look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Appearance: After pouring, it takes a while for the nitro to settle into the head. Immediately after pouring, the mixture looks a bit like stirred-up miso soup. Thick, creamy, off-white head settles on a clear reddish-brown liquid.
Smell: Malty, slightly smoky sort of smell.
Taste: A bit of tartness (from the malt?) up front, which quickly segues into a herbal hop bitterness. Neither dry nor sweet. Finishes with a bitter/floral aftertaste. Flavour is a bit mild.
Mouthfeel: Feels "full" if that makes sense. Creamy and slick, but not syrupy or heavy. Mild carbonation nips at the tongue, but quickly washes away.
Drinkability: Goes down unbelievably easy. I could toss these back all night long, but nothing memorable except for the smooth feel.
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.
