Very unique and interesting bottle that appears to have the shape of a barrel molded into the neck. Poured a nice light copper that was bright at the bottom of the glass, but appeared just a little hazy just under the head which was quick to dissipate and did not last long. The smell was the familiar tang of American lager; tart, sour metallic tang mixed with sweet malts and barely noticeable hops. The mouthfeel is much thicker than any American style lager; sweet malt and maize dominate with some hop bitterness coming near the end; it feels almost under-carbonated compared to the "sting" that's expected with an adjunct lager.
All in all this is an enjoyable beer that tastes like something from a craft brewery. Not perfect, and it would be difficult to session a beer like this because of its tendency to become cloyingly sweet and thick in the mouth, but still something I would crave and enjoy drinking occasionally. A lot of pretentious snobs comment here that it tastes like a Coors product. They're full of baloney. If you put it in a micro-brew bottle and served it to them, they would not know the difference. If you see some at your local store, try it and see for yourself.

12 oz bottle. Pours a crystal-clear amber body with nearly an inch of off white head. Smells grainy and biscuity. Tastes biscuity, bready, and somewhat nutty with just a touch of grass and citrus to balance. Tastes good and is quite drinkable. Balanced and flavorful.

Coor's is quite capable of brewing good beer, too bad we waited so long. I highly recommend this one if you can find it cheaper than the 9.99 per six pack I paid, at this price point I'll grab something else. It's an exellent full flavored Lager -it says ALE on the side label?-
Why doesn't Coors just can this beer in 16oz only and retail them 9.99 it would be different.
Just as tasty as Anchor Steam Beer! nice but I bet this brand won't last long....

Found a single of this, had it once before on tap at the MillerCoors HQ bar of all places.
Bright gold with a few stray trails of tiny rising bubbles. Thin layer of white foam on the surface, sparse bit of drippy lace on the opposite side of the glass. Thin broken veil of skim after first couple sips.

Bready buttered biscuit aroma, a little bit of yeast, mild and pleasant.

Lightly sweet malts, vaguely grassy noble hops, with a bitter carbonic bite in the end. Some astringency, gassy and light bodied. It's ok, fairly drinkable but ultimately nothing special. Wouldn't refuse at a party, but wouldn't buy it with so many better craft lagers in the market.

It pours a golden color with a frothy white head. Smells like your average American macro beer, with some corn and adjunct sweetness. Now the taste is where it gets interesting, up front I noticed a nice lemongrass bitterness along with the adjunct flavor, but the hoppy taste really stands out and isn't very noticeable in the aroma so it's a surprise when you taste it. It is light bodied with moderate carbonation and a dry finish. This beer kind ofcaught me off guard, It's way better than I thought, It looks and smells like any old beer but the flavor really makes up for it. I could actually see myself drinking this more often.

On tap at the Village Tavern, in Geneseo, NY.

Pours a golden yellow color. One inch head, not much lacing at all.

Smells like grain, malt, honey, and grass.

The taste is very similar- nice to have actual flavor in an adjunct Coors product. Honey malt sweetness, with some grassy hop flavors, almost akin to pilsner like hop flavor, but not as strong.

Light bodied, well carbonated, easily drinkable.

Probably Coors' best product, including the million different Blue Moon variants. Was pleasantly surprised with this one.
