I can't believe that I am actually reviewing Coors light.
I poured the beer into a crystal mug. The color is a very pale clear yellow. There was no head and no lacing, which made for weak appearance.
Hardly any smell either, maybe hints of grain and corn.
The taste is weak as well, very watery, but slight grain and corn flavors. I guess that is how it is supposed to be for this beer style. On a very hot day, this will be a good thirst quencher.

what the hell, the opportunity has presented itself and i have nothing better to do...

12oz cold-activated can served in a pint glass. hallelujah, the mountains were blue!

pours a pale yellow tone with a finger of spritzy head that demonstrates practically no retention whatsoever; lacing too is nonexistent. (no big shock on either count.)

nose is just... absent. very subdued grainy notes.

flavor profile follows the nose: nothing. a bit grainy... completely underwhelming; beer-flavored seltzer all the way (made with artificial beer flavoring). yes, this is a light beer, but even by that standard this is exceptionally light.

mouthfeel is more or less standard for the style; light-bodied, watery, high carbonation. drinkability is this beer's major selling point (which isn't saying much); marketed to a younger demographic more interested in quantify than quality, IMO coors light succeeds to some degree. inoffensive and super light, i *could* drink a few of these... i just don't see the point.

look: 2 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 3

Appearance - Piss straw body, visible carbonation. Pours a white half-finger head that dissipates quickly.

Smell - Hardly any to speak of. Very weak corn smell. No hopiness, but it's an AAL, wtf.

Taste - Super weak musky corn with a bit of a stale, very slight metallic aftertaste. Dull as hell, but not offensive. There's not enough in this beer to be offensive.

Mouthfeel - Not enough carbonation. A little to full. Feels flat even though it's not.

Drinkability - Average. What else can I say? Saying this beer has bad drinkability is like saying water has bad drinkability.

I feel sort of silly reviewing this beer.
Appearance is bland, typical straw yellow with no head or lacing.
Smell is virtually non-existent. I really don't smell anything, maybe a bit of corn malt.
Taste is not bad. There is really no taste there though. It just is smooth.
Mouthfeel is very light.
Drinkability- I looked down and was almost done, not a sipper.

look: 1 | smell: 4 | taste: 1 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 1.5

Light light yellow with white white head of bursting big bubbles without retention or stickyness. Lokks a little like pale ginger ale.
Smell is great - some corn-like sweetness with a very pleasing level of diacetyl, some leafy saaz and a hint of toasted grains.
Taste begins like water with grain flavoring but then the sweetness and butteriness quickly disappear leaving an astringent metallic sting. Medium harsh carbonation, sort of soda-like high frustose corn syrup feel.
Although I find the aroma to be quite pleasing, the taste ruins it. Not an enjoyable beer for me.

look: 2 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 4

A: pint glass. pours a bright yellow color, almost vitamin enriched urine like. White head that is gone almost immediately. almost no lacing.

S: smells like a combination of wet cardboard and corm malts. no hop aroma at all.

T: sweet corn malts, with a light hint of citrus. that is about it.

M:The carbonation level is insane, way too high for me. thin-bodied. crisp to an extent.

D: I have had several of these in one sitting, but only because I was going for longevity at a bar watching football, with no other alternatives.

look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Appearance: Completely translucent pale yellow. Had a white head that disappeared almost instantly.

Aroma: Almost no smell. Just a bit of corn and yeast.

Taste: A watered down pilsener. No malt presence because that has been replaced with corn or some other adjunct. A hint of bitterness right at the beginning but nothing after that.

Mouthfeel: Besides the taste, everything about this beer reminds me of a highly carbonated soda.

Final Thoughts: As far as macro lagers go, I've had worse. However, there are a lot of craft brewers making pilseners that completely take the cake compared to this one. So if you really like this style then check out your local brewery's selection.
