3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. Clear orange-amber with almost a film of bubbles. Nose of toasted nut, caramel, dry grass and lager yeast. Taste is toffee, toasted pecan, raisin, light citrus and dried grass. Light body has light-medium carbonation and is well balanced. This is a decent Vienna and a nice fooler beer from MillerCoors; their best "craft" entry to date.

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.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

Itís light, somewhat general tasting. It isnít horrible. Definitely goes down easy but doesnít have much character. A regular beer.

1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
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.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

Hey, dip shits! Donít you get it? The macros put this glop out trying to pretend itís a micro. Once James Koch and the other micros are either out of business or sell out to Augustus Coors evil spawn, the macros will dump anything remotely micro and continue to flood the market with their overpriced corn water. You dumb-asses that think itís a good idea to pay a tax to build billion dollar stadiums so millionaires can play a childs game will lap that right up, wonít you? This goop tastes like soup bullion soaked in horse piss. íNuff said!

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Poured a clear, dark golden color with some carbonation and a big, white head that left mild lacing. Had light aromas of caramel, malts, and grains. Mouth was like drinking water with a light hop bite. Some malts began to come through as I drank more of the beer. This beer shows no signs of the passion for brewing these cats claim to have.
