Poured from a 12oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a deep gold color, with a short white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains light caramelized malts, lager yeast, adjuncts and a faint touch of hops.

T: The taste starts out with some malt & adjunct sweetness. Then a very mild hops presence comes in. The malt character is a bit heavier than most beers in the style and brings some balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet.

M: A little crisp and a little smooth, light-to-medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: A bit flavorful, goes down ok, not too filling, mild kick, decent representation of style, considering the style it’s not too bad but there are other similar beers that I would choose first.

Served on-tap at Village Pourhouse in Hoboken, NJ

A: Pours a crystal clear honey yellow in color with some moderate amounts of visible carbonation and dark golden yellow highlights. The beer has a finger tall foamy white head that slowly reduces to a very thin film covering the majority of the surface of the beer with a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light to moderate aroma of malts with grain and corn adjuncts - richer in aroma than Coors or Coors Light and there is almost a slight hint of honey sweetness.

T: Upfront there are some moderate flavors of malts with both corn and grain adjuncts (thought the corn is slightly stronger) and some light hints of toast. Light flavors of grassy and herbal hops that impart a light to moderate amount of bitterness which fades pretty quickly.

M: On the lighter side of medium bodied with moderate to heavy amounts of visible carbonation. Crisp.

O: When I found this on tap at a place that did not have a lot of other interesting brews currently available, I said what the heck and decided to try it - expectations were pretty low but this is much better than the traditional BMC offerings and I could see myself getting it again when at a place that has a more limited craft tap list.

Dark amber in the tall Stella glass with nice lacing. Decent foam and spritzy mouthfeel. Thin body.

Has that Euro Lager smell, not a good way to start. However, it's a pleasant mouthful of malt and a little hoppy burn. There is just something kind of chemical about this. It's a little winey. Unfortunately, for an Adjunct Lager it's unquestionably better than the run of the dog pound. So I have to give it a good score for that. Otherwise, it's a sweet thing that tastes of additives.

From the 12 oz bottle (one of the silliest designs ever) bought in San Francisco.

First had: on tap at Pinocchio's, Media, PA

Strangely not too bad for a Coors product.

Poured a clear golden color with a thin fizzy head; no real retention or lacing to speak of. Sweetness of pale malts in the nose, light leafy hops, spent grains. Toasted grains in the taste with an unexpected honey sweetness, backed by light leafy hops as detected in the aroma. Light body, easily drinkable, but overall lacking in flavor and complexity, as any basic adjunct lager would be. Still not bad, all things considered.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Pours out a lightly hazed, honey-hued body with nearly two fingers worth of rich foam that fades but never disappears.

Smell: Honey accents ahead of the pale maltiness trailed by notes of leafy green, citrusy, spicy hops.

Taste: Honey-brushed maltiness with a thin hint of lightly toasted grain. Moderately sweet throughout. Lemony, leafy, herbal hops with ample bitterness to balance it out, or so I thought, as the sweetness makes a last-minute rebound before the finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation.

Overall: It'll do in a pinch!

I had this at the Texas Roadhouse in York, served chilled in a pint.

The color is an apricot shade with light haze and thin white cap, retention is good. The smell is very gentle with mild malt sweetness and subtle floral hop aspects with a light spice ester. The feel is good with mild sweetness crisp medium bodied moderate carbonation and semi-dry finish.

I like the flavor while it has a slight pils sweetness it also has an herbal hop flavor which adds to the malt profile with a dry finish it is a pretty drinkable lager

Sample bottle from the brewery, they are launching draft only for now ... not sure if they are ever going to bottle / can it.

Bubbly sea foam head, perfectly clear golden color. Fresh graininess leans towards a more rustic dried grass aroma with a kiss of hops in the back. Refreshing crisp bite enhances the graininess, a little rough around the edges. Hop bitterness is sharp and cuts through most of the malt. On the dry side and relatively clean.

Good drinking, reminds me of some of the retro-beers that are all the rage right now. That is a big hint to the MillerCoors marketing department ... tall boy cans, crack into the hipster crowd and this beer might actually make it.

From 6/4/10 notes. Had on tap at Saloon in DC.

a - golden amber color one finger flully white head

s - Smells of light citrus, faded hops.

t - Taste of bread malty and some faded citrus hops.

m - Medium body and high carbonation.

d - Not much going on in this beer. Some light citrus hops that are faded but not much else. Not bad for a Coors product but wouldn't look to have again.

Pours a clear golden color with a short lived white head. Nose is fairly typical macro lager aroma of sweet grain/cereal, light esters, and minimal hops. A slight corn note is present. The flavor is sweet grain, minimal biscuit qualities, and no hops to speak of. A touch watery, some yeast and mild fruit esters. That's pretty much it. Nothing wrong with it, just nothing all that great about it.

Served in a Batch 19 tulip pint glass at Wool Street.

Never thought I'd actually see this brew out by me, but then Serendipity came along and randomly dropped it in my lap at a local watering hole. It pours a clear russet-ish straw (this may have just been the weird light in the bar...) topped by a finger of white foam. The nose comprises light wheat, light corn (straight from the cob, baby), and mineral water. The taste brings things up a bit, with notes of wheat, caramelized pilsner malts (damn homebrewing...), flowers, light grass, and a twinge of grapefruit peel in the back. The body is a hefty-leaning light, with a light moderate carbonation and a crisp finish. Overall, I think this is the best Coors product I've had in a long time. I really hope it stays on in the area, so that I can have a nice alternative to the usual BMC nonsense where craft is not abundant. Not all that bad, I gotta tell ya.

On draft at Miller Park. Brewers vs. Nationals. Great seats right behind first base.

The beer is hazy and light brown with a half inch of light khaki head. The aroma is adjunct sweetness, sweet caramel malt. Smells macro all the way. The taste is just shitty. There's really no other way to say it. I try to rate to style, and I don't expect an adjunct lager to have the complexity of a gueze or big imperial stout. That said, this beer tastes like syrup, artificial sweeteners, fake fruity crap. There is no integrity in this product. This beer was designed for commercial purposes only. Gross on so many levels. Avoid.

Found this on tap at the Peddlers Daughter in Nashua.
Pours a deep golden color that borders on red with a decent white head that displays moderate retention and lace. Smell is sweet grainy bready malt with a smattering of spicy earthy hops to counter the malt. Taste is quite sweet, almost too sweet with honey like bready malt. Bits of corn spice and earth try to cut through the sweetness and almost succeed. Medium body and carbonation with a sweet sticky mouthfeel. Not bad for an adjunct lager and I would certainly pick this one over most others.
