2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: OCT 1, 2004 The beer evacuates the 12-ounce bottle an orange-red color with a smallish off white frothy head and a thin covering of lace upon the glass. Nose is sweet malt, crisp and fresh to the senses, start is slightly sweet with a thin grain profile, top is light in feel to the palate. Finish is acidic to the max, hops pleasant enough and the aftertaste dry and lingering, I can truthfully say this is at least drinkable as is the Michelob line

Well...for an A-B beer I thought this was pretty good. I think it rivals Killians, although I think Killians has a better nose to it, and a better mouth feel. But Killarney’s was decent. A little watery and bland, but much better than the typical swill produced by A-B.

This beer has premiered just in time for Saint Pat’s Day. Hooooraaaa! It’s another choice for you as you watch the parades and engage in public drunkedness and sport vomitting. Now due to the US’s renewed interest in micro-brews, full bodied beers, and imports , A-B can give us their version of the red lager speciality beer--(washed down with a helping of millions of dollars in advertising). Look out Killians!
Side Note: It didn’t taste all that good.
