A: Extremely pale yellow reminiscent of squeezed lemons. Head rapidly fades. Bubbles race up to the top due to heavy carbonation.
S: On the sharper side with a strong wheat grain presence and a musty cellar scent behind it
T: Tangy and round. It is a relatively sweet beer and tastes like the average blue collar lager: lots of grain and not much else. Some floral and fruit notes come to mind, however they are blisteringly overpowered by a pure wheat taste.
M: Heavily carbonated and bubbly, but not excessively so. Not oily or stick. Not thin or runny. Admirable consistency and goes down well.
Let's get one thing straight: it's cool to hate Coors. With Miller-Coors being one of the three most visible front-runners in the macro lineup, it's easy to hate the guys at the front of the pack. I grew up in Pennsylvania where Yuengling is cheap and plentiful. That said, Coors (Original, Banquet, whatever you choose to call it) is a great beer for when you just want a beer. Like PBR, it has this strange peanut-butter-and-jelly aura to it. Is it the most complex and desirable thing you've ever poured? Hell no. Is it simple, enjoyable, and hit the spot? You bet.
Along with that, Coors has a great American history from beginning as the dream of young Prussian immigrant Adolph Coors to establishing the American Heritage Foundation by Joseph Coors.
