitter aftertaste which is pretty persistent. Overall pretty flat impression for an ale.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: MAR 7, 2003 I'm a bit disappointed with this one. It has a nice, kind of spicy aroma, a good creamy head, and a nice clear amber/brown colour. But it tastes too watery and the bitter aftertaste doesn't help.

UPDATED: FEB 3, 2003 From Guinness brewery I expected a little more form this creamy ale. Great appereance, the taste is lightly hoppy but too acid. A drinkable beer, but i didn't like it so much...
