When I was going through Golden CO, we stopped at the Coors Brewery. Being a beer geek, I of course hold my nose at the mention of Coors. Having seen a lot of small breweries, I was quite interested in seeing a huge one. I managed to sample/choke down all four Coors beers while there. This one was the only one that was any good, and the only one with any character.

I had always liked this beer. I think I'll start keeping this around the house for macro drinker visitors and occaisonally for my own enjoyment. (516 characters)

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. (203 characters)

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. (518 characters)

it is only 10.99 for a thirty case to start. we then move on to a golden colored brew that is sharply carbonated. the carbonation is a bit much, but the beer is a bit more mild in flavor. it is not great, but they go down pretty easy, and for the price, it is pretty hard to beat (279 characters)

This beer starts off promising, with a nice medium amber color, and impressive head, but then quickly subsides into a typical macrobrew. Quick malt rush quickly subsides into a cooked corn flavor. Finishes weak. (213 characters)

Very pale with a slight gold tint. Actually not bad head retention. Not much nose... Lots of added sugar and slight malt flavor, but of course no detectable hops what-so-ever. (178 characters)

look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Pale gold color, modest head, little lace or carbonation. Fresh aroma of grain and faint hops. Taste is refreshing, mild grain and hops, not enough malt for my taste, smooth finish; very clean on the palate. Not bad but not particularly notable either. (256 characters)

3.3/5  rDev +15.8%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

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. (1,214 characters)

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) (171 characters)
