Nice deep gold colour. Very malty with the apple notes as described. Had some hops, but could have used some more - this was made by Rogue?! Dry finish. Not bad. Gromit (479) - Port Orchard, Washington, USA - JUN 29, 2004
I like this a lot more than I thought I would.
Pours a golden color with a decent head but left no lacing.
Scent is typical for a Lager.
Taste is crisp and refreshing. There’s a definate green apple finish to it. Well balanced with malt sweetness and the hops.
Palate, as I stated before, is rather crisp. Overall this is quite good and definately worth checking out.

This bottled brew poured a large sized head of fine to medium sized white colored mostly lasting bubbles. The body was a carbonated hazy yellow brown color. The aroma was a simple malt hop one and the mouth feel was tingly and mild with a pilsner like mild hop finish. The flavor contained notes of malt and hops. It was smooth and good yet nothing special enough to write Josh about! hotstuff (5142) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - JUN 16, 2004
Bottle. Medium sized white foamy head and fine-small sized bubbles. Fast rising carbonation and a golden orange hue. Malty, hoppy, sweet and fruity aroma. Malty and hop flavor. Fairly smooth mouthfeel, but somewhat dry. Medium bodied beer with fair lacing. Worth a try. MMM...Beer (385) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUN 13, 2004
Irish style lagers have really become one of my favorite brew styles in late. Tends to be very smooth/creamy and soft on the palate and nose, and deep copper in color, and Kells is a great example matching all of the above. Very drinkable and goes with just about any type of food. When I’m in the mood for a lager, screw the Millers and Buds, and pass me an Kell’s Irish.

Brewery. Didn;t know what it was when i had it, now i found out its a lager and i’m still confused. Whatever it is, it wasn’t good. Honey/buttery malts, sweetish and not much action on the palate, pretty odd stuff.
Gold color, nice head, slight skunky hop nose. Slightly sweet, but nicely bittered. Like a premium Heinekin. Jokes (1453) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 26, 2004
Hazy golden body with a thin, frothy white head. Sharp, biscuity malt nose with fairly fresh German, grassy hops. Clean, crisp malt really gives a nice whole grain, bready element that lays under the hops. Fairly full-bodied for the style. The flavors are quite clean and very straightforward. The finish is maybe a bit short, but otherwise copacetic. Nothing outstanding, but a solid, drinkable, hoppy lager. cigarsnbeer (146) - Valley City, North Dakota, USA - MAY 20, 2004
When I saw this was from Rougue I was very excited, however this was not a great offering. This beer reminded me of a stepped up version of a American lager. If you like a crisp, hoppy lager this maybe right up your street, but I wasn’t feeling it! JoeM500 (1908) - Crown Point, Indiana, USA - MAY 20, 2004
Golden yellow with a very, very fresh nose. Crispy and wispy head, I would guess this to have come from a tapper!! While not all that exciting of a style, this thirst quencher was a perfect match for my boring burger that accompanied it. Slightly grassy and dry in the middle with just a bit of bitterness at the end.
