Killianís 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. Itís 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, Killianís is worth your time and money if priced with domestic macros.

BillWyce (959) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 15, 2016
Pours clear red-amber with a 1 1/2 finger off-white head. Aroma of nutty malt with a touch of caramel. Body is a bit lighter than medium, and somewhat watery. Brief finish. Caramelly flavor with some nutty malt notes. Maybe a touch of citrus underneath.

Xevious (78) - Amarillo, Texas, USA - MAR 18, 2016
Pours a near clear red with s bubbly head. No real aroma, just faint bread. Tastes of faint molded bread. Goes down watery. Nothing offensive, but nothing special. Drinkable.

tfontana (567) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 8, 2015
Draft pour into pint glass. Aroma is sweet caramel. Appearance is clear ruby red with small ring of head and little sparkle and no lacing. Taste is moderately sweet caramel and roasted malts. Palate is light to medium bodied with average texture, soft carbonation and sweet finish. Overall, not a nuanced beer by any means but if you like a fairly light beer that is full of caramel, this could do it for you.

Cunningham (6671) - Halden, NORWAY - NOV 21, 2015
A bit amber-ish color with a small off white head. Moderate and mild caramel and a bit bready aroma. Medium body and an ok carbonation. Mild caramel malty, bready and herbal flavor.
[Bottle from Roberth]
