From the 12 fl. oz. can dated Oct 10, 2016. Sampled on October 9, 23016. 24 hours to go! I can't believe I have not rated this one so It thought it might be a nice way to celebrate 2,900 BA ratings.

Golden yellow pour under a big and long lasting white foamy head.

The aroma reeks of corn syrup, toasted breaded malt, and a clean enough grassy hop character. The corn syrup is a bit much.

Light body, which is to be expected for the style.

T^he taste is a step above the aroma with the same syrupy malt character but a slightly more noticeable grainy and sweet character. Clean finish.

It is what it is and getting harder to come by in my area,

Best of the Coors brands and much better tha Bud, Miller, and the rest of the National Brands. Not going to rate this by the five factors, like GOOD BEER. But it's a good, cheap, everyday beer.

Pretty good example of the style. Much better than the regular Coors, and one of my favorites in the 'cheap crappy beer'-category. Has a satisfying malt undertone, with some sweet grassy after-flavors.

Canned Colorado Sunshine.

I've consumed enough Coors products over the years to have a basis for opinion and this one's pick of the litter. Coors Banquet with more stuffing, just a richer, rounder, more fully flavored product. Not a Munich Helles or anything like that but if you're in the mood for Coors this is the one to get. Shame it isn't very widely distributed.

I wouldn't travel across State lines to get it but I would go across town in the rain.

(12 oz can, poured into my Chouffe tulip)

L: crystal-clear, light-orange amber liquid... tight sudsy foam that fizzles away immediately, but somewhat slowly... no head retention or lace

S: mildly toasty, pale malt emphasis with a pleasant intensity of yeast and alcohol esters, maybe even some faint hop aroma... overall, a fine beery smell

T: relatively full malt presence with an overlying dry, grassy flavor, subtle fruity-sweet edge, and cracker-y, granola tinged finish... nearly bone dry, very mellow aftertaste with a touch of the alcohol and esters lingering behind

F: light to light-medium body - think soft, carbonated mineral water... mellow fizziness (best drunk from can if you want more zap! on your palate, which I often prefer with these beers)... the follow through and finish doesn't leave you terribly refreshed, though it's nice how dry it is

O: one could almost but not quite mistake this for a German macro lager... nice yeast profile and malt flavor (perhaps the glass enhanced these qualities?)... I'd be curious to compare this side-by-side with Miller High Life and Bud

Yes it is golden, smells like your average non-light macro beer but then it gets interesting..a bit. This is my first time trying this and I didn't expect much but wanted to give it a go because it is incredibly hot outside 90's here in the mid-west. I always want a beer that I can take out on my balcony and drink and enjoy however due to the heat that makes it somewhat difficult because it warms so quickly without a good insulated drinking container. So with temps in the 90's even during the early evening, I'll try 3 ice-cubes. This is a good test to see of the flavor of the beer stands strong as opposed to becoming watered down and whimpy. This is where this Extra Gold made me smile and want another 30 pack for some $17 and change.

This beer will wet your whistle and stay cold with the help of 3 ice-cubes without becoming watered and whimpy before you get towards the bottom 3rd of your beer glass. And even at that bottom 3rd, there still was some carbonation left which delighted me and provided a nice clean finish. Pairs well with a nice fat 2015 Gurkha Seduction cigar too! In-fact I'm heading in for a 2nd glass right now. So for this macro beer (I'm a craft beer snob) I'm giving this an over-all 4 score for these reasons I've given above.

If you are looking for something to refresh and provide hydration that tastes like a normal beer even with a few ice-cubes...Coors Extra Gold Lager is a pleasant surprise. I'll be visiting my local Jungle Jim's for another 30 pak very soon. But when it gets cooler I'll be shopping for my beloved craft beers again where the weather allows me more time to enjoy a nice slow drink.

Honestly not much different from the standard Coors Banquet! The taste, appearance, aroma, and mouthful are all similar! Would not purchase this for it is a little more expensive than the Coors Banquet and theres very little difference if any at all! I believe its crisp clean refreshing not a bad adjunct lager its kosher like all coors products!

Clear dark golden color, nice two finger white fluffy head that faded pretty quickly, not much in the way of lacing. Smelled of wet straw and corn, with just a tinge of sweetness. The flavor was pretty much mostly corn, and a touch of bitterness, not all bad though. The mouthfeel was thin to medium, with lots of carbonation. This is not a bad beer for the price, perfect for hunting trips and camping.

God awful beer. Don't let these positive reviews trick you. Horrible macro graininess feel, awful taste. I was hoping this beer might be a sleeper for when your broke, damn was I wrong. Just spend a few more bucks and get Yuengling or even bud
