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.

12oz bottle poured into a tulip. MAR0413 on the bottle.

A: Pours a clear golden with a two finger dense white head. Ample carbonation visible in the body. Pretty good lacing.

S: I get light malts like wheat and a hint of hops in the background.

T: A balanced light taste of malts and hops that ends with a slight fruit taste. Some alcohol on the backend. Better cold.

M: Light body, pretty good carbonation. Very easy drinking.

Overall its a good attempt by Coors and hopefully it will lead more people into craft beer.

Good looking, golden and clear with rising bubbles and a nice two finger head that had staying power and left nice lace.

Aroma was light, grains predominantly but some sweet maltiness.

Taste was actually pretty good. It's a little sweet at first, but a dry graininess, followed by some hay and a bit of a crisp hops bite follows up quickly. There's a light corn and malt base, along with a little caramel too.

Body is very light and pretty well carbonated, extremely easy to drink.

I bought a single of this in a mixer sixer just to try/review it. I didn't realize it was a Coors product, but I probably would have tried it anyway. I must say that this beer is pretty damn good stuff, and that I actually hope that Coors markets it well and it sells well to their base customers. It has flavor, head, and color, and while not really the go-to choice for a hophead like me, I'm sure that your average BMC drinker would enjoy this beer. I would not complain if I went to a party and this was the only beer they had.

This is a very good American Adjunct Lager.

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.

Appearance:
Amber-gold color, clear. Lots of small bubbles rising up to the top. Thick frothy head. Leaves a very nice lacing behind.

Aroma:
Very strong aroma... Citrus-spicy hops, sweet malts, a little piney.

Taste:
Sweet malts, bready, toasted, a little caramel, just a dash of corn. Hop bitterness is medium, sharp, but mainly citrus-piney. Finish is very dry. Body is light-medium, carbonation is very active, crisp.

12 oz bottle into a bell glass.
A- golden color with a small head that recedes pretty quick leaving little lacing.
S- the only below average aspect of the beer, slight corn/straw smell.
T- nice balance of sugary malts and slight hop presence. the hops and some straw malts help keep this from being too sweet. very sessionable.
M- average carbonation - average body. not bad.
O- more flavor than most of its style, yet not too sweet. a lot like a euro pale ale. not a bad option if you're looking for a decent lighter beer.

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.

deep golden with a thick white foamy head that stayed around for awhile. smell was sweet with a little teabag type hop in the background. taste was overly sweet for me, but it went GREAT with the hot, fresh cheese pizza that i had with it. it complemented the crust and cheese in a fine way. i also had it with a bunch of tacos a few nights later...again, solid with food. it has a medium heavy mouthfeel and goes down very smoothly. again, the only complaint i have is that it is a bit overly sweet for me to enjoy without food. good offering from coors, though...by far and away the most taste in a bmc beer i have had.

The appearance is a deep bronze, mildly carbonated, with a thick white head. The taste is hop forward, but not overly hoppy, balanced out with malt character. Batch 19 is a well rounded brew. This is a very solid offering from Coors. I can't help but think that many reviewers are biased because this is produced by a big brewer. I will definitely keep this one in my rotation, and I advise any beer lover to at least give this one a shot.
