Nothing really stands out as a weakness. For a macro beer, it's smooth tasting, consistent, and doesn't appear to be overly carbonated. This (along with others from time to time) has been in my 'fridge fairly regularly for the past 15 + years. Great hot weather beer.

I’ve had more Coors Lights than I want to admit, but rarely their Banquet beer...it’s alright I suppose.

Not the worse beer I’ve had, but certainly one of the more unimaginable ones I’ve partaken. Crystal clear, classic yellow coloration, a quickly dissipating head with no lacing leads to a brew with no real scent to describe. I did find the mouthfeel light though a tad watery and the taste better than most macros. Overall, it’s ok. Cheap with some flavor, it’s good to have around for visitors who aren’t craft beer aficionados to share with.

One of the best out of the basic American beers. If you want more flavor than coors light with the same drinkability, a good beer to sit down with a six pack and enjoy.

My go-to cheap beer, along with Miller High Life. I can't say much for the flavor, but I appreciate the fact I can chug it since it's basically watered down beer. It helps knowing it's from the Rocky Mountains, since you can't go wrong with the Rockies. Plus, it's refreshing on a hot day-- and you can get drunk for cheap. Thank you Colorado!

Coors Banquet pours a pale color, with a quickly dissipating head. Grainy aroma. Flavor is grainy and chemically. Good feel, not too overpowering. Overall, for what it is, its not the worst.

Not a train wreck. Its better than Budweiser but not better than Pabst. So there ya go. Good swilling, mass produced, heavily marketed beer for amateurs and those who don't know better.. Okay for after yard work or when thirsty. That's about it. Oh yeah....its cheap too. So that's a plus.....right?

Decent AAL but certainly not head and shoulders above all others, as I somewhat expected. Pale yellow color, fizzy and good initial head that quickly faded. Just a little spotty lingering lacing. Smells faintly of corn and malt. Tastes of corn, grain, biscuit, caramel and malt. A little too sweet and with a little sticky "AAL" aftertaste. Mild mouthfeel, good carbonation.

It’s very basic and has that malty flavor with a touch of floral hops. Easy drinking and sessionable, I hear Sam Elliot’s voice as I drink this. Not my go to beer, but good for the masses.

I’m rating it on the style, and as an macro-brewed AAL goes, its the best of the bunch IMHO. Best when drank ice-cold on a hot summer day.

This wasn’t really on my Beer-Dar until my much moar educateder brother in law said “well, when I drink an AAL, I drink Coors.” Yes it’s an AAL, easy to drink and enjoy. There is a “sweetness” to it... that’s not really the word but there is a flavor that is more pronounced than with others of the family. Will drink again, would recommend.

Drinkable and crushable. Has a corny flavor that can be slightly offputting. Overall a great beer to have on hand. Delicious and bready. Not the best of the style but nothing to turn down. CHEERS!

Coors pours like a typical lager. Straw yellow. The head is off white and there is a decent amount of lacing. As usual I did not detect much of a aroma. The taste is light with just a hint of sweetness. The mouth feel is smooth and creamy. There is a slight aftertaste that does not linger. Over all Coors is a good beer and enjoyable.

Please do not invite me to this banquet. A slightly better version than Coors Light, with a bit more flavor. I guess I would voluntarily drink one of these, but would not feel good about myself afterwards.

Not something you'd grab for a tasting session, but for on the cheap and during these hot days, it's a decent go to that doesn't taste horrible and feels refreshing.

24 Oz Can poured into glass
Look - typical straw pale yellow colored. Lots of carbonation. Initially thick foam head fades quickly with no lacing
Smell - Corn and yeast. Not much else. Slightly musty or actually smells like a barn. Smells sweet
Taste - grainy with the corn adjunct flavor. Very slight bite from hops but its not much at all. Very light and watery (tastes like mountain spring water) which makes it very drinkable. Fairly sweet though which is a bit of a turn off for me.

This isn't a beer to write a book about, it's solid for its style but not very tasty or complex. It works to refresh and cool down on a hot day. I would like to try this on draft because I've only had it from a can.
I will give this an overall grade of C+
