3.03/5  rDev 0%
look: 3 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Poured into the Sam Adams Lager glass.

Appearance: Pours a red-amber hue with a moderate creamy head. The lacing on this beer isn't strong, but there is a little bit on occasion. There are some carbonation bubbles apparent in the brew.

Smell: Smells like a mix between malts and alcohol. I don't see much difference between this and other macros.

Taste: Starts with some malt taste, which gives way to grains and corn. There is a slight taste of hops on the finish, which is clean and crisp. There is nothing complicated here, but the taste itself isn't bad, unlike other macro lagers. This would be easy to enjoy on a Saturday afternoon with my friends.

Mouthfeel: Light, and with some crisp carbonation. Pretty standard for the style.

Drinkability: These are smooth and light, so they go down quite easily. Although this isn't even close to my favorite beer, it's something I can have when I'm not looking for something complex.

George Killian's Irish Red from Coors Brewing Company. Poured from the bottle into a pint glass, this brew's got no head, a mahogany brown (as in not red) body, and mostly adequate lacing.

I smell malts, but they smell a hair funky. I dunno...

Tastes like malts, yes. But not as roast-y and full as I would like it to be. This brew is not light; don't get me wrong. I just feel that it could use a touch more of ingredients.

Mouthfeel is generally clean and smooth. I actually want this to be a bit more viscous.

Overall a 3.25 for George Killian's Irish Red from Coors Brewing Company. I would have rated this brew higher if it had more of a savory theme going on. To me, this is just a hair too crisp. I may buy this brew again.
