Killian’s is a nice reddish brown with a decent head and a great aroma of a sweet darker beer, although it seems to stagnate pretty quickly. It’s thin in body for what it is, and is relatively standard in all aspects of flavor except for its slightly annoying caramel-chocolate malting that becomes more apparent with the more you drink (which makes it a really bad choice for pairing with a meal). A pretty good sipper, Killian’s is worth your time and money if priced with domestic macros.

Eructoblaster (3363) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 25, 2015
Bottle - 12oz. Amber body with a fading, off-white foamy head. Fair malty aroma with brown sugar hints. Its bland malty taste carries bready, brown sugar, and grassy notes. Ends with a short metallic finish. Boring.

A colored coorsi think with a little malt added to it. Was great to drink in high school to look cool. But hats only upside. Oh color is neat!

Bread, malt in the aroma pours a brilliantly clear Amber red with a thin beige head. Clean lager character with a little bit of body.

No, it’s not a craft beer. Great taste, strong finish, and great flavor overall. For a domestic, I like the suds and rich carmel flavor it offers.
