This "beer" is so sad.

If I've said it once, I've said it a thousand times.

"When I want beer, I drink beer. When I want water, I drink water. But why would somebody want to drink watered down beer?"

So many people are wasting their life with this "beer."

Coors Light is definitely one of the better widely available American Lagers. Appearance is a straw yellow with nothing else to it, And the smell is that of an average lager. But the taste is a nice change from the normal, It's almost like they actually take their time making this stuff. Yes I said it, An American Lager that actually has some time put into it! Imagine that!. I don't get why it has such a bad rep on here. The mouthfeel is nice as well with the usual lager fizziness. And I was surprised at the low alcohol content since I was actually buzzing off of 4 bottles of the stuff. So the next time you're about to pick up that 6 pack of Bud Light or any other basic cheap lager, Grab this instead.

Had a bunch of these leftover in the fridge from friends and whatnot. Poured this into a shaker pint.

A: Extremely pale yellow bordering on clear, lots of carbonation. Two finger white head lasts about a minute, no lacing.

S: Little to no aroma here. What is there is a faint metallic, light hops, light pale malts.

T: Bready, slightly sweet, cooked veggies, grain husk, faintest hops, super dry finish,

M: Extremely light and watery, highly carbed, drinkability is endless.

O: I find this beer extremely refreshing on a hot day, thats about all its got goin for it however.

A 450ml aluminium bottle with a BB of June 2012. ABV is stated as 4.5%. Picked up cheap from a nearby off-licence. Brewed in the UK by Molson-Coors at Burton-on-Trent.

Poured into a straight pint glass. A crystal-clear pale straw colour with plentiful carbonation. Forms a large head of brilliant white foam that lasts for a minute or two before dissipating. Aroma - what aroma? There really is nothing there, just a whisper of light malt and stewed hops.

Tastes of hardly anything. Faint light malt and stewed hops, with hints of corn and overcooked veg. Slightly sweet. Mouthfeel is crisp, light and watery, with prickly carbonation. A little dry. Not much aftertaste.

Piss. So bland it might as well be water. There's nothing technically wrong with this, but it's still one of the worst beers I've ever reviewed. So lacking in character that it sullies the very concept of beer. Vile - save money, drink H2O!

18 oz bottle poured into a pilsner glass at fridge temperature.

L - Pale straw (bordering on clear) color with a 2.5-finger fizzy white head that dissipates quickly with no sign of lacing. A good amount of bubbles but less than I was expecting.

S - Grainy and corn aromas jump out. There’s maybe a tiny hint of floral hops but it’s mostly that adjunct light lager smell that everyone knows.

T - Very watery. A little bit of grain and corn come out at the finish, but this should hardly be able to be called a beer.

F - Very light-bodied with tons of fizzy carbonation and a crisp mouthfeel and finish. Refreshing, but again, this is hardly beer. Another reviewer said it best - it’s like seltzer water.

O - I don’t have anything against adjunct lagers. They have a time and place. However, this one just doesn’t do it for me. There’s almost nothing here to even review. It’s like water in every category - even the color. One thing that saves it from being a straight 1 is that it’s so much like water that it’s completely inoffensive. There’s nothing “bad” here, but that’s just because there’s nothing here at all.
