2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
DATE TASTED: August 3, 2013 ... GLASSWARE: Samuel Adams Boston Lager... OCCASION: watching Money Ball--and loving it!... APPEARANCE: handsome black and tan split-level body; thin white head that staggers on its reddish-brown base--looks inviting... AROMA: fragrant caramel malts breath a bready blast; sugary suggestions as well... PALATE: medium-to-light bodied with a swift, soft aftertaste--a red in the pattern of the many during its mid-90s deluge that we came of drinking age to at college...TASTE: strongly malted base forms the brunt of this old-time Hess Tavern offering; rather flat, rounded ops that profile as an ESB, though not enough hops surface to make an ale; a bit buttery too--but more in the feel than in the taste; the after drag is slightly warm and rough... OVERALL: a lagered, emasculated ESB that fulfills its March Ides duty but cannot demand much more on a cool summer night such as this...recently I toasted the anniversary of my wife and I by romantically recalling this beer set next to mine (a Honey Brown) on a college bar basement table; out of context, Killians looks nice in that oddly-necked bottle, but now under Coorsí auspices, one can see what is and is not present in this beer...

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
I found this beer at Hipermaxi in Cochabamba, Bolivia (22 Bs). Really nice standard Red Ale. Nice medium bitter taste with a good flavour overall. The aftertaste fell a little flat but not an issue. I would recommend this to anyone whose looking for a Red in Bolivia.
I canít speak to some of the more specific features of this beer as I donít feel knowledgeable enough. However, I need this second paragraph to reach the 75 word minimum.

Pours a deep amber with an off white head. Aroma of malt. Taste the same with a little hop finish. Not bad would probably have a higher rating if wasnít made by one of the big brewers.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear, amber colored, off white small head. Aroma is of some malt and caramel, bit fruity. Taste is medium sweet malt and caramel, some fruity and bready notes, light grassy bitterness. Some cardboard as well. Medium to light bodied, soft carbonation. Nothing interesting but drinkable...

Ambarina con reflejos anaranjados, espuma cremosa por nitrůgeno en barril. Ausencia de diacetil, de maltas tostadas y caramelizadas. En boca mŠs de lo mismo. Realmente es una Lager industrial con colorante artificial simulando una Irish Red. Trampantojo clarŪsimo.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Originally rated on 9/20/08. Killians pours a nice amber body with a mid sized white cap. Mouthfeel is a little thin but not too bad. Slight flavor and aroma of roasted malt with a very slight hop bitterness. An above average macro beer.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

Bbq beer. Had lots of times, never rated? Better than most macros. Malt and caramel and doughy. Not good but hey.

Bottle poured clear copper with a thick white head and nice lacing. Aromas of caramel malt, biscuits, and raisens. Flavor is medium sweet. Refreshing.

Good beer not amazing but for an Irish red it is drinkable but not as good as some other Irish reds....
