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. Ironicmedic (77) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 5, 2013
12 oz bottle, light lager. East to drink as a session beer. Drank from bottle so don't know about head MarkBarnes (419) - Waterville, New York, USA - MAR 4, 2013
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. onceblind (10893) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 4, 2013
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. dwyerpg (6498) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - FEB 28, 2013
This beer is pretty decent. A nice appearance, the beer is pretty simple but it goes down smooth. r464 (2377) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 27, 2013
Bland and watery. Thin overall with a light maltiness, sweet caramel and nuttiness, then a thin finish. bpreo (3011) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - FEB 27, 2013
A decent job from Coors Brew Co. Good flavor, nice alcohol content. Worth a try. keanex (1799) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - FEB 26, 2013
Best before July 1, 2013.
Appearance: The body is crystal clear with a nice amber color and a tall foamy but thin textured head. The head has decent retention and settles into a thick and creamy light tan coating.
Aroma: The aroma is very light, very inoffensive. Some fruity esters, a touch of floral hops, and very light sweet malts.
Taste: Right away sweet malts with hints of caramel mesh with fruity esters, with a touch of hops overlying the malt base. This is very inoffensive, on par with Yuengling.
Palate: Medium bodied, slightly sticky, with soft carbonation.
Overall: This is further proof that MillerCoors would rather spend money on marketing an overpriced boring beer towards the craft market instead of actually brewing a quality beer. This isn’t bad, but in areas where Yuengling is available this just comes off as an overpriced alternative.
