Kinz (3713) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - OCT 4, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 29, 2015 Nitro tap, dark tan appearance, creamy lasting head. Sort of a boring beer. Not much other than a hint of hop bitterness, and a strong caramel flavor malt aspect. Update when sampled on tap at RVC. No change. Reminds me of what Killians had been like back in the day.

kumite56 (473) - Cordova, Tennessee, USA - SEP 30, 2003
UPDATED: NOV 10, 2003 Decent beer. Creamy off-white head with mod lacing on a dark amber body. Aroma is malty and as you would expect, the taste is lightly sweat/malty as well. Additionally, some bitterness and dry hoppy character is present as well. Good effort and drinkable.

From a can. A little flat. Good malt flavor. Slightly hoppy. Very dissapointing, not a good beer.

This is an excellent beer, from pour to finish. I can't believe I've never had this before, but I WILL have it again. It pours a caramel color and smells hoppy. The taste is not quite what I expected..thick yet light somehow. It is full bodied and has little bitter aftertaste.

hopscotch (10557) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 24, 2003
Sparkling clear, copper colored ale. Medium-sized, fizzy, off-white head. The aroma is of light caramel and butterscotch along with an unpleasant metallic twang. The flavor is barely better than an American standard rice beer. A touch more malty and fruity. Decently balanced. Very astringent. Medium-bodied with a an silky mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Short, crisp, clean, lightly bitter finish.

vwsteggie (684) - Paxton, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 8, 2003
Has a nice red color and a sweet malted smell. Taste is malted and has a slight hopped finish. Overall one of the better reds, but I am not a big fan of the reds...

mikeben (355) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - SEP 6, 2003
UPDATED: JAN 3, 2008 Cremmy and sweet this is a great brew. It is a more authentic version of Kilians and quite tasty. Had it in a pub on tap and like it very much. Not overwellmed but it’s darn good.

The appearance was a medium sized ivory creamy, smooth head that contained fine-large sized bubbles.It had a clear and carbonated body with a reddish-brown hue.The nose was light malt and hops with a smooth and hoppy flavor.The mouthfeel of this beer is smooth and light-medium bodied.This beer left a good lacing on the side of my glass.

thedm (5557) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - SEP 5, 2003
This brew poured a large head of mostly lasting finely sized off-white bubbles that left a good lacing and a transparent light brown softly carbonated body behind. The aroma is mild with malt and hop notes while the mouthfeel is smooth with a little hop bitterness to it in the finish. There is definately a "Red" taste to it. The flavor contains elements of malt, hops, a spicey redness.
