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

A: Amber color with a poor, one-finger head that dies quickly.

S: Roasted malt is prominent.

T: Very smooth, a slight creamy taste and aftertaste with no bitter aftertaste. Slightly roasty which is a good thing for an amber.

M: Smooth taste, no water feel with a clean finish.

O: Not a bad beer. One of the better ambers, and I'm a guy who only prefers Belgium whites. Very satisfying with a clean enough finish but just enough flavor to make you want to drink more.

My wife has a friend that works for the Coors Brewery in Virginia and he got me some Killians for free

It has been a looong time since I had this beer in college (probably 10 years ago) and I remember it being decent on draft.

Smells ok nothing special

Decent taste do not taste anythign special, very dry mouth feel with a heavy after taste.

Bottom line it was a case (20 bottles) of free beer so I drank them all and it wasnt terrible...wouldnt spend my own money on it but if it was at a party, or my wifes buddy wants to get them for me again I wount turn it down.
