MadMan's rating

   AROMA 2/10   APPEARANCE 2/5   TASTE 3/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 8/20
MadMan (495) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - SEP 12, 2009
Bottle. Had both original and light at a party. Very light golden color with a white bubbly head. My mountains were blue. Next to no aroma, maybe some light graininess like the light but this one has some sweetness as well. Some hints of malt and a little light sweetness. More flavor than the light, but not really in a good way. I drank it very quickly though and did not spend too much time pondering the finer aspects of it. I think being unable to get this in MN in my youth brought about a mystique that increased its popularity in my area. Its much the same as people speak about Yuengling here in AZ. I wish I could allow those memories to affect my rating, but this is just not my favorite among the macro swill.

12 Fl. Oz. Can. Poured yellow, Clear medium white head, no lacing. aroma of bread and malts. Taste is similar, malts, grain, some yeast and some hops. not the greatest but certainly not bad when compared with the other macros. I never say no to a free beer.

Bad but if you insist on having a macro... better than Budtwiper, Miller Low Life... not bad when you want to reflect on your pre-craft days... good after a hunt, on the boat or after a sweaty game of ping pong

Many years ago when I was in college Coors had a cult following. Limited availibility likely had a lot to do with it. No longer. Drank out of a 16 oz. can. Unfortunately the can imparts a significant aluminum taste. Bottled Coors is the best way to imbibe. But otherwise I detect a lot of not very much. Slight rice flavor. Simply Rocky Mountain spring water I guess. Unfortunately not a lot to recommend.

DandyWolfFloyd (1171) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 8, 2016
Aroma - is fairly basic pale lager, 2 row barley, minimal mellow hops, a touch of adjunct. Appearance - has a golden body, good nucleation, and an initial 1" head that rings out. Taste - fairly mellow, clean, slight hop spice, and some adjunct. Palate - body is light, texture is lean, the carbonation is lively, the finish is abrupt with some spiciness in the hop. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

My everyday go to. Ice cold on a hot summer day, nothing better. Quenches the thirst time and time again.

Pale straw gold with thin white head and streams of bubbles rising throughout; aroma is malty with sweet grainy notes; flava is light malt grain with notes of cantaloupe and some seltzer notes; feels watery light with fizzy zing; finishes tangy tinny with soft hints of hop bitterness

Your standard low flavor colored water with almost no aroma except for some corn... and water. Not for drinking.

I had it from the can. Im surprised it took me this long to rate this one. Its mostly grain and corn. Its clean, crisp, and refreshing. If I have to choose from these kinda beers, this is one of the better choices.

Pours a clear golden yellow with a white head. Lightly sweet malt aroma. Corn syrup taste. Slightly thicker and more flavorful than Coors light. Standard common beer. Nothing special.
