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. Theres 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!

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.

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 Im in the mood for a lager, screw the Millers and Buds, and pass me an Kells Irish.

[email protected] Brewery. Didn;t know what it was when i had it, now i found out its a lager and im still confused. Whatever it is, it wasnt 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.

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.

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 wasnt feeling it!

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.

Beautiful, beautiful color. Pretty tight white head. Thirst quenching, plenty of hops, though the palate was somewhat dissapointing. Still a good beer though, Rouge is my favorite, i haven;t had a beer from the brewery that wasnt awsome.
