Poured a 440-ml can into a pub ale glass.
Appearance - shimmering, cascading flow as the beer settled to an amberish- white cream head.
Smell - hops and malted barley, with a hint of both caramel and coffee.
Taste - wow! I'm impressed with the harmonious combination of nuttiness and caramel-vanilla. Pretty complex taste - enjoyable.
Mouthfeel - pretty decent, although just a touch more sparkle or bite would be good.
Drinkability - the low-alcohol, high-taste is a winner. Many of these could be put down in a night.
Serving type: nitro-can

I had this at Ri Ra at Mandalay Bay in Vegas. A very drinkable Irish ale - soft creamy mouthfeel. Nothing extraordinary but rather tasty. Lightly carbonated and malty - not extremely hoppy. A few hints of citrus bot nothing overt. It has a nice finish. Went perfectly with fish & chips.
Serving type: on-tap

Pours a dark ruby color and is covered with a nice and slightly cream colored head that stays around for a while.
Pleasant malty aroma, aroasted, and some nice caramel too.
The creamy beer has a nice bittery taste, some caramel here too and some coffee as well. Bitter aftertaste.
I used to not care about red beers, but now I have to say I really enjoy Kilkenny. Very drinkable.
