3.43/5 rDev +34.5%
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.

3.9/5 rDev +52.9%
Just got home from my usual bike ride after work. Picked up some banquet bottles in the aluminum pints. Never had it this way before and quite frankly I'm excited. Budweiser was better in the aluminum pints, and if this follows suit we'll have a fairly positive review on our hands.
Serving Style : 16 oz Aluminum Pint Bottle with screw on cap
Smell (3.5) : Hints of apple, canned light pear, cooked sweet corn. That's about it. Pleasant to smell.
Taste (3.75) : Good. Refreshing. Fizzy apple wheat notes and smooth lager taste. Slightly sweet cornbread, distant hints of green apple. Ends with a faint lager bitterness that dries nicely on the palate. This beer is seriously refreshing tonight.
Mouthfeel (4) : Fizzier than other macro full-flavor lagers, but that fizziness increases drinkability quite a bit. Ends crisp and dry. There are no off-notes or unsatisfactory finishes. I freaking want another. Drinkability is an A+. This was just what my parched thirst needed tonight.
Overall (3.9) : I am trying my hardest not to beam tonight. If I gave a rating for overall satisfaction of what this beer is doing to me right now, I'd give it a 5 hands down. But I know Coors is not a "5" beer every night and on every occasion. So please bear with me. I have to give this swill a 3.9. This beer tastes great, and was the perfect quencher for my dry mouth. The aluminum pints really give this beer a kick in the ass! I'm becoming more of a fan of aluminum pints for macro lagers. The glass bottled version felt pretty watery and lacked taste, if I remember correctly (it was about a year since I've had one in a glass bottle). Cans sometimes don't do it for me. But these aluminum bottles are growing on me. Cheers Coors!
