look: 2 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

nice standard 1/2" off-white head that dissipates quickly, virtually no lacing is present. golden straw, bubbly body with a pale yellow tint.

smells of corn, rice, and a lager house. faint apple juice aroma.

tastes like perrier with a dash of hops. not pellegrino, perrier.

crisp, clean, refreshing on-bringing comes to a smooth, wet finish. bring on nine more of these babies.

taste the rockies, people.

Pitcher @ the Firehouse Pub & Grill, Meridian ID. Not my first choice, but it was free...poured into a pint glass.

A: Barely any yellow in this straw beer...painfully clear and light-colored. Lower carbonation levels visible...fizzy white head dissipates quickly.

S: Grain husk...some adjuncts along with the malt, a light barnyard/manure smell...nothing else. Absolutely no hops.

T: A touch of crisp sweet malt...skunk, maybe mashed bananas and rotten apples? Those flavors are very distant, overall this beer tastes like lightly flavored water.

MF: Crisp light mouthfeel, higher carbonation levels.

O: For as watery as it is, this beer is NOT easy to throw back...its not refreshing, much less good.

12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass -

A - pours a transparent, pale golden color. The head is pale white with no cream, one finger's height, and abysmal retention. I looked away for a few seconds and the head was gone.

S - Stale cereal grains dominate. Hardly any other notes to speak of. Very mild in strength.

T - Sharp corn/grainy notes throughout it's entirety. Watery, and has no hops characters or esters to be found. Very simple (not surprisingly).

M - Highly carbonated and crisp on the front with a smooth finish.

D - Yes, it is drinkable, but there are certainly better choices, even in the cheap American adjunct beer category. Hell, at least drink original Coors.

Drank straight from the bottle.

Not a whole lot of smell I could honestly detect which is typical of these types of beers.

The taste was not repulsive but not appealing either. It honestly did not have much taste at all. Maybe a slight breadiness that reminded me of watered down Coors Banquet.

It is better than bud light but that isn't saying much. There are better light beer options out there.

Pours as an American Light Lager would.

Smells as an American Light Lager does: ricey, corny, watery, blah.

Tastes like water. Literally, water. The least amount of taste out of Coors Light, Bud Light and Miller Lite. Just not impressive at all.

Overall, a beer for the birds. Nice if all you want is to pee and get wasted.

A: pours a very light white gold color. Very pale & clearly clear. Quarter inch of head quickly settles to nothing..

S: lots of cooked veggies on the nose.. sweet cereal grain as well..

T: upfront is an almost medicinal cooked veggie taste. I've always encountered this when drinking coors light. Middle is cooked corn with an underlying sweetness. Finish is bland with some sweetness & more corn flavor.

Mf: very light & watery.. crisp carbonation.

O: very bland beer, even for the style.

look: 1.5 | smell: 1 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 1.5

Appearance - Pale yellow and little color.Fizzy clumpy foam.

Smell - Sour skunk and very faint hops.

Taste - Better than Bud light and Keystone, but still not good by any means. Even for the category this is awful. This beer never fails to give me a headache.

Mouthfeel and Drinkability - Easily drinkable and okay for when you don't care what you're drinking. But for now, I think I'll go back to real beer.

Poured from 12oz bottle into pint glass while it's SUPER COLD!! THANKS COACH!

A- It looks really pale with a tiny white bubbly head that dissappears quickly

S- it smells a lot better than the miller light I just had. Some corn scents but also smells sweeter than most "lower class" beers

T- Hmmm I'm very surprised. It's significantly better than bud and miller lights. Sweet taste of corn but not really terrible

M- Feels like drinkin a fountain soda

O- For what beers this is compared too this is amazing! But to compare this to other beers isn't fair as it sucks in that regard. That being said, I'm going to compare this to Bud and Miller and give it a thumbs up

12oz can to pint glass.
As with most light lagers, Coors Light is very pale yellow in color with sharp clarity. The nose is pretty weak and corn seems to be the dominate component. There is, however, a faint floral scent as well. Taste is predictably sweet and very mild. Body is super light and thin. True to style, this is drinkable but not very enjoyable.

I can't believe I'm actually reviewing this beer. I've had it several times before after a night of heavy drinking when there was nothing else left but this is the first time I poured it into a glass.
It's yellow and fizzy with a short white head that thinned to a ring in less than 30 seconds.
It smells like sour grain. It doesn't really have too much flavor other than grain, stale corn chips. It has a light body and goes down fairly easy which I guess is average for the style. Overall it's just a cheap beer meant for mass consumption by others, not me.
