This one is in my top ten. I used to drink this beer in Koblenz and listen to a German guy sing Bob Dylan covers. Kilkenny went down like milk. Smooth and easy.

This ale CANNOT be drank from a can. Itís sacrilige. From the tap it is beautiful... Creamy... no bitterness from the tap.

as (176) - Belgrade / Hamburg, - JAN 16, 2008
0,33 l bottle (5% ABV). Transparent light brown color, nice head. Dominant roasted malt aromas but still with a noticeable hop bitterness. Dry and a bit watery. Can sometimes be a bit sour, donít know why. Nothing too special, but I still like it, mainly because itís the only beer of this kind available here in Serbia.

davidpl (435) - Santiago, CHILE - DEC 20, 2007
Appearance: clear mahogany color. Medium head, ivory color and low lasting. Aroma: candy, malty and semi-toasty touch. Other reminiscences like toffee, butter, vanilla and ice cream. Some aromatic fruitiness, similar to raisins, grape and plums. Flavor: candied and toasted malts. Reminiscences similar at noose; that is, toffee, butterscotch, milk with coffee and red tea. Fruits such as candied oranges, red raisins and figs. Light final hoppy, but persistent. Semi-toasted malty aftertaste. Palate: light body and watery texture. Medium carbonated. Nice, but little body.

kappldav123 (5847) - GERMANY - DEC 12, 2007
Also dieses Bier macht was her. Im Gegensatz zum Guiness macht es seinem Ruf alle Ehre und ist ein Superbier. Die Farbe ist schon ein Traum, dieser rŲstig-malzige Geschmack, wirklich sehr lecker.

BeerBiker (1414) - Odense, DENMARK - DEC 11, 2007
[Sampled in 2004.] A nice brew with a great foam created by the N2-gas-additives in the can. Caramel and flowers and some hops to keep it all in balance. Not that bad, but I havenít sampled it since.

Nitrokeg. Nice creamy lasting head. Brownish appearance. Little sweet grainy and diacetyl aroma. Weak malt flavour.

patrick767 (3964) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - NOV 24, 2007
draft - Pours amber and smells mainly of caramel malt. The flavor is sweet malt and just a little hops. Itís medium bodied and just flavorful enough to make for a decent session beer.
