Milwaukee being a test market has given me the pleasure of tasting this lager on a regular basis. Slightly hoppy with a nice malt presence makes this one easy to drink. Don’t let the Coors name turn you off..

On tap. It is totally uninspired. Glad I only got a sample of it, it really blows donkey dick. If you want a helles beer or a "premium lager" go to germany.

Guest tap at lucky monk. Quite surprised. Clean tasting slightly malty and hoppy lager. Not bad at all. None of the adjunct flavor like many macros. Serving: Tap

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Date: July 21, 2011 Mode: Draft Source: Miller Brew House, Milwaukee, WI Airport Appearance: Translucent gold with slight head. Aroma: Grainy. Flavor: Consistent with aroma and maybe a little sweet, carbonated and light. Other: Clearly better than most of the mass produced garbage, but that is not saying much.

Regular mass produced swill. Nothing much exciting and just a little bit of malt flavor.

Tap. I think the low marks for this beer come from raters who dont want to like a Coors brew. Pretend this was made by Dogfish Head or Stone amd re-rate. I’ll bet the score goes up. I dont like Coors but heres my objective rating: Light golden pour with a smooth white head that kind of looks like a nitro pour. Lacing? It COATS the glass! Spicy nose like a fruitcake. Taste is cardamom and allspice, well weaved with hops. Kind of sweet like a circus peanut candy but very good. Medium palate.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Serving: Draft at the Nova Brewfest. It pours a clear gold with minimal head. The nose is grainy with a bit of cereal and not much else. The flavor seems to be all grain and no hops. I get a lot of cereals and it has more flavor than your typical BMC product, but it still lacks complexity and depth. Light to medium body with average carbonation and a short, grainy finish. Not worth revisiting.

Sampled at 4th NoVA Summer Brewfest. Pours clear amber with a medium, fizzy white head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (caramel, toast, grain), light spicy hops, an a clean lager character. Flavor is malt dominant with light hop bitterness. Light body and warmth, medium carbonation with a sweet finish.

UPDATED: DEC 24, 2013 Tap. Clear amber pour. Pretty much malt all over everything. Not bad for a standard lager, but certainly not terribly exciting.
