Coors Extra Gold is a basic lager with a little more flavor and character than the average mainstream brew. This beer is a little darker than other beers of its genre but it has perfect clarity, little foam, and the scent of corn, cereal grains, and yeast- qualities that are typical of a big business brew.
The taste of Coors Extra Gold, however, is a little bit better than its close relatives. The taste of sweet grains is evident, along with yeast, and very little hop. Ordinarily, qualities like these would result in a lower rating, but Coors Extra Gold is fractionally fuller bodied, offering a heartier, maltier taste than its close companions, Coors Original and Coors Light.
One annoyance with Coors Extra Gold is that it is only sold in 30- packs. You cannot buy smaller quantities. But on the bright side, the price is very low. It is common to find a 30- pack selling for only about $12, which is the equivalent of buying a six pack for only $2.40. It might be offered for sale in some markets in smaller packages but I have only seen it offered in the large thirty pack size.
Normally, I would preach against a product like Coors Extra Gold, due to its macro- brewed character and its adjunct qualities. But something about this beer makes me enjoy it more than I should. I think its the added body (when compared to Coors best selling products), the darker color, and the slightly maltier taste. This, added with the fact that it is much better than other beer in its price range, makes Coors Extra Gold a good choice of brew for certain occasions.

Originally gave a quick review back in August, 2013. I had to do a write up on this after I cracked open some left over cans from a 30 pack purchased in Poncha Springs CO. I kept the cans cold every since. Anyway, cracked open a cold can and couldn't believe this beer. It was awesome in terms of head and appearance. Poured into a regular pint glass. The taste was like an amped up original coors. Much better than Bud and Miller products. This beer will go down easy and is easy on the pocket book. It surprised the hell out of me. Taste like a good lager should. Good camp beer at that. Nothing spectacular but worth the money and probably the best adjunct available. Coors did well with this one. Good for those warm days and nights or any occasion. I remember back in the 90's when the branding and label had coors on it. Now it's just Extra Gold. I don't think they changed the recipe much. Cheers!

Can't beat the price for a terrific poundable beer, you'll need to like a sweet taste tho, hell Mel Gibson used to drink it...overall summary for a meager review: yet another cheap beer that beats the hell out of Budwieser...seems to be only available in 30pack...don't see that as a prob though
