look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

A - Very red, not even really much amber color, two fingers of head that dissipates quickly but leaves a lot of pretty lacing. Medium carbonation.

S - The worst thing about this beer. Dirt? Mold? Corn? Kinda like much-worse American macros, actually.

T - The taste is far different from the smell. Very sweet and easy. Chocolate and toast, honey and MAYBE coffee, but less so.

M - More creamy than anything else. Enough carbonation, and doesn't hang in your mouth for an unattractive amount of time.

O - For being one of those beers that you think is a craft/microbrew before you know what those actually are, this ain't half bad, and there's all kinds of things I'd choose this over. It should also be noted that there is a massive difference in overall goodness when you compare Killian's out of a bottle vs. out of a tap. Tap wins almost every time.
