Appearance - Other than little to no head and carbonation, which is preferred by us, it is absolute perfect color and consistency when seen in the glass. Don't drink out of bottle.

Smell no outstanding smells, offensive or otherwise. I smell sweeteend beer.

Taste - Perfectly crisp, slightly too sweet for me but not for my wife. Could drink multiples.

Mouth feel - light for a lager - goes down easy - maybe one dimensional, can be gulped.
Overall

Light crisp refreshing, goes down easy. Not imposing. very tasty - would buy again.

Poured into a shaker pint glass.

A clear amber body sits under a fizzy off-white head. It recedes to minimal film, and little or no lacing is present. The brew smells faintly sweet of caramel malts. An even fainter hop presence is noted. The beer tastes sweet with grains and malts, and slightly metallic. *ding ding ding* There's your macro sign. Mouthfeel is light.

Overall, I could session this all day because of it's lightness. It's a macro amber, that's that.

A dark amber beer usually a good sign of rich taste in amber beers, Unfortunately not so in this case only a strong bitter after taste. A thick foam head produced when poured into frosted mug The label claims it is a gold medal award winner it definitely does live up to that promise.

The Third Street is an easy going beer. The beer pours a lighter clear amber with thin if any head that is not lacing. The smell is mostly malt/bread. The taste is a nice balance of bittering hops and malt. The mouthfeel is lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall this is a nice sessionable beer...but nothing noteworthy.

Drank straight from the can, so no real comment on appearance. Scent was mostly fruity lager esters and some sweet malt. Not horrible. Pretty appetizing actually. Taste was fruity with grain husk, malt sweetness and possible maize adjunct with some moderate hop bitterness. Not that bad, fairly standard and mild, but inoffensive and pleasant. Mouthfeel was light bodied with high carbonation. Pretty standard macro mouthfeel, not horrible, drinkable. Overall this was a standard beer. It wasn't bad, it was rather good, but it did nothing to really stand out. Still, that's not too bad for a Coors product.
