I went to a bar that had $6 Japanese Macro beers and $2 Coors Light on draft. So I went with the silver bullet based purely on cheapness.

It tasted just as watery as the last time I had it. The color is what you all know well, the palest of yellows with just a dapple of head. The smell is a little grain, maybe some corn and a generic metallic hop aroma. It was not good, there was some residual sweetness that I did not remember it having since usually these beers were being shotgunned.

I got a pitcher with my buddies at a local place called Blue Sky Bar and Grill, but given that you can find the silver bullet anywhere, that doesn't really mean much.

Appearance: Poured with a thumb of head that did not lace whatsoever but did manage to retain about half a finger decently. The body is a clear yellow, that boasts a lot of carbonation.

Smell: Not much to this one, extremely subdued and I'm catching only the fainest whiffs of corn, rice and malt. Given it's a light beer, a faint nose is sort of expected and it's not unpleasant, just boring and generic.

Taste: Well it's not bad, but it is watered down. Starts with a corn flavor with the barest notes of malt. The malt then somewhat asserts itself as you get hints of rice in the background just before ending with a slight bitter wisp at the end. Incredibly boring, and generic in extreme, even for a light beer.

Mouthfeel: The beer doesn't leave an aftertaste and the carbonation is decent at helps the beer a little bit. Also despite being watered down, it doesn't leave your mouth moist. It transitions well, although that is more due to how little there is to transition between.

Drinkability: As expected, the only redeeming quality of this beer is that it can be put back with ease and that it quenches thirst. It's light on the stomach and doesn't cause much in the way of gas. The lack of flavor though leaves quite a bit to be desired.

Final Thoughts: As one of the beers that most BA's love to hate, the silver bullet isn't as bad as everyone makes it out to be. Now I'm not saying I like it, but it's pretty much the standard for the Light Lager style. If you are looking to have a couple with the boys on a hot summer day, but have to drive home then yeah, maybe get Coors Light.

A thin, watery amber color. A brief, foamy white head that leaves NO lace. As for the aroma, it’s weird because even though there is so little to pick out, it’s still somehow bad. As for the flavor...well, there isn’t any really, except for a very, very faint grain flavor. Mouthfeel is watery with very little carbonation. Avoid this one.

Note: Served in a 12oz bottle with an accompanying 12oz mug on cheap beer night at a local establishment.

This beer pours to a light yellow and a quickly dissipating head. Smell is mostly of corn adjuncts. Taste is rather bland, hints of corn in the aroma, aftertaste however is minimal. Mouthfeel is reminiscent of Soda Water. However one could easily take a 12 pack of these and easily put them back without even thinking about it. Very easy to drink, just not a very good beer.

There are always these for the taking at my Weekly fri. card games. So when I’m done my beer I decided to grab one last week. Pours a clear, bright pale yellow color with not much head at all. On the nose the aroma is fairly clean. On the palate the flavor (what flavor there is) is slighty bitter, nice sweetness as it warms, very light lemon character, and light graininess.

Coors Light was a very pale golden color with good clarity. It had a white head that disappeared almost instantly. The aroma was very clean with a hint of sweet grain. The taste was very light, with a little malt flavor. The mouthfeel was very light and watery (even for a light beer) with medium carbonation. Drinkability was below average. This has got to be about the most watered down beer I have ever tried. Not recommended.
