Bottle pours golden, small white frothy head, fairly active carbonation, with sparce lacing. Very light straw and clover aroma, with hints of honey. Mildly sweet on the tongue, definite honey and sweet grass. Flavor was clean, finish was crisp. Body and mouthfeel, while typically light to medium for a lager, felt quite robust for this one. I hesitated when buying this one, but glad I picked it up! envane (586) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 2, 2004
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 (478) - 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 (5257) - 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.

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. duff (5486) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 4, 2004

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 (1455) - 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!
