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.

Its the banquet beer. You can drink it while doing anything. If its good enough for Joe Montana and Amhad Rishad its good enough for me.

710 cl can in Mahnattan, NY, around $2. Ultra light yellow color, short lived white head. Corny nose. Aroma: malts gone bad and unmalted stuff with forced fermentation alcohol and glassex, rice and adjuncts. Taste has a fake sugary thing and a woody tone. Reminds me immediately of Bud. Thin body, carbonated, dry. Melted fridge ice and carrot peel finish. No wonder this has to be icy cold. It doesnít taste bad, but really no beer here. Coors seems like it has something very interesting on its list, but not this one.

It is what it is. Itís honestly not that bad. Donít expect some craft beer gold with this one, but itís refreshing and cheap and isnít going to poison you. Tastes like an adjunct, smells like one and it is one. Comes by it honestly. Not the worst out there trust me.

Made with Rocky Mountain water. That DOES sound refreshing. I get the image of snow melting and running down, seeping into the ground, and they havje a well drawing it out and making beer with it. Ahh, it is refreshing to think about. This beer sort of lives up to that. Highly carbonated, it pours with a pretty thick head. The smell is sweet, maybe too much so. Color is dark yellow, itís kinda pretty. Looks like apple juice. Taste is sweet. Nothing offensive about it, no bitterness, slight sweetness. The sweetnesss of the aroma complements the flavor of the beer. The flavor isnít complex at all, it is what it is. But it tastes pretty good. Pretty good mouthfeel. I guess several of these would be heavy after a while. Overall, itís a good beer, Better than most macros. Thereís no shame in having it on hand for company.

This is my go-to macro beer. Coors pours a pale straw yellow with a medium white head. There is heavy carbonation with lots of streaming bubbles. The head does dissipates rather quickly and leaves some lacing. The aroma is pleasant and enticing. It consists of sweet bread, corn, and water. The taste is mild hop bitterness up front, very sweet finish, noticeable corn, and no alcohol. This beer is very easy to drink and is a much better beer than people give it credit.

This beer just arrived to my country has a "premium beer" licenced from another company. I has really nothig to offer to our country now I have tasted it. Just a cheap light commercial beer. Not the best or the worst in the supermarket. Can actually marketing do this crappy beer triumph? Time will say.

12 oz. bottle from Mario. Appearance: straw color, clear. Aroma: pils, light caramel. Palate: light body, average carbonation, crisp. Taste: sweet malt into light crisp hoppiness. You all know what it is.

Tall can at a bar, shared by the fam, theyíre not craft fans. Nose is nose-clearing corn. Flavour is pretty damn sweet slightly papery. Worse than average for the style.

Good traditional beer. Best enjoyed watching a football game or at the ballpark. In all reality, probably one of the best national beers for consumption.

Yup, coors original. Pretty standard pale lager. I bet more corny. Watching football.
