A very light and blonde Ale of the style. Taste is light yet it has alot to it. Nice malt and hops combination.

This one poured a orangy red with a beautiful thick creamy head. Strong scents of caramel and citrus with a little dough tossed in for good measure. First taste was watery and short lived on taste. The low carbonation thing didn't help either. The finish was short lived with a slightly malty/ bitter finish. The taste seemed to build up after a while and be more full. As for the palate there wasn't initially much to it. Still watery with a very slight bittery aftertaste. Although this doesn't sound like a good review I'm still a fan of this ale.

UPDATED: FEB 16, 2010 Amber beer with a small but lasting, creamy head. A strong aroma of malt, caramel and honey. But it’s watery without much flavour, with only a little hop aftertaste.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: FEB 2, 2004 A smooth drinking red ale. Not much head, but very appealing colour. Goes down almost too easily. This isn't really a sipping beer.

When standing in a bar, one of my favorite occupations is to watch a Kilkenny settle in the glass. The aroma is not that clear, but the taste and the mouthfeel is worth the time.

On tap (nitro). Amber color with typical rocky nitro head. Mild hop and malt flavor. Balanced beer that can be drank all night.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Had a pint after a pint of Smithwicks and found this one lacking in many areas. Ok colour and head but drinks thin and has a forgettable flavour. Smooth enough with a mild bitter aftertaste but wouldn't bother if there are any other U.K. brews on tap at your pub of choice.

This beer is pretty good, but I wouldn't rave about it like some. It does have a great head and the appearance is almost perfect. The flavour, though, while distinct, still leaves something to be desired.

CREAM Ale is perhaps the best way to describe it. Low on CO2. Great, but only in small quantities...
