This is the Snobby Beer review of Killian’s Irish Red from Coors Brewing Company in Golden, Colorado. Killian’s is an amber/red lager, and is available year-round. According to the website, Killian’s started as a more traditional Irish Red Ale. George Killian supposedly wanted to share his beer so much that he brought it to America. Whether or not this story is true, nobody can deny the fact that this is one of the most widely available beers on the market in America today.
From the George Killian’s website:
Deep ruby red in color with a dense off-white foam.
Roasted and toasted caramel characteristics with ale-like fruit esters.
Toasted/roasted caramel malt introduction with nice bready characteristics.
Full-bodied with medium carbonation.
Well-balanced with slight lingering citrus rind and subtle sweetness.”
