Single finger head with nice lacing on a clear light amber body. Aroma is a little musty with mostly sweet caramel malt and mild hops. Flavor is pretty sweet mostly following the caramel malt with a musty hop finish. Medium body and moderate to high carbonation. Overall a drinkable beer limited mostly by its mildly musty and bitter finish.

I poured a bottle into a mug.

Appearance- Deep copper red with a two finger head. Decent amount of foamy lacing.

Smell- Malty and slightly nutty.

Taste- Mildly sweet malt with caramel and nutty notes.

Mouthfeel- Light bodied and smooth. Nice carbonation and slightly dry at the finish.

Overall- I really enjoy this beer. I think the only reason some of the beer snobs don't is because it is made by Coors.

will always be one of my favorite beers on tap!! i used to work for a distributor in ohio that was the bigggest seller of killians in the country. the beer is great but the company sucked to work for. always suprised me that it doesn't sell more to the mainstream but i guess thats a good thing

Sweet beer. It's too sweet.

A-Dark brown, I tried to give it a head, still NO head. The head just doesn't exist.

S- Sweet, light

T- Chocolate, Grains, with a sweet aftertaste. It feels almost like a soda it's so sweet. I'm more of a bitters guy so this beer doesn't get me off

M- No head at all, so it isn't fluffy. It's pretty plain.

O- I give this beer a 2.5. It's just too sweet. Would not recommend
