12 oz. Can

A: Piss colored beer; it looks like every other cheap light beer, yellow and very carbonated.

S: Smells like air and corn preservatives.

T: Tastes like water and corn starch. The corn is unpleasant and the bitterness is awkward.

M: Decent mouthfell, it has to have this considering how light it is.

D: It's light beer, so it's drinkable.

I like it better than Bud and Miller Light, but frankly I can't imagine someone drinking this for any reason other than to get drunk or so they can show off that they had a beer.

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?

I'm guessing it wasn't fair to drink this after a Trappist Rochefort 10. :lol:

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.

Poured into a pint glass.

A: Very light blonde color with a hazy, carbonated look.

S: Smells like beer. Nothing unique stands out to give it any distinctness.

T: The taste of light beer. You have a hint of hops but with a light aftertaste. It is quite similar to Miller lite but taste a little more watery. Aftertaste doesn't stay with you too long.

M&D: It has a carbonated and thin feel to the mouth. A drinkable beer especially in the summer.

This is a beer I would drink for a light american lager.

Pours a crystal clear light, almost clear, yellow with a 1 inch fizzy white head that fades to nothing. No lacing at all. Smell is of grains and corn flakes. Taste is the same with the grains and corn flakes. There is a slightly metallic taste present as well. A high level of carbonation makes for a very crisp and clean mouthfeel. Overall, this is a below average but quite drinkable beer. Not too bad for what it is.

I love beer and I drink it every day. At (age) 62, carbs are an important factor. High carbs = high weight gain. Must keep the carbs at or below 5.5g/beer. I want to be treated right with a beer's alcohol content too, which is just as important to me as any other attribute. Coors Light is always an excellent choice for me. The aroma, flavor, after burp, 4.2 ABV and at 5g carbs Coors Light is a great beer. A straight shot about every three beers or so makes up for the slightly lower alcohol content. I love the flavor the aluminum can adds, but the flavor of Coors Light from the bottle is fine too. Adolf Coors (who became a proud American) went to a lot of trouble to find the right water with which to brew a great beer and I think he did. I think he'd be proud of Coors Light.

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.
