12oz bottle, pours a deeper golden/copper color with a foamy off-white head, good lace surprisingly. Aromas are lager yeast, grain, grassy, fruity -apricot? Tastes are different - grainy, bready, bread crust, odd veggie, onion, rum, and tea. Good body, creamy, smooth, ample carbonation. Overall, I found some of the flavors to be somewhat odd, and the onion notes were rather off-putting. Fun to try, but I'd pass on it if I came across it again.

Saw a display of this beer, and was lured in by the packaging. Didn't realize this was a Coors product until I got home and scoured the packaging for who was behind this shadowy looking brew.

The appearance of this brew is quite more appetizing than your standard Coors. Makes a strong two finger thick white foam crown, and the body is copper brown in color, and has no haze.

The aroma is very metallic, has tobacco traits, and some lemon and tea hints as well.

Taste wise I detect a small amount of sweet corn, corn husk, cooked veggie mix, and mild tobacco.

Feels medium in body, oily, and dry to the palate.

Overall a better brew than I was expecting, and this needs to be made more mainstream so i can eat this with some wings at Bdubs.

Best by 11/12/12.

Pours a clear golden-orange with a foamy beige head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, grass, and hay. Taste is fairly sweet and is of malt, grain, caramel, and some slight grass and hay flavors on the finish. There is a mild bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that I would not ever think was something Coors produced in a blind tasting.

On tap at Chops Steakhouse Sacramento

I like the marketing. Cool tap handle. Like the throwback theme

Strong jump on the palate from the start. American strong ale feelings
Malty. Apricot. Almost cloying. Tasty. Strong herbal flavors in the middle. Oily.

Becomes crisp at the end. Lingering grassy hops.

This is an excellent adjunct lager. After finding out this was Coors I was very surprised. nice job.

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.

Poured a golden red yellow with a white head that didn't leave much lacing. A nice color for what I would consider a light beer.

Smells pretty good! Might be something like a pbr with a touch more grain bill and some hops in there. This one is definitely different from the usual Coors offering!

Taste was nice, its as if they took a regular american adjunct lager and actually used a good amount grains and hops. In other words, this one doesn't taste like water... I really want to introduce my bud light only brother to this one. Perhaps it could be an easier gateway beer into more craft.

mouthfeel to me was a little too carbonated. If it were only creamier feeling I would have given it a better score.

Overall, I am enjoying this one. If I do see this on tap I might grab it at some point. It reminds me of times gone by.
