2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
UPDATED: MAY 1, 2013 I am rerating this beer since my initial tasting in January 2013. I had a bottle last night and the hop oil aroma jumped out at me. I had not noticed that before, so it may have been reformulated. The amber color is pleasant, but the hop oil aroma is too intense for the low bitterness. All in all a decent product from Coors, but certainly not pre-prohibition style. The use of caramel malts and hop oil screams modern microbeer. Coors light drinkers do not like this product at all (which is no surprise), but I do not think that microbrew drinkers will like it either as it is too middle of the road. What is interesting is the fact that the major brewers are now trying to break into the craft beer scene. Who would have thought just 20 years ago that they would ever make anything besides cheap, watered down, bland lagers?

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Backlog rating on 11-18-2012 (Bottle) The appearance is a small, creamy, smooth off-white head with a long retention, transparent golden body, lively, fast rising carbonation, and a fair amount of lacing. The aroma is grainy malt and a suggestion of corn. The flavor is lightly sweet, hint of hops and malt. The mouthfeel is moderate carbonation and this beer is medium bodied. Overall, this beer does not have a lot of character to it. The flavor is not bad, but it does not leave me wanting this beer again.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
"Had semi-high hopes for this, and it turned out just ok. Pretty much what I should have expected. I already thought classic Coors is the best of the BMC products. This is about on par with that, or maaaybe a little better, due to the eber so slight hop presence, but it’s really just a non-offensive corn or generic malt driven light lager. The flavor would have workled a tiny bit better if the carbonation wasn’t so gassy...that took away from what possibly would have been a stright 3. Glad I tried it, probably won;t again."

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Transfer from BA review on 1-7-13-
Served on tap in a pint glass
Appearance – Pours a golden amber colored brew with a one finger white head. The head fades rather fast to leave a nice level of lacing.
Smell- The aroma is heaviest of a bready and caramel smell. Mixed with these aromas is a light hop smell of a citrus and earthy nature
Taste – The taste begins with flavors of bread and some caramel sweetness. As the flavor advances a light roasted malt flavor comes to the tongue along with some hop flavors of an earthy nature come to the tongue. As the flavor advances more to the end, it crisps up more as the caramel flavors diminish some and more bready flavors comes to the tongue. With these transitions more hop flavors of a light citrus nature come to the tongue as well and leave a lightly hopped crisp flavor on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the lighter side in terms of thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is very average. It’s pretty decent for the style as it is smooth and matched the crispness and light hop flavors of the brew fairly well.
Overall – A nice easy drinking and good session brew. It has enough hop flavor to make it somewhat exciting, but it still maintains an easy and relatively clean lager taste.

At Denver Airport. From tap. Reasonably attractive in glass - clear light gold with half a finger head that quickly recedes. A little funky nose - some malt. Taste is corn, malt, and really just kind of blah. It's not particularly interesting or good.

I drank this at Summerfest in Milwaukee, WI, then I went to the hospital for 4 days (completely unrelated to the beer). This is the last beer I'll have for a little while, and I'm kinda bummed it was this one.

Bottle. Aroma is funky. Grass, dirt, bread. Taste is same funky. Flavor is weak, all grass, metallic. Not that good imo, but better than most main stream beers.
