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?

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a clear amber color with a small off-white head. The aroma is a good blend of hops and caramel malt. The taste is big on malt with a hint of hops a surprising flavor from Coors. I really enjoyed it.

Oh, it's Coors. Maybe good for a hot summer day. Slightly sweet and bitter.

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
I don’t understand why this gets such high ratings. Must be the well-designed label, the pretty bottle and the Coors name. I for one am not a fan. Weak tasting, over-carbonated, with a very light body and very little palate. Very skippable, and certainly not worth $10.00 for a 6-er.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Marginal at best. This seemingly mix between a traditional marzen beer and a pilsner style lager leaves a sweet aftertaste but hits the palate strong at first.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured from bottle. Smells like malt and ocean. Not bad lookin Amber gold with white head. Getting some lager notes in flavor, along with sugar, grass and cereal. Syrupy aftertaste. It’s like a blend of three or more beers, and way too sweet for a lager.
