Newsflash:
Coors Cavorts as Craft!

Poured from a bottle into a glass.
Look: Crystal clear, light copper hue, moderately high carbonation.
Smell: Malty and yeasty. Some pear-like sweetness coming through.
Taste: Yeast/malt flavor with a slight sour tinge. Strong malty sweet aftertaste reminiscent of a Malta Goya soda from the Mexican grocery.
Mouthfeel: Light as a middle school jockey. Fizzy.
Overall: Coors Cavorts as Craft! (but still tastes like Coors)

A shame that Coors has to hide behind a fake brewing company and pass this off as a craft brew. A very weak example of an amber lager, faint malt aroma, fast fading airy head, malt taste (think malt liquor). Very disappointing.

I never had to put unopened beer in the trash until I tried this one. I did not pour the five bottles out and recycle them because anything that touched this beer should not be used by humans ever again. It may not have been prudent to get a sixer of a beer I knew nothing about, but let me explain. The closest bodega to my apartment has a pretty tiny bottled beer section and with the World Series looming I'll need to stay carbonated. The lack of any information on the label about the brewery was a red flag that I ignored like colorblind bull. Only later on, too late, did I notice the label's real sign of disaster: the thematic incongruity between the militaristic motto "Band of Brewers" and the name, suggestive of labor, possibly referring to the time during which they mix Coors, Coors Lite, sugar, and red dye and, nodding to the craft market, add a touch of Colorado snow that has been shat on by the passing Budweiser horses.

Honestly, I really liked this until I realized it was made by Coors. I did a double-take and got over myself. Thanks, Coors, for making something that doesn't taste like squirrel piss for once.

No need to elaborate on what other reviewers have said. I'll just say that if i'm looking for something about this caliber and in this style, I'll just stick with an old friend Yuengling, which is a tad better in my opinion.

Grossly sweet and bad smelling. A cheap beer but I'll still complain about it. Not sure how someone could drink this, very little carbonation, just tasted of very sweet malts and caramel. I can't really describe this beer to we'll but it was an awful beer. Would never buy again. If you are looking for something cheap but different (like I was) stay away from this, unless you enjoy feeling sick from sweetness.
