First had: on tap at Pinocchio's, Media, PA

Strangely not too bad for a Coors product.

Poured a clear golden color with a thin fizzy head; no real retention or lacing to speak of. Sweetness of pale malts in the nose, light leafy hops, spent grains. Toasted grains in the taste with an unexpected honey sweetness, backed by light leafy hops as detected in the aroma. Light body, easily drinkable, but overall lacking in flavor and complexity, as any basic adjunct lager would be. Still not bad, all things considered.

Serving type: on-tap

5.5% ABV confirmed. Best by May 27 2013. Acquired at Wally's Wine in Westwood earlier tonight. Reviewed live. Expectations are low given the brewery, but I've heard this isn't half-bad actually. 12 fl oz brown glass bottle with an awesome bubbled-out grip on the neck and a branded pressure cap served into an Oskar Blues pilsner glass in me gaff in low altitude Los Feliz, Los Angeles, California.

I love the bottle and like the label.

Served straight from the fridge. Side-poured with standard vigor as no carbonation issues are anticipated.

Not paired with food.

A: Pours a one finger beige colour head, with little cream, of bad thickness and bad (~1 minute) retention. Body colour is a clear translucent pale yellow-copper. No yeast particles are visible. No bubble show. Looks a lot better than many other Coors products. No overt flaws. Standard fare.

Sm: Caramalt, light toasted malt, and generic floral hopping. Grainy, with some bland grassy notes as well. Pleasant and understated. A light to average strength aroma. No yeast character or alcohol is detectable.

T: Crystal malt. Caramalt. Clean barley. None of the straw or watery character typical of the style. I don't even get any corn. Floral hop character is timid but welcome. A nice graininess forms the bulk of the body. Some light grassy character, but it's bland. Overall, it tastes like a bad amber - which isn't half-bad for an American adjunct lager. A bit too sweet. It does have flavour. I wouldn't say I like it, but it's surprisingly tolerable and pleasant. Most notably, I can't find (and by find, I mean identify precisely) the adjunct in this adjunct lager; that's quite an achievement.

Mf: Smooth, wet, and chewy. Smoothness is artificial and off-putting. Carbonation is near perfect, to its credit. It has more body than I expected from a beer of its style, but it still comes off thin and weak.

Dr: Quite drinkable. Fit for beer pong; far more-so than other beers in the style. It's definitely one of the better adjunct lagers I've had, but it lacks the buttery feel of other "good" adjunct lagers. A lot of reviewers will attack this beer merely because of the brewery, but I'm confident if you hosted a blind taste test of crappy budget brews, this would take the top spot. And I think that says a lot. Hides its average ABV well. I'd get this again if I were at a macro-only bar. This is up there with Miller High Life as a go-to for power hours. Call it a guilty pleasure.

High D+
