look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

Wow, this brew is a lot like Heineken, meek in flavor and without boldness

Two finger fast reducing head

Smells of beechwood and grain

Taste: smoky, with a sweet malt finish

Mouthfeel: Thin and watery

Overall, this was a decent job by Coors! Yet, this is not going to be a frequent flyer in my refrigerator. Quite frankly, I'd have this over a PBR, Bud, or Miller Lite.

Serving type: bottle

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 4

A: Looks great in my New Belgium globe glass. Copper, clear, decent amount of head and some subtle lacing. A steady stream of small bubbles rising to the top.

S: Sticky caramel, wet grains, brown sugar. Actually not that bad.

T: A bit of a metallic twang, but a nice sweet and sticky caramel malt flavor. Reminds me of those caramel flavored rice cakes. Very nutty too. A bit of a 'dirt' like hop note at the end.

M: That metallic twang kind of detracts from the drinkability, but its not offensive enough to not finish if a bottle was in front of me.

O: A good beer from Coors.
