glennmastrange (2742) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - JAN 30, 2008
Draught. Moderate note of grain, light note of herbs, moderate musty/earthy aroma for the yeast, and faint root beer and spiciness in the background. Head is large, creamy, slightly off-white, with excellent lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is clear copper. Flavor is lightly acidic to start and finishes lightly acidic and bitter. Palate is light to medium, watery and has a soft carbonation. Good pub beer with a light taste, much better than the bottled version.

This one is in my top ten. I used to drink this beer in Koblenz and listen to a German guy sing Bob Dylan covers. Kilkenny went down like milk. Smooth and easy.

as (180) - Belgrade / Hamburg, - JAN 16, 2008
0,33 l bottle (5% ABV). Transparent light brown color, nice head. Dominant roasted malt aromas but still with a noticeable hop bitterness. Dry and a bit watery. Can sometimes be a bit sour, donít know why. Nothing too special, but I still like it, mainly because itís the only beer of this kind available here in Serbia.

davidpl (435) - Santiago, CHILE - DEC 20, 2007
Appearance: clear mahogany color. Medium head, ivory color and low lasting. Aroma: candy, malty and semi-toasty touch. Other reminiscences like toffee, butter, vanilla and ice cream. Some aromatic fruitiness, similar to raisins, grape and plums. Flavor: candied and toasted malts. Reminiscences similar at noose; that is, toffee, butterscotch, milk with coffee and red tea. Fruits such as candied oranges, red raisins and figs. Light final hoppy, but persistent. Semi-toasted malty aftertaste. Palate: light body and watery texture. Medium carbonated. Nice, but little body.

kappldav123 (6015) - GERMANY - DEC 12, 2007
Also dieses Bier macht was her. Im Gegensatz zum Guiness macht es seinem Ruf alle Ehre und ist ein Superbier. Die Farbe ist schon ein Traum, dieser rŲstig-malzige Geschmack, wirklich sehr lecker.
