So it's been six months since Coors banquet has graced Canada...so yeah that's a thing...onto the review.

Appearance: A clear golden body that boasted a strong finger and a half of head that did not lace but did manage to keep a consistent layer of carbonation to hide the body from the top at least.

Smell: It smells...I guess like pond water. Not quite the refreshing breeze of lake water, but neither the swampy moss smell of swamp water. Somewhere in between. There's a note of wet corn husk also in there in the background. Can't really say there's a lot of desirable smell going on here, it's not really offensive, but I suspect it will be watered down.

Taste: This kinda strikes me as a meet in the middle adjunct. I mean the ever present sweet corn taste is there, but it's not out of control as a milder boiled barley taste is present that sorta brings it more towards a more desirable lager as the beer goes on. Barest kick of mossy hops at the end which carry a slight metallic tinge to the experience, but not an outrageous one.

Mouthfeel: The carbonation does help out the entire beer, which is rare in a beer of this style. The beer is very crisp and leaves a mild sweet corn and barley aftertaste that sadly near the end begins to tack on a metallic afterthought.

Drinkability: This beer doesn't settle down as well as it should, as it leaves me a bit gassy. Light bodied and refreshing so a great summer drinker, but less I'd inclined for the winter months. For some reason I can see it going hand in hand with shellfish for some reason.

Final Thoughts: The "Banquet Beer" as it's currently being advertised here offers a revelation to it's name. How many Banquets have you been to, where the food alright or good but certainly wasn't exceptional? Myself, not a lot as the cooks generally need to make enough food quickly for everyone. See the parallel on this one? So Coors is an alright beer, but if not for being a large producer whose name you cannot escape, it is a rather unremarkable beer. It's certainly not an unquaffable brew, but really this beer exemplifies a just plain average beer.

12oz brown bottle. No freshness dating.

Pours a golden hued pale / yellowy brew, with a slow moving tight carbonation that forms a quick lived snappy head that settles to a decent white-ringed lace.

Faint notes of grain in the nose, hint of floral.

Fairly smooth on the palate, tight and tingly carbonation scrubs and livens with a bit of a creamy feel being created. Crisp. Even mouthfeel, with a distinct mineral quality. Subtle sweetness blends with a watery lemon-lime-rind-like hop character with a splash of bitterness to balance out the malty sweetness. Clean finish, with little residuals, though adjunct flavors and a rougher feel on the palate become more pronounced as the beer warms.

Coors Original is a bit more flavorful vs. some of its competitiors, with a fuller, more rounded body. For what it is, and keeping the style in mind (unlike most of the other reviewers) ... it ain't all that bad.

Appearance – Clear yellow carbonated body with a good-sized head that disappeared in a flash.

Smell – Typical grain and corn aroma with a whiff of alcohol.

Taste – This is really an empty flavor. Straight corn, and that’s all I could come up with.

Mouthfeel – The carbonation isn’t bad for a macro brew, but there’s certainly nothing else in here that would please the mouth.

Drinkability – Unless you’re a big fan of Cornish Ale, I would skip this one.

This is the first beer I ever tried and it is the beer I grew up with, so it has a special place in my beer drinking history....but that does not make up for the fact that it is a average brew. It pours a light golden color with a decent head, and it smells processed right off the bat. There is no definable smell from the beer other than cheap and the taste is very bitter unless it is out of a bottle. Out of the bottle, I can detect a little bit of hops in there but not much, and it still has a little of that bitter quality. And it is not a bitter in a good sense, it is bitter as in skunky. I guess if you are in need of a cheap macro, this is better than Bud, but not something I would ever choose unless it was in complete desperation.

not really sure what the difference is here with the regular coors lineup....i know its called coors banquet but what does that actually mean? does it mean its a special version of the regular coors or is it all coming out of the same tank? either way, i snagged this on a hot day at my local convenient store because it was cheap and accessible

honestly this beer was not all that bad, it was super drinkable on a hot day but you can tell something is wrong as well....it just doesn't taste like the beer is made from real ingredients, the head on the beer quickly disappeared after pouring in the glass, the aroma was nonexistent....it just seems like a beer that came rolling off the assembly line

the mouthfeel was light bodied, it sure was drinkable and i guess that is what they are going for but it just did not have enough character to really merit any outstanding reviews

but fwiw it does a good job at what i think the intention was
