Crystal malt is about all you get in both the aroma and flavour. Palate is quite smooth and full to start but it's just a trick of the nitro, finish is very thin and flavourless.

3.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JAN 23, 2004 Re-rate: Gentle malt aroma that is hard to find when on tap. Still great looking clear red stuff and the trick with the nitrogen/co2 mix makes it look really cool. Flavour is really quite week malt with a tiny bit of hop flavour that quickly gives way to a fantastically balanced hop bitterness which is what really makes this likeable. I think this should be drunk without food to avoid loosing the flavour altogether. Great for times when you need to quench your thirst quickly.

This appears down here in the widget can. Its not a bad ale but it isn't remarkable. The head is the typical nitrogenous one atop an orange coppery hue. Very light on the hops. A bit of a bore, to be sure, to be sure.

I used to like Kilkenny until my beer palate was trained. Now it doesn't do anything for me. It is thin in body and hoppiness doesn't really exist.
