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.

3.16/5 rDev +4.6%

12 oz bottle poured into a snifter.
Pours a copper color with a half finger of foam that dissipates quickly. Aroma is grainy, minerally, not much by way of hop or sweet malt aromas.
This beer has a strong crystal malt sweetness at first, with a very flat finish. Not much lingering flavor, and not much hop flavor comes through. There is nothing bad about this per se, it is just very basic and one dimensional.
This is basically a plain old amber beer with nothing else to differentiate it. Drinkable for sure, but there are much better beers to be had.
