Killian's has become a beer of choice of mine lately at bars. Most places that don't carry stuff like Sierra Nevada or Bass have this.

Thank you, Coors. I'll give credit where credit is due.

Killian's Irish Red has a deep reddish color with an inch and a half of head. Ths beer has a nice aroma and smells richer than it actually is. Killian's drinks smooth, with a solid flavor that never overstates itself. It goes well with a lot of food, including my fav, pizza.

Anyway, Killian's is a great brew that's easy to find and great to drink. Cheers!

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.
