Nice dark amber orange color with an off-white foamy head that falls to a creamy ring. Leaves only spots of foam stuck to the glass, not what I'd call lacing.
Light malty sweetness and a bit of tartness.
Lightly roasted malts and caramel that is pretty sweet. You can tell there are hops though not much and a hint of bitterness / tartness that barely lingers and cuts the sweet just enough.
Appearance is kind of deceptive in that the body is fairly thin and has a very long lasting carbonation tingle. Not as sharp as coke but maybe root beer... though root beer is heavier.
This one is pretty light and crisp with enough taste to not be boring. Not quite as good as my fridge beer (Newcastle) but this would do in a pinch.
Not a bad brew and readily available in all of my local liquor stores.

Reddish amber color. Head poured to a finger and a half, dissipates in about a minute.
This smells adjuncty.
Light and grassy with a touch of light malt on the beginning. Gets a little spice and more grass and light garden notes toward the end.
Light bodied. Washes down easy. Good for a lawnmower would be my guesss.

Pleasantly surprised with this one!
I'm not one to go for a macro brewed beer but when the option was Killian's or Bud Lite, naturally I went with Killian's.
I can't accurately judge the look or smell, but the taste was not bad...dare I say I actually kind of enjoyed it and might even try one again. What I picked up was a smooth buttered popcorn taste from the malts with the slightest hint of a sweet undertone.
Overall I enjoyed it, but nothing special.
Serving type: on-tap
