A-Deep, regal golden color....nice white head that rims glass.
S-Light bready malt characteristics...some caramel as well.
T-I really like the flavor of this....nice maltiness....bready with some caramel notes...also some dark fruit (plums) notes at times as it finishes with a light twang of hoppiness which reminds more of a light cherry like tartness than bitterness...
M-Medium bodied to the light side of medium bodied....finishes slightly dry...firm carbonation..
O-I seemed to like the first few bottles of this more than now when I am sitting down to review. Didn't pickup the tart finish as much previously. Regardless this is a nice beer for an adjunct lager. I've read some criticism about the actually effort to reduplicate this beer and how they fell short and what they could have done better. I agree with those thoughts but this drinks ok anyhow. Wouldn't buy it for the price again but if priced like a regular BMC I'd pick it up from time to time..

Sampled tonight on 3/19/14 though I had this once before back in 2012. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a pilsner glass.
Pours a medium amber with not much a 2-finger white head that settles down to a thin layer on top. Lots of lacing was seen with each sip. The aroma is of different sweet hops and malts. Taste of like a corn sweetness followed up by gentle hops. Overall very enjoyable. If this is what some beer tasted like before Prohibition in 1919, then fire up the ol' DeLorean and lets take a trip 'Back to the Future" to taste some more early-type brews. Great job Coors!
