look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Best by 11/12/12.

Pours a clear golden-orange with a foamy beige head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, grass, and hay. Taste is fairly sweet and is of malt, grain, caramel, and some slight grass and hay flavors on the finish. There is a mild bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that I would not ever think was something Coors produced in a blind tasting.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

A: The beer is slightly hazy amber yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high off white head that quickly died down, leaving a thin layer of bubbles on the surface, a collar around the edge and some lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Light aromas of toasted malts are present in the nose along with notes of grassy hops.
T: The initial taste has flavors of toasted malts and a bit of sweetness; this is followed by notes of grassy hops and hints of mineral water plus a slight amount of bitterness.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is a lot fuller bodied compared to other beers in the style and doesn't have any adjunct-like flavors.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a clear golden color with a short lived white head. Nose is fairly typical macro lager aroma of sweet grain/cereal, light esters, and minimal hops. A slight corn note is present. The flavor is sweet grain, minimal biscuit qualities, and no hops to speak of. A touch watery, some yeast and mild fruit esters. That's pretty much it. Nothing wrong with it, just nothing all that great about it.

3.58/5  rDev +6.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Pours out a lightly hazed, honey-hued body with nearly two fingers worth of rich foam that fades but never disappears.

Smell: Honey accents ahead of the pale maltiness trailed by notes of leafy green, citrusy, spicy hops.

Taste: Honey-brushed maltiness with a thin hint of lightly toasted grain. Moderately sweet throughout. Lemony, leafy, herbal hops with ample bitterness to balance it out, or so I thought, as the sweetness makes a last-minute rebound before the finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation.

Overall: It'll do in a pinch!

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Served in a Batch 19 tulip pint glass at Wool Street.

Never thought I'd actually see this brew out by me, but then Serendipity came along and randomly dropped it in my lap at a local watering hole. It pours a clear russet-ish straw (this may have just been the weird light in the bar...) topped by a finger of white foam. The nose comprises light wheat, light corn (straight from the cob, baby), and mineral water. The taste brings things up a bit, with notes of wheat, caramelized pilsner malts (damn homebrewing...), flowers, light grass, and a twinge of grapefruit peel in the back. The body is a hefty-leaning light, with a light moderate carbonation and a crisp finish. Overall, I think this is the best Coors product I've had in a long time. I really hope it stays on in the area, so that I can have a nice alternative to the usual BMC nonsense where craft is not abundant. Not all that bad, I gotta tell ya.

BBD: AUG 19 2013
Found a single of this, have had before on tap at the MillerCoors HQ bar of all places.
Bright gold with a few stray trails of tiny rising bubbles. Thin layer of white foam on the surface, sparse bit of drippy lace on the opposite side of the glass. Thin broken veil of skim after first couple sips.

Bready buttered biscuit aroma, a little bit of yeast, mild and pleasant.

Lightly sweet malts, vaguely grassy noble hops, with a bitter carbonic bite in the end. Some astringency, gassy and light bodied. It's ok, fairly drinkable but ultimately nothing special. Wouldn't refuse at a party, but wouldn't buy it with so many better craft lagers in the market.

A - Clear, copper color with an off-white, one-finger head of foam. It left little to no lacing.

S - It smelled of caramel and grains.

T - Caramel and toffee with some spiciness.

M - Crisp, sharp and smooth. A light to medium bodied lager.

O - This is nice. Better than regular Coors.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a deep gold color, with a short white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains light caramelized malts, lager yeast, adjuncts and a faint touch of hops.

T: The taste starts out with some malt & adjunct sweetness. Then a very mild hops presence comes in. The malt character is a bit heavier than most beers in the style and brings some balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet.

M: A little crisp and a little smooth, light-to-medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: A bit flavorful, goes down ok, not too filling, mild kick, decent representation of style, considering the style it’s not too bad but there are other similar beers that I would choose first.

Sample bottle from the brewery, they are launching draft only for now ... not sure if they are ever going to bottle / can it.

Bubbly sea foam head, perfectly clear golden color. Fresh graininess leans towards a more rustic dried grass aroma with a kiss of hops in the back. Refreshing crisp bite enhances the graininess, a little rough around the edges. Hop bitterness is sharp and cuts through most of the malt. On the dry side and relatively clean.

Good drinking, reminds me of some of the retro-beers that are all the rage right now. That is a big hint to the MillerCoors marketing department ... tall boy cans, crack into the hipster crowd and this beer might actually make it.

Visually comes off glowing amber golden hued with flowing off white rocky textured head, thick bubbles forming as it settles down. Thick bands of lace settle along the sides of my glass, quite a nice looking brew from the folks at Coors. Aroma has a lingering citric, grassy hop nose amongst a clean mix of grain perceived sweetness, let the hops shine in this supposed recipe pre-prohibition 1919 lager. Definitely a nice smelling mix of barley, corn husks, cereal grains with hop appreciation showing some love from the bottles label it says strisselspalt and hersbrucker German hops. The alcohol weighs in pretty heavy in the flavor at first but settles into a mix of semi sweet bready grains and bitter green hoppy citrus rind and grassy accents. Not the best American brewed lager lingering flavors that don't work are bitterness from an almost plastic or burnt bread crust carbon flavor that I'm just not appreciating. Overall mouthfeel has ample carbonation but is a bit harsh with those lingering qualities that stick with you between sips, not a beer I'm looking to consume on a regular basis.

I had this at the Texas Roadhouse in York, served chilled in a pint.

The color is an apricot shade with light haze and thin white cap, retention is good. The smell is very gentle with mild malt sweetness and subtle floral hop aspects with a light spice ester. The feel is good with mild sweetness crisp medium bodied moderate carbonation and semi-dry finish.

I like the flavor while it has a slight pils sweetness it also has an herbal hop flavor which adds to the malt profile with a dry finish it is a pretty drinkable lager

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.

an upgrade from other coors products this one is presented beautifully in unique glass. looks and smells a little darker than their usual stuff. this beer has a much more prominent malt profile than i was expecing, and it just has a whole lot more flavor than anything else ive tried from coors. its not a great beer, but it is drinkable. im always a fan of putting a little more oomph into a brew, and the same applies at the macro level. step in the right direction for coors.
