Leathery red color with a thin off-white head. Sweet malt and earthy hops in the nose. Aggressively sweet tasting, with cherry-like malt, a kiss of woody vomit, and a clean finish. Medium bodied with modest carbonation. Not that great.

I used to dig this beer as a change of pace. It's still ok but pales in comparison to the crafts out there. Everything is fine but it has a touch of an off flavor. Looks good though. So take a picture of it.

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.
