A weak, heavily commercialized "red ale". If I've already had enough to where I don't care about taste, it's fine to session with. Otherwise, pass. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

It doesn’t have an overly strong aroma. It is medium amber in color. The head dissipates fairly fast. The taste was okay, but nothing stands out.

Metalchopz (2208) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 27, 2013
Enjoyed at David’s place in Vegas. Pours a deep amber colour with bubbly yellow cap, good retention and creamy-foamy lace. Malty nose with caramel and roasted malts. Hints of coffee too. Burnt malt taste that lingers, all mildly of course. Not a bad red with decent roasted malts, just a little too light overall.

HQT Night. light colored.... doesn’t pour red... tested this beer with red ales, which really isn’t fair. certainly not a good beer when competing against red ales. Overall though. it was drinkable... and much better than an Coors typical American lager.

JustPlainLogan (51) - Galveston, Texas, USA - OCT 7, 2013
This pours out a deep copper color without much head. The taste is slightly sweet with a good level of malt. I keep meaning to try this beer with hot wings (those of you who have tried it will know what I mean), but I can’t seem to have both this beer and hot wings at the same time. It just doesn’t happen.

Dark copper colour not much of a head. Mild aroma of malt, balanced taste a bit sweet, slight malt, creamy palate.

A very hearty red ale from killians. Really malty in flavor with a bitter aftertaste. Pours a dark red in color. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
