There is nothing red about the color of this beer, furthermore, it is a light bodied, malt balanced, and rather boring ale. I would place it in the same league as Coors’ Killians.

Very sweet (as others have stated). Unimpressive flavor and you can’t even pretend that there is any hop presence in this beer. To it’s credit, it was very smooth (I asked if this was a lager at first) and quenched my thirst. Special thanks to the neighbor who saw me sweating while making real beer and brought over something ’new’ to quench my thrist. It worked for that.

Delbomber (387) - Philadelphia, USA - AUG 30, 2001
Red amber with almost no head. Smells like yeast and tastes like yeast. Hinting (probably just my imagination) at caramel. Overall very watery and slightly dry with a bitter finish. Why bother? Killian’s is no masterpiece, but it has some qualities other than yeast.

fishman (350) - Philadelphia, USA - AUG 30, 2001
Amber with a rocky head. Very yeasty with a sweet taste to it. When the word ’engineered’ is used by the brewer to describe his beer, it can’t be good.

   AROMA 4/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 4/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 9/20
VENOM (941) - Connecticut, USA - AUG 24, 2001
Very thin, very light and very forgettable. Nice looking but there’s barely an aroma and the little malt flavor evident gets swallowed by the soda syrup like sweetness. A hint of hoppy aroma and flavor emerges but quickly gets back in the closet. Not much here, nothing I’d buy again. Clearly ’engineered’ for the masses who think Killarney’s is a true Irish Red.
