Sampled a 12ounce bottle on 11/16/13 and chilled down to 36F in my beer cooler and poured into a glass. Been a long time since I had one of these.

Pours a straw-yellow in color with a 1+-finger foamy head that doesn't hang around too long. Some light spotty lacing was seen. The aroma is of just some grain and corn but nothing else really. The taste is a little 'watery' with just a slight sweet aftertaste. High carbonation. Overall, a decent brew for during the warmer months.

Pours a light golden color, lighter than most adjunct lagers, head is white and dissipates quickly. Smell is faint, banana bread and grass notes predominate. Slightly malty taste, with hints of banana. The powerful carbonation functions like a palate cleanser, clearing most tastes. Mouthfeel is weak with some malty after taste.

473ml can purchased from LCBO for $2.35 CDN. Served cold into a pint glass.

Appearance - Pale piss yellow color, and only 1/2 finger of head poured even with a semi-aggressive pour, which dissipated almost instantly. Limited bubbles present in the glass as well. Not impressive.

Smell - Adjuncts, faint sweetness from maybe corn, and a slight vegetative smell. Other than that there's a whole bunch of nothing.

Taste - Watery, wet and bland with a faint sweet aftertaste. Nothing off putting and slight graininess on the finish. Not good but far from terrible.

Mouthfeel - Dry finish that seems to be there just for the sake of being there. Sufficiently wet up front and high carbonation.

Overall - Mediocre, but better than some AAL options. Not sure why I picked this up, I think a friend of mine was saying how good it was. For what it is it's drinkable but nothing that BA's will be even close to impressed with.

Aroma is malts/adjunct sweetness and mild tartness. The flavor is sweetish malts, light fruit and a tart finish. One of the few macros that are decent.

it is what it is. Although I do not like the fact that Coors is anti-union or anti-gay. When I go to a party that supplies its own beer, I'm happy its not Miller Lite (ugh WTF, is that even ).

Drank from can, Don't even waste your glasses for it.
Smells like corn.
Smoother than most, nice bubbles. Thank God, can you imagine if it was thick with that shit.

Poured from can into a pint glass

Appearance – The beer pours a medium golden color with a one finger pure white head. The head fades rather rapidly leaving a light level of lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma is almost none existent but consists mainly of a sweeter corny smell and a bit of green apple fruitiness.

Taste – The taste begins with a bready and very corny taste. These flavors create the base of the beer but are joined by some other flavors of a papery nature as well as a bit of grain and green apple. In the end somewhat off grainy, corny, and paper taste is left on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average side in terms of thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is on the higher side. Both are rather appropriate for the style and make for a easy drinking brew.

Overall –Not really the best brew out there and even though it is rather cheap, there are much better beers at a similar price that one could substitute for this.
