For the amount of commercials for this beer and for the amount of people who still drink this, I rate this as the worst beer of all time. There is absolutely nothing to see or drink here. Putrid is not strong enough.

Coors Light is the "go to" when buying cheap beer most of the time for my friends and I. For a light lager, it excels in most areas. The taste is great and extremely light, while still doing it's job to give you a cool buzz. Coors stays colder than most light lagers which puts it a step ahead when coming to party's and/or tailgates. And who isn't a fan of the can? The chrome finish with the "mountain thermometer" is a cool touch, creating an attractive design. Great for Beer Pong.

16 oz. can poured into nonic
(best by Feb. 5, 2018 printed on bottom of can)

L: clear yellow-gold topped by thin head of white foam, about 1/4-inch tall, that disappears quickly; keeps thin collar of foam; minimal activity in glass; no sticking or lacing

S: grain, stale grain, light sweetness, house paint

T: stale grain, medicinal note; as it warms, light cracker-malt sweetness adds some flavor ... grain notes also increase in a good way, much more flavor, corn, maize

F: super light, super carbonated

O: ice cold it's pretty awful, just a watered down corn husk with a medicinal flavor note thrown in, but as it warms it starts to taste a bit more like a full American adjunct lager; it never gets all the way, and there are other light beers I like better, but this one is at least passable; I'd only drink this as a last resort, but I would drink it

Water-beer. If this is the only choice, drink wine.

If you are really hot and sweaty, it is very refreshing (but so is spring water) and that is about the only thing i can say about it. Even for the big mass market jobbies, it isn't very good. It has almost no flavor. Below average even for the big beers.

Tastes like bitter water, but good bitter water. I give the feel rating a 4 only because after 4 it starts to feel good. My favorite kind of H2O. But far from my favorite kind of beer.

There isn’t much of a difference, if any - between Coors Light and Miller Lite. It’s not the worst beer ever, but it’s nowhere close to a great beer either.

I really don't like this beer. It tastes like bad water.

Pours a very pale, clear, light golden color. Head was 1 finger, but retention was poor. No lacing on the glass.
Nose is minimal, but a slight malt aroma.
Taste - well, not much, to be honest. There's really nothing to say about it. Nothing.
Feel is watery. Slight carbonation feel.
Overall - if you want to drink a lot of beer on the cheap, and don't care about flavor, this is for you. That isn't me. I used to drink this when younger, and liked it. Now that I'm older, it just doesn't do it for me.
