12 oz can, poured into a pint glass

Appearance: Pours a beautiful, clear, golden, amber color with a half of a finger of cascading white-colored head that once settled, formed a half of a finger of creamy, pillowy, head that completely covered the top of the beer. That head was retained throughout the drinking experience.

Aroma: Nice aromas of bready, biscuit-like toasted malt, imparting aromas of freshly baked French baguettes and English muffins, as well as aromas of caramel and toffee, a touch of black pepper and heather.

Taste: Ah, delicious and satisfying! Lots of bready, toasted malt up front, followed by lots of caramel and toffee-like sweetness, hits of black pepper, coriander and floral, grassy, heather and clover. No hops to speak of. Delicious!

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied and extremely smooth and creamy, as there is no carbonation what-so-ever. In fact, this beer is nitrogenized with a nitro widget in the can so it’s an extremely smooth and creamy beer. With an ABV of 43.3%, there is no alcohol on the palate.

Overall: Kilkenny is one of my favorite Irish beers, one of my favorite beers, period! Malty, sweet, tasty, satisfying, crushable, session-able and delicious!

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