This is really the only other beer I like besides Guinness. Not gonna go into flavor we all know what coors is like. I drank 12 of these at the pay lake by myself without getting drunk. Didn't have a hangover either. I give it a 5 because this is my macro beer of choice.

ive drank 500 gallons, will drink 500 gallons more. this is a beer to cut your teeth on, to be a teenager with, to be outdoors with, to drink and drink and drink on long summer days with no water and find a decent forgiveness in the morning. this is the beer of smokey and the bandit, smokey runnin coolers of coors across old man river mississippi so all we east least can get a taste of the Rockies. this is the beer of Golden Colorado, Shelby County Tennessee, the Shenandoah Valley in Virginia, and every raging prom party worth a bucket of spit and a Kid Rock song. I drink it when the mountains turn BLUE.

I'm gonna be honest, there's not much more to life than sippin' on a Coors. The electric blue color that the can embraces when cold as the Rocky Mountains is not to be taken lightly: it's an invitation. However, she's a seductive mistress, as each savory and refreshing sip (or gulp) only serves to tantalize and bring the experience closer to climax. Fortunately, unlike some experiences, there's no waiting time in between rounds. And that's to everyone's benefit, as you'll need more than one to really appreciate the love that goes into each individual, hand-crafted can. Mr. Coors, you've got a fan in me.

My favorite Beer. Perfect, goes down smooth, perfect cold. Awesome taste. Doesn't make stomach upset. My favorite beer hands down!!!! The wide mouth makes every sip enjoyable.

Cans are just as good as the bottles. Obviously the cans are cheaper but the bottles are a great price as well!

When the mountains are blue, its Time to drink!!!

I enjoy this brew. Its the only thing i have bought with my own money as far as alcohol. My friend introduced me to the silver bullet one day. I thought it was a bit stronger than bud light. At this point, I was kind of wanting to try stronger beers. So it was a refreshing change, while still being inoffensive. Now, i drank it today after having some the other day. It has no flavor to speak of. Its kind of sweet though. Its nothing really memorable. Poured into glass gently so there would be no foam. The foam really makes me sick to my stomach. So light beer is really good because of that. pale golden liquid. Never actually seen it out of the bottle till today. Its smell is kind of sweet. Its inoffensive. I can't really taste anything other than a slight beer taste. Very forgettable. Its good for me to drink when i get thirsty. I would buy it again. Best beer I drink all the time

Coors light is my go to beer. It's cheap and it's refreshing. As many people have said prior to me - it is what it is. When it comes to Bud Light, Miller Lite, and Coors Light, Coors Light wins hands down in my book.

Can't believe how many people are not happy with this beer. Great initial taste; color is a bit lacking but who cares? Very good beer overall. Kills other beers in it's class -- Bud, Miller, and Yuengling. A shame more bars don't stock it.

Although a much-aligned beer, it is the preferred drink of most of my neighbors. To bash it is un-American. It is refreshing and low ABV, with a subtle malty sweetness that cleanses the palate and rehydrates. Readily available, I keep it in my fridge at all times as the standard light beer accepted by all guests and requested by most contractors. Why is it so popular? Because it is low ABV, tastes great, and is the standard for canned beer. Think football, baseball and any other social activity. I prefer to drink/gulp it in the 16 ounce can, so that I can enjoy the refreshing taste without seeing what I am drinking. Sure there are more flavorful beers, but are there more widely accepted beers? No.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 5

Appearance: Burned impression of straw; in a clear keg cup or a red keg cup, the expectation is fulfilled; crystal clear; typical domestic light lager head; uninspiring to the connoisseur; liquid gold to the tailgater

Smell: Pleasantly outdoorsy despite the expectation of metallic overtones; clean rice as opposed to oppressive corn

Taste: Pure and clean; it simply tastes like American lager; light

Mouthfeel: Like a party in your mouth - a party where many people are leaving and many people are arriving at the same time

Drinkability: Impeccable, quantity-wise

This beer is an American Light beer and I review it as such.

To me drinkability is one of the biggest things that is important, I like beer and I like to be able to drink more than 1 without feeling full.

Coors Light never dissapoints, always has a great taste and is very drinkable. It is my go to beer for events, tailgating, parties, or just grilling on a hot summer day.

A great beer, however beer snobs should avoid.

What's really to be a hater about? Decent brew for a tailgate or beach. Damn, put this in a ice cold cooler at 29 degrees and damn cheap. Always seems to be a winner. Big brew in Puerto Rico. Draft taste bottle or can. You can put down a twelver with out feeling bloated. Nothing more to see here- just keep moving along!

The appearance is a light straw color. The head is medium sized, but dissolves quickly into a small ring around the glass.

The smell is very faint. It consists of strong corn adjunct, white bread, some sweetness.

As for the taste, it's watery, with sweet corn adjunct and then white breadiness into the aftertaste.

The mouthfeel is watery, with lots of carbonation.

The finish is dry, crisp, and refreshing.

Appearance- A brown bottle. The Silver Bullet baby.

Smell- very musty, but isn't a turn off to this beer.

Taste- Great standard taste for any beer, but the taste can get bad after around beer number 3.

Mouthfeel- big mouth. Easy to down.

Drinkability- One of the most drinkable beers out there. If you're at a get together, I'd recommend this. If you're on a special occasion, avoid this beer. (Superbowls, and parties are perfect for this beer)

The smell reminds me of good times I had and the taste is rather unique for a light beer. Great clarity and very smooth on the palate. Overall, a great cheaper beer.

Coors Light is a very respectable beer. It is hands-down the most refreshing beer in the world. You cannot compare a light beer like this to a more potent beer, say like a Franziskaner, because they are in completely different classes. So shut up. It also does not taste like urine. Why do you know what urine tastes like anyway?

The color is light yellow. It is a light beer so what do you want it to look like? The smell smells like beer should smell. Taste is delicious. The mouthfeel is cold and refreshing, just as advertised. It is ice cold just like the hearts of all of the people here who bash this excellent beer.

Overall I think Coors Light is just fantastic. It is a beer for whenever you want to just sit around with friends and drink a ton of beer. Won't fill you up. Won't let you down. You need to drink about 25 to get truly drink, but it's enough that each beer will keep the buzz going. As refreshing as they come.

Had a coldie on tap, in the usual ballpark plastic cup, with a fully loaded hot dog at the Angels game yesterday. Delicious. Nothing like a beer and a dog at a ballgame, and neither one disappointed me, nor did the Halos. This is just a pleasant beer that I enjoy drinking.

Pours a nice golden color with thick head that quickly diminishes to less than a lace. Slightl less corn adjunct aroma than most and I sense a little malt. Surprised on the flavor, way more than most adjunct lagers, let all light her beers. Sense a little hops also. By far the best light beer I've had.

Very dinkable light beer. Pours light yellow in color, very nice head with a crisp taste. The kinda beer you can drink doing yard work or sittting around by the pool with freinds. Has to be one of my favorite light beers. Flows smooth and easy. Wake up the next day with a smile even after many. Hang over free!!

Smells of cereal and grain. If the place I go to doesn't have great beer this is always my go too beer. Goes down smooth, overall a good beer for the mass market.

This is definitely one of the great lite beers out there on the market today. Certainly a session beer, where the low alcohol percentage and few calories lets you drink up without feeling too full or bloated. I prefer it out of the bottle... Whenever I get it on tap it seems very watered-down and bland. Taste-wise, I've tried better lite beers, but this is certainly up there with some of the best. It is a definite classic and can be enjoyed with just about any food-pairing, especially good to be enjoyed with appetizers.

I love craft beer more than the next guy. More. I'm from the Portland metro area. I am blessed with countless microbreweries from Seattle to PDX. However, I love coors light. It's amazing. How could you down on such a smooth beer. Love is all I have for it.

Okay, Okay, this beer is like water. But I still like it! It pours a very light yellow with lots of carbonation. This beer really does not have too much taste to speak of but I love to drink this beer with Mexican or Chinese food because it does not have a strong taste. It is a very light beer that does not fill you up when you are eating food. This is my go to beer when I just want to drink something light with food. So, ok, it is not a great beer by any means, but it is just fine for an American Macro Light Lager. Chow down and drink up! A great beer to eat food with when you don't care about matching food with the perfect beer. A great alternative to soda. :)

I think this beer is another example of beer snobs rating a beer low because it doesn't match what their idea of a good beer is. Now, I love a good beer, but this beer is pretty damn good. I have never had a beer as drinkable as this one, it goes down nice and easy. I will admit it doesn't look or smell all that exceptional, but the taste is crisp and clean and this is incredibly drinkable. Silver bullet all the way.

A. A typical clear light beer look. Decent carbonation. Very thin head

S. Has a mix of hop and grain smell

T. Very easy to drink beer. Good for parties

M. Carbonation kicks in. Crisp. Noticable sticky after taste

D. Its a light beer. Drink all you want. Like i said good for parties. Pour it for pong.

Final Thoughts: Its a fairly cheap beer. Good for parties. Easy to drink. I enjoy it

I love beer and I drink it every day. At (age) 62, carbs are an important factor. High carbs = high weight gain. Must keep the carbs at or below 5.5g/beer. I want to be treated right with a beer's alcohol content too, which is just as important to me as any other attribute. Coors Light is always an excellent choice for me. The aroma, flavor, after burp, 4.2 ABV and at 5g carbs Coors Light is a great beer. A straight shot about every three beers or so makes up for the slightly lower alcohol content. I love the flavor the aluminum can adds, but the flavor of Coors Light from the bottle is fine too. Adolf Coors (who became a proud American) went to a lot of trouble to find the right water with which to brew a great beer and I think he did. I think he'd be proud of Coors Light.
