Hmmm...Not really sure what to say about this beer...Appearance was a light buttercup with a distinct amount of haze to it. Very thin head with overly active carbonation. Aroma was weakly of grain. Tasted like light grain in carbonated water....slight (very slight!) hop crispness at the end. Overactive carbonation in the mouth is distracting....

Presentation: "The Silver Bullet" -- 24oz "grande" silver can with wide-mouth pour. Bottled on date located at the bottom of the can.

Appearance: A crystal clear, bright pale yellow liquid with not much of a head at all. In fact, it's nearly still.

Smell: Some very faint fruits, touch of sulfur and weak tea-like hop in the aroma.

Taste: Quite sweet, dextrin-like with an odd fruit punch and watery banana sweetness flavour that makes it difficult to believe that this is purely a malt beverage. Paired with a tight carbonation, there's a hop bitterness that follows. It's mildly lemon-like in character and creates a semi-puckering dry snap. Metallic flavours pull thru with a slight grain dryness towards the end. Both linger on the palate for sometime and intensifies, especially as the beer warms.

Notes: Why bother?

What more can you say about Coors Light other than it is one of the most bland, dull and boring beers ever made. Pale and bubbly like gingerale. No nose whatsoever....ok, maybe some corn and grainy notes. Taste is not only light and watery, it is also chalky and dry. The mouthfeel is bubbly and rough and the finish is dry.

This is a horrible beer. It is not even beer. Have it ice cold on a summer afternoon and it will go down like water. Less than a beer for the masses. A new low.

Appearance - This gave off a disappointing head and shown a dim, pissy yellow.

Smell - There's nothing offensive about this grain but really no meat to it at all. Granted this is a LL so is not going to bowl you over with a powerful nose, but I seriously can't smell anything coming out of the glass.

Taste - The flavor was a bit more on the mark. The grain showed a nice spark if maybe a bit on the stale side but overall this was not a bad taste.

Mouthfeel - This was behind the pack. The carbonation was cheap and fizzy like a wine cooler and the thinness of the beer left me wanting. The LLs are of course naturally thin but here the body was like a glass of water.

Sinkability - It has to be pretty damn hot and you gotta be pretty damn thirsty to want to drink twelve ounces of this stuff.

The old Silver Bullet. I love how Coors' entire marketing scheme is to drink their beer as cold as humanly possible. Of all the macros out there, this is probably one of the most flavorless. It taste like seltzer water with a few kernels of corn and grain dropped in. In essence, it almost takes like nothing, which actually ranks it above a few of the other big-time macro brews that taste like shit, especially when they get warm.

Pale straw color with a fizzly, nearly nonexistent head. Aroma: none. Taste: barely any. Mouth feel: pure carbon dioxide. I don't really think a beer can be much more vapid than this one. At least they have cool marketing schemes, like the mountains that turn blue, or the wide mouth can opening so you can pour this swill down your gullet even faster, right? ....RIGHT? There's no reason to ever buy this stuff (that can be said about a lot of beers, though), simple as that.

This beer is simple.

A- Light yellow of pale corn brewing standard.
Light carbanation and head.

S- Nothing other than some rice and small amount of malts.

T- Well...corn and slight rice... not very pleasing to a real beer drinker.

M- Not easy on the taste buds as it seems to be a sour feel.

D- Watered down beer can be consumed...RIGHT?

Drink only if its the only thing around.

Like the previous reviewer said, the only redeemable qualitly of this beer is it's poundablility. This has been a staple in the beer bongs of parties I have attended over the years, and after actually trying one for real I know why. No one in their right mind would want to drink this swill over all the other great beers out there right now. It pours a thin golden color with a thin white head. Has almost no smell other than carbonation and tastes like carbonated water. The only time I would conciter drinkind this would be if I really wanted to get drunk and it was free....on second thoutght, not even then. A horrible brew and even more proof that light=bad.

So, I'm at my sister's house for a party. She told me to bring beer that I wanted, because she knows I'm a little picky. Otherwise, she had plenty of beer for others to drink. I bring a 12 pack of Sam"s Summer Selection ($9.99 at the local Hannaford's), and it promptly gets drunk by the partygoers. To make a long story short, this is how I came to drink Coors Light.
The beer is an insipid yellow color, with a head that disappears in seconds. It had a corn malt aroma and taste. A thoroughly unrewarding beer; I should have just drunk water.
