Kilkenny was all over Connecticut while I lived there. Haven't really been on a lookout since that time,but Kilkenny is simply a less pleasing verison of Guiness IMO. It's as common as Guinness up here pretty much, I had no idea it was so uncommon in the US.Is there an American version of Irish Cream Ale?
Some American beer aficionados might consider it too neutral and perhaps watery in nature, but that is exactly what makes this cream ale unique. It is presently not marketed in mass in the United States, however a number of Irish Pubs across the country will often have it on draft.
