look: 2 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 2

A: Clear, looks very light. No head from an aggressive pour.

S: Very subtle yeast, bread. Some corn.

T: Mostly malts. Sweet and very bread-y.

M: Wet, just a little carbonation.

O: Just your average light malty brew. On that scale, I wish I were drinking a Labatte.

A - White head. Yelllow brew. Clear bubbles.

S - Creamy and delicious. Heavy yeast scent.

T - Creamy and delicious. Round.

M - Good carbonation.

O - One for the ages. This beer will always remind me of certain things in life. It's not the best for the style, but it's still pretty damn refreshing when ice cold...

poured out of a can into a pint glass.

Appearance is very pale yellow with a small soapy head that dissipates rather quickly.

Smells of sweet corn with a slight cooked vegetable smell.

tastes similar to the smell although not quite as sweet as I might expect. There is less corn than high life and a little bready grain comes through. Maybe just a slight hop bitterness.

Overall this is a good beer and for the style and one of my favorites when I want to have more than a few.

look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Poured into a pint glass.

It's yellow and fizzy with a white head that quickly dissolves.

It smells like grain. It's rather malty for a BMC.

It tastes pretty malty not very hoppy. It's got a bit of pungency that is rather nice.

It's not quite like a soda, but it's still really gassy.

Overall this beer's ok. I'd still rather drink a Bud.

poured from a 24oz can into a beer glass. The head was a bright white and foamy, the beer with a pale golden color. The taste of this canned beer has a kind of faint 'solvent' like taste with high carbonation. I dont remember the bottled beer version tasting like this, but I will retry that to confirm. This can beer is not that great to wash down food or drink upon cutting the lawn on a hot day.

My friend bought these for me because he knew I loved "beer". Well, I have never cared for this beer, but I drank it anyway so I didnt hurt his feelings.

The appearance is your avearage like yellow color with a thick head. The smell is of straw and maybe corn. The taste is pretty like how it tasted with corn and some malt. The mouthfeel to me was much better than the other crappy beers and wasnt too terrible. The beer overall isnt horrible, but I would never spend money on it.

Had on tap at the brewery in Golden.

A: slight hazy and straw colored.

S: sweet bready notes. Some malt. No hops

T: very sweet bready taste. Its actually not terrible. I am not sure if I have ever had coors before now. Mostly had budweiser products back when I was going for quantity over quality (college)

M: high carbonation and light body.

Overall: Not as bad as I was expecting. sweet and fairly drinkable.

The first beer I actually ever liked and wanted another. But I haven't had in many, many years. But for $2.something a 32 oz bottle, why not try on a wickedly hot California day.

Pours a very pale yellow with an intense lively head, lots of streamers from the bottom. A good looking beer. The head falls away quickly.

The aroma is straw-like with a little hop character, a little sweetness at first that fades quickly. A slight soapiness comes through as it warms.

The flavor is surprisingly rich for the style, with some actual grain, a little breadiness, and some slight fruit, a little apricot, and some hops on the back end.

The mouthfeel is basically insubstantial, though there is a little prickle of carbonation on the tip of the tongue.

My palate has come a long way since the mid 80s, but Coors had held up surprisingly well.

12oz Bottle

Appearance – Slightly hazy yellow colour with an average size fizzy white coloured head. There is an average amount of carbonation showing and there is some faint lacing. The head lasted for around 5 minutes before it was gone.

Smell - Grains, corn, malts

Taste & Mouth - The beer has an average amount of carbonation. I can taste malts mixed with corn and grains. There is also a bit of a musty taste that i can't quite put my finger on. It finishes with a kind of harsh malty/corn aftertaste.

Overall – I find that the coors and coors light beers both a have a distinctive taste that sets it apart from its competitors. I guess that the macro-drinkers either love it or hate it. Not something I'd buy again, but after having countless coors lights while growing up, it's nice to see what the non-light version tastes like.

A run of the mill brew, fit only for drinking after a few quality brews Unimpressive color smell and taste, it reminds me of drinking seltzer with a hint of yeast. It does have a very light tingly palate making it good fair for big picnics, BBQs or a day at the beech.

look: 2 | smell: 2 | taste: 3 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5

A - Pale yellow. Slightly more opaque than it's "light" sister. Two finger head that quickly dissipates. No lacing.

S - Grainy smell that is typical of adjunct lagers.

T - Taste is probably the best attribute of this beer. Malted barley with a bit of a lime note.

M - Highly carbonated. Fairly light.

O - I try to keep the style in mind when I review a beer, but the Adjunct Lager style doesn't deserve respect. By definition, the style is more concerned with cutting cost and mass production than quality.

That being said, for mass-produced cheap beer, this is about as good as it gets.

Poured a 3" velvety white head. Light clear straw yellow color and very few body bubbles so it appears all the carbonation went to that early head pour. Smells mildly of grain. Taste is like mildly sweetened water. In fact that's what this is, water dressed up to look and smell like any BMC beer. Plus that "2 stage cold activation" bottle label is a joke. Who needs help telling if their bottle is cold, why not just feel it? Oh wait, you're supposed to drink this so ice cold you can't really taste anything (?) Ohhh. Then make a better beer instead of a better label.
