George Killian's Irish Red.

A- Very clean copper-brown color with an off white head that falls to a small foam rim around the glass. Small amount of lacing but there.

S- Smells like fresh cut wood and burt carmel malts. Scent is finished with a mild ferment smell.

T- Is very busy with malts and barley. Very carmel malt flavor with a hint of wood.

M-D- Mouthfull is very mild to full bodied. Smooth and flavorable make this beer a good drinkable beer...sometimes.

A: Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a pint glass. Nice clear ruddy color. Minimal to no head with zero lacing. Did I mention it had nice color?

S: Not real impressed with the smell. To be honest, I would have been hard pressed to distinguish this from any other macro lager.

T: A little disappointing. Was expecting something more flavorful and a touch of sweet malts similar to other reds. Instead it was much like other macro lagers. Not bad. Not great.

M&D: Mouthfeel was about average. The carbonation present in the brew was rather light, albeit consistent. This in and of itself isn't bad but there wasn't much else there to bring up the mouthfeel at all. I don't know if this is something I would ever ask for again but I wouldn't turn down a free one if offered.

Appearance – Yes, this one is light red in color with brownish tints and it is very clear and shiny. The good head dissipated rather quickly.

Smell – The light American grain and ultra-light citrusy hops gave this one a distinctly US Euro Lager aroma. The malts were nice and toasty though and there wasn’t anything offensive in there, which is saying a lot.

Taste – The toasty malts actually come out pretty decent at the taste. The light hopping makes it to the tongue as well. Not bad.

Mouthfeel – This light-bodied Lager is clean with a drying finish.

Drinkability – This is as good as a Coors gets.
