This is promoted as a light beer, thus, this rating is based on that.
Okay, it's organic and only four ingredients used; barley malt, hops, yeast and water. Kudos for keeping it to that and not adding corn syrup, rice or anything else.
Very light in color. Nose is light but has a nice light bouquet, far better than any other light beer I've ever come across.
Light flavor, but balanced between the malt and hops. Some residual bitterness.
I'm 67, and I had Coors "back in the day."
IMO, this beer tastes how Coors used to taste; light, delicate, refreshing, good.
If you like light beer, or maybe you have to back off the higher alcohol beers for a reason, by all means, try Coors Pure. I think it's not only a very good light beer, but a good beer period!

Coors Brewing Co. "Coors Pure Light Beer"
24 fl. oz. can coded "JUN2121 08 A1060022015"

Notes via stream of consciousness: This can is from the Miller Coors-Albany Brewery in Georgia. Going organic is a new and interesting spin on light beer and I'm guessing it will work. There's no adjunct either, it's 100% barley, and you've got to love that. It's got 96 calories with 3.5g of carbs per 12 oz. serving. The ABV is 3.8%. It's poured a clear golden body beneath a finger's width of bright white foam. It's fizzy and sounds like a soda pop but it's still holding, at least for the moment. The aroma offers up a clean, sweetish malt with just a hint of non-specific hops in the background. It's a little like a sweetish bread or cake. The head has completely disappeared at this point and I'm a little surprised that I don't see that many bubbles rising from below. The flavor is exactly as the aroma suggests it will be. I really appreciate the sweetish and grainy malt but it remains fairly unexciting - technically, as an American light beer it should be. They could have thrown more hops at it but then it would be a different thing altogether, and I'm not sure that's what the consumers they're targeting are looking for. Besides, hops cost money. They're the most expensive and perishable ingredient in brewing, and they take up room in the cold box! The hops that are there remain non-specific although if I was pressed I'd go with floral, grassy, and very mildly citrusy. I'm not finding much bitterness and it's probably around 5 IBUs. Still, it finishes mainly dry. Some maltiness remains but it's not sweet, it's more like a mouthfeel thing. It's light-medium in body and delicately bristling on the tongue but otherwise smooth. The carbonation level is not that high which partially explains the lack of head retention and subsequent lacing (no lace was left at all). In the end I'm fairly impressed with this because of the malt component.

Rating To Style is something a lot of people need to get a grip on. It's a very pale , extra light pale lager. For "those" people, it's not a stout, not an ipa.
And in the category it executes its purpose.
24 oz. can for 2.39 is about right at the gas station. Pours a light gold of course, and little white head fades fast. Smelled good, and tasted the same. Probably Coors best beer. It was better than expected, and not even ice cold, or in a glass. This stadium beer ain't meant for glass. Or a plastic cup.
Better than the silver bullet I think. My doctor told me to reduce sugar and beer, so I grabbed one of these 24 oz. cans and slammed it . Not great as craft lager, but it's exactly what it advertised to be: cheap, light low- cal beer. How can you knock that, unless you're a buffoon who expected anything different than a very light cheap Coors beer. It's all they make.

24 FL. OZ. can
Served in a pilsner glass

This beer pours pale yellow and is topped with several inches of off white head that leaves no lacing.

Not much aroma. I get some grain and grass notes.

Barely any flavor. I guess I get a little grain.

Light bodied with a watery mouthfeel

I'd rather drink an NA beer than this shit. If you are worried about calories and want no taste in a beverage stick to water.

Sample from 24 oz can into pint glass. Pours a thick pillowy white head, color is pale straw. Aroma is mild with some toasted malt and a hint of hops. Mouthfeel is light and crisp with a dry finish. Flavor has some cracker and bready malt with a subtle but noticeable hop note. Overall: more flavorful than the average light beer.

look: 2 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.5
Appearance:
Pale straw color, clear, no head retention to speak of.

Aroma:
Faint malt and cereal grains, not unpleasant, very light spicy hops.

Flavor:
Bland, very light grainy flavor, not any discernable hops except for a very faint spicy noble hop tinge.

Mouthfeel:
Very watery and fizzy. Same as a hard seltzer.

Overall:
Bland alcohol delivery vehicle. Flavors are good but so weak it's a joke.

Got a nice $5 off deal on this from Target. Poured into a pint glass...exceptionally fizzy with a massive foam that dissipates into a light lacing of tiny bubbles. Pale, very translucent yellow. Smell is not bad. Bread and malt - with the faintest hint of some sort of hops. Taste is inoffensive and i suppose that's all you can ask for on this one. Really almost like a beer-flavored seltzer water. Nice on a scorching hot day like today.

Very disappointing since I paid $3.39 for a 24 oz can. All I can say is it tastes slightly better than M. Ultra.
It’s light gold with a white head and almost no smell.
It tastes, well let me phrase it differently, it’s kinda like beer. It is one of the most watery, carbonated liquids, masquerading as a beer I’ve ever had. It’s another bullshit corporate tactic that scams all the suckers who fall for all the “organic” crap. I’m embarrassed that I bought it. But hey, if you luv M. Ultra this stuff should rock your world.
Otherwise avoid.

Fro9m a 24 oz. can dated stamped Jul0521 and a whole bunch of other numbers. Sampled June 12, 2021.

It looks the part so I will give it credit for that. Golden in color with a quick lived white fizzy head.

The aroma is pretty straight forward with barley grain characters and a slight floral sensation.

Light body.

Not much in the taste as far as a craft beer goes. Some sweet graininess and a mild floral finish. But generally this has very little going on with it. Crisp, clean. Obviously this is the Coors take on Michelob Gold. To me they are both about the same.

24oz can poured into pint glass. JUN0721 printed on bottom of can. That's today, so unless it was born today, maybe this is the drink before date? Cutting it close.

Appearance - Pours absolutely massive medium-density white head, with decent to low retention, and virtually no lacing or stick to speak of. Pale gold body and only very slightly hazy, which is a still little odd for the style. Not strictly filtered, maybe? 4

Smell - Light and clean. The faint notes are musky, mealy, grainy corn. 4.5

Taste - Clean, fresh, grainy. Very light. Offers relatively little complexity, but no flaws to speak of. 4.5

Mouthfeel - Refreshing though it has a tiny bit of lingering astringency that's easily overlooked. 4.5

Overall - No off-characters. Getting some definite German lager vibes... I mean, it does seemingly follow the Reinheitsgebot with its ingredients list after all. Actually fairly solid in the style. Very drinkable, very sessionable. Not really a tasting beer though. 4.5

Very light color, smells of watered down Coors light with more of a distinct corn smell. Not a bad beer, but very light and the foamy head is nice solid inch but last only about 30 seconds. Taste is of corn/malts it’s not a bad taste at all but I wouldn’t re try this beer.
