3.73/5  rDev +11.3%

Sampled on June 29, 2012 at The Tap Sports Bar and Grill in Belmont, New Hampshire. The pour is golden to pale yellow with a small white fizzy head that settles down. The aroma highlights include pale malts, a slight hop note that is both clean and crisp, but little in the way of adjuncts. The body is light to medium. The taste was of grain malts with moderate bitterness at the end. Compared to other adjuncts this was an improvement. I had to drive a ways to find it in my area. It tasted better than other standard Coors products but was nothing extraordinary.

3.55/5  rDev +6%

12oz. bottle served in a standard pint. March 2013 indicated on the bottle.Pours a semi-translucent orange-gold with a fizzy, half inch, white head that quickly dissipates into a soapy skim; no lacing. Nose expresses corn adjuncts, a hint of sweetness and a light, skunky/sour mash quality. Taste consistent with nose - malt profile is almost non-existent. There's a slight grassiness to this, as well as some earthy hoppiness, eventually yielding to the skunky/sour mash character towards the back. Mouthfeel is light in body, with an assertive carbonation and a semi-crisp finish. Overall, a pretty solid American Adjunct Lager. I had this on-tap a few months back and thought it was quite tasty (didn't realize it was a Coors product). That said, given the bottle dating, I feel like this beer went a little downhill. As such, I may need to update this review with a fresher bottle.

3.95/5  rDev +17.9%

Fairly drinkable beer. Poured at a good temperature with a thick, cream-colored, medium size head that settles after a bit and some lace. Color is a clear medium amber with a few slow bubble trails. Aroma is a tad perfumey, malt, grass. Flavor's like nose, tang and mild sweetness up front, bitter in back. Not too complex, but drinkable. Body/carbonation decent. Finish is like flavor, on the short side.

3.21/5  rDev -4.2%

On tap at Buffalo Wild Wings. It pours a deep amber color with really, really nice clarity. A surprisingly long-lasting cap rests on top; bone-white in color and pretty frothy in appearance, it leaves a nice, solid sheet of lace around the top of the beer. All in all, a very nice beer to look at, especially when compared to something like a regular Coors beer.

My least favorite thing about the aroma is the lack of power all around. It's heavily subdued and muzzled, with only a slight twinge of grains, malt sweetness, and some faintly metallic, dry and musty Noble hops. Perhaps a hint of wheat in the finish... is this beer made with wheat? I didn't think it was, but I could be wrong. Nothing offensive here, except for the overall impotence.

The first sip reveals a decent amount of citrus spritz and lemon zest which is actually a welcomed addition. A backbone of grains is immediately appreciated; lightly sweet with a subtle hop bitterness that washes over everything. The hops are somewhat ashy and musty and even a touch "stale", so I'm sticking with my original guess of some type of Noble hop.

Again, I'm picking up a little bit of wheat from mid-palate into the finish - it's actually pretty soft and relaxing and works perfectly with the citrus. The beer is light bodied, but still noticeably heavier than the slew of other macro lagers that you'll typically find. A nice, crisp, dry finish from the lager yeast closes things out.

I'm impressed in the way that I didn't hate this like I was expecting to. It's not something I'd ever go out of my way to order again, but if given the choice between this and your typical Bud, Miller, Coors, etc. products, I'd take this in a heartbeat. Quaffable to the max, though I wish the nose were a bit more lively to say the least.

Pours a crystal clear golden amber, moderate cap of frothy white foam. Scent leads with fresh dried cereal grains and sweet malted barley, some grassy hoppyness and a touch of citrus rind, finishes with a bit of fresh corn on the nose. Taste follows scent - both fresh and malted grains, moderate hop presence and touch of vegital taste. Medium bodied, surprisingly creamy for the style. Overall, was pleased with the scent and flavor profiles and the body of this beer.

On tap at Miller Park, since Miller and Coors are the same thing now. Figure since I got no plans to head to CO, and since this has got a real limited distribution, I better give it a go.

Described as a pre-prohibition lager, which I used to think meant "all malt" but now realize means "somewhat hoppy adjunct." And that's exactly what it was: thin pour, full body, dry and lightly bitter American-style lager. Strong cereal grains, almost like eating a bowl of barley, and then some rounded, bitter, east coast hops.

3.85/5  rDev +14.9%

Served on tap in a pint glass

Appearance – Pours a golden amber colored brew with a one finger white head. The head fades rather fast to leave a nice level of lacing.

Smell- The aroma is heaviest of a bready and caramel smell. Mixed with these aromas is a light hop smell of a citrus and earthy nature

Taste – The taste begins with flavors of bread and some caramel sweetness. As the flavor advances a light roasted malt flavor comes to the tongue along with some hop flavors of an earthy nature come to the tongue. As the flavor advances more to the end, it crisps up more as the caramel flavors diminish some and more bready flavors comes to the tongue. With these transitions more hop flavors of a light citrus nature come to the tongue as well and leave a lightly hopped crisp flavor on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the lighter side in terms of thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is very average. It’s pretty decent for the style as it is smooth and matched the crispness and light hop flavors of the brew fairly well.

Overall – A nice easy drinking and good session brew. It has enough hop flavor to make it somewhat exciting, but it still maintains an easy and relatively clean lager taste.

One of the more impressive AALs and even more impressive it comes from Coors. Pours a clear, pale amber color with just over one finger of head that had good retention. Surprisingly heavy amount of lacing is left down the glass. Aroma of sweet malt and hay/grass- like hop qualities. Nice clean flavor that is just a little too sweet for me. The hops are a little more assertive than todays AALs, but it is not enough to balance the sweetness. The hops give some grassy flavor. Good body and carbonation. Enjoyable lighter beer texture with lively carbonation. Nice that Coors is branching out a bit and offering an interesting lager. Maybe not enough to warrant another purchase from me, but should appeal to other pale lager drinkers.

12 oz from a six pack from local Mom and Pop convenience store, S.Salem $6.99. Slightly darker gold than usual for a pale lager..nice really,large frothy white head. Realtivly clean aroma or weak caramel,nuts, and weak resin hops. Taste is balanced, caramel,grassy hop and bread..not too bad really maybe a bit sweet. Hae to say i liked the mouthfeel of this ..it made me take big gulps and i am not thirsty..i can only imagine how fast this would go next week as i camp in the Oregon Dunes. A good lager

Cool bottle. Interesting brew. Pours an amber lager with a bit of white bubbles here and there. Nose is caramel, sugar substitutes, some banana, a little grain - nice nose. Flavor is nice and smooth lager - reminds me of a munich helles and is slightly sweet and woody. Easy drinking. Medium bodied with lower carb and a nice semi slick finish. A surprise from a giant - a really drinkable beer. I would order this occasionally.
