A nice, nitrogen, cream ale. Very easy to drink and mellow on flavors. My only hope that it can be introduced across the U.S.

Kilkenny Irish Beer exhibits a malty aroma, a lacy head, and a rich, dark amber appearance. Its taste is rather bland, considering the previous criteria. Malty with a sweet finish, it is drinkable but unremarkable. ---Cheers until next time! DMSR

Flaša. Tmavo červená farba, jemná biela pena. Vôňa sladová, sladká, kvetinová. V chuti sladovosť, jemne karamel, kvetinové tóny a v pozadí pražené slady. Telo prázdnejšie, vodovejšie, ale celkovo piteľné pivo.

Medium amber pour with a medium off white head, some lacing. Predominately malt aroma, some hops. Similar taste, some toffee. Overall very simple.

Tap at Flannagan’s in Vienna, pours a copper color with a beige head, has a sweet caramel and nut taste, light bitter finish, it seemed a little thin but still not bad.

Oginme (42) - New Hampshire, USA - JUN 27, 2014
Draught on Nitrogen: Pours a clean reddish amber with ample, fine foamed off-white head which had some persistence. Aroma was slightly sweet and malty. Taste was strong malt forward featuring caramel, slight toffee and ending with a mild roasted flavors. Medium-light bodied, it ended semi-dry with a subdued hop bitterness.

YigSvartka (58) - Manitoba, CANADA - JUN 24, 2014
Nice large frothy head. Translucent red/brown. Extremely stunted aroma consisting of malt, nuts, alcohol, and cream. Thankfully the taste supersedes the aroma significantly. Certainly suits its title as a cream ale. Very creamy. Nice brown characteristics of malt, nuts, and alcohol are present. No hops. Very smooth and creamy throughout with a lingering alcohol/cream taste. Killa shit.

Overall enjoyable ale, though no great aroma sensations as could be expected. Quite abrupt finish. Had this beer with a home-made Shepherd’s pie, nice combination.
