Killian's Irish Red was amber colored with just a bit of head that didn't last too long. There was even a little lace. The aroma was not too bad - a little caramelly and citrusy. Tastewise it was a bit caramelly with some sweetness, slightly nutty and citrusy. It also had some bite to it as well as some body. The finish was slightly dry and unremarkable. A mass produced American beer that actually had some taste.

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.
