Coors Light is what it is. The one thing that bothers me about this website is that people continually tear down the big companies as awful beer. The beer is obviously nowhere near as good as a $27 Belgian, but it is what it is. That being said, compared to drinks like Miller Lite, Coors Light really isn't very good. Like Bud Light, it has very very very little taste, but is perfect for mass consumption. Basically, these beers are made for mass comsumption and they are perfect for it. If you want taste out of any of the big brand beers Miller Lite is by far and away the best option.

Poured into a pint glass from a can.

Appearance: Almost clear with a yellow tint. Thick white head that disappeared quickly.

Smell: Sweet corn and malts.

Mouthfeel/Taste: Light bodied and smooth. Almost no taste other than sugar and alcohol.

Overall: It was what I expected...a blan light beer with no charcter.

Coors light is not a bad light beer. It is very drinkable manly because it tastes like water, you can pop alot of these anytime of the day. It is very drinkable. The look of this beer is colorless with hints of yellow, no smell and really no head to speak of. The smell, isn't awful because there isn't really a smell. The taste is like a refreshing water on a hot day but is that what we want in our beer. Taste some hop but not much. Coors Light is not the light beer commercials will have you believe. Pass on this, if you need a light beer try Miller Lite. At least it tastes somewhat like beer.

I swear it was free, did not pay money for this. Pours a nice 1/4 inch head that falls fast into almost no head and absolutely no lacing. The color is slightly yellow, but looks like water with a tiny amount of iodine. Smell is slightly sour with a slight scent of grain, not a lot of aroma. A small lager flavor hits the tongue and leaves right away with a small nose of the same, lager flavor with a hint of corn. Mouthfeel is like a light soda pop with a strong acidic bite. Overall, this is something I could never get used to and drink on a regular basis.

Only had this brew because part of a 6-pack was left at my house. Figured might as well... poured a very light straw color with small white head. This beer has a grainy smell that was barely present. The taste was the worst I have ever had. There seems to be something wrong in the formula. It is almost a bad metallic taste (out of a bottle). And the aftertaste just leaves a bitter (and not good hops bitter) taste that will not go away. I am glad that I didn't buy this beer or I would be horribly upset, but since it was free, whatever... avoid at all costs!

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.

Last sampled on 7/25/14. Come to find out that I never did a review on this 'common' brew at all so it goes as I have had this one in bottles, cans and on tap over the years. Bought 2-12 packs in bottle for $9.99 each. Bottle(s) chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a vintage Coor's pilsner glass.

Pours a pale golden in color with a very thin white head. Very little spotty lacing is seen. The aroma is just of some grains for the most part. The taste is about the same with a hint of sweet corn also. On the thin side. Lots of carbonation. Nothing real special here but a decent light brew for the warmer months. Overall, I still like it.
