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.
Red style beers have not been my favorites lately. When I first got into craft beers they were delicious but I am not enjoying them at all. This is just ok

From old tasting notes. Nice copper red color with a medium tan head. Mildly sweet toasted malt aroma. Sweet toasted malt flavor fades quickly and becomes salty, then gassy. Light dry finish and aftertaste. Thin and watery. Westy1130 (95) - New York, USA - APR 25, 2017
Medium amber color with medium head. Aroma is mostly roasted malts. Smooth and doughy on the palate. Taste: mostly corn, grass, and malt.
A step above typical adjunct lagers, but nothing special. PugUglyBrewer (658) - - APR 22, 2017
Rich, clear amber to copper color with a short-lived head of white foam. Traces of dried dark fruits and caramel malt overall. SOme dry grain and sweet floral and honey characters dancing around. scarletfire65 (1466) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 23, 2017
Bottle at Max’s Diner in Buffalo, after Mr. Gugino’s funeral :( Clean grainy aroma. A very nice red lager, sweet malts, grassy hops, not much complexity, but really drinkable.

Un bon ensemble pour une rousse mais un certain manque d’arôme, c’est dommage. WarEagle15 (1) - Ocilla, Georgia, USA - JAN 21, 2017 does not count

Much bread or bread crust. If that is what you are going for, then this is really good. Part of the reason I like this beer is that you cannot drink just one and you can still enjoy the taste of the second and third. Not very complex but it does not need to be. onceblind (9676) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 21, 2016
Clear rich Amber hue under a dissipating ivory cap. Golden brown bread toast on the aroma, with some lagery beery cracker tones. Semisweet flavor that has some light toast and light caramel/toffee, lager cracker, and a doughy bread toast finish. Like a bock but sweeter and amberish and much more blatantly lagery.
