Had this on tap and loved it probably one of my favorite beers ever so easy to drink. This cream ale pours a nice ruby red with a little yellow in the light. Nice white two finger head with a one finger that lingers. The smell is nice of roasted malts and cream just smooth all around. The taste is of malts and smoothness if that is a taste a bit watery if you concentrate to hard. A great offering for this style and good job for a Guinness brew. The mouthfeel is smooth and carbonated with just a little fizz nice and easy to take down a really nice session beer with the low ABV what a great brew to just sit back and enjoy with friends. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle, 33cL. Home. An sparkling clear orange beer with brown orange hues ; big off-white head ; medium retention. Roasty aroma, light herbal, light caramel. Light sweet, light dry bitter, light refreshing. Medium body, thin oily texture, average carbonation, sweet roasty finish. Overall, pleasant, drinkable OK aroma but watery.

I truly enjoyed this red ale. It has a nice rather thick texture and a aroma of roasted hops and yeast.

Rubinowe, klarowne piwo o średniej pianie, która redukuje się do zera. Aromat słaby, karmelowy. W smaku praktycznie nic się nie dzieje, wyczuwam praktycznie tylko lekką kwaskowość. Goryczka niska. Ogólnie czuć, że to piwo koncernowe, bo mimo iż nie jest to typowy lager to wyprute jest z aromatu i smaku podobnie do typowego koncerniaka, dodatkowo jest bardzo wodniste, jedyny plus to jego pijalność, ktoś chyba faktycznie "zabił Kennego".

It is only Kilkenny, but I like it. Perfect appearance, fruity nose with some roasty and caramel notes, crisp, a bit watery, dried fruits in taste. Very drinkable and you want another sip.

Water with lots of head. Some flavor, but mostly muted. Best part was the pour from can to glass. Other than that, I would not recommend.

Schöne dunkelrote Farbe , einigermaßen stabiler Schaum. In der Nase ausgesprochen malzig. Setzt sich im Trunk fort, im Abgang leicht bitter, sehr süffig, erfrischend. Für ein Industriebier garnicht schlecht.

From the tap. Hazlenut Brown with white head. Metallic nose and some roasted malts. Taste is caramell and risted malts. Little to no hops in the foreground. Slightly hoppy finish...

I was expecting a journey to find the lepricon with the gold at the end of the rainbow. I did not see the rainbow nor any lepricon with gold. OK beer.
