Can. Pours clear amber with fizzy, off-white head. Aroma is cookie and caramel malts, floral hops, light dates, and some funk. Flavor is bready malts forward with supporting toffee, floral hops, and some dark fruit esters; dry finish. Light body and medium carbonation.

On tap in McFaddens NYC. Deep amber coloured beer with a head. Nothing much to smell. Some malty character, a bit of biscuit, and a rather forced and slightly metallicy bitterness (which I have found in a few American attempts at a Vienna). So nothing special but perfectly drinkable.

Stellaaaa (258) - Tennessee, USA - MAY 18, 2013
Pours a clear orange with a thin white head. It has a sweet, slightly piney (but very subtle) aroma. The taste is of bitter pine with some bitter malt near the end. Tasty!

Pours amber into a shaker. Bright white head with medium retention recedes to skim surface. Nutty caramel aromas. Medium balanced with caramel and dry earth front to back.

Can @ Camden Yards. Pours clear amber with a medium, fizzy white head, short retention with light lacing. Aroma is Vienna malt and spicy hops. Flavor is malt dominant with light hops and bitterness with a dry finish. Light body and medium carbonation.

Very weak aroma; just a hint of malt. Flavor is vaguely caramelly with a slight bit of hops. Not bad at first, but it becomes quite metallic - palate is not particularly pleasant at the end. Drinkable, but not by any means a tasty example of the style even while fitting the basic parameters. BMC clearly tried to ride the fence with this one, tilting toward the side of the macro crowd. This will likely not lead many people to craft beer - Samuel Adams Boston Lager is already the benchmark of the style, after all. I think this beverage is for people who are a little bored with the usual BMC offerings but donít want the craft stuff.

Block (1650) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - MAY 17, 2013
Itís light, somewhat general tasting. It isnít horrible. Definitely goes down easy but doesnít have much character. A regular beer.

Parrothead (292) - Ephrata, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 16, 2013
Itís a pretty beer. Fizzy head. What are we trying to do here? No nose that I could find. Malty sweet. Until I tried it, I honestly did not know that is was a Coors product. I like the original Coors better. Put this one with Coors Lite. Blick.

Westmeister (2020) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 15, 2013
16oz can for a buck! Pours clear amber with a rocky, soapy white head. Smell is heavy sweet grains, almost malt liquor like, with some minor light fruits and a bit of spoiled garbage. Taste is some caramel malts, medium sweet with a tangy metallic tinge. If it was a malt likka I would say decent. Since its a poorly disguised macro lager I say blah.

I was willing to hate this beer. First it was the TV commercials that reeked of "crafty" beer. Then I found out it was a Coors product. Then I opened the bottle and poured it into a glass. I thought, "Great color and clarity. Nice appropriate head." Smelled it and thought, "Light malt character with a slight hint of floral hops." Tasted it and thought, "Okay bitterness and a very light palate." And finally I looked at the reviews on this site and thought, "Its not THAT bad." I have to say that in every book I read about beer appreciation, it says not to judge a beer by its brewer. I hate to say that the reviews of this beer here, make me think that most of the people that use this site have lost that sense of acceptance. There are plenty of craft beers that taste worse than this. Just because a big brewer made it, does not necessarily mean its bad.
