Pours a pale translucent yellow. Thinner head that dissipates quickly. No lacing. Strong cereal and corn smell. Tastes about the same. Thin oily mouthfeel that keeps the beer from finishing in a nice, clear cut snap. Lingers slightly on the palate, but doesn't get any better with time. Drink really cold, or it will taste a little funky. Overall, a less-than-delightful light lager.

I like Coors regular lager. However, this is not so good.

I can't shit on this one. It's okay, it does what it advertises. Smells and tastes like sweet veggies and corn. If you don't have a brew and someone offers you this one, just make sure you drink it cold.

Best of the big brand light beers. Overly derided on this site, Coors Light has its place - family bbqs, your old man's fridge, under $2 at happy hour, ice cold next to chicken wings. Don't shit on it because it's not meant to be a stand-alone sip-and-savor experience. Frost the glass, and let the cereal, corn and wet barley profile combine to smooth away any edges, bring a little sweetness and not interrupt whatever the hell you're doing alongside it. Taste worsens as it warms so drink it cold and drink it at a brisk pace.

The most bland of the light beers that I have tasted. Really just malt flavored carbonated water. Could not finish the bottle, as it warmed the taste became unbearable to me.

The beer is clear with a good amount of carbonation but not much of a head at all. It smells like almost nothing. Very light sweetness and that's about it. The taste is also very minor, just a hint of corn and sweetness. Thee beer is well carbonated and crisp.

In a blind taste test between Coors Light, Miller Lite, and, Bud Light at a recent bottle share, Coors Light was the clear winning with some actual taste including a hint of hop bitterness. Miller came in second on because Bud Light had no apparent flavor or body. Bud LIght is by far the worst.

Possibly one of the worst beers in America. Drank a 6 pack this evening (leftovers from a party). Pours with no head. First taste is sugar sweet. No finish other than that. Awful.
