It's better than Coors Light. I'll give it that. Pours a paler than piss yellow with a head that starts off two fingers and within two minutes turns to soap suds. Smells grainy, with a hint of bread. Tastes a little bit like sourdough, which is quite surprising. Not that it tastes like sourdough, but that it has any taste at all. Mouthfeel is thin, water and overcarbonated. If it were cheap at a bar, I'd drink it over the standard fair. But if I'm at a bar, chances are, I'm drinking double ryes.

Tallboy can picked up at The Beer Store; served ice cold. This is the first time in living memory I've ever seen this stuff being sold in Canada, and since I've generally heard positive things about it (a rare occurrence with this oft-maligned style), I figured I'd give it a shot.

Pours a standard golden-yellow colour, bright in hue and with perfect clarity, generating about one finger's width of fizzy, white head that quickly recedes. Yeah, it looks like a pale lager, alright - and the aroma is very prototypical, as well. It's a little grainy, with corny notes and a mild whiff of wet hay; not bad for the style.

I was a little skeptical of this at first, but as far as adjunct lagers go it's actually a rather respectable offering. Pale grain malts and an underlying adjunct vibe provide the majority of the flavour, with accents of lemon zest and grass coming through toward the finish. Slightly sweet aftertaste that doesn't linger. Light-bodied, with appropriate carbonation levels that keep it feeling crisp without lurching into 'bloaty' territory. Extremely drinkable, at least when it's nice and cold - I'm not feeling adventurous enough to let this warm up.

Final Grade: 3.32, a B-. Coors Banquet Beer is easily one of the better macro adjunct lagers available on the market right now. While I have little doubt that the usual BA set will pooh-pooh this brew as a matter of habit, the fact remains that it is still a highly quaffable, moderately tasty pale lager that I would never turn down (as opposed to Coors Light, which you would need to pay me to consume). I'd take this over most of the comparable lagers available in this province - certainly long before I'd consider picking up a Budweiser, Labatt Blue, or most other 'premium' (snort) brands.
