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.

Coors has so much more flavor than any other macro beer. The bros like miller high life and PBR better than coors! They gave Budweiser an 80! Coors is a great everyday beer and saddened that no one likes it. Mild cooked cabbage? All in all coors is a good beer.

Can: Poured a golden color lager with a medium bubbly white head with minimal retention and some light lacing. Aroma of light adjunct notes with light sweet notes. Taste is quite bland with light sweet adjunct notes that are noticeable. Body is light with good carbonation. Nothing shocking here and probably better then Coors Light but still incredibly bland at the end of the day.

12 oz can
A: Vigorous pour into a pint glass. One finger of fizzy head that quickly receded to a surface foam partially covering surface. As glass proceeds, leaves a small amount of lacing. Light carbonation. Pale straw color.
S: Not much here, some sweetness and some bread.
T: About the same as the smell with a little added tartness like green apples. Finished crisp and refreshing.
M: Light bodied. Light carbonation. A little tingly on the tongue.
O: This is one of the best American Adjunct Lagers I know of. Its certainly ok. Nothing is really off with this beer. A good beer for what it is and is very drinkable in quantity. With 5 percent ABV, its a good backyard BBQ beer and one good for camping other other outdoor activities. Coors Light sucks but this Banquet beer is ok for what it is and certainly beats Miller, Budwiser, etc. Its a good beer to drink with people who do not appreciate craft beer when you are doing the buying. ;)
