Piss water yellow. About as clear and see through as a beer can get. Smells of yeast and bad morning breath. Hints of corn accentuate the beer. Tastes like a sparkling water and goes down just as easy. Not much to say other then it leaves a terrible after taste in the mouth. Highly carbonated cold filtered brew. Like other light beers it's as close to water as you can get.

= This may have been the first beer I've ever had. Needless to say I rarely drink these anymore. I do think Coors Light is one of the best out of all the light beers. The only time these are appropriate are if you plan on having a binge worthy party. Other than that this beer will never enter my home.

Wow, honestly it tastes like a hybrid combination of pee, and water. It has no body, but if you are going out on game day its nice because you can have 20 and still not feel it.

Ha, ha, ha. Okay, seriously?
So currently, I am going through a project of rating mass produced beer (and beer like beverages). I rated Bud Light recently, something I never drank before. I had Coors Light in my late teens and didn't like it. And here I go again.
The nose is of your average weasel piss variety, not quite as bad as Bud Light. The pour sounded like sparkling wine, with a display of a most awful colour.
The taste is an absolute joke. At least Bud Light had no flavour. This thing has something lingering in the background and I think it may be corn, but it's merely a distraction from the enjoyment of water.
If any of you drink this on a regular basis, just know that you are not drinking beer. There is nothing here to justify calling this drink a beer. And as far as I am concerned, this product should not be allowed to be marketed as beer. To say nothing about something as moronic as Cold Certified™ Technology. The focus should be on what is inside the can, not outside.
Shame on Coors for producing this and then asking money for it.

Growing up in a predominantly country town, this was a staple beer for many, and drank mostly by those who donned tight wranglers and cowboy hats and boots. Why, I don't know. Perhaps because you can down this like water easily on a hot day and it's inexpensive. I drank many a coors light until I discovered that yes,there is better. Much better.

Pours a standard straw yellow. Smell is almost non existent. Taste is a watered down subtle metallic grain. Mouthfeel is a thin carbonation.Finish is metallic,but clean.

The best description I've heard of this beer was as follows:

"If a nickel could urinate, it would urinate coors light"

Served from bottle into glass. Pours straw in color, practically transparent with obvious streams of energetic bubbles and a thin suggestion of a pure white head. Very weak almost non existent aroma of light grain, like dry feed corn or old wheat. No hop aroma detectable. Flavor is also weak and again mostly light grain, with a hint of apple juice. No hop flavor detectable. Very low bitterness and a slightly sweet finish. Watery mouthfeel with super high carbonation. Overall this beer is definitely an American adjunct lager: unoffensive aroma and flavor, superbly drinkable and thoroughly boring. But hey, it was free.

look: 2 | smell: 2.25 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Look - Clear straw color. No head or lacing to speak of.

Smell - A faint sweetness but not much else. Slight metallic or acidic aroma, hard to describe.

Taste - Very mild corn grits, vague sweetness and little to no bitterness. No barley or hop flavors to pick up.

Feel - Thin and watery with ample carbonation. Very easy to drink.

Overall - One of the most popular for the style but one of the worst in my opinion.
