At first glance the box and bottles are very appealing. The "Pre-Prohibition" definitely sold me.

The beer itself is Good, not great, but definitely good. Taste is solid with a small but noticeable aftertaste that stays in the mouth for a minute. When poured into a glass the color is a nice golden amber, leaving a small brim that continues to stay as you drink.

Overall It's a good beer, I would recommend it to others who have not tried it and possibly will get it again! Thumbs up!

Poured from the bottle into an old Budweiser shorty pilsner glass.

A pale amber body, with hints of chestnut brown throughout. Lots of stuck cola carbonation on the glass, and lots of fast rising carbonation also. Head forms with an incredibly milk formation, but is classic white and settles to a thin puck.

Hard to describe this nose. Light toasty caramel and popcorn like sweet. It smells like caramel popcorn which is kind of fun I must admit.

Palate comes with a very light body. Nearly crisp finish with a hint of quick sticky caramel. Sweetness follows on the tongue with a little bit of crackery malt sensations. Quite a good thirst quencher.

Overall this is a real interesting take on the style, quite memorable.

Well I'll be....I'd heard rumors that if you went to the tap room at the Coors plant in Golden, CO, they actually had some really good small batch beers...available only there. I've always considered regular Coors beer watery and nearly taste-free--I'll take a PBR over all the macro-beers. This beer though is quite lovely, with a sweet malty nose and noticeable hops in the taste--like a good basic German or maybe more Czech, lager. Sweet, slightly corn, but extremely well balanced against the hops. I'm guessing this is about 25 IBUs or so, which is right in the running for Czech or German lagers. Clean palat-cleansing finish--a very satisfying session beer. If only NORMAL Coors were so good!

Proves too that pre-prohibition American lagers really were/are respectable, decent beers, which shouldn't be despised by the IPA-or-nothing crowds....

This really is a great beer, all the more for the fact that a macro-brewery made it...proving those guys really are capable of making delicious beers--if American consumers actually demanded them...

I was quite surprised actually, have always enjoyed Coors over most American brews so perhaps it appealed to my taste buds easily.

The smell of the hops was very good and its overall taste was better than adverage. Will I purchase it again, only if my choices are poor.

I did like the shape of the bottle with the double ring around the neck, but it does nothing to enhance the quality of the beer.

Yes, I would recommend it, especially if you have not tried it already.

a nice beer. Meets my standard "tastes like beer". I am not a fan of the strongly hopped flavors that are most prevalent today in "beer". This one tastes like a good beer, but could have a touch more strength in flavor.
It is good.
