12 oz bottle poured into a snifter.

Pours a copper color with a half finger of foam that dissipates quickly. Aroma is grainy, minerally, not much by way of hop or sweet malt aromas.

This beer has a strong crystal malt sweetness at first, with a very flat finish. Not much lingering flavor, and not much hop flavor comes through. There is nothing bad about this per se, it is just very basic and one dimensional.

This is basically a plain old amber beer with nothing else to differentiate it. Drinkable for sure, but there are much better beers to be had.

Bought a 6-pack of this at the grocery store liquor store because I noticed it was on sale. Drank from the bottle poured into my beer glass. Tried it both cold, and again when it warmed to room temperature. I really liked the appearance of this one- a rich, golden red. 1/2" head that dissipated very rapidly. Very very light lacing on the glass. The carbonation was decent, but almost too much for my taste. Very light smell- hard to pick it up, but I'd describe it as wheaty with a light caramel apple in the background. Taste was excellent. Very flavorful, but not too strong or overpowering. Malt, grass, citrus, and apple with a very light bitter citrus aftertaste. I actually liked the beer better after it warmed up to room temperature. The taste became much more sweet and defined. I had mixed feelings about this beer before trying it. I had heard good things about it, but wasn't sure how it would be, especially since it's made by Coors. I'm happy to say that I really enjoyed this beer and would definitely drink it again.
