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.

12 oz bottle. No aroma because of the overwhelming smell of smoke while at the "Boxcar" in Geuda Springs, KS. Flavor is grape juice, wheat, gummi bears. Overly sweet, but something that is actually somewhat palatable.

355ml can. Clear pale yellow with a frothy white head. Flavors are cereals, banana, sugar and grass. Light body, fizzy carbonation, thin texture.

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.

Oh well... Bière blonde, limpide, peu mousseuse. Le nez a peu à offrir, si ce n’est qu’une appréhension sucrée et quelques grains génériques. En bouche, la bière n’est pas très pétillante. Les saveurs sont celles d’une blonde qu’on retrouve en caisse de 24 à l’épicerie. Un peu de grains, un peu de sucre, pas trop d’amertume. Nous avons quelque chose qui se situe entre la Pabst Blue Ribbon et la Molson Ex. C’est loin d’être catastrophique, entendons-nous... Mais pendant que Labatt distribue Goose Island et des Alexander Keith’s mono-houblon au Québec, Molson-Coors nous balance la Amstel et la Coors Banquet, deux bières qui trouvaient déjà des équivalences sur le marché. Pour aller chercher la part de marché qui leur revient, je crois qu’ils doivent offrir quelque chose que le catalogue de leurs concurrents n’offre pas. Et c’est encore partie remise...

Cirrhosis (1201) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 12, 2014
Beer drunk as it should be straight out of the can with the six pack ring still attached. I dont understand how people can completly shit on this beer and give it a 0.1, there are far, far worse beers out there. I’m not trying to see this good but its not shit. Heavy metalics, some banana, mild sulpher. Taste is the same, you can drink the easy enough. Banana lingers forever. Carbonation is stinging. Just taste like a macro mess but it does have more flavour then most other macro’s.

Eructoblaster (2994) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 10, 2014
Can - 355ml. Pale blond, piss-like body with heavy carbonation and aninstantly fading white bubbly head. Very thin malty/hoppy aroma with some subtle grassy hints. Its watery taste carries bad corny and metallic notes. Ends with a short finish that reminds rotten vegetables. Thanks Seb for that unique tasting experience! ;-)

Best of the Macro-beers. Definitely tastes better than Budweiser or Miller. Coors will always be my staple beer. There are better beers, but by far the best of the big three.

MunBro (330) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 19, 2014
No flavour or aroma which is typical for Coors. Lots of wheat, straw, corn, etc but nothing else to offer.

Bork (131) - Rockmart, Georgia, USA - JUL 15, 2014
UPDATED: JUL 18, 2014 Refreshing, easy drinking. Comparably low on off-flavors for the style but very watery and light.

Probably the first banquet beer I’ve had in 20 years. Can’t say I’ve missed it. Glad I didn’t pay for it.

Just typed a rating for this, then the internet glitched- I have never had a positive experience with Coors in any aspect, lol. While I am disgusted by coors light, this is decent. A fine example of crude capitalism over craftsmanship, smells of metallic industrialism, has a lame yellow color and fizzy appearance. Taste is ok grainy malt, some stale hop bitterness. Light mouthfeel with a smooth cool finish, refreshing enough. Still worse than most others. Not terrible but still a cheap macro American adjunct lager.
