smooth sweet easy drinking beer. not a lot of gas so they do down quite easy. Great white head on it as you would expet from an irish beer. slightly bitter aftertaste, the kind of beeer you can drink quite easily all night.

Comes in a can here in Canada. Ok head, some malt and bitter qualities. Boddingtons is better, i agree.

Amber coloured beer with a perfect white head. Those widgets make nice looking beers. Unfortunatly not much aroma though. A little malty, a little yeast, almost no hops. Bitter taste, a hint of sweetness. Decent, though nothing really special happening. Extra milk-shake smooth, over does it. No carbonation, but it sure does go down quickly. Not a bad beer, would like to try it bottled. Can with widget.

UPDATED: MAR 27, 2004 (Draught canned, 4.3% ABV) Clear amber color, medium, tight, eternally lasting and lacy head. Mild, malty, slightly sweet leather aroma. Caramel-malty, bittersweet flavor with roasted-malty finish. Very easily drinkable with smooth and silky palate. This was my first favorite foreign beer (when I was like 20 or so) - and it still goes down pretty well. Beware of the bottled version - it's not nearly as enjoyable, as the tapped or draught-canned version.

Tried this back to back with Guinness in a smoky Irish pub. That killed my sense of smell but the alternative was Guinness in a widget can and no Kilkenny...
So, I liked this better than the Guinness, seeing that I'm fond of comparing apples with oranges.
It looks very nice and back to back with ol' Guinnes, none the worse looking in my eyes. The flavour isn't as interesting, but smooth and easy and the body is fuller, which bumps it up a notch for me.
Nice ale to have once in a while at the pub.

UPDATED: MAY 18, 2004 Mild sweet aroma. Nutbrown colour with thick white nitro head that lasts. Very mild flavour: sweet malt with a little bit of toastiness. Full body and big mouthfeel due to nitro. Probably wouldn't be as interesting if not on nitro... Can (with widget).

Creamy and thick. Plenty of flavour and is smooth as a babies bum. A little dry in the palate, maybe just a little coffee. Great to bury yourself into a pint.

Dark amber colour, thick creamy head with a hint of coffee in the malty taste and a dry finish.It's ok but nothing fancy.
