A-B's take on an Irish style red falls far short of the mark. Heavy without body, slightly sweet without malt. Somewhat tangy without hops balance. Bland beer with red food coloring.
Killarney’s Irish Red Lager--2001 12 oz. Bottle. 4.50% ABV. (3.75 / 5.0) Amber Lager. Light head. Clear bright thin amber color. Tangy crisp mild hop front. Thin crisp mild butter caramel dry sweet mellow fruit body. Refreshing crisp slightly tangy mild hop end. Surpisingly fresh tasty BUD. Sampled 3/16/2006.

12oz bottle. Light red color, medium head. Light taste, some malts, and slight hops. Light body. Somewhat typical of American mass produced beers. Another bad attempt by a macro to try to make a micro. BlackDonald (1126) - Gulf Shores, Alabama, USA - AUG 8, 2008
Back before I knew what craft beer was, I used to find this quite drinkable. As mich as I hate to admit that. Amber coloring( food grade caramel coloring ), with a fizzy and quickly fading white head. This is no longer enjoyable. NJBeerman013 (1054) - Hamilton Twp., New Jersey, USA - MAY 8, 2008
Draft. This sure wan’t a Killians, wasn’t even close. However, it was drinkable, not very enjoyable, but drinkable nonetheless. HueyBryan (40) - Rotan, Texas, USA - SEP 4, 2007
Tried this long ago and it was a poorly made rip off of Killians. sad when a huge company like AB can’t get it right..

amber, sweet corn (?) aroma, lots of sweet malt flavor, no bitterness, actually ok brewed with 100% irish whisky malt
Aroma: 5/10; Appearance: 5/10; Flavor: 5/10; Palate: 5/10; Overall: 10/20
The score was calculated based upon the notes and an old scoring system.
If its sold at the supermarket id rather have this than any other macro. Its light bodied and light flavored and the color is probably faked too. But its not that bad, has some hopiness and caramel malts, good carbonation and dry finish. patrick767 (4115) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - FEB 26, 2006
bottle - Can A-B any more obviously try to rip off Killian’s? It’s a decent looking beer, amber with a bit of a head. The aroma and flavor are dominated by malts. The body is thin and the finish short and clean. It’s okay, but I’m not impressed. I haven’t seen this beer much lately so I’m guessing the attempt to market it like a Killian’s clone didn’t work out too well for A-B. oldrtybastrd (5003) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 27, 2005
Pours a nice medium amber color. Aromas of malt and maybe something sweet. Flavor is bland, watery, and bland. Cornboy (424) - Eastampton, New Jersey, USA - OCT 26, 2005
Didnt realize this was an AB product, had it during st pats in Philly 2003.
We had a bucket of them, very thin mouthfeel with a touch of malt in the finish. A poor try to push into new markets, but decent for AB
