This used to be very good. Iíve had both the draught and draught can. It has been re-formulated, and I think that they should go back to the original!

UPDATED: OCT 20, 2009 Tap@SomePubDublin, Oct 09, 3.2: Sweetish, easy going, lightly hopped, bitterish finish. Soft mouth feel, clean, pleasant. Bottle@Home, Feb 04, 2.8: Caramel and a little herbal aroma. Amber color, white head, good lace. Sweet, caramel, light bitter to bitter in the end, bland.

mrkimchee (1414) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 9, 2002
nice golden orange colour with a creamy head and the eye pleasing cascade effect. thatís more or less what the beer has going for it. not that itís really bad, but itís something I used to think was a really great beer when I didnít know any better. very faint aroma of fruit. sweetish malt flavours and moderately bitter. nothing special

Reddish-auburn, red ale, with a thick, off-white head, and a rich, malty nose, butterscotch and a hint of hops. Creamy smooth, with a light roastiness, Kilkenny has a quick, easy finish.

RichardGretton (4227) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 28, 2002
Smooth beer similar to an English bitter but with a frothy palate. Overall a plain beer that needs something more to stand out as a drink.

daboskabouter (1470) - Fergus, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 27, 2002
Golden, same old nitro look which may impress the first time one ever sees it, but later warns of a watery beer. Thin, sweet, touch of piney hops in the finish. No good.

Yeah, pretty decent beer overall. Good flavour, reasonable aftertaste. Not bad.

Pretty good stuff. The draught carbonation really works out for me. Too bad I had to go to Montreal to get this. I seriously didnít drive all that way to buy Canadian beer. Really. Kilkennyís one of the best ones I brought home. Rich, creamy and irish.

Dark brown with a creamy dark beige head. I like the flavour, creamy and slightly bitter. This creamy beverage brings me many great memories from Australia and Europe, I wish we could get in America. Though I wish we could have a Guiness Brewery here as well.
