When I was in college, Killians was a beer that made me feel like I had arrived. In 25 years things have changed. Gone is the burnt red coloring, now its an orangish red. Gone are the burnt aromas, now is the metallic sweetness of a cheap beer. Gone are the dry burnt feelings of a tasteful Irish Red. I understand when a beer is changed to appeal to the masses, certainly cost is a determinant, but I feel violated when a beer is assaulted this way.
