2.9/5  rDev +17.4%

A-Typical macro yet a hair darker than the rest.

S-Adjunct lager scent. Corny and what not.

T-Better than expected. Still fairly gross but not unbearable.

M-Really slippery. Is that bad?

D-A bit heavier than its Macro relatives. All in all it has more taste than many others of its kin. Coors Light's big goofy brother.

Presentation: 12 oz gold and black trimmed can, blurb about how much is effort is put into making this beer on the can. Date on bottom does not tell if it is a packaging date or drink before date.

Appearance: Pale golden hue with a bright clarity, the white lace is wispy and lacks a little in retention. By the end of the glass the head was virtually gone.

Smell: Extremely clean to the nose, touch of fresh sweet husky grain and not much more than that.

Taste: Very crisp upfront, Light to moderate body. Crispness adds to the refreshing quality of this brew which in turn makes it that much more drinkable. Malt flavour is there even though it is on the thin side, lots of grain and mild husk flavours floating around. Nice snappy and straight to the point hop bitterness, clean and bitter without any harshness. The hops double up with the grainy character and clean the palate for more. Nice clean and balanced finish, not too dry but no cloying sweetness either.

Notes: Not too shabby for an American Lager, more flavour and character than most of the other big name lagers. Other than the malt being a bit thin this beer is a better pick in comparison to the bland lagers or skunky of the world.

Pours golden yellow. Little head. Taste is maltier and more smooth than regular Coors. Hoppiness is apparent as are accents of grains, husks? This is nice and malty. This is better than I expected, and would call this a premium Coors product. Wish it was cheaper and more available where I live.

Pissy yellow beer in a can...light yellow clear, white head, corn or perhaps rice in the nose. Adjuncts in the early flavor profile, sweet in the middle, blah in the finish, no hop notes to be found. Wasnt expecting much here and thats what I got...Lower tier lawn mower beer...or would work in a marinade or pot of brats, besides those purposes stay away...

Coors Extra Gold is nothing to get excited about. This lager pours a cyrstal clear light gold color. Perhaps the "extra gold" refers to the color, as there is sadly nothing golden about this brew. The smell is a generic macro through out, with nothing but adjunct coming through-corn? No hint of malt or hops. The tatse is bland, no flavor at all. The mouthfeel is wet. Why buy this american macro lager, when there are better ones out there such as Miller High Life?

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.

Pours a crystal-clear golden body topped by a creamy bright-white head that displays decent retention and leaves some nice lace. The color is actually somewhat darker than the standard Coor's, although I'm not sure why. I was under the impression that the Extra Gold was simply the standard banquet beer with additional aging time; although based on the color there seems to have been some additional Maillard reactions taking place in the kettle as well. But the label also mentions the "slow aging of the roasted malts" (?) and the "three extra brewing steps to craft every batch" - whatever that means! The nose delivers the sulphur constituents and gentle fruit of the Coor's yeast in combination with a mildly grainy malt. The body is light, and combines with a fine and somewhat moderate carbonation leaving it lightly crisp in the mouth. The flavor displays a well-balanced, grainy malt threaded with mild, background hop flavor. It finishes drying with some residual malt, a touch of light herbal hop flavor, and a very mild bitterness. It's got a little bit of character to it which is nice! Refreshing.

Another favorite "cheap" or "lawnmower" beer of mine. Great iced down in the cooler on those hot, hot Summer days. Gotta love the 30 pak for $10 on sale where I live (NJ)

Even pouring it out of the can did not produce much of a head. Crisp taste though. Could be a good "wedding" type beer if trapped at such a poor function. Although I probably would opt for water instead.

Poured into my nonic pint glass.

Looks gold! Fizzy. Aggressively carbonated. Decent white head. Slims down, but good lacing.

Smells of sweet corn (canned). A bit of hops in the nose, balancing with the sweetness.

A big bite up front in the taste. A grainy dryness in the finish. Husky flavor. A good level of bittering hops. A refreshing, fairly clean aftertaste. And a rim even hangs around til the end.

I paid around $7.50 for a 12-pk. Not too bad for the price, but also not too bad overall.
