Bottle served into Tennant's pint glass.

A - Thick white head. Good retention leaving no lacing. Dark lager colour.

S - Malt, lager yeast

T - extremely malty, with a small touch of bitter hop

M - very smooth, little to no carbonation.

I didn't realise this was made by coors when I bought it on holiday in America. It's a shame as I could've brought something else back. Unfortunately it just tastes the same as coors light with a slightly more bitter backbone. Maybe I'm bias as it took up a space in my suitcase something else could've, but it's an experience and at least I know for next time.

Solid beer! The appearance was the first thing that stood out to me, I drank it from an imperial pint glass that really made the carbonation look cool coming up the side and gliding off the ridge. There's some really cool amber notes in there and it's very drinkable. The mouthfeel is really really nice, carbonated but still smooth. Definitely found a new fridge staple.
