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.

From a vintage-looking can. Pours an ultra clear golden without much bubbles being seen. It is covered by a small soapy ring that leaves few but at least some lacing. Nose is of sweet cereals and corn, a little fruity. Taste is a little sweet, offers some malty flavors along with a little corn (malty in its own way but you get it, it still tastes like your usual macro lager) but way less than your usual macro beer. Body is light and carbonation surprisingly intense. A bit too much, even. Overall this isn’t a huge step from Coors Light but still, a little better.

Not bad, I was suckered into thinking this coors banquet was a different beer. Oh well, not bad though. Clear light gold, light head, fairly fizzy at first. Light sweet corny malt aroma, slightly buttery. Mouthfull of fizzy foam, corny light sweet grain,some mineral, somewhat tart,some tart in finish. Slight banana fruit even a bit of pepper. Slight diety watery taste but good for a BMC beer. Cant remember the last time having this one or if I ever have even tried it. Seem to have a headache after drinking one though.

Not sure why this is rated so low. I was surprised as was expecting no taste at all. Corny malts and a clear crisp flavor. Was good very cold on a hot day. Much better than the Bud I had the day before.

Pale, straw color. Noticeable corn flavor. My favorite domestic "yellow, fizzy" adjunct beer. More flavor than one would expect. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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 (1208) - 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 (3022) - 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.
