Extra Gold Lager has a thick, white, marshmallow-type head, a clear, deep gold, bubbly appearance, and lots of lacing rings left on the glass. The aroma is of sweet & sour roasted barley malt and other grains. Taste is of sweet, funky grain, a touch of hops, and it has a moderate roastiness. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Extra Gold Lager finishes crisp, clean, refreshing, dry, and highly drinkable. Overall, this just might be the best American-style adjunct lager on the market! Oh, yeah!

This beer has no right to be as good as it is. It is $10 per case...priced in the "garbage" range. It is a coors product. It comes in a gold can. The stage is set for some seriously nasty macro swill...and then you taste it. This beer is remarkably flavorful for what it is. It has a slight malt presence and a clean finish. It is EXTREMELY drinkable. It has become my go-to cheap beer for hosting parties or when I'm low on cash.

Poured into a shaker pint glass.

The beer is extra gold, literally. It has a nice light copper color to it with slowly rising bubbles. A fizzy white head dissipates quickly to a breath of bubbles. No lacing.

The beer smells slightly metallic with a sweet malt presence and some rich bready grains.

The beer starts off with a touch of the typical metallic adjunct lager notes. The body is composed of toasted grains, sweet malts, and barley. The finish is a touch bitter from the hops that adds balance.

The mouthfeel is light and carbonated.

Overall, this is my #1 camping beer when I go to Colorado. I think it's a great tasting AAL for the price point.
