2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft. Pours a darker golden medium white head. Interesting aroma, bread and malt as well as some floral and fruit. Taste is a little sweet. Medium-light body, thin texture, average carbonation. Finish is a little bitter with a strange aftertaste. Overall its ok, something different from Coors.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 0z. bottle. Pours a medium, well retained white head, with a bit of lacing, over a very slightly hazy gold (SRM 5) body......nose is cereal, light toasted malts, hints of corn sweetness....taste is light cereal, malt, continual hints of sweetness, finishing with a light hop bitterness.....mouth feel light of medium, carbonation high. This is a light refreshing beer with mild, simple aromas and flavors. While the hop contribution is moderate, it is obviously present and detectable. It meets its style quite well. BJCP 7/3/13/4/6

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
12-oz. Thanks A&J! Pours a clear pale amber with minimal head and no lace. Smells treacly, like heavy corn syrup. Like maybe somebody left a PayDay bar floating in your stein for a while, or pureed some cheap grocery store white bread and refrigerated the slurry. But then there’s the faint vegetal and fusel quality, too--just to remind you that it’s beer. OK, before we go any farther, WTF is up with that custom capsule? They’re trying to make this look like a craft beer, so they....so, they...put it in a bottle that is custom-made just to hold this one beer? With ringers and date stamps on the neck? Those truckfulls of glass they ordered for this project cost more than what many small breweries spend on their bottling lines, if not their brew equipment, when they’re starting up. Who do they think they’re fooling? And they doctor up the label to look all scrappy and independent and weather-beaten, just come in to drain the water out of its boots before it goes out a-rootin and a-tootin agin, to bust some more doggies. This beer’s got triple hops that jingle jangle jingle, and a vortex bottle that’s home, home on the range. And if you look waaaay over on the side in tiny letters there’s something about Coors and how maybe it was brewed in Golden Colorado, or stopped there to watch high school sports and play horseshoes with the good salt of the earth folk it met there. Anyway, there’s no point mocking something when it kinda just makes fun of itself unintentionally anyway. So back to the beer. The body is fizzy water, and the mid-palate is the predictable shambles of fusel alcohol and a little dab of artichokes behind the ear, except this time they blasted it with a big hose full of corn syrup and sweetened it into a million pieces. So this is why they banned beer back in the day, huh?

2.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz bottle from a six-pack bought at Fred Meyer in CDA, ID. Pours clear copper with a medium off-white head that collapses in a minute or two, leaving creamy lace. Aroma consists of generic beer, vomit, cotton candy, creamed corn. Taste is mostly sweet with a faintly hoppy bitter finish. Thin body, medium carbonation. I really wanted to like this, I really did. Like that Budweiser Project 12 thing, It’s historically interesting to taste these riffs on these pre-Prohibition recipes. Apart from the vaguely hoppy finish that makes it rise briefly above most mass-produced swill, this was bland and uninspired. I’d like to think that the old-time Coors brewers who brewed this a century ago made this taste better than this, but who knows?

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Crystal clear orange pour with a frothy white head. Aroma is earthy with floral notes. Very malty flavor with a nice, crisp finish. This is a very clean, refreshing beer. I’m not sure I would call it a ’craft’ beer but it’s definitely a high quality lager that just feels mass produced by people who appreciate consistency.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear copper with a 1/2 inch head. Nose is grain, crackery malt, a hint of floral hops. Good bready malt base, a little citrus hops, a little metal and sweetness in the finish. Overall pretty clean and good mouthfeel. This is head and shoulders above any other macro I’ve had.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pale golden body, moderate sized white head, soapy lacing. Grainy, with light citric and floral hops, lager yeast. Light bodied, clean finish, gentle carbonation. Much better than expecting--certainly not something I’d intentionally select, but an improvement on what Coors normally puts out.
