Many judge this beer just based off the company that it derives from. Too many people have given very little effort to actually enjoy what Coors is trying to do with their release of more "craft" like brews. If you stop and look at the price you'll see that they are bumping things up with the next step of flavors at a very affordable cost for consumers. Kudos to Coors!
At first taste I didn't think it was anything special but I did enjoy the different kick that it offers. It's not a Fat Tire or an Alaskan Amber....but it is it's own flavor. After the second one I tried a couple days later I had no complaints. It's a mild Amber that I guess you could consider universal to any crowd that enjoys trying new things. Doesn't overwhelm the taste buds or leave a pungaent after taste in your mouth. I'll throw my thumbs in the iar for this one. It's gonna catch on.

Appearance is really great. Huge off white head clear amber color and really dense lacing.
Still had some head at the bottom of my nonic glass. Smell is bready malt with a bit of caramel malt. No hop smell.
Taste is sweet malts with enough herbal hops to balance the taste.
Mouthfeel is medium with enough carbonation. Finish is slightly dry with a balanced finish.
Overall I did not care for the bottled version but this review comes from a 16 ounce can brewed in Ft. Worth (Miller) and it is much better than the bottled version. I hate to say this as a long time union member but the boys in Ft. Worth are brewing some excellent beers. Check out the Fosters Oil cans from the same brewery. Best Fosters ever. The can date Jun 16 2014. Has to be the brewed on date cause this beer was really tasty.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a dark golden color with a 1/2 inch head. smell is very mild, some light malts. Taste is also mild, malty, a bit of grains, refreshing but bland. Feels light in the mouth and overall not terrible, but nothing special about this beer.
