Well, it is a staple beer for those of us currently in college. Cheap, light, drinkable and easy to pound; this is a beer to drink in a party scenario.

Overly carbonated with a light watery taste, albeit crisp and refreshing. Head. Wait, whats that? This beer doesn't really have one...

Avoid this beer, unless you want to have something easy to drink in large quantities (although I can think of several better beers to do that with), or you're in college.

used to like this beer. now that my beer universe has expanded...i'll never order it again. was at a bar in Chicago today, decided to get a coors light draft...mistake. pale yellow watery look, skunky bland semi-beer flavor. i'd love to go into more colorful detail but I'll stop there. if you're considering ordering a coors light next time you're at a bar, slap yourself and then ask for something from three floyds...given you're within their distribution territory.

I find it strange, even unconscionably ludicrous, that nearly all reviewers judge this beer subjectively, not objectively.

Coors Light is not a pretentious beer. It is crisp, clean and low in cals and carbs. It is NOT meant to be judged against HIGH END micro-brews and the ilk. This is swill and should ONLY be judged against other swill. I mean, if it is 110F in the Mojave Desert, are you really going to be tilting back a "Super Oatmeal Irish Imported Double-XX Peat Bogging Super Stout Bock" or some such ridiculous thing? NO. You'd be doubled over puking through your gross over grown unkempt beard and fat belly.

Coors Light is what it is; a fairly refreshing, light, mildly fizzy beer. Among the choices you have, it compares nicely in all categories to all of them. Miller Lite has a bit better taste, but who knows where that come from? Kangaroo piss?

If it's gonna push 110F outside and the ice chest needs to be pushed to its max, I recommend Coors Light. The cost and the ease of drinking will not bug you.

The bottles are THE BEST. The cans do a good job and that is what I typically drink. From a TAP? Whoa.. I recommend you go gag yourself for a while over a roadkill opossum because that is NOT how this beer was designed to be served. It is a light pilsner and should come from a single serving container.
