My wife has a friend that works for the Coors Brewery in Virginia and he got me some Killians for free

It has been a looong time since I had this beer in college (probably 10 years ago) and I remember it being decent on draft.

Smells ok nothing special

Decent taste do not taste anythign special, very dry mouth feel with a heavy after taste.

Bottom line it was a case (20 bottles) of free beer so I drank them all and it wasnt terrible...wouldnt spend my own money on it but if it was at a party, or my wifes buddy wants to get them for me again I wount turn it down.

look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

A: Red, transparent lively head that dissipates within a few minutes

S: smells just like an average beer, a little bit of roasted malt might be detectable, not too much going on

T: smooth and refreshing slightly creamy. not very complex but it is enjoyably for the style that it is

M: not much carbonation, smooth finish. definitely a beer you could quaff down with ease no bite at all

O: overall a good cheap beer when not much else is readily available, Coors does this brew much better than their counterparts. Something that i will drink from time to time
