Poured into a shaker pint glass.

The beer is a clear light golden color. A white fizzy head recedes to a wisp. No lacing. The aroma is sweet, slightly metallic. Faint corn or rice adjuncts. The taste is equally sweet with nothing but adjuncts coming through. The mouthfeel is light and carbonated.

Overall, my favorite of the three main BMC offerings. Only good for hot summer days while mowing, or maybe while camping. Maybe.

Another mega brewing lager that taste just like the last... Actually.. you let this one sit in the can long enough it will start to taste like metal... Which might be an upgrade. The color is a nice clear light yellow. Smell flavor and mouth feel are all disgusting... However... if your at a tail gate... I would rather drink beer-water then a stout... I just hope these mega brewers create a good beer... Wishful thinking?

Bright in appearance with a rich gold color. A very clean bright white frothy head. Head retention is short. Very small perle to the carbonation.

Mildly blunted on the nose with moderate cabbage and mushroom notes. Corn and low malt notes. No real sense of hops on the nose, although some light citrus notes in the background of the nose. Fairly four square in style.

Soft and rather flabby on the palate. Carbonation is there to support the beer, but is gentle on the palate. Hops are light, but make more of an appearance on the palate than they do on the nose. Alcohol and hops are balanced by the malt. Gentle sweet malt notes on the front end with corn and rice notes on the back end.

A little creamy on the initial mouthfeel with a slick finish. Overall finish on the beer is very short and empty. A slightly watery aftertaste.

A little too much DMS, even with the acceptance in the category. Would like to see a little more finish as well. Still, rather pleasant and very clean in style.

Poured from a 12 oz can into a handglass.

A: Medium golden hue. Pours a 2 finger, bubbly, white head, quickly dissipates. Rising effervescence continues throughout... you really can't outdrink it. No real lacing.

S: Hay, rubber, and hops.

T: Tastes like it smells. Very light malt grains, hay, very slight hop, and a bit of some synthetic sweetness that judging from the rest of the components was not really intended to be there.

M: Light and bready. Slight, pungent hop lingers on the palate.

D: Session.

Atmosphere is okay. Solid head, no real lacing. Nose is very light grain, hop, combo. Light flavor components consisting of hay, malt, hops, and something sweet in the background. Overall, this is serviceable at best.

12 oz. bottle, with best by date reading August 19, 2013. My first encounter with a bottle of regular Coors, expectations are low, but I'm keeping an open mind.

Poured into a Firestone Walker pint glass.

A - Pours two fingers of fluffy fizzy bubbly head that we know all too well, recedes quickly into nothingness. Body is a pale straw color, mostly very clear with some bubbles rising to the top.

S - Smell is of faint corn kernel, dusty malts, and water.

T - Taste is comprised of watery corn husk grains, some brisk carbonation, a bit of noticeable alcohol fumes, and wet cardboard. You're not missing much here; I should have probably left this one in the bottle.

M - Feel is crisp, carbonated, & clean, with some wet cardboard / corn husk flavor lingering.

Overall, you aren't missing out on much if you haven't tried this beer yet. As is the case with most cheap, sh**ty American adjunct lagers, if you've had one, you've had most of them. And this bottle of Coors is no exception. I think it is safe to say at this point, that if I had to choose, I would probably opt for the Coors Light or some other "light" adjunct lager. As others have said before me, another tick from the bottom of the barrel with plenty more to go.

Coors ---2/5.
