2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2007 On tap and of all places, over in Dubai: Pours a nice red color with the infamous nitro head. Very low carbination. I couldnít detect much of a smell. Anywho, it was a very smooth beer. I did detect some malt and some hops though. I would like to try again and possibly re-rate.

Dark amber in color, it has a bit of hops and malt in the taste and aroma. I had in on tap and it had a long lasting head. Nothing speacial about it, just o.k.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: APR 21, 2007 can: I like to think of this as the Forgotten Beer. I always liked this Irish Cream Ale. If you like cream ales then you will love this. Iím amazed how this is sweet and yet bitter. Deep browny red with thick white head. Smells like it tastes, and cascades nicely upon pouring. Refreshing, sweet ale that goes down way too smooth. Mix it up: put down the can of Guinness & pick up the Kilkenny! This is so smooth. How can you rate this cream ale badly? Excellent example of style.

On tap. Cock and Mussel, Winnipeg.
Not the best but not the worst Iíve ever had. Decent colour, pours OK, but the flavour was just lacking something.

Drank this on tap at "Hole in the Wall" on Amsterdamís Leidseplein with Boris. A perennial favorite because of itís strong, smooth taste. Was convinced this beer actually called "Killianís Red."

On tap. Red-brown colours, appears thick (and is a bit). Creamy head, malty smells. Normally only drink it on St Pats Day but made an exception.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: JAN 28, 2007 Draft @ Cafť Klostertorvet, Aalborg, DK. Poured a clear orange-brown with a brownish off-white head. Kinda weak aroma; bitterish hoppy with malty and flowery notes. Flavour is slightly hoppy with malty notes. Fair as such, but it has a very sour touch in a bad way, which pulls it down. Bitter and dryish finish. Palate feels a bit thin. Also, it was made with nitrogen which usually gives a more smooth palate, but in this case it just didnít work Ė it just felt stale Ė would probably have been better with carbonacid. 14-07-06.
Can. - 4 / 3 / 4 / 2 / 6. Pours dark golden with a creamy head. Aroma is sweetish with sharp vegetable and hay notes. Flavour is like a stale discount lager. Remote notes of cumin. Vegetable notes. Faint notes of rice and milk appear as it warms. Slightly bitter and dryish finish with grassy notes. 27-01-07.

33cl bottle. Deep brown with thin off white head. Some yeast, some red malt on the aroma. Bit of stale malt too. Cream and red malts in mouth. Bit thin otherwise. Bit ugly as the bottle went down.
