When the cap opened?
Have a sweet herb aroma.

How’s the taste?
The beer taste of herb sweetness, with slight sour with nice fizziness. It has a nice carbonation going on. With some complex bitter taste at the end. At 6.3% ABV it is something unique in taste, refreshing kind of mint cool end. The after taste will bring out some light bitter herb aroma.

What’s the colour?
Dark Brown.

How’s the Bottle design?
Nothing much interesting, quite typical.

Where to get?
Drank it in Brux-Ale.

My Opinion:
The taste is this beer is quite similar with the Floreffe Prima Melior. which have those western herb sweetness and taste. Is very refreshing to the tongue after drinking it. I think it can pair with some spicy food as well, as quite soothing to the tongue and throat. I should try it out one day… cheers!

Kilkenny Launches Its Premium Beer In A Bottle In Time For The Festive Season

November 26, 2020 – 10:08 am 5 Comments

Traditionally a draught beer only available in bars, pubs and restaurants, Kilkenny will be launching the unique taste and texture of ‘Kilkenny Beer’, in a bottle. Available to consumers at restaurants, food courts as well as pubs and bars across Malaysia from the 1st of December 2010, the move will make this premium beer more accessible to consumers in time for the festive season.

‘Kilkenny is fast becoming a rising star in our stable of premium brands with a steady increase in demand and sales. Malaysians are increasingly seeking out to try premium beers and we knew that by launching Kilkenny in a bottle, it would allow them to purchase it more conveniently giving more consumers the opportunity to enjoy this exceptional brew, ‘ said Tai See Wai, Marketing Manager of Kilkenny.

‘We are excited about launching Kilkenny in a bottle to consumers, allowing them to enjoy its distinctive taste, aroma and color in a more accessible way, “he continued.

Kilkenny was first brewed on the grounds of Ireland’s oldest brewery in a small town called Kilkenny where it gets its pedigree heritage. This premium beer originates from the St. Francis Abbey brewery, the oldest operating Irish brewery that has been producing great beers since 1710. Almost 300 years later, Kilkenny has become one of Ireland’s most internationally successful beers, and now winning the hearts of local Malaysians who want to try a different brew.

An Irish ale, rich in history, Kilkenny pours a nice ruby red with a golden glow when held up to the light. It possesses a distinctive full flavoured taste that beer aficionados can enjoy responsibly. This unique quality of Kilkenny is shared by both Kilkenny in a bottle and draught making it the preferred switch for beer lovers from their customary brew.

‘Kilkenny is one of my favourite beers as it is smooth and light. I think that it’s a great step to produce it in bottle form as it enables consumers to purchase it easily and more conveniently’ said Deepak Gill who runs a popular blog called CockTales.
‘I absolutely love Kilkenny because of its unique taste. It’s not as heavy as a stout but not as light as a lager either. It is the perfect combination for me.’ said Micheal Cheang, a beer aficionado and blogger who own the blog Eyeris.

The refreshing characteristics of Kilkenny make it great for those who want to just enjoy a social evening out with friends and the perfect accompaniment with food. With all that great food especially during the upcoming Christmas season, you certainly need a remarkable beverage to match. So be sure to head out and ask for Kilkenny in a bottle for the perfect beverage this Christmas season.

Things That Are Salah – No Beer Parking

November 25, 2020 – 9:47 am 7 Comments

This week lesson is please don’t park your beer. The picture above happen at Sid’s Beerfest when Sid’s announce that the last few barrel are free flow, people start lining up and take their beer. This is what happen in one of the table. Only 2 guys but full of beer. When I ask them why take so much, they said got friends coming.

For me the reason no parking on beer because the beer will turn warm. When the beer get warm is quite pointless to drink and it can get to you quite fast as well. Why waste the beer although is free?

Don’t park your beer, because you’ll will not enjoy the taste that much. You may enjoy free beer but I quite doubt you’ll enjoy the drink.
