Ah yes, the universally panned beer. The dreaded, hated, evil light macro. Coors Light is 'drinkable', though, to the extent that it tastes like Perrier water.

Appearance: unimpressive clear light yellow. Head fizzles away in record timing.

Smell: some traces of malt, mostly corn and wheat. Inoffensive, but nothing to write home about.

Taste and Mouthfeel: mild carbonated bite, corny malt flavour, watery finish, no aftertaste.

Drinkability: it's quaffable, but so is H2O. While I prefer this to some of the higher strength macros like Bud and Fosters, it's still a forgettable mass-market nothing beer.

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.
