No idea where this was brewed: The UK or the US (or anywhere else on earth). 27th Sep 2013 I visit a local club for a charity auction and I spy this huge font with 'Coors Light' on it. Never seen it before as the bars I tend to use wouldn't sell this stuff.

I buy a half: and quite enjoyed it in a perverse sort of way!

Cold, refreshing and clean tasting (not much malt and hop flavour, but clean tasting). It's very pale urine in colour with a white head, at least my half-pint was.

Odourless and tasteless, yet not really bad, just not very beery. This ticks off one of the highest reviewed beers I'd never had before (the main reason I decided to have a glass). Heineken and Budweiser are my next bland lager targets!

Well, I needed something to dry hop so I could figure out what hops they are, and this was the best option from what I hear. I can definitely confirm that this beer is as cold as the Rockies thanks to the mountains on the bottle turning blue, so it's "super cold"!!!

Decent looking creamy head that is fairly small though, actually a bit of lacing too, super clear watery yellowish color.

Nose isn't as bad as I expected, very light pilsner malt, watery malt, a definite corn base and adjunct aroma but not really skunked, overall pretty light though.

Taste is there but barely, just a bit of a straw grainy pilsner malt, then into the obvious corn base and adjunct fake malt substitution like, hint of unhappy sulfury lager, and faint skunk. Finish is dryish, light skunk and unhappy lager sulfur, touch of corn lingering.

Mouth is practically non existent, light carb too.

Overall not as bad as I expected, although still pretty light and lackluster but that's what an American adjunct lager is supposed to be.

This review is for the Molson Brewed variety, not the watered down American stuff.

Ok, this beer isn't going to win any awards for quality or taste, but for whatever reason I sure do love this light beer.

Colour is very light and golden.

Smell is very faint, and sweet.

Taste is a little bland, but sweet. No aftertaste.

Lots of carbonation.

This beer is best served very cold. It goes down crisp and clean.

Will drink this beer frequently throughout the year.

Pours a pale golden, with fair head of white foam that dissipates quickly. No lace here.

Aroma is grains, malts, and adjunct corn.

Taste mild and malty with a touch of spiciness somehow. Body is, as has been said time and time again, watery. Flavor is definitely sweeter than a traditional lager, with no trace of hops.

Average at best (for a light beer). Very mild, average and bland.
