Although I don't have the beer in my hand, I've tried Killian's numerous times. I feel the need to express that this is far from a good representation of an amber lager. The notes are too bitter, the hops are too harsh, and the aftertaste is absolutely disgusting. Like puke in a bottle. There aren't many beers I review off the cuff like this, but don't be deceived - this is a macro adjunct lager, disguised with red dye and bitter hops added. Yeasty cornbread copper with a touch of faint maple syrup and antiseptic, ending bitter and dry. So distinct I remember what it tastes like. I'd take a Coors Original over their attempt at this "Red" Lager. It does have a great smell, but other than that the only pros are image and price.

I just reviewed Nordeast and I suggest you give that a try if it's available in your area.
