George Killian's Irish Red has been my go to beer for years. I have been branching out and trying other beers but I always come back to this one. Before I even new what I liked in beer, I found this to be my favorite. Definitely a must try. And if you don't like it, you can send me the rest of the six pack and I'll drink it for you.

This used to be my go to beer since it's brewed here in Colorado. I still like it and it's a good beer to kick back and relax to and kick one or two back. Beer pours out a copper red with some head not much lacing. Good smell but nothing special. Taste like a red ale even though it's a lager beer still does have smooth taste. Great beer made by Coors.

This is an average red ale, it pours an off white head and leaves some lancing on the glass.

Clean, smooth, full body, nice flavors in and easy drinking beer. Good price usually. Not for the Hop obsessed, however.
