Coors: The Banquet Beer, Reviewed by Brandon C. Hovey

Beer: Coors

Brewery: Coors

Abv: 5%

Country of Origin: United States of America

Serving Methodology: 16 oz can poured into pint glass

Beer Style: American Adjunct Lager (Pale Lager)

Background: Since 1873, Coors beer has impressed people with it’s quality. This Rocky Mountain brew is one of the pillars of refreshment. This is how a lager should be. It is on the same level as my beloved Budweiser. The flavor and aromas are different though. The late 19th century was a beginning of a new era for American beer. Coors, in 1873, and Budweiser in 1876. These two beers helped define what an ‘American’ beer is. Let’s have a beer and enjoy American History.

Taste & Aroma: This beer smells of wet grain and bright malt at the end. Simple, but excellent. The taste of course is the star! I adore the sharp start of Coors. This is a bite, and it is not shy. Far from timid like others I could name. A fluffy malt middle is there and a clean finish with a small amount of spice is present. Simple, but exquisite. This is a premium beer.


Final Analysis: This is an excellent lager that is not only brilliant, refreshing, but simple, it is also a piece of American History. Ladies and gentlemen, this is beer. Drink it.
