A: Gold with incredible clarity and minimal carbonation. Fizzy white head sticks around for a minute or two. After that, we have gold colored water with a few bubbles in it. Left no lace.

S: Mild. A little bit of apple and a little bit of hay. Certainly inoffensive, if nothing else.

T: Clean, and crisp with a bit more punch than regular Coors. Malt flavor consists of a mix of straw and rice. Bitterness balances with a tart apple flavor. Finishes with very little aftertaste.

M: Light body actually has some substance to it. Carbonation level seems right.

D: Certainly more interesting than regular Coors. Sort of a Coors on steroids. An OK beer, but not worth a revisit.

Clear light golden hue topped by a quickly settling head. Light graininess and cooked corn in aroma, but is otherwise clean and unappealing. The overall bland flavor is dominated by corn sweetness... hop bitterness is virtually nonexistant, while both hop and malt flavors are absent. Very watery mouthfeel. Finishes abruptly, not unlike seltzer water... I feel like I haven't even had a beer. Other than a pronounced corn flavor, there's absolutely nothing noteable about this brew, but I guess that's the point.

pours out of the can a goldish/copper/bronze colour with a thin fine head, disappearing quickly but supported somewhat by active carbonation. slight malt aroma, some adjunct notes as well. taste is a light mix of genuine barley malt and grainy flavours...which makes the gesture of hiding any real adjunct tastes. a bit of hopping adds some bitterness in the back end. not bad. the body is of the usual macro lagerish sort with a slight hint of something more. mouthfeel is crisp and clean with a residual sweetness. drinkability is very good for a mass produced american lager.

more overall malt flavour than the usual macros, and WAY better than regular coors. a nice switch up in the rotation of bud, high life, PBR, etc. for my macro swilling.

I tried this stuff as i had never heard of it, and it was 11.99 for a 30 pack. I was quite suprised, as this stuff was very gold in color and had (GASP) real flavor! It reminded me of coors original, and for the most part was, with the exception of a smoother element and not much of a head. Overall, it's not a bad beer by any standards. If you are a coors fan, give it a try.

Poors frothy, but calms down to a thin soapy head. Few bubbles are visible. Clear yellow; essentially looks the same coming out of the can as it will coming out of you.

The smell isn't terribly appealing but is better than most mass-produced lagers. Just your basic barley smell.

Tastes okay for what it is. Not really any sign of hops. Relatively clean and mild aftertaste.

Tingly and thin. The mouthfeel is the best part of this beer to me. It feels about the same as a club soda but with less tingle.

Moderately good drinkability for no other reason than the price: $10 for a 30 pack where I come from. Not a beer to enjoy or sip, but if you can get it really cold and frosty then its a good beer for hot dogs in the summer or purposely trying to get a cheap buzz. Not much use for it beyond that.

12oz. can that I got for free. That's a good a thing because I would never pay for the stuff. The only good about this was the appearance, which was a golden color with a 1 inch of white foam. It went down hill from here. The smell was horrific! It smelled like a cross between apple juice and urine. The taste and mouthfeel were the same, a heavily waterd down malty beer. Give me a bottle of water over this any day. If you want a cheap beer with no taste then get this beer.
