Dark amber in color with toasted malt flavor and mild bitter taste. Light creamy head and medium carbonation.

First out of a bottle. I could hardly believe this was actually marketed at a fairly high price. I tried the can with the widget. Terrible. Rusty tap water with a hint of soap. Poured well over half of each down the drain. Absolutely awful.

From a can with a nitrogenated widget. Pours a light flat brown. No characteristic creamy head on this beer. Still in date. Musty malt aroma and light malt taste. Fairly watery and thin. Disappointing. Not like I remembered.

hrabren (1056) - Zagreb, CROATIA - DEC 31, 2016
0.33 l bottle from Pivoteka, Zagreb. Drank it years ago but didn’t rate so I’ll fix that now. Clear amber, small off white head. Metallic, fruity, toasty, light spicy. Taste is ok, sweet, toasty, malty, honey and gingerbread. Light body, quite watery, soft to medium carbonation, abrupt finish.

sharkydodson (1291) - St. Petersburg, RUSSIA - DEC 31, 2016
the aroma is fruity and caramel with shades of raisin, bread, berries and some herbs... the taste is malty and fruity with notes of caramel, berries, black bread and some grasses... sweet, dry and, a little bit, bitter aftertaste...

Guinness gets all the hype in Ireland but in my opinion this is the nicer brew. Creamy, nice head. Goes down smooth, well balanced. Great on cold days.

kubmal (242) - POLAND - DEC 16, 2016
Dark amber colour, nice head. Weak aroma of mainly hops, caramel and some dried fruits. Taste is dry, with low bitterness. Creamy, drinkable and pleasant in general, but lacks any depth.

Bière au goût assez léger présentant une légère touche de caramel. Le goût est assez faible mais c’est une bière assez désaltérante.

Tezminator (100) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 10, 2016
Faint aroma of coffee and caramel. Taste of toasted malt and mild caramel. Somewhat watery. It’s okay.

mclaren14 (235) - £ód¼, POLAND - DEC 7, 2016
Aromat: słodowy, lekko alkoholowy (ale z gatunku wyższych alkoholi), karmel, trochę ciasteczek, mało intensywnie Wygląd: głęboka miedziana barwa, idealnie klarowne, piana o barwie kości słoniowej, wysoka, gęsta, kremowa, trwała, zostawia po sobie ładny fartuszek Smak: słodowy, wyraźnie karmelowy, wodnisty, goryczka niska Podniebienie: bardzo niskie nagazowanie, lekkie, aksamitne, pijalne, lekko taninowe Podsumowanie: śliczny koncerniak, który dobrze "wchodzi", walory smakowe nieszczególne, ale z drugiej strony nie jest wadliwe

bartlebier (3630) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - DEC 7, 2016
33cl bb02/2017. - Unlike the redeemingly creamy draught version, the bottled Kilkenny is a rougher creatures, edgy with those spent coffee ground roasted barley malts and an uncouth earthy bitterness that spoils the nuances of the "red" malt character. Lager-like, with a sulphurous copper twist. Will rerate adding in the more palatable draught version.
