Appearance: Crystal clear copper in color with some yellow at the edges. Some thin lacing, average to minimal head retention and volume. Nice tiny bubbles.

Nose: Metallic and simple. Slight lemon. A little musty/dusty.

Taste: Dry and crispy at first which mellows well into sweet maltiness. Some crushed aspirin at the end.

Third shift 6pk bottles $6.99(OH)

I grabbed this because it was cheap and it claimed to an award winner. (like all of you curiosity)

12 oz brown bottle poured into pint glass. no freshest by date, however a yellow date is printed on the neck and rubs off very easy.

pours a light amber. lighter than i expected for an award winner. doesn't leave much head or lacing unless you put some air between the bottle and your glass. even then lots of head not much lacing. (too light bodied maybe)

the smell is fairly weak. i smell some corn, maybe some malted hops. i really don't smell much.

again i don't really taste much. it don't taste bad but it don't have much going on either. at first it tastes a little malty then a tiny touch of hops on the finish.

i would have to agree the mouth feel is the best part of this beer. it feels OK. its light bodied but not watery. the carbonation is good. i wish they put as much attention into the entire brew, not just the mouth feel.

overall i would consider this an american red/amber lager, not a Vienna lager. it looks o.k. it has no smell. it tastes adjunctant. mouth feel is best. but most of all where are the noble hops? i don't know what Coors master brewers were thinking, at least blue moon was pretty good.
