MBison (548) - Southern Highlands, - JUL 24, 2009
Nitro-can (440ml). Poured copper coloured with a thick creamy, off-white head which lasted superbly. A light aroma with notes of sweet bread, caramel malts, biscuits and red berries. Flavor was a very light earthy bitterness with caramel malts, gooseberries and some nuts. Light bodied with virtually no carbonation, a watery texture, creamy mouthfeel and a short lived, clean finish.

Botella de 330ml. Vaso de Pinta. Malta caramel y matices de Madera fresco al destapar. Brota con color ámbar anaranjado y apariencia algo velada. Espuma blanca y tupida aunque se disipa con rapidez. El perfil aromático se completa con notas de hierba y gentil naranja. Entrada caramelizada que precede a un agradable amargor herbáceo. Cuerpo ligero-medio y carbonatación moderada a moderadamente alta. Textura densa y paladar reseco. El caramelo y el tímido cítrico regresan en el intermedio y permanece en el dulce y levemente amargo final con recuerdos de naranja. Prolongado retrogusto de madera. Suave y de trago fácil con sensaciones resecas y refrescantes. 330ml bottle. Pint glass. Caramel & hints of fresh wood as cap is removed. Pours orangish amber in color with chill hazy appearance. White froth is close but quickly diminished. Aroma profile is completed by grassy & gentle orange notes. Caramelized upfront followed by kind herbal bitterness. Light to medium body. Moderate to moderately high carbonation. Dense texture & dried palate. Caramel & shy citric come back in the middle & linger into a sweet/slightly bitter finish with orange memories. Long woody aftertaste. Smooth & easy drinkability, dried & refreshing sensations.

dr.dod (301) - Szeged, HUNGARY - JUL 12, 2014
33cl bottle. Pale brown ale with big creamy head what disappear quite fast. Sweet malt and just a little hop dominated. Maybe nut you can feel. Good ale but it is very expesive for the not very big quality.

Flaska från MrHult. Dimmig mörk rödbrun vätska. Luktar kola. Ganska tunn smak, men lite söt kola. Rätt kolsyrad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Defensemaster (30) - GERMANY - JUL 11, 2014
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.
