Keg. Clear golden colour with a medium white head. Weak malty body with a weak hoppy finish. Boring standard pale lager.

Not much more than a slight upgrade on your typical lager. Strong hop presence, light golden color with a thin white head. If you can find it, I would recommend Kinsale Ale over this one (milwaukee Irishfest has it)

Had this in Kinsale...actually thought the brewery was done and dusted, but apparently the are just moved to Cork while they are looking for more land in Kinsale...hopefully they will soon have bigger selection. This one was oki for lager but will always prefer a stout. Ligt gold with tiny head, light aroma of citrus, some flowers and yeast. Flavour is sweet with little bitter and dry finish.

Nose of sweet flowers and malt. Taste is nutty and semisweet. Very slight bitterness at the end. Nothing special, but would work as a session beer it choices where slim. Looks like a budweiser.

On tap at Claddaugh’s pub in Newport, KY.
I’m sorry but this a MUCH better beer than is reviewed here. Very drinkable lager with subtle malt flavor and decent bitter dry finish.
I don’’t understand the hatred for this beer.

On tap at the Tap Tavern in Kinsale. I just noticed that I had missed adding a rating for this one back in May. Pours a clear light gold with a lacy white head. Aroma noble hops and bread. Tastes and finishes a bit like a Pils.

Found this one on draught in Geneva, Illinois. Bright golden pour with a thin, white head; slightly astringent, citrusy nose with a pit of hops; typically bland flavor; strong finish. Mine tapered off to a bit of aluminum towards the end.
