Well I had Caffreys so I didnt have high expectations for this. Is caffreys meant to have a widget? cos mine didnt but kilkenny did. Thick attractive head, pleasant deep orange colour, lacking a bit in carbonation for my liking but overall it goes down nice and creamy. cheers

(canned) Orange/copper color. Dense, thick white head. Weak malty aroma. Fizzy in body and flavour. Hints of grass, caramel and hops. Some hoppy notes in finish. Not my style of beer...

Not a bad drop. Can only locate in cans. Not my favourite style of beer, but not bad all the same.

UPDATED: DEC 20, 2003 Tried at an estimated 85 degrees fahrenheit. The bartender gave me this heat in a bottle for only $3. I should've gotten some tea instead.

Great looking beer, good amber colour and creamy head. The flavour is just a bit off. SLightly chemical and a bit bland. A little disappointing really.

Had this in a draught can. Poured amber with i very nice white head. The taste is water with a little sweetness.

Draft: Had this while in Ireland. I'm not sure how it would be otherwise but that made it pretty tolerable. Good color and good head. Had it again 2 weeks later in an Irish Pub in Paris. Tasted o.k. but more like killians rat piss compared to when I first tried it.

Amber colored with a thick, cream colored nitro head. Kind of sweet, and kind of nutty. Dry bitter finish. Decent, but not great.

Finally had this lard juice thanks to the Bardz who let me have some of his schooner at the Royal the other night. This, for some reason, is a regular on tap in Sydney pubs. It tastes like an even more watery version of the CUB guiness that gets pumped out over here. There is a hint of stale nuts and if I had my own schooner I would have hit the pokies.
