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.

Not sure where this can came from, but here it is...
It doesn't look bad. It's nothing spectacular, but the clear and bright dark gold brew holds up a decent layer of foam that manages some spotting.
The smell is clean, but it's got little but corn, something like dry grass, and tangy sweetness.
For a beer with a less than impressive aroma, I'm surprised that there's some substance in the taste. For the style, the roasted malts, grains, husk and mildly soapy flavors are better than most. Add to that the fact that hops can actually be tasted and add a light bitterness that's easily detectable, and you might have the best tasting beer of a crappy genre out there.
Dry and husky on the tongue, it's light in body but nearly medium. It has a bit of graininess to it but nothing too harsh. It's quite crisp and even somewhat smooth.

Appearance: pours a 1" fluffy white head which recedes moderately. There is a moderate amount of lacing. Beer is a deep golden color with noticeable streaming carbonation.
Aroma: roasted barley, corn husks, clean water and a bit of hop aroma.
Mouthfeel: light and crisp. This brew goes down easily and finish is quite dry.
Flavor: pleasant taste of toasted bread crust, a bit of buttery toffee, some corn sweetness. There is a mild hop bitterness in the finish and aftertaste.
