Best light lager out there. Drink almost frozen from the can with a koozie to keep it cold and you’re good to go.

Maybe I'm missing something but I don't think the low score is justified if we go with the strict definition of a light lager; unless light lager is meant to be a poor beer? Not sure.

But this beer meets all the standards as per the requirement: Low alcohol at 4%- Check. Light (with corn overtones) - Check. Little or no hop/malt flavours - Check. It initially pours a nice lace that dissipates fast enough as well as a clear, pale straw color with limited aromas of any kind. Ok, it's not an artisanal-craft beer attempting to wow anyone but I reckon it's not the purpose of this beer. The purpose is to kick back, enjoy and listen to the ball game if you get my drift.

Still. I enjoy this beer. The quintessential summer beer during and after a BBQ/yardwork or work out.

I think I have to give it a better rating than most here.

I enjoy beers such as Dogfish Head 90 Minute IPA.....Arrogant Bastard Ale.......High quality Oatmeal Stouts. But I also am not above enjoying an ice cold Coors Light from time-to-time. After a few hours of yard work in 90+ degree heat, stick 3 or 4 of these in the freezer just until ice crystals start to form and it really hits the spot. I pick up a sixer about once a month or so. My favorite of all the light lagers by far.

Very light in color, aroma and taste. There is beer there somewhere. It is so light it is hard to call it offensive.
Very faint malts and a bit of sulfur in the taste. Minimal grassy hops. Light in body and mouth feel. High carbonation, dry finish.
Drink as cold as possible.

Pours a clear, pale, yellow color with about a finger and a half of white head that fades to a light layer on the top. Smell is lightly corn, cracker, and a tiny bit of earthiness to it. Flavor is corn, sweet malt, tiny amount of bitterness and a little earth towards the finish. Medium light body, fairly crisp, clean finish. Decent light lager, I think there are better ones out there but one I wouldn't turn down at a party.

Had this beer in the can so I don't know if the bottled version is better. This is a very generic beer to my taste. Crisp and smooth with no yeast notes and no fruitiness. At most, you mainly taste malt. I believe this beer would make a great social beer because it has nothing that stands out about it, it's definitely not offensive in anyway. You could easily drink this beer while talking with friends. What I do enjoy about this beer is that it won't give you a headache or the sudden erge to sleep. Very drinkable but not my first choice.

Coors Light is a light/smooth beer that is good for parties and casual drinking. The taste has caramel notes to it and isn't foamy. Would recommend!

24 ounce can into lager glass, best before 6/18/2018. Pours crystal clear pale golden yellow color with a 1 finger fairly dense and fluffy white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin spotty lace cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Good appearance. Aromas of cracker, corn, white bread, light biscuit dough, and mild herbal/grassy earthiness. A bit of fruity aromas, but not overwhelming. Okay aromas with pale malt/corn and light earthy hop notes; with decent strength. Taste of cracker, corn, white bread, light biscuit dough, and light herbal/grassy earthiness. Light herbal, grassy, spicy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of cracker, corn, white bread, light biscuit dough/pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Solid robustness of pale malt/corn and light earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and zero astringent flavors after the finish. Moderately crisp/clean finishing. Nicely clean on lager flavors, with minimal corn/fruity notes present. Light-moderate increasing dryness from bitterness and carbonation. Medium-high carbonation and light body; with a very smooth, moderately bready/grainy, and fairly sticky mouthfeel that is okay. Pretty thin/watery, but not too bland of a finish. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 4.2%. Overall this is a decent light adjunct lager. All around solid robustness of pale malt/corn and light earthy hop flavors; very smooth, crisp, clean, and refreshing to drink. Clean pale malt/grains and solid hop presence for the style. Not too heavy on the corn. A fairly enjoyable offering, well made for a light beer.

Pours a light golden coloration with a medium, foamy head that recedes quickly. Smells quite watery, with a light sweetness, mild citrus and slightly grainy note. The sweetness does not have a malty quality to it though, and seems to rather come from the adjuncts. Taste follows the nose: watery, slightly sweet and grainy with just a tiny hint of citrus and an unpleasant metallic note. Lacks almost any hoppy or malty notes except for very light citrus and grain. Also lacks any kind of bitterness, a finish or aftertaste. Very watery body with high carbonation. Mouthfeel is kind of soft and surprisingly nice though. By far the worst non-infected "beer" I've ever had.
