Thanks Ratman for giving me a bottle of this one the other day. Good refreshment for late afternoon. Poured a nice dark golden color with a good sized white head. Aromas of bread, cereal and light hops. On the palate, light bodied, with cereal, corn and bread.

Am. lager for first warm days of spring this year.
A little malt, a little corn. mild yeast qualities. Kinda' standard, but solid and pleasing.
Dark for style, darker gold to bronze. Nice dense white head. Very clear.
Sharp prickly carbonation, creates full mouthfeel and softness. A little heavier body than is standard for style.
Heavier malt flavor for style. A touch of sweetness. Adjunct more hidden than in the aroma. Clear hop flavors (a little spicy and herbal) and smooth transition to the bitterness, which lingers through a long rather dry finish.
A bigger tasting and fuller richer lager than typical.

Solid golden color with some off-white froth on top. Sweet, clean malt and grassy, spicy hop aromas. More noble-like hops in he mouth with some added floral character, sweet-ish cereal grain, hay, and fruity yeast. Pretty crisp and lightly bitter. Not too shabby all around, for what it is.

I found this at Sal's Liquors in Addison, IL for $8.99 a 6 pack. Never heard of this Coor's product before, so picked it up more out of curiosity than anything else. 12oz brown bottles with no freshness date.

The beer pours a perfectly clear gold color with a big 4-finger white head that lasts awhile and leaves lots of nice lacing.

Some grain and some grass in the aroma, but overall not much of a smell.

It has a crackery malt base with a little corn sweetness to it along with a mild bitter hop bite.

Between light and medium in body with medium carbonation.

A decent effort from Coors.

On tap at the Village Tavern, in Geneseo, NY.

Pours a golden yellow color. One inch head, not much lacing at all.

Smells like grain, malt, honey, and grass.

The taste is very similar- nice to have actual flavor in an adjunct Coors product. Honey malt sweetness, with some grassy hop flavors, almost akin to pilsner like hop flavor, but not as strong.

Light bodied, well carbonated, easily drinkable.

Probably Coors' best product, including the million different Blue Moon variants. Was pleasantly surprised with this one.

3.53/5  rDev +5.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Clear deep golden color, with a massive, dense white head, which retains superbly. The carbonation is slight. The lacing is dense and complex, resembling alien hieroglyphics.

Aroma: Lots of grain with a solid grassy aroma., and a modest herbal hop aroma.

Taste: Opens with a solid grain backbone, very much like a Czech Pilsener, absent the classic cracker malt. As the taste progresses, fairly sharp herbal and grassy hop notes appear, these turn to a medicinal cast as the taste draws to a close.

Mouth feel: Smooth, soft, full, quite pleasant.

Drinkability/notes: Very nicely done, Coors has upped their game quite a bit with this example.

Presentation: Packaged in a custom twelve-ounce brown glass long-neck bottle, served in a New Belgium Brewing chalice.

Pours a brilliant golden brown with a frothy one inch ivory head that dissipates very slowly, leaving thick lacing.

Corn and grain dominate the aroma, with a funky tangy note and subtle earthy hops rounding things out.

Flavor is grainy, with nutty, lightly toasted malt forming the backbone. The tang is present, but more subdued than in the aroma. Becomes cardboard-like as it warms.

Body is moderate, with moderate carbonation and a bit of grainy astringency.

It actually has malt flavor. The graininess and tang are somewhat offputting.
