Poured an amber body with a nitro cascade that settled into a clear amber body with one finger of thick, creamy head. A very good looking pub ale, quite appealing. Scents of caramel, low toffee character and very light toasted malt and grassy hop aromas. Overall impression of aroma is of a clean, malty ale, true to style and pleasing. Flavor begins moderately sweet with notes of caramel and toast. Middle is medium dry, moving into flavors of lightly toasted bread and light toffee. Finish is medium-dry with a light roasted malt flavor, toffee, and toast. Aftertaste is lightly roasted malt and toasted, nutty malt. Overall impression is of a malt-forward ale that begins modestly sweet and finishes nicely dry. Very pleasant. Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy with medium body and light carbonation. Overall impression of mouthfeel is of a good Irish Red Ale, very pleasing. Overall this is a nice Irish Red. It has a true to style aroma and flavor with a creamy good mouthfeel. A good, simple pub ale.

Nothing beats a creamy Kilkenny. Easily one of my top three favourite beers worldwide.

Served on Nitro, in a pint glass

Medium red in color, thick creamy foam from the nitro pour. Very mild in aroma and taste. Very easy drinking, smooth.

My favorite beer by Guinness. Poured in tumbler. Ruby red with white finger and a half head. Smell is dry and malty, smells like a Guinness stout. Thick nitrogenated head to light syrup mouthfeel almost water like but slicker. Sweetish, dry.
