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.

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!
