I tried this a few times when I was younger and thought it was good, so I thought I’d try it again, it’s been about 15 years since I’ve had a pint of Kilkenny. It Pours dark amber with a tanned head that lasts the whole beer. The aroma matches the flavours with caramel malt, fruits and honey. Mouthful is smooth with a slight bitter finish. Not as bitter as I had remembered it, but then again I was young and hadn’t had an IPA yet. A blast from the past and still good.

Zlotta (2257) - Hagen, GERMANY - AUG 19, 2016
0.1 l on tap at ’The Shakespeare’ (Herdecke). Clear, dark golden amber with a thin, slightly creamy, white head. Sweetish-malty, a little fruity aroma of caramel and red fruits. Sweetish-malty, a little fruity taste of caramel, some honey and a bit of red fruits, followed by a short, just slightly bitter, a little musty finish. Thin to medium body, slightly oily mouthfeel, very soft carbonation. Okay, just very bland.

No sé si será por el grifo pero tiene un gustillo ácido que no viene al cuento. Otra vez será.

Caramel notes, ruby with a good and not very persistant white head, light body, medium carbonation, caramel taste but quite watery, without character...drink it and forget about it unless ther is another pint.

Tummanruskea, kolanvärinen olut kivalla kestävällä sentin paksuisella pienikuplaisella ja tiheällä "maitovaahdolla", typpikapselin ansiosta. Tuoksu maltainen ja makea, mutta ei juuri muuta. Maku makea, turhan vetinen ja pehmeä. Kuin vedellä höystettyä linnunmaitoa joisi. Ei käytännössä lainkaan hiilihappoja. Helppoa juotavaa, mutta eipä tämä ihan iske.

Zacht Iers biertje, Mooie amberkleur, geen schuimkraag. De smaak valt tegen wat waterig. Al met al niet veel aroma en smaak

Can at home. Nitro edition. Light brown colour, massive white head. Nose is light roasted malts. Taste is low bitterness low sweetness. Faint caramel. Smotth mouthfeel due to the nitro. Abrupt finish. Not very outstanding.
