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.

Ungstrup (29286) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 12, 2003
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.

Bronstein (175) - Göttingen, GERMANY - FEB 7, 2003
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.

OKBeer (1171) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - FEB 6, 2003
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.

Voivod (304) - Como, ITALY - JAN 28, 2003
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...
