This faux-craft offering from Miller/Coors was a mild surprise in my local bodega's cold storage as the workers there are used to my visits as I tease them with questions about their stunning (lack of) selection of beer and ask for Sierra Nevada Torpedo or DFH 90 Minute IPA. They were laughing when they suggested this to me, so I knew I was in for it.

I tried the orange and gold lager straight from the can first and thought it was stronger version of Miller High Life recreated in both aroma and taste, but it actually delivered a better taste than that. Not exciting, but something that was more or less mainstream and probably good to cook with.

The smooth taste of corn resonates through this lager, which may have a trace or two of hops in its finish. This is one of those beers that gets over powered by the Doritos at a party, mostly due to its inoffensive character.

3.21/5  rDev +6.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

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.

Awesome. This is a really good lager for after a long day at work. The 6 pack is really cheap at $5 and some change. I really like this beer. I will keep this beer in my fridge.I really don't know what else to write because it keeps saying invalid comment length
