Pours a thin head over a pale amber body. Retains a little frothy ring. Nothing in the way of lace.

Smells sweet and bready. Light grassiness. Overall very weak nose.

The taste is of sweet malt with a little molasses. It gets a little bready with a bit of spice and rye and ends with spice, bread and grass.

The mouthfeel is light-medium bodied. It washes down quick and easy as any beverage by this company.

I thought this was pretty good for Coors. Fuller taste but pretty sweet, bit of chocolate or caramel, with a sweet apricot or date sort of tone. Bit of alcohol and tends to get thin. Inexpensive relatively but a good find in typical convenience stores.

Saw so many commercials for this that I had to try it. Nothing much to report here. Good session beer. Standard amber lager. Very sweet and malty. But also seems very light for an amber. Out of the six pack I had there were inconsistencies among the bottles. Some were very good. Some had a rather strong presence of dimethyl for an amber.
