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.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 3, 2007
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Clear, pale golden with a tiny, white head. Very discreet aroma - perhaps a whiff of corn. Thin body with these typical, lightly sweet notes of chicken fodder that seem to be the standard of American macro swill. No bitterness. This doesn’t taste foul or anything, it just hardly has any taste at all. 230307

For some reason, this was sought after when I was growing up in New York, maybe because it was hard to get east of the Rockies. Not that it is as command as the rhinovirus, there is no need to look for it any more.

Pale blond color. The aroma is more fruity than expected, like a lemonade/Radler. The flavor is watery, almost sweet as it has no bitterness.
Not pleasant, not a beer, not offensive either.

Bottle. Trust me, there are better american beers.... No aroma, no taste. At least it does not have that much strange and bad side effects...

yngwie (16422) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 18, 2013
Can, 24oz. As Coors Golden Beer/Banquet. A small, dense, white head sits on top of a clear, golden body. The aroma has a malty and fruity touch, pears and yellow apples, with a grassy touch. Very weak, and that goes for the flavor too. Some bitterness towards the short end. Medium to thin on the palate, dry and pleasantly carbonated. Not very interesting this one, but at least there’s some flavor. 130818

brokensail (15570) - Dublin, California, USA - FEB 22, 2010
UPDATED: JAN 30, 2014 Can @ BBQ. Clear golden straw pour with a white head. Nice biscuity, doughy aroma. Lots of sweetness, a bit of corn, and grain. Slight apple esters. Flavor is pleasantly sweet and really, really doughy. Biscuit, grain, and corn sweetness as well. Hints of apple, light floral notes, and minimal bitterness.

Oakes (15256) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 4, 2009
This is a really sweet, bland brew. Yellow colour and low carbonation like all good budget swill. Drinks quick and painlessly with a good dose of corn in the finish. Yikes.
