What can you really say about this stuff. It's pretty much an adjunct lager like Bud, Miller, etc. Straw color, hell of pale, corn smell and very very light, pours with light carbonation and a head that disappears pretty quick. It is pretty close to water (though it has nothing on, say, Busch Light in this category.) It qualifies as beer, though. Some kind of beer anyway.

Coors is worth buying for the price alone. I can get a six-pack of tallboys for five dollars. It's also extremely inoffensive. Since it's so light on the tongue and the tastebuds, I can't say I hate it or anything like that despite the low score. I'd take Coors over an overpriced, similar-quality import like Heineken or Tsingtao any day. And while I do definitely appreciate "real beer", this is something that will get you drunk if you drink enough of it. Who can argue with that?

Goes well with burgers, chicken wings, fried squid rolls.

This poured a straw yellow coloring with considerable carbonation throughout the body. The head was immensely fizzy and it flittered away in seconds.

The scent was mind boggling as I detected toasted corn but then a yeasty bubblegum sweetness. Maybe it's just me but it was kind if nice.

I'm not sure what all the fuss is but if you like Toasted Corn Pop cereal than this is right up your alley. Toasted Corn sweetness is all over the tongue and it's not bad at all.

The feel is rather dry, slightly high in the carbonation scale but very easy on the stomach.

For the style this is rather good and in my opinion does not get enough credit for an American Adjunct.
