12 oz. poured on-tap into a beer mug at Olde Town Pub. From notes.

A: Pours a clear copper color. Not much of a head here aside from a thin off-white film (good on them for not pouring this with a lot of head, I guess).

S: Light caramel, grains, barley, and a touch of corn. Nothing impressive, but perfectly acceptable for what this beer is trying to accomplish.

T: Slightly sweet with a grainy touch. Finishes crisply, too. It's okay, far superior to regular Coors.

M: Fairly light and crisp feeling, though it could be a hair less syrupy. It doesn't have the harsh carbonation of some macro lagers.

O: Next to a lot of craft lagers, it's competent yet wholly unimpressive; but next to other BMC macro lagers, it's a damn revelation. Don't seek it out, but give it a try if you manage to randomly catch it at your local watering hole.

Odd shaped twist off bottle poured into a pint glass.

Pours out a deep golden to copper color with 2 fingers worth of white head off the pour that fades to a retentive ring. Pretty good lacing. Good clarity, but not really that crystal clear body you usually find in an adjunct lager. Maybe the best adjunct lager I've ever seen as far as looks go.

Clean, mineral water lager yeast, and hints of sweet grain. Maybe a slight hint of toasted grain.

Clean and a fairly good flavor for an adjunct lager. Sweet, lightly toasted grains, mineral lager yeast, and just enough of a faint hop to call this balanced.

Light bodied, but not at all watery like every other adjunct lager I've had. Same goes for the carbonation.

Very drinkable, quenches the thirst on a hot day. Definatly one of the better adjunct lagers I've had, but that's still not saying much. Would I buy it again, NO.

Oh my, its sure has been a ling time since my last review. Been holding off due to the site changes. I'm an old school soul that takes dramatic change hard. The pace if technology, possibilities and constant changes with the many and complex social aspects creates a oroblem for me. I like to keep it simple, direct and personal. Sometimes you have to roll with it and adapt. Its only because i love the very foundation of what this site is based on do i bother to come back. Do i naturally like how the site looks, feels, operates now compared to say 2010...no. but who cares, ? I love beer, reviews and the work ut takes to create and maintain such a popular style site. Ih damn, its high time i review this beer currently getting warm because i'm typing in a tiny ass android key pad!

First off, i love the concept of historical recipes and beers brewed as such. I love historu and im an old soul in a young body. For sure.

The look is pretty nice. Amber, not yelliw or clear color. I always feel like a major comoany like millercoors might skimp out on certain aspects of a brew. No evidence of that here.

Aroma is a rather funky, musky, burnt sugar, earthy and sour delight. I really like how these aromas blend. The hop smell is very interesting

Flavor is actually pretty complex, with a unique,funk to the hop flavor. Sour and wheat_ earthy effect. Together, worth sipping and ponderig. The malt, thank god is not too sweet ir lingering. Balance can make or break a brew for me, this one imoresses.

Feel is good, no malty left overs, stays crisp but maintains a mouth complexity.

I think many will not be open to this beer simply because its from one of big boys. Judge it for what it is. Word.

Poured from an "old-timey" looking bottle into a standard pint glass.
Clear antique gold in color, with a short, airy head of white foam.
Aroma-Faint pale malt
Taste-Right off-the-bat off-putting metallic note, pale malt. A couple of German specialty hops are listed on the bottle, but my taste buds are having a hard time finding their hiding place. Maybe Batch 20 will be better. Here's hoping.

Saw this on tap at Penguin Pizza on Sat. I have not really seen it around very much here, and even though I knew it was a Coors product, I thought I'd give it a try. Served in a standard pint glass. Muted yellow color to the body. Decent amount of carbonation, with a small head at first. Smell was nothing special, sot of like all other macros. Flavor was a bit better than I was expecting. Pretty mellow taste, but it has some nice notes of malt. Plus the mouthfeel was somewhat thicker than other examples from the BMC catalog. Not a bad beer; I'd order one again if the choices were limited. Worth a shot to try once.

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

The deep golden color, and one finger thick head, made for an attractive looking pour. The smell was pretty nondescript malts, and just a shade of hops. The taste was a simple mix of sweet corn cereal, light hops, and some toffee. Very clean in mouth, like a lager should be, with somewhat vegetal finish. This was head and shoulders above anything else from Coors, that I have ever had, but it was nothing I would go out and search for.

Coppery to light amber in color there was a great deal of carbonation. This carbonation built a quickly fleeting head and once it settled, gave a flat appearance.

The scent was weakly malted, slightly toasted and a bit stale.

The taste was a bit the same with some malty, roasted, nutty and grainy qualities. Somewhat bland but not much more than average this is not a ringing endorsement for bootleggers beer.

12 oz. bottle tried 31 Oct 2011. Courtesy of (who else?) R&S. Thank you both. Served in the 0.4 L Radeberger mug.

Large bubbly off white head. Moderate carbonation. Clear deep gold in color. Aroma is grainy, citrus, mineral. Flavor starts quite similar to the aroma. Light sweet graininess through the middle. Touch of mineral. Medium body, light ethanol. Sweet lingering finish and aftertaste.

Quite easy to drink. Better than I thought it would be.
