COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Banquet Beer was born in the Rockies and has been a proud part of the American experience for generations, stubbornly refusing to compromise, since 1873.

Much better than coors light, which is one of the worst beers on the planet.

The “Banquet Beer” still contains a measure of rice and refined corn starches, like most Macro-brews, but what sets it apart from other domestic brews is that it is made with naturally filtered Rocky Mountain water and special strains of Colorado high-mountain barley. This beer is light yellow in color and has a light head and light aroma. Some interesting things to note about this beer is that Coors takes about twice as much time to brew, age and process its beer as compared to its major competitors. This beer was a Gold medalist (American premium lager) at 1996 Great American Beer Festival®. Although this is not my favorite American beer, it is a good value in its price class and has a nice, balanced flavor.

Better than Bud, but it still lacks, like most domestic Americans do. Pick something else if you’re smart.

Average beer not bad for the price you pay, but still would go with C light

One of the better main stream beers. Much better on draft

As far as mainstream beers go this one is ok, but nothing to write home about. Has a nice head but a odd overly ’yellow’ color. Flavor is not great but not unpleasent.

OK - You wanna talk ’skunky’? This beer smells like sewage. Oddly, though, it tastes much better than it smells. A fair crisp flavor, but the nose and (to me) excessively light body sink the ship. If you haven’t tried it, you aren’t missing anything.

Odin (123) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - MAR 23, 2002
I think I’m the only one I know who’d rather have this than the silver bullet. Not that I like this, but it is better than Coors light.

Not to bed but nothing great. The non alch may be better in this case as it is a little strong.
