Brewed for St. Patrick’s Day, Killarney was created to honor the Irish influence on Montana’s culture. Brewed first in February of 1988, before any other American breweries came out with their versions of an Irish Red style beer, Killarney is Jürgen’s invention of the beer style and one of his favorite Bayern beers. It is brewed with two-row pilsenser, caramel, Munich, wheat and German Dunkel malt. Bayern Killarney has an alcohol content of 5.7% Alc. by Vol. (14.2% Plato o.g.) and is available seasonally in draft and bottles.

[Bottle] Pours a really nice clear reddish copper with a small beige head. Aroma is really grainy, some sweet malt, and lager yeast. Flavor matches pretty well with a lingering sweetness on the finish. Nothing special, but not too bad either.

riversideAK (6040) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - MAR 5, 2009
Aroma is very toasty with a touch of sweet caramel malts. Some crisp hoppy bitterness too. Pours reddish/copper with a thin head. The flavor is very toasty with a touch of sweetness and a super crisp hop bitterness in the finish. I really like the clean crisp bitterness in the finish. Lagers are under rated. It is not barrel aged with lacto and brett, so it cant be any good I guess...

BlackDonald (1126) - Gulf Shores, Alabama, USA - AUG 18, 2008
This has a bit of a sweet aroma, some faint toasted caramel maltiness, a bit of citrus hoppiness. Definitely on the maltier side, with a bit of honey sweetness that lingers through into the finish. Not bad, but not great, but easy to drink.

theslats (6) - Idaho Falls, Idaho, USA - MAY 31, 2008 does not count
Pours a clean amber with a nice creamy head. Great head retention and a small bit of lacing. Slightly toasty malts with hints of honey and wheat bread. Some harsh tannins but not a deal breaker. Honey becomes more pronounced on the finish. Medium body and soft carbonation. Sessionable beer but the flavors are a touch fatiguing.

mbgrayson (696) - Anaconda, Montana, USA - MAY 17, 2008
UPDATED: MAR 21, 2009 This one pours dark amber with a small head. This is a smooth, well done beer. Hops are subdued and it’s nicely balanced. This is a seasonal brew from the Bayern Brewery in Missoula. Generally available from February till April.

goldmember (9) - Great Falls, Montana, USA - MAY 12, 2008 does not count
Pours copper color with thin khaki head that vanishes. Malts dominate with a hint of lemon and roastiness. Finishes with a slight hop bite. Very well balance of flavors. A little weak on carbonation and a bit watery but overall a very drinkable spring lager.
