355ml can poured into tulip 10/8/15

A clear straw yellow with a couple tiny bits here and there, tiny bubbles feed a thumbs width of fast falling foam that leaves no lace

S corn syrup, solvent, faint apple, sweet grains and a little booze

T a hint of grass on top of what I smell, macro chemicals don't do much for me, pretty bad

M watery, a little foamy, a little heat and solvent on the finish

O even for the big guys this ones pretty bad, nothing to see here folks

A struggle to finish this one, no reason to bother with this stuff

Great addition to high test beer brands! For those that like a high test beer, THIS is one that tastes great! No gagging tastes here! Tastes like a Coors Banquet, which I enjoy but with a 6.4 kick. Not gagging tastes like a Faxe 10 or a Crest- crappy high test beer that has to be cut with a regular beer to be drank.
This stuff in a classy cool alum. bottle goes down easy, tastes great and gives u a good buzz...what it's designed for! 4x 473ml big mouth alum bottles or 12x 355ml cans.
Can't go wrong with Altitude dude... 4.5/5
my daily drinker now! Coors does something right!

473ml single (thankfully), wide-mouth aluminum bottle. This sure snuck in under the radar, and is apparently made in Canada, for the Canadian market, so far - um, wheeee?

This beer pours a crystal clear, bright pale golden yellow colour, with one chubby finger of weakly puffy, thinly foamy, and generally just bubbly dirty white head, which leaves nothing in the way of lace in the vicinity of the glass as it quickly dissolves.

It smells of semi-sweet grain, musty corn, white grape juice, ephemeral phenolic yeast, a touch of acetone, and the same faint skunky hoppiness so evocative of Coors Light. The taste is bready pale malt, cornbread and corn cakes, paint thinner-like alcohol, a stale apple and pear skin, um, 'fruitiness', and a redux of the dead grassy, skanky attempt at hops from the nose.

The carbonation is quite plain and basically inoffensive in its lo-fi burbling, the body an adequate middleweight for the metrics of the wavering styles here, and smooth, yeah, but with too many hovering fruity alcohol notes to make much of a big deal over. It finishes sweet, that sugary corniness maintaining some sturdy staying power, I gotta say.

Yup, Molson discontinues (I think) the Cold Shots (if so, good riddance), and subsequently sees its small circle of big-boy competitors getting in on the malt liquor-adjacent market. What to do? Well, like C.L.I.T. a few years back, release a meek trial balloon to the Canadian lab rats, and see what happens. Hopefully this piece of deservedly bottom shelf garbage suffers the same fate as its 'iced-tea' flavoured predecessor.

473 mL aluminum bottle from TBS, a relatively new arrival on the market, paid for with some empties. Served ice cold.

Pours clear golden-yellow, accompanied by a half-inch of fizzy, bone-white head that fizzles away rapidly over the next 30 seconds. Looks like any other macro lager to me, and the grainy aroma rife with corn sugary sweetness does little to dissuade me of this preconception.

The flavour is essentially the same - grainy, corny and syrupy sweet, with some grassy hop bitterness that is overrun by the saccharine notes and alcohol. A little boozy in the aftertaste, but this is mostly masked until it starts to really warm up. I don't have much to say about this one. Light-medium in body, with an annoyingly syrupy feel and plenty of carbonation that sort of makes up for it, while also making you bloated. Tastes alright when it's cold, but do yourself a favour and don't nurse this one.

Final Grade: 2.77, a C grade. Coors Plat-, um, Altitude is a noticeably less offensive option than your typical ice beer or malt liquor. Given the fairly high abv, this is at least a tolerable macro effort that I wouldn't immediately refuse if offered, but I can't think of any reason why I would ever want to purchase it again. Basically a Molson Cold Shot in a bigger, bottle-shaped can.

Alright be the first: Coors Altitude. This beer came in the market in 18/01/2015
Proud to be the first person to review it on beeradvocate.
This beer at this date of the 26/01/2015 still unknown. On the Molson Coors website u can't find this beer on their website. That is a weird marketing here. No press release either. Can't thing that much on google either but anyways.

So the look of it: Same as the Coors Banquet but with more carbonation and about less than a finger of head that quickly go away.

The smell of it: Once again like a Coors Banquet but with a little more flavour and more punch to it, with that touch of sweetness at the back

The taste of it: Still feels watery. Taste almost the same than a Coors Banquet.
That means its sweet while its goes done and its corny on the aftertaste.
There is more presences of the Alcohol. that corny taste is more punchy on the aftertaste than those other Coors. Goes down very smoothy. You won t notice that 6,4% ABV until 5 or 10 min until u start to feel it in your head. That beer made me so damn thirsty.

So overall would I recommend ? Well I mean sure. This is not my favorite one, the Coors Banquet is definitely better with more sweet to it and more pleasant to drink, but the Coors Altitude definitely does the job down on the Strong beer side. This is much much better than those Bud Light Platinum or the Budweiser Black Crown.
