I have a soft spot for Coors Banquet Beer. It is a classic American lager. The flavor is very grainy and yet enjoyable. It has some body to it, adequate for the style and more than its competitors. I like this with a hearty burger and especially fresh off a tap out west.

I don’t see what everyone’s problem with this beer is it is way better than the original and the smooth taste from a cold glass bottle is the only way to truly experience and enjoy this beer

2015 BJCP Category: 1B American Lager

AROMA: Genuine barley smell with slight sweetness. Corn cereal grist adds subtle sweetness. Faintest trace of earthy hops. Clean fermentation. 9/12

APPEARANCE: Light yellow/golden hue (2-4 SRM); brilliant clarity. Large white foam mostly dissipates. 3/3

FLAVOR: Lightly sweet taste of authentic barley, though no specialty malt whatsoever. Corn adjunct imparts additional sweetness, but seems more of a garnish than a main course. Clean fermentation character. Only minute bitterness and no distinctive hop flavor (though none needed). Clean dry finish. 17/20

MOUTHFEEL: Light[ish] body; high carbonation. Refreshing and highly quaffable. Slight carbonic bite. Sessionable for most people at 5% ABV. 4/5

OVERALL IMPRESSION: Exactly what an American adjunct lager should be. Not delicious but definitely a shining example of the style. 9/10

Bottled as part of blind shit beer taste test. Pours pale yellow white head. Aroma is very medicinal and tons of corn. Flavor follows. Unpleasant.

Beer is good, better than Coors Light in a different way. Recommend this beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a thick foamy head but goes away pretty quick. No lacing whatsoever. Pale straw coloured appearance. Light malt aromas with a dash of wheats. Mild malt flavours, some wheats and grains. Very light citrus hop flavours also. Fairly weak carbonation. Better than the light version!

UPDATED: JUL 29, 2017 Sub par, taste like corn. Only reason it’s getting a 2 is bc of the alcohol content. Use to be my goto until I discovered Hamms. Cost more than your average low grade beer.

Poor head and a standard yellow body with a bland, non-distinct aroma typical of a macro brewed pale lager. The taste is superior to any other beer in it’s class though. My goto session beer.

24 fl oz can. Pours clear and golden yellow. Small white head. Aroma is grassy, straw. Dry, light bitter. Grainy and grassy. Dry far finish.

UPDATED: JUL 10, 2017 I dont like this beer. Every time I try one I’m reminded of how marketing and peer pressure influence my behaviour. Sadly.

swesson (462) - Highlands Ranch, Colorado, USA - JUL 8, 2017
From a 1936 original short bottle. Pours a clear, pale yellow and makes frothy white head that quickly dissipates. Aroma is of pale malt. Tastes of malt and little else. It's not a bad beer at all. Just so simple and devoid of hops, distinctive malts, and yeasts, that it's just not enough for me ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
