At Busch Gardens. Seems like it’s on nitro. Thick head, thin body. Red in appearancean took a while to settle. Caramel flavor, slight nuttiness. Finish is vague light hops, noble. Not bad. Drinkable, sessionable.

JStax (2601) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - APR 11, 2014
Draft pour. Clear copper color with a fluffy beige head of foam. Great retention. The aroma is soft and biscuity withight notes of toffee throughout. The taste is more on the sweet side. Creamy mouthfeel. Low carbonation.

hotstuff (3901) - Indiana, USA - APR 10, 2014
Rated on 4-22-211 at JK O’Donnell’s Irish Ale House, Fort Wayne, IN. This draft beer has a small milky smooth off-white head that is fully lasting. It has a transparent copper body with no carbonation observed and a generous amount of lacing. The aroma is caramel malt, roasted and a hint of hops. The taste mimics the aroma. The mouthfeel is smooth and this is a light-medium bodied beer. Overall, the flavor has a lot to be desired. There is not a whole lot of it, lacks character and is a boring beer to drink/rate. This is a beer I do not recommend.

tricksta_p (622) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - APR 8, 2014
Aroma of light malts. Flavour is malty, not much else. A bit watery. Decent drinkable Irish Ale, but nothing to get excited about.

440 ml can. Long time since I had a kilkenny. Solid white head, like a stout. Color is dark brown red. Smell is sweet but not strong. Just a bit of bitterness in the taste. A nice smooth moutfeel. Taste dissappears quickly.

meta3 (1) - SLOVENIA - APR 1, 2014 does not count
I got this beer in a tin and pour it in glass. Beer head was about 1 cm high and stayed up for a decent time which is good for me. Beer’s color was alright. Beer taste was like water on some moments. In my opinion it’s aroma was too weak and aroma didn’t last for a long time. It was expensive beer but not so special for that money.

Poured on tap. Looks was like a stout on top, had thick white creamy very fine bubbled head with decent CO2 but it was a rusty brown. Aroma was mildly roasted malts. Taste was malty, caramel, a bit nutty. Thick and creamy, much better than I thought is was going to be.
