COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Kinsale Irish is a smooth, golden lager crafted from the finest natural ingredients and aged to perfection. No chemicals, no preservatives, and no gimmicks- just the only Irish lager actually brewed in Ireland and available here!

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.

Crafty07 (404) - Florence, Kentucky, USA - FEB 24, 2008
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.

bitbucket (2159) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - DEC 23, 2007
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.

gws57 (1274) - Saint Charles, Illinois, USA - SEP 13, 2007
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.

Very pale lager with an average head. Bland with corn and grassy hop flavours.

bottle - Pours piss yellow with a thin head and a corn malt aroma. It’s sweet and light like a typical pale lager. There’s a trace of hops and nothing offensive about it. There’s just not much there to justify drinking it.
