ARH (1124) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 19, 2014
12 oz bottle poured into a shaker. The aromas are not very strong on this one, but what does appear is a cereal and grainy note with a faint caramel sweetness and an abundant damp and leather aroma. Itís a dark, but clear, amber-orange color (maybe more brown than orange) with a big white-ish, puffy head. When it reduces, it gets a swiss-cheese look to it. The head hangs around for a while until it reduces to a soda-fizz looking ring, but it leaves a good amount of puffy lace down the glass. The taste is a flat, medium-light sweetness and light bitterness. The mouth is light bodied (maybe medium bodied), thin texture, with lots of effervescent, fizzy carbonation. Thereís a flat citrus flavor in the mouth with a bit of nut flavor and a light caramel. There seems to be an underlying rye, or just generally grainy, flavor throughout. It finishes with a light toasty note and some grassiness. The aftertaste is mostly clean with a rye and cereal flavor that doesnít linger very long.

Barwa brazowa/brunatna, aromat palonego slodu ale ogolnie bardzo slaby. Goryczka niska, piana niska. Puste. Slabizna.

Bottle red label marked "premium Irish Ale". I suppose this is it since it matches the picture. Clear dark mahogany no head. Caramel and wood aroma, prickly toasted malt taste. Uninteresting.

Weak nasty tasteless nothingness is the only way to describe it i guess drinkable

Eindelijk een biertje! Terrasjes vinden is moeilijk in Ierland bij mooi weer, want dat is het niet zo vaak. Van de lokale brouwer waarvan wij het bier in Nederland kennen als Kilkenny. Prima!

500ml draught. Clear golden with one finger white head with fantastic retention. Soft floral aroma with some grass, citrus and grains. Light hoppy taste with floral notes, grass, citrus, hay and light grains. Medium, very smooth mouthfeel, light carbonation and slight bitter, fruity aftertaste.

This beer is not my favourite. It is missing something. The color is really nice red-orange and nice foam. The carbonation is low but it is normal for such kind beer. The taste is, in my point of view, watery. You can smell some fruits with the malt and it is missing some hop. It is not bad and drinkable. I think that it is the perfect pint to start a night but you donít have to drink an I.P.A before this one. I drank this beer in Dublin, lovely city and country.

UPDATED: MAR 8, 2016 I poured it from the bottle into a pint glass. It pours a red and amber color with a big beige head and little lacing. The aroma is weak with faint hints of caramel. The taste is corn malt, caramel, slightly roasty, and a light hint of bitter hops. It is smooth. It is always a decent and sessionable choice.
