Drank this on tap at "Hole in the Wall" on Amsterdam’s Leidseplein with Boris. A perennial favorite because of it’s strong, smooth taste. Was convinced this beer actually called "Killian’s Red."

On tap. Red-brown colours, appears thick (and is a bit). Creamy head, malty smells. Normally only drink it on St Pats Day but made an exception.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: JAN 28, 2007 Draft @ Café Klostertorvet, Aalborg, DK. Poured a clear orange-brown with a brownish off-white head. Kinda weak aroma; bitterish hoppy with malty and flowery notes. Flavour is slightly hoppy with malty notes. Fair as such, but it has a very sour touch in a bad way, which pulls it down. Bitter and dryish finish. Palate feels a bit thin. Also, it was made with nitrogen which usually gives a more smooth palate, but in this case it just didn’t work – it just felt stale – would probably have been better with carbonacid. 14-07-06.
Can. - 4 / 3 / 4 / 2 / 6. Pours dark golden with a creamy head. Aroma is sweetish with sharp vegetable and hay notes. Flavour is like a stale discount lager. Remote notes of cumin. Vegetable notes. Faint notes of rice and milk appear as it warms. Slightly bitter and dryish finish with grassy notes. 27-01-07.

33cl bottle. Deep brown with thin off white head. Some yeast, some red malt on the aroma. Bit of stale malt too. Cream and red malts in mouth. Bit thin otherwise. Bit ugly as the bottle went down.

I have found my little piece of heaven with Kilkenny. I am a real fan of dark beers and at first taste Kilkenny did not seem to measure up, but now it has become my beer of choice. Smooth, understated taste.

Tap at the Shamrock in St. Petersburg. Poured copper red with a large creamy white head... obviously nitro-induced. Faint caramel and butter aroma. Taste is very light caramel, little hop flavor. Watery nitro body. Blah.

on tap at "Carlsens Skvatter" (Odense) Mahogany brown with a fine creamy head. However the texture is also like in guiness basically watery. Low carbonation. Finish is quite malty and anonymous!
