From notes 9/7/13: Pours a medium straw producing 2 fingers of white, short-lived, foamy head that leaves only a few streaks and motes of lacing. Aroma is cereal grain, yeast and some faint lemony and honey hints. Taste is sweet adjunct grains, cereal, sourdough bread, lemon and a low level of grassy hops. Finishes peppery, bready, sweet with a weak bitterness, all of which linger to become the aftertaste. Mouthfeel is light bodied, moderate carbonation, peppery bite on the front of the tongue.

Stellar for a non-craft brew. Take it for what it is; a mass-produced big-brand beer, and it excels at that role. In my opinion, it is crisper, cleaner, and tastes and smells better than any other Bud/Busch/Miller etc. product. Severely underrated for what it actually is. Great malty taste and smooth finish.

Hard to knock this brew. It’s definitely a filler between more premium beers, but it’s smooth, crisp and refreshing none the less.

Light body for a full aal. Does taste much better cold when drank in hot weather. Distinct flavor that's consistent, but not a taste I rate highly. Better AALs are available.

The corn taste is there, but I am not sure if I am detecting any corn syrup. I have to try this beer again & let it warm up a bit but for now Cheers! C

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 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.

This is a great premium lager and far outweighs its lighter cousin. I will hand it to Coors Miller on this one, this is on par with Hamms which has some similar reminders for me. This is a simple beer yet complex in malty taste and a sweet finish.

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.
