That is a great article. Thanks to Denny for bringing it to my attention.

I think you need to dress like the guy in portrait to get the full Irish Red experience.

Killian’s is among the reddest of the Irish Reds.

This beer is not too dark at all. In fact, it is proving to be lighter than what I first expected.

No "roastiness" at all. Even with the 8 ounces of roast barley.

Very nice aroma. Have not sample the ale yet, just the lager.

edit: There is a hint of roast aroma, with the sample sitting at 80 degrees. At serving temp, very little if any roast.

Here are the final numbers.

OG - 1.049
FG - 1.007 5.3% ABV (Diamond)

FG - 1.014 4.6% ABV (S-04)

This promises to be a good drinking beer, both the ale and the lager.
