look: 3 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75

Appearance: golden amber in color with a wispy 1/4" head that broke apart in seconds.

Smell: a bit of a sweet and herbal aroma was a bit off putting here.

Taste: light caramel flavor with some grainy malt sweetness, some grass, and a mild hop bitterness created somewhat of an off balanced and sweeter than exepected lager.

Mouthfeel: light in body. Light crispness to start, smooth at the finish. Relatively clean aftertaste.

Overall: this one was hard to finish after the first few swigs. Didn't know this was a Coors product until I looked it up, but it was disappointing from the the first sip.

look: 2.75 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

12oz bottle poured into a tapered pilsner glass.

A-Pours a golden color, minimal head, no lacing. There's plenty of lively carbonation (the best part of its appearance). Truthfully, this beer looks dirty.

S- Very grainy, stale. There is some note of a sweet candy but it is made up of smells that are just hard to get past the nose.

T- Grassy, wet grains, some caramel malt sweets...at best.

M- Watery, well carbonated. Sour finish.

O- It looks, smells, and tastes dirty. Were there no sanitation standards pre-prohibition? There is nothing good about this beer, and I am being polite and kind.

Macro swill disguised as craft or something more? Let's give it a whirl.

A: Fairly aggressive pour. Faint orange/copper hue. Excellent clarity. Vigorous carbonation. Two fingers cappuccino foam colored head. Moderate dissipation. Moderate lacing. Intrigued by the color.

S: Ah. Adjunct. Or at least some adjunct smells. Faint hop presence, almost like cooked veggies. Not quite to the level of Euro Pales, but in a similar vein. Nice caramel malts, touch of honey, bit of corn husk, slightly metallic.

T: Nice bit of malty sweetness up front, with a nice, dry hoppiness that cuts through. Again, borderline vegetal, but the hops are very present here. Reminds me of the pre-Gusto Shclitz. Corn flakes/dough in the finish.

M: A little softer in the palate than pretty much any AAL I've ever had. The carbonation isn't so bracing or seltzer like.

O: A hoppier and fuller bodied AAL? Unfortunately, this falls in the same price range as Sierra Nevada beers where I live, so I'll probably never buy it again. Make it as cheap as regular Coors and I've got a new go to. A much better swing towards quality than Shocktop or the like.

Bottle served into a British Pub style glass.

appearance- A light, golden caramel color, clear and easy to see through, small foamy head that dissipates quickly, no lacing

smell- almost and cereal bready smell to the beer, slight bite of corn, almost no detectable hop aroma

taste- cereal grains with touch of sweet maltiness, a bit of hop bitterness in the middle, which fades out to leave a corn and doughy flavor in the end

mouth feel- very light beer in the mouth, acidic feeling on the palate

Overall- Found this beer as an okay sessionable beer, a basic flavor that is drinkable but nothing to get you out of your seat for

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.
