24 oz banquet can. Freshness dating absent but so is my concern on this particular day.
Pours a golden hued pale, with a slow mov-…Well actually I drank it from the can, but it poured well into my mouth. Cold. Refreshing.
Notes of grain in the nose, the slightest hint of floral. Who smells out of the can hole anyways?
Smooth, tight and tingly carbonation and awakes a bit of a creamy feel. Crisp, when ice cold. Pretty mellow on the palate, with a unique mineral quality, must be that Rocky Mountain water, eh? A bit of sweetness blends with a watery tangy hop character and a splash of bitter to balance the malt. Clean finish, like water, though foul flavors may become more pronounced as the beer warms. But it didn’t, because I chugged that shit.
Coors Original is more flavorful versus some of its competitiors, with a fuller, more rounded body. For what it is, and keeping the style in mind, it ain’t all that bad in the middle of a long bike ride when perched atop a mountain.
