2.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bar promo, on tap. Pours a dark amber with a medium head. Aroma is not much - grain, dirt, a little hops. Flavor is pretty much all malt with a little spice and a light hops finish. Light body, medium carbonation. Not bad, but not something Iíd try again.

Appearance is medium white head with clear amber. Aroma is a sweet malt. Taste is actually a nice balance between malts and hops. Overall surprisingly good.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draft. Pours ruby-brown with a minimal white head. Not a bad ale, mostly cereal malt flavors with no real hop bite which the ads speak of. Clean and fresh tasting, slight hints of caramel and cherry.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Reviewed 9/16. 12 oz. poured on-tap into a beer mug at Olde Town Pub. From notes.
A: Pours a clear copper color. Not much of a head here aside from a thin off-white film (good on them for not pouring this with a lot of head, I guess).
S: Light caramel, grains, barley, and a touch of corn. Nothing impressive, but perfectly acceptable for what this beer is trying to accomplish.
T: Slightly sweet with a grainy touch. Finishes crisply, too. Itís okay, far superior to regular Coors.
M: Fairly light and crisp feeling, though it could be a hair less syrupy. It doesnít have the harsh carbonation of some macro lagers.
O: Next to a lot of craft lagers, itís competent yet wholly unimpressive; but next to other BMC macro lagers, itís a damn revelation. Donít seek it out, but give it a try if you manage to randomly catch it at your local watering hole.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: OCT 17, 2012 Bottle. Pours almost a clear amber with off-white head. Not much aroma in the works here, a bit of toasted grain and earthy hop. Flavor is of toasted grain, caramel, slight butter, earthy hop with a slight earthy, weedy finish. Light body with high carbonation. Overall, better then expected, like it.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
So, this is better than a regular coors, as it has just a hint of hops as well as some malts and maybe a bit of butter. Not bad.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at OTR. Pours a clear copper with a small frothy off white head that quickly diminishes to nothing. The aroma is raisin malt and wood. Medium mouthfeel with a toasted grain and caramel with light bitter finish. A decent premium lager from Coors.
