Not being a Coors hater I was pleased to give this beer a try and it did not disappoint me. It does appear to be darker gold than the original formula and that gives the sense of more body even if the body has much the same lighter texture and feel. Decent enough head that does reced quickly and only light lace effect. Sense of malt and some adjuncts in both taste and aroma. Drinkable beer even if it does come from one of the major macro brewers.

Not a bad "looking" beer", then it goes down hill from there. It really is gold in color with a foamy white head and not much lace. Smells of damp corncob, sweet malt and mild hops. The modest malt body has tastes of hay and some pleasant herbal grainy qualities. The hops are barely discernable, but what there is, is hardly describable. I guess a light metallic taste is not too far off. It is better than I expected.
ps - This was a joke father's day gift from my college senior son.

Poured into a shaker pint glass.

The beer is extra gold, literally. It has a nice light copper color to it with slowly rising bubbles. A fizzy white head dissipates quickly to a breath of bubbles. No lacing.

The beer smells slightly metallic with a sweet malt presence and some rich bready grains.

The beer starts off with a touch of the typical metallic adjunct lager notes. The body is composed of toasted grains, sweet malts, and barley. The finish is a touch bitter from the hops that adds balance.

The mouthfeel is light and carbonated.

Overall, this is my #1 camping beer when I go to Colorado. I think it's a great tasting AAL for the price point.

12oz can picked up as partof a 30pack at Hannaford's in Derry. Pours a light amber crystal-clear body with a good inch of off-white short-lived head. Aroma is dominated by biscuit and cracker, tinged with some hints of adjunct, hay/cut grass, and a small bit of DMS (cooked corn). Flavor is fairly bready with slight hay-like flavor in the background, and just the slightest hint of cooked corn in the background. Light-bodied with moderate to high effervescent carbonation. Extremely drinkable, even for the style, since it has such a pleasant flavor and a clean finish. Tastes very good, an easy drinker, better than your average American adjunct lager, and probably the best thing going for the price (50 cents/12oz can).

An average macro from start to finish and well deserving of a 3.0 score. Certainly drinkable when watching the game or any other social type function but lacks character.
Medium/light body of a bright golden hue and light carbonation.
Very limited head/lace/ring/&cling.
Slight grain in the nose.
Sweet complete with some evidence of the hops but limited.
