Coors Light (2017 re-review to BJCP specs)

ChadPolenz (1827) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - AUG 19, 2017

BBD: 11/6/2017

2015 BJCP Category: 1A American Light Lager

AROMA: Lightly sweet corn cereal character (though far from cloying). General base malt. Aroma is fairly mild overall, but clean fermentation. 10/12

APPEARANCE: Pale straw hue; very clear and effervescent. Moderate white foam mostly dissipates. 3/3

FLAVOR: Moderately-low corn cereal taste which is somewhat sweet. A general, light base malt presence. Hops are barely noticeable, but detectable in the form of spicy/peppery taste and weak bitterness. Clean, dry finish. Clean fermentation character. 17/20

MOUTHFEEL: Light body; high carbonation. Slightly refreshing, clean aftertaste. Highly quaffable. Sessionable at 4.2% ABV. 5/5

OVERALL IMPRESSION: Though not what I prefer to drink, this is certainly a classic example of the style. 9/10
