From 500ml can. Great pour. Looks great deep copper coulour and a thick tall white head. Light malty aroma. Very creamy and easy to drink. The flavor of roasted malts is very smooth and agreeable. nice beer.

440 mL Nitro Can. It poured "just like that Guinness commercial", the glass looking like it was getting filled with milk shake until the extra fine effervescence settled up into a creamy off-white head over a copper body. It left ample lace on the sides during the sipping. The aroma is of malt and caramel with a tang to it. A full malty taste with the crystal malt making itself known followed by a mild, slightly spicy aftertaste, yet smooth. The malt and hops balance well; neither one overpowering the other. The nitrogen carbonation does make a difference in the presentation and the mouth feel. Good beer!

Great beer! Had it in Dublin, looking for it in the USA. Is it "Smithwicks"? I read somewhere about a name licsensing issue.

UPDATED: JUL 31, 2014 On tab, gives a red copper clear color with a small but very dense cream head. Flavors are weak, noting much but malted water. and some people spend money on this? Because they are tired of drinking Heineken!

En ganska enkel öl som gärna avnjuts tillsammans med något tilltugg. Söt doft och distinkt smak (även om den kan uppfattas som något vattnig/slät som enskild upplevelse).

Oh my god, it’s Kilkenny! You bastards!!! Reddish-copper color with an off-white head. Caramel malt aroma. Malty flavor with a sweet taste, not as hoppy as I like it but a decent beer nonetheless. Medium-bodied and smooth.

Draught at Decembeer beer festival in Tel Aviv. Slightly hazy amber color with creamy off-white head. Aroma some malt, a bit of toastiness and light notes of metal. Sweetish flavor with light toasted malt and a bit of bitterness in the finish. Creamy but very watery mouthfeel.
