Not sure why people still purchase beer like this. I can make it myself a lot cheaper by soaking a slice of bread in a glass of tap-water until it dissolves then adding a splash of moonshine to give it that alcohol.

The flavor would be just about the same....except maybe a little better if you used fresh bread. Coors "liquid dinner rolls" light definitely tastes like the bread they soaked in their Rocky Mountain water was stale.

My softball team decided to go out to the bar after we got destroyed, and the beer special was Coors Light. All I have to say is it is as bad as I remember it and was not worth the dollar we paid for them. I basically had one just to pretend I was not a snob, but boy did I fail, when I could barely drink it.

It pours very light in the glass with very little head and even less flavor and aroma. The only redeeming quality that it had was it was cold and wet (which are both wonderful after a ballgame).

If any of this undesirable shows up in your home, dump it down the drain or use it for something useful like boiling pasta, but do not drink.

Very pale gold color, medium head. Aroma is very slight and kind of grainy. Very little malts, nearly no hops. Very light taste, nearly no taste at all. IS it really beer? Mouthfeel is thin. Finish is clean Aftertaste is nearly neutral. Is this even beer? More like a beer flavored water.

Pours much like any other light lager. Pours a light color with a head that doesn't last (much like the other light lagers I've tried). Aroma is somewhat weird though, hard to describe. It's somewhat sweet and the taste is much of the same. Sweet at first and then it gives away to a corny background. I couldn't ever see myself drinking this. Probably the only difference I've noticed between this and the others in the same category.

You know, when a beer is unimpressive, it's unimpressive. Period.

I bought a bottle of beer. I opened a bottle of beer. I take a little water with a strange taste. I'm still looking for beer, non-existent !! I go to the store to return me to the euro scam !!!

What can I say about old faithful...

In a world of beer pong and tailgates where you'll drink a million beers over the course of 5 hours the Silver Bullet is the true King of Beers. It's never ending ability to provide small doses of alcohol in between good beers when you are getting piss yourself drunk is second to none. A little pricey for what you get, it should cost no more than natural ice but we are slaves to ad costs. Whether it is for a beer bong or a keg cup Coors light is the choice of Champions. Just don't think you are going to be savoring the last drops of this one.

Tastes like rocky mountain feces - straight from the sewers of Golden Colorado. Honestly, I can't believe Pete Coors has the balls to get on TV in the pristine Colorado mountains and pretend that this beer has anything to do with our State. He a fraud and so is this beer.

What the hell is with this beer?? Light almost waterlike color. Almost no smell. Smells like seltzer water, with a cooked veggie characteristic that transfers to the taste. Spritzy and watery with a strong sweet adjunct funk. After drinking some Munchen Helles all weekend and then drinking this, I had to dump it out. Instead of drinking this, just drink water.

Pretty much the worst beer ever. I used to be into bottom shelf adjunct lagers and such, but now I can really appreciate the taste of a real beer. On a hot day, after an honest day's work, I'd rather drink anything else but this. It will slow down your tastebuds to the point of cardiac arrest. Great from the beach (because it tastes like a mouthful of sand and salt water) to the slopes (because after having one, your day just goes downhill). Just thinking about it makes me vomit.

i dont usually bother reviewing beers that i despise, i dont really see the point, but i figured i should review at least one so i knew what it felt like to totally bash a beer . Here goes. This is a bad bad beer, colorless, flavorless odorless, much like carbon monoxide, you should try and avoid it at all costs. Mcro lagers usually benefit from being extremely cold, this one almost evaporates when extremely cold, and as it warms up , well lets just say it would be better if it did evaporate. Ill never understand why this beer is so popular, never.

typical mass-produced macrobeer. smeels and taste like water, corn and metal. only good for fraternity parties and in huge mugs at Midevil Times. Pours a very pale golden yellow color with very thin fizzy head that dissapeard immediately. Smells like the floor of a fraternity house blended with corn syrup. Gross.

I drank this beer one day during a nascar race, and It really had me questioning if i was drinking beer or water. There was no distinct smell or taste associated with this beer, I never really felt like i had a beer in my mouth, it was very watery with little carbination. after drinking 7 or 8 of these i didn't really feel like i had any beers in me at all. so I would have to say they change the name from coors light to water. becuase that's about all your drinking with this stuff.

Words cannot describe my utter dislike for this brew. If this were the only beer available at a party, I would rather not drink. The taste is awful, the appearance is as close to club soda as you can get, the mouthfeel is awfully sour, and drinkability next to impossible. A true macro crap beer.

Wow that new frost liner really works, I guess, I pour beer into a glass. However, first sip can't you taste the Rockie Montains? Well if you can your taste buds are way better then mine. The beer poured an unappealing light yellow that looks almost clear. The smell and taste where almost non-existant. The mouthfeel was light was felt like I was drinking spoiled water. I had to dump this beer because each sip made me cringe.

I got this can of beer at a party once. It's the standard story of how everybody gets suckered into getting a coors lite. You goto a friends house who has friends over and you assume they are all drinking good beer. Without looking around you get handed a can of beer and its coors lite. you don't want to seem like an elitist prick so you attempt to drink the can of over carbonated piss water.

appearance: can had blue mountains, which means it's as cold as the rockies. i assume this is to mask any flavor it may possibly have.

smell: well being as its so overcarbonated, i got a great smell as the carbonation found its way into my nose. it smelled like "that old beer smell" you know how beer smells after its been poured on your clothes and kept in the bottom of a laundry hamper for 3 days? that beer smell.

taste: beer flavored water is the best i can describe it. it was horrible, did i mention about the carbonation yet? it seemed like every drink i shook it up. horrible horrible stuff

mouthfeel: way over carbonated and felt like water. again, horrible stuff.

drinkability: none at all. after the third gulp i wanted to throw up again and again. it was just too much carbonation to drink. so disgusting, i would never drink that again.

What can i say its the worst beer i've ever had for me its the lowest of the lows and it saddens me for it to be one of the highest selling beers in the country. It pours a pale straw yellow. Tastes like water and some malt. Smells like water (nothing) and overall its just a beer made for college students.

Coors Light not good
Almost no head at all.
The body is light, almost clear.
The taste is that of South Dakota tap water.
I used it one time at a beer tasting to cleanse my tastebudds

"I do like the nice shiney can"

This is quite possible the worst beer I have ever had the privelage to partake of. This was drunk straight from the can, to save myself from the apperance! This smells like water, with some bad beer falvoring added into the mix, and it tastes the same as it smells! In fact this tastes even worse in cans than it does in bottles! This has no mouthfeel, as it is pure water, and the drinkability is low beacuse it just tastes bad. Why Bother. Hey I am young, and I am in college, but still, just quit smoking, or buy less cds and get some GOOD BEER, don't make your body drink this god awful brew!!!!
good day sirs!

This is proof positive that advertising does pay. Why else would anyone buy this crap??? It has a very watery taste with a hint of skunk. I think Odouls is closer to being beer than this..uh...beverage...(I almost called it a beer..oops!).

There was a saying I once heard, "Beer and Girls, When it's good it's good and when it's bad, well it's still ok." This guy must not have drank many Coors Lights. This is some aweful stuff. I'd give up beer if this was all there was. It tastes like pizza cardboard soaked in water and mixed with fruit loops. With a lot of metallic. If you drink 3 quickly then it doesn't taste as bad but beware it cause severe belly bloat. Also causes insane diarrhea the next day. Avoid this stuff

This is unfortunately what some friends and family think is beer, and whats more they serve it to company. Is it bad manors to bring your own whenever you visit. Coors has no flavor, its aroma is unimpressive as is its appearance. How anyone can drink this is beyond me. Give me an arrogant bastard any day now that's a real beer.

Probably the first beer I ever had, and I thought it was great...then I grew some taste buds and...

A - Can o slightly yellow water

S - nothing to report...

T - none...

M - Perfect for mowing the yard.

O - Cheap. Good on a hot day. Does not quite set the benchmark for the worst beer ever, but its close.

Water anyone? Just another utterly weak nearly flavorless light beer. Kind of like if you pack a glass to the top with ice cubes then drop in a shot or two of regular Coors and walk away long enough for the ice to melt. Ta-da, Coors Light. The only saving grace is there's really nothing to be offended by. Something would have to be in it in order for you to ask for something to take out of it.

BA tells you to always write something critically informative about a beer, so I will start with my thesis and then elaborate on it. Quite simply put, this is the worst beer I've ever tasted. It pours a terribly pale yellow with tons of rapidly receding foam head. The smell was mostly corn, as is the taste, which has so much starchy sweetness from whatever they put in it that it has actually succeeded in being the only beer that triggers my gag reflex. So why did i drink this? Because this is what gets served at house parties where people dont have lots of money and need beer to play some beiruit. Seeing as how this is the only beer that has consistently made me choke every time I drink it, I cannot give it more than a 1 for any single aspect of it. But hey, its cheap...
