Chilled is perfect and doesn't numb the tastebuds so much that its subtle flavors are lost. Kilkenny is full of subtle flavors similar to its aromas, but the main takeaway is that it is smooth, crisp and refreshing – perfect for a hot summer day. Apart from that, not much stands out as memorable.
While Kilkenny is technically a red, it tastes mild and creamy thanks to its unique bottling style that uses 50 percent less carbonation than most beers. It's still an excellent full-flavored choice for St. Patrick's Day, and it would taste great alongside a slice of Irish soda bread.
