A good cream ale. Good color and wonderful thick head. Easy drinking pub ale.

UPDATED: AUG 4, 2005 Killkenny Draught
440 ml nitrocan. Pours an enormous creamy head, then that subsides to around 0.7cm. Deep orange/near brown colour. No noticable aroma, maybe a bit malt. Taste is predominantly water, maybe a bit malt maybe, roasty and nothing else. Worthless. 2/4/4/1/8
Oh dear, I gave the previous rating (7/4/5/3/13) thinking that what I drank was a bad bottle, but now I tried it again, but everything I didnít like about it was still there, the ugly aftertaste, the lack of taste, everything. I just hope that this is better in Ireland, and that they export only bad batches. Because what Iím drinking right now is just bad.
Quite a fine ale, looks quite good, with a nice, creamy head. Tastes just fine, maybe some caramel can be felt, but the aftertaste is offputting, like something got burned, and it stays for a while. 5/4/4/2/11

On tap not from the nitro -- not a bad ale... sweetly, creamy, a tad of caramel texture. Not sure if Iíd have this over smithwicks though.

Keg, Smoothflow. Deep amber, highly aerated, thick ice-cream head. Tinny nitro aroma with a particularly thin tasteless body. Poor junk Iím sorry to say, awful.

UPDATED: SEP 26, 2004 A nice yummy cream ale. The beer looked spectacular in a clear pint glass... with a very dark lightly carbonated body with a thick dense creamy head. Had a nice roastey flavor with a hint of creaminess. Iíd have one again sometime.

A smooth creamy sweet ale. Still pretty thick. Notes of honey and almonds. Goof stuff for a chnage every now and again.

Almost white head. Dark amber body. I donīt think this beer has so much tast actually. But there is a tuch of hops and a litte bitter aftertaste.

Even when I was dumb enough to think nitro-dispense beers were cool I didnít like Kilkenny. Doesnít smell of anything, has a toasty, vanilla ice cream malt presence but is ultimately watery and unfulfilling. No faults, but really lacking any character. Still, itís often the best beer available at stupid Irish-themed pubs (itís a toss-up with Guinness.)
