Man, I can taste the cold. Thanks to Craig for this 12 ounce delight. This is full of sulfur, caramel, bread, cooked corn sweetness. Thanks Craig, now I do not need to buy a sixer.

Bright clear copper color. Very easy to drink. Nothing special. Slight hoppiness and light malt flavor.

Looked good. Amber to a bit tan and clear, very nice head that lasted quite a bit and left pretty good lacing.
Smells pretty good too, both hoppy and malty but more on the hop side.
Taste is pretty good too. A good malty base accented with a surprising amount of hops.
Body is light, well carbonated, and extremely drinkable.
I wonder how many of the reviews of this beer are negative because it’s a coors product. Whilst not being a big fan of the big breweries, this beer is pretty good, and should be given its due. However, had I researched it a bit more I may have passed on it once I discovered it was from coors. That in itself should say something to any coors representatives reading this review. However, once again, a good beer is a good beer, regardless of who produced it. This is a good beer, and my review reflects that. Is it the best vienna lager ever? Probably not. But it’s damn enjoyable.

Mar. 4, 2013; 12 oz. bottle. Second Coors "faux micro" in a couple of weeks. Vienna-style lager with a bit of color, malt and zest. Golden pour; light, grassy aroma; durable lacing. Balanced, with a strong malt presence. Nice to see Coors joining the "micro-party" and making an effort to produce something full-bodied & drinkable.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear copper with a medium tight foamy white head. Nose was of sweet toasty bread crust, biscuity lager yeast, and peppery grassy hops. Medium-full flavored body with flavors of toast, crust, dry biscuity lager yeast, leafy grassy hops with light bitterness, and a crisp off-dry caramel finish.

Offered to me at a house party and couldn’t refuse. Medium bitterness, a bit rough on the palate, but, drinkable overall. Third Shift lurks in the grey area between macro and craft beers. More complex than I expected.

Pretty much your generic, run-of-the-mill beer. Wasn’t a bad beer (one I would turn down) just not real outstanding traits.

This beer is pretty decent. A nice appearance, the beer is pretty simple but it goes down smooth.

Bland and watery. Thin overall with a light maltiness, sweet caramel and nuttiness, then a thin finish.
