Even when I was dumb enough to think nitro-dispense beers were cool I didnít like Kilkenny. Doesnít smell of anything, has a toasty, vanilla ice cream malt presence but is ultimately watery and unfulfilling. No faults, but really lacking any character. Still, itís often the best beer available at stupid Irish-themed pubs (itís a toss-up with Guinness.)

Big creamy head on a deep amber brew. In a word, this was just watery without much flavor. Decent fruity aroma. Dry, aspirin bittering. Bland, with virtually no aftertaste.

Got a bottle of this in Heidelberg, Germany in June 2001. I was impressed by the smoothness enough to remember it almost two years later. Very satisfying.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Looks really nice - a earthy amber colour with a thick, creamy head. Not much aroma, presumably thanks to the nitro. Body is so creamy that it practically slides down your throat. Flavour is well balanced, but pretty undistinguished.

Promises alot - looks great - lovely across the lips and onto the tongue, then loses impact with no real body or aftertaste. I left disappointed.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice amber colour with a nitro-induced creamy white head. Slightly sour malty flavour. Cherry notes and woodiness as well. A classic brew, but Iíd like to try it without the nitro.

Looks perfect - small but very dense, pure white head. Good head retention. After itís settled, it looks like the perfect pint - razor sharp line between the head and a beautiful, reddish brown ale. Pleasant taste, not too bitter. Little aftertaste.
