A: poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass, honey amber colored with a medium sized white head that dissipates leaving slight lacing, very clear

S: lots of grain smells, cereal, flour, biscuits

T: flavors of caramel, malt, grain, slight woody flavor

M: thinner but refreshing, neutral aftertaste

O: a pretty good American lager, don't shy away just because it is a Coors product, cool bottle but some idiot made it a twist top

Raul was on the beat and saw this at the spot and decided, why not?

Poured it in the nonic, but it wasn't smellin' bubonic. Nah, not that sticky icky stuff. Taste? Yeah, it was aite. This is definitely an Adjunct, but Raul respect it like Little Caesar hot n ready special: you know you're not going to get the best, but hot dawg it ain't bad! (for what it is). And what it is, is a palatable Adjunct. (Looks like dehydrated urine) but it's a palatable Adjunct.

This beer is a great "anytime" beer. Though it has a slight "skunky" smell to it, its taste does not reflect that.

It is pretty highly carbonated and it's mouthfeel is light and thin. Upon a sip, the immediate flavor is sharp and slightly hoppy - almost a copper-flavored hop. It remains bitter from start to finish, but the flavor smooths through a hint of grassiness and ends on a grainy wheat flavor - which happens to be an attribute of most of my favorite beers.

Like another reviewer said, I think many people are rating this lower than it deserves simply because it is made by Coors. Of generic, run of the mill, canned beers, Coors ranks low for me. Maybe just about Natty Ice. This doesn't even taste reminiscent of typical Coors and it is worth a shot. I definitely stand with the Brothers rather than user average on this one.

Poured a straw-amber color into a glass with a ~1/3" head. Smells of malts and the cheap smell of the typical macrobrew.

Tastes alright. it tastes grainy upfront then leaving a fun amount of bitterness until well after I swallow the sip. Slightly malty but overall bitter. This beer tastes better than I expected it to after smelling it.

Beer feels crisp and light.

This beer is OK. I'm not to sure when I would actually want to drink this beer or what food I would pair it with, and so on. It is a microbrew take on macrobrew ingredients that accomplishes its goals better than other premium macrobrews (e.g. Bud black crown, Becks sapphire) that taste like the only thing they have done is raised the ABV.

Is this really an adjunct, or is this an American Pale Lager? If it's truly made with adjunct grains, then it's the best adjunct I've ever had by far.

I feel like people are giving this poor reviews just because it's Coors. This is a really good beer. Not quite Full Sail Session, but damn close.
