ive drank 500 gallons, will drink 500 gallons more. this is a beer to cut your teeth on, to be a teenager with, to be outdoors with, to drink and drink and drink on long summer days with no water and find a decent forgiveness in the morning. this is the beer of smokey and the bandit, smokey runnin coolers of coors across old man river mississippi so all we east least can get a taste of the Rockies. this is the beer of Golden Colorado, Shelby County Tennessee, the Shenandoah Valley in Virginia, and every raging prom party worth a bucket of spit and a Kid Rock song. I drink it when the mountains turn BLUE.

My favorite Beer. Perfect, goes down smooth, perfect cold. Awesome taste. Doesn't make stomach upset. My favorite beer hands down!!!! The wide mouth makes every sip enjoyable.

Cans are just as good as the bottles. Obviously the cans are cheaper but the bottles are a great price as well!

When the mountains are blue, its Time to drink!!!

I don't always drink light beer, but when I do, I prefer Coors Light.

The appearance is a light straw color. The head is medium sized, but dissolves quickly into a small ring around the glass.

The smell is very faint. It consists of rice adjunct, white bread, some sweetness.

As for taste, it's watery, with a white, Sarah Lee breadiness and some rice, and a good backbone of maltiness, with hint of sweetness that becomes more vivd as the beer warms.

The mouthfeel is watery with lots of carbonation.

Overall, I give it a full mug. It's the only light beer I buy with my own money.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 5

Appearance: Burned impression of straw; in a clear keg cup or a red keg cup, the expectation is fulfilled; crystal clear; typical domestic light lager head; uninspiring to the connoisseur; liquid gold to the tailgater

Smell: Pleasantly outdoorsy despite the expectation of metallic overtones; clean rice as opposed to oppressive corn

Taste: Pure and clean; it simply tastes like American lager; light

Mouthfeel: Like a party in your mouth - a party where many people are leaving and many people are arriving at the same time

Drinkability: Impeccable, quantity-wise

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Appearance- A brown bottle. The Silver Bullet baby.

Smell- very musty, but isn't a turn off to this beer.

Taste- Great standard taste for any beer, but the taste can get bad after around beer number 3.

Mouthfeel- big mouth. Easy to down.

Drinkability- One of the most drinkable beers out there. If you're at a get together, I'd recommend this. If you're on a special occasion, avoid this beer. (Superbowls, and parties are perfect for this beer)

This beer is an American Light beer and I review it as such.

To me drinkability is one of the biggest things that is important, I like beer and I like to be able to drink more than 1 without feeling full.

Coors Light never dissapoints, always has a great taste and is very drinkable. It is my go to beer for events, tailgating, parties, or just grilling on a hot summer day.

A great beer, however beer snobs should avoid.

Had a coldie on tap, in the usual ballpark plastic cup, with a fully loaded hot dog at the Angels game yesterday. Delicious. Nothing like a beer and a dog at a ballgame, and neither one disappointed me, nor did the Halos. This is just a pleasant beer that I enjoy drinking.

Very dinkable light beer. Pours light yellow in color, very nice head with a crisp taste. The kinda beer you can drink doing yard work or sittting around by the pool with freinds. Has to be one of my favorite light beers. Flows smooth and easy. Wake up the next day with a smile even after many. Hang over free!!

This is definitely one of the great lite beers out there on the market today. Certainly a session beer, where the low alcohol percentage and few calories lets you drink up without feeling too full or bloated. I prefer it out of the bottle... Whenever I get it on tap it seems very watered-down and bland. Taste-wise, I've tried better lite beers, but this is certainly up there with some of the best. It is a definite classic and can be enjoyed with just about any food-pairing, especially good to be enjoyed with appetizers.

Okay, Okay, this beer is like water. But I still like it! It pours a very light yellow with lots of carbonation. This beer really does not have too much taste to speak of but I love to drink this beer with Mexican or Chinese food because it does not have a strong taste. It is a very light beer that does not fill you up when you are eating food. This is my go to beer when I just want to drink something light with food. So, ok, it is not a great beer by any means, but it is just fine for an American Macro Light Lager. Chow down and drink up! A great beer to eat food with when you don't care about matching food with the perfect beer. A great alternative to soda. :)

I think this beer is another example of beer snobs rating a beer low because it doesn't match what their idea of a good beer is. Now, I love a good beer, but this beer is pretty damn good. I have never had a beer as drinkable as this one, it goes down nice and easy. I will admit it doesn't look or smell all that exceptional, but the taste is crisp and clean and this is incredibly drinkable. Silver bullet all the way.

this beer really took me away to the rocky mountains. Coors light is a beer that only been and beautiful women drink. Having it cold and crisp brew really took me to another level of enjoyment. I almost cried as the frosty crisp mountain refreshness make love to my throat. Thank you god for Coors Light.

I love craft beer more than the next guy. More. I'm from the Portland metro area. I am blessed with countless microbreweries from Seattle to PDX. However, I love coors light. It's amazing. How could you down on such a smooth beer. Love is all I have for it.

Coors light drank from a can at a the US Nationals NHRA (drag race) in Indianapolis. The air temperature was 100 degs F. The track temperature was 135. The beer was cold and refreshing.
The color was not evident, but I am sure it was the pale yellow that it always is. The smell was faint with a bit of malt and hops. The flavor was pleasant with a bit of malt and a mere hint of hops.
The mouthfeel was adequate cool and carbonated.
This is a good beer under these circumstance. I would not want a heavier beer. The situation called for something light with a bit of flavor and this is it.
I am a long time fan of Coors. It was the featured beer at my wedding reception in 1979.

This has always been my go to beer. I enjoy it at all times of the year. It is a typical light beer with a clean pour, look, and taste. I do find that if it isn't served very cold it can leave a lingering unpleasant taste on the mouth. However, if I cannot find anything new or different to drink I always go for Coors Light.

Coors Light
Coors Brewing Company
Style: Light Lager
ABV: 4.20 %
can > pint glass, reviewed 10/16/09


Appearance is a very light/clear straw in color with noticeable carbonation. Suprising 2 finger head with short head retention but a bit better than most other light macros IMO.

Smell and taste is... well... almost invisible. Super clean and in almost non existent. If this is an objective of the Amercian Light macro scene, well than this brew has arrived. I prefer a bit more taste even in a light beer, but it is very impressive how clean this one is.

Mouthfeel is very light in body with high carbonation. Very clean profile with no aftertaste.

According to style I think Coors Light meets the objectives pretty well. It has a bit more of a cleaner profile than B&M, very light and non filling as you would expect. Drinkable if this is your type of style. I may have learned that I would choose a CL over BL or ML if someone is handing them out.

Coors Light has a medium, white head and a very clear, straw appearance, with a good amount of carbonation. The aroma is of a subtle beer sweetness, and the taste is surprisingly good, with a slightly sweet context, and with its rounded presentation, no particular ingredient flavor predominates. Mouth-feel is light and watery, and Coors Light finishes crisp and refreshing. Overall, I was expecting to hate this, and was pleasantly surprised. I have to recommend giving it a try, if one is a light beer drinker.

i think coors light is one of the better light macro beers out there so i am judging this purely on the category it's in. when i'm out with the boys on a saturday night and i've had quite a few 'good' beers, i am definately reaching for a few of these to finish the night.

Classic, cheap beer. One of the best party brews. Very drinkable and smooth. Is bitter at times, and is not consistent in its batches. I have multiple times, had skunked beers in the same case as decent coors.

Best way to drink the beer is on tap or keg. Not a beer for those who actually enjoy beer. Best if drank with country music, friends, and a fishing pole.

Poured from a 12oz can

This beer pours a clear pale yellow with a large head. This head vanishes quickly however, leaving very little lace

Slightly skunky with light malts and something else probably or a corn or rice addative

Extremely sweet malts with very little hop charecter

Light bodied with high carbonation

This beer is extremely drinkable, light bodied and sweet goes down like gingerale

this is without a doubt my favorite light beer, i dont really drink light beer so that isn't saying much but if i'm looking to play a bunch of drinking games with is what i would go with every time

This is one of my favorite Its the most drinkable one out of all the American light beers. This beer tastes much better out of the tap than the bottle or can. The thing that stands out most is the great taste,and the thing that I dislike the most is there is no smell and the color is similar to water. Overall a very good beer and I recommend this beer on a hot day while watching a baseball game.

OK I'm not going to B.S. you,it's not a beer rich in flavor nor does it have great head but by no means is it disgusting.It is what it is a light macro beer.It's not something you will go out of your way to buy but on a hot summer day it tastes real good.

I thoroughly enjoy this beer. In fact, on the weekends this is among my top 3 choices. Its a very flavorful beer that although may be very overpowering for some enthusiasts because its not a very grainy flavor, it is very enjoyable to drink as a 'fun' beer. The silver bullet can is well done as well. The can is tall and thin which makes it nice to hold and the silver with the mountains gives it a cool and chilled look.

Coors Light I give credit for two things it seems to get colder than any other beer and it is about only choice to when losing weight without drinking super low calorie water beers. Miller Lite sucks so bad it makes Coors Light seem elite in this category of light beers.
