Left by a friend at a recent tasting - he said to go ahead and enjoy it on my own.
A - very little head upon pour, but retains a light lace. amber/red in color, as i expected.
S - grassy, slightly floral and earthy. some cereal sweetness rounds-out as swirls in my glass.
T - initial bready/cereal sweetness leaning toward a hint of caramel. grassy bitterness comes through at finish and lingers. crisp.
M - a little thick for me - I would prefer it if the mouthfeel complimented the crisp taste.
O - i didn't think i would care much for this, but i actually enjoy it. the light caramel/cereal sweetness with the grassy aromas and crisp finish fit in well with the beautiful weather we are having today in the Twin Cities.

This beer pours, from the can, a dark amber color with a plentiful cap of foam. The lager has an inviting aroma with a wonderful mixture of clean barley malts and bittering hops. The accent on malt is a nice touch. A smooth and clean feel on the on the palate leads to caramel notes with a slightly bitter, nicely balanced, finished. A great refreshing beer to enjoy while at the ballpark.

Oooh, such a lovely copper color, bright and clear. Lively streams of bubbles, lots of em. Head is a pale, light tan with white highlights, develops a thick pitted head with excellent lacing forming only a minute after the pour. The lacing is the absolute best I've seen from a BMC product. Aroma is full of crip floral hops. A powerful nose. Some fruits, a slight pleasent mustiness, a slight spiciness. A big sip brings a front-end maltyness, with bready caramel notes, followed by more of those crisp, vigorous hops. The hops are great; more flavor and less bitterness. Lots of fruit, apples and tangerines. A bit of oily bitterness remains on the palette after swallowing. The thick head is still sticking around close to halfway through the glass. The only real con to this beer is an aggressive carbonation that comes right through the medium-light body, adding a prickliness to the lingering hops finish. This was the only real flaw to me in this beer; while great tasting, I could see the mouthfeel making drinking a few of these a bit of a chore
This is ithe greatest beer Coors has ever brewed. Clealry a beer based on marekting and a bit gimicky, but on the other hand, this is a great tasting beer featuring all Colorado ingredients and "only" available in this, the greatest of states. A beer to be proud of, no matter who it's from.
