Kilkenny Irish Cream Ale

This 4.3% ABV beer is brewed by Guinness in Ireland. It comes in a can with a nitro widget to give it that surge on pouring, and creamy mouthfeel.

The beer pours amber in color, clear after the nitro surge subsides. There is an inch of perfectly creamy head, off-white to very, very light tan. The aroma is roasty, caramel, light fruits, with a mineral tang. The taste follows the aromas, light caramel, lightly roasted malt, just a touch of dark plum-like fruit, with that signature mineral tang of Guinness made products. It drinks extremely smooth and creamy. This is mild, but very pleasant.
