Ba Review #282
Served On: 06/29/2013
Glassware: Pint Glass
Labeled ABV: 5.5%
Date/ Code: -

This was a bottle from a sixer I picked up at the Red Roase bar in Hellam, PA.

Look: A clear watery straw consistency with no real color profile. This beer could probably define the word ‘pale’. The head was just a thin coating of white haze. There was some noticeable lacing when I tipped the glass.

Smell: Surprisingly no real skunk in the aroma. Besides that, not much of a nose. Sweet grainy corn and rice with a solvent chariter.

Taste: At first I got a crisp refreshing sensation followed by some metallic and corn notes. After about four sips it started tasting like water with a terrible dry metallic aftertaste. It was the same aftertaste I get with Yuengling Traditional Lager (which this probably could pass for if they added caramel coloring like Yuengling does).

I think the quality of this beer is relative to the situation. In my case it was the better of multiple evils, and it was hot out. If I were to have this beer at a bar or restaurant, it would certainly be a lot worse.

12 fl oz bottle served in a pilsner glass, reviewed live:

A - Pours a transparent, dark gold color with a white two finger head. Retention is poor. Better looking than I expected, but still nothing special.

S - Mild, mild aroma. Some sweet pale malt and caramel is about all I get off this one. Disappointing to say the least.

T - Unrefined barley, stale cereal and a bit of oddly placed cream. It's a little more bitter on the finish from the generic hops, but this is the only thing that really differentiates this one from standard Coors. It's simple, uninspired, and in my opinion, just a marketing ploy.

M - Medium bodied, smooth, and strangely thick. It's o.k. at best.

D - Not a fan of this one. There's hardly anything that sets this apart from your everyday Coors. If you like the original, though, you won't be disappointed with this.

having not tried Coors latest ,picked up a sixer

now before review this what caught my eye
hops ,lager

ok here we go

poured into a Sierra nevada ale pint glass

light amber , appears to be artificial carbonation, perfect head, lacing ? bah
nose - not much
ad says hops where are they ?
lager - absolutely not

another george killians type slightly better, but not there yet , i guess this is to appeal to the budweiser masses ,was really "hopping" for a change

same ole same ole just a different bottle of corn -rice malt beer from Coors.

save your money,considering the $9 a sixer at local Publix false advertising on Coors part.

to bad they have the money and market to make a real good beer. this is not

12oz bottle into a pint. Thanks to Eric for continuing to spoil (?) me with a bunch of beer I would otherwise never get to try because I refuse to buy this sort of stuff. It appears in my glass a color of artificial caramel coloring that is perfectly clear with some yellowish hints around the edges. A mildly off-white cap resides atop and refuses to die in the glass. It paints some patches of lace on the glassware and honestly doesn't look that bad even by american adjunct standards.

The aroma is immediately reminiscent of a bunch of bad nights chugging coors original aka banquet beer in my pre-legal years. It smells of sweetness like caramel candy coupled with toffee, corn and buttered popcorn. There is a trace amount of herbal hops that try to break things up, but for the most part this smells like a dirty sugary adjunct brew.

The flavor of this brew is somewhat like buttered popcorn coupled with a bit of caramel to candy toffee flavoring. A faint amount of herbal hops are present that break up the sweetness of the malt but are not present enough to have any distinct flavoring. The aftertaste is minorly carbonic and includes some sulfur and hints of that almost artificial tasting caramel or toffee with herbal hops.

This is a medium to lighter bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. In the past year I have had several "pre-prohibition brews" that were very enjoyable. This however was not that enjoyable. It tastes like coors original/banquet beer but with a dirty caramel flavor and a touch of herbal hops.
