Poured out into a normal glass, head is very crackly and disappears fast. Very clear yellow colour, not much to smell in the beer very middle of the road. Taste is very clean and easy to down, on my second 6pack and the beer still tastes refreshing and good. Not recommended if you don't like the "lawn mower style beers"

Yes, this is an American adjunct but It is my favorite of them. Very smooth, drinkable and for the price....what the heck. I use it to supplement my supply of expensive craft beers. I would disagree with "poor". I know there's so much better out there IF you pay the price and are loaded. No pun intended.

This is my favorite beer out of the ''big three''. It's not worlds better but it is slightly better in my opinion but still just your average run of the mill beer.

This is absolutely vile.

The look is a very light golden colour 2.5/5

The smell is light and slighlty grainy 1.5/5

As far as the limited taste that it does possess goes, its not good. Extremely watery, with a grainy finish that turned me right off the beer. 1/5

Feel is light, and very drinkable. Has a pleasant amount of carbonation. 2.5/5

Overall: 1.5/5
But 5/5, would not buy again. (unless you need something to get hammered with)

I'm not a fan of macro adjuncts but this was on sale for $6 for 12 pack (ha!) so why not...

Surprisingly better than expected. Definitely a better choice than many other adjunct lagers, but certainly not craft beer either.

Crystal clear gold liquid with little bubbles and a white head.

Slightly sweet, grassy aroma.

Clean flavor, a little sweet but not excessively so. Not much character to speak of but thankfully no weird cabbage flavors.

FInish is on the sweet side.

For what it is, this isn't bad. Not a great beer but worth every penny that I paid for it . . . and a million times better than Coors Light, Miller Light, Bud Light, etc.

This is the single worst thing I have ever put into my mouth...and I used to eat dog food as a kid. If this is really what they served at banquets, people would stop accomplishing anything to avoid the cruel and unusual punishment that is Coors Banquet. Hitler shot himself because Coors Banquet was the only thing left to drink in his bunker. Look=5 because they disguised this pile of shit with a nice looking gold can. There are so many better cheap beer options than Coors so I'm hoping I never have to drink it again. Thank you.

I know that the American Adjunct Lager is not exactly considered an art form among beer enthusiasts, but for what it is, I consider the Coors Banquet beer to be a shining example. Sophisticated though it may not be, to me this beer is described as simply drinkable and pleasant. Especially considering the price, you can't go wrong with it.

Out of the 1936-style "stubby" bottle, it goes down like water and has a humble malt character that seems to have a particularly American ring. A quotidian workhorse!

I don't care what you beer snobs say. This is good American beer! Sweet and malty just like I like! Love the stubby bottles. Must be ice cold to enjoy at its fullest. To me this tastes good. that's it!

Clear dark straw color with few activity. Slightly foamy white 2-3 finger sparkling head, lasting around 5 minutes, and providing weak lacing. Flavors of sweet grains, corn, syrup, barley, herbal spices. Slick and smooth medium body with overly prickly carbonation. Light strength finish, soft wheat with thick sugary grains, some wet leafy hops, slight skunk and grass, Highly accessible. Good freshness. Low density watery flavors, feels crappy and too simple. Overall bad quality craft, slightly better than most other macros.

Consumed at the brewery in Golden, Colorado, it's another animal! Very fresh "white bread" tones that are quite good. Again, however, the beer that is super fresh and never leaves the brewery simply is "better" than the can.

A - great golden yellow can. Obviously a significant amount of effort was put into the design. Didn't pour this one.
S - sweet bread and corn, almost no hop character
T - sweet bread and corn, little more hop bitterness on the taste (obviously)
M - light feel, alc completely covered, aftertaste light bread
O - its exactly what it's supposed to be.
