A few weeks ago, my sister and I went out to brunch. Our brunch was awful. I got this chicken sandwich that had more bones in than a piece of fish. It was seriously gross and I couldn’t even eat. We ended up in the bar next door to watch a baseball game afterwards. Although they advertised having some craft beer, they were ones that I had already reviewed, so I sat down with this classic brew to give a try.
Style: American Adjunct Lager
Trivia: Right now, Coors has four different heritage cans. You can see them here.
Random: Even the label on this one looks like an antique. I don’t think I’ve had one of these brews since I was in my early twenties.
I had the option to try this one in a “frosty glass.” I shockingly declined. This one poured with a half a finger of white head that dissipated quickly and left no lacing on the glass. The body was a clear, dark yellow color with light carbonation visible throughout. The nose gave off whiffs of corn…and that was it, although it wasn’t surprising. The taste was heavy with corn and then some honey sweetness right behind it. It had a slight hint of skunk at the end of the sip. The body had moderate carbonation and was relatively heavy for the style. The finish was way too long with corn. This beer had very few redeeming qualities. It didn’t have much flavor and it was one of those beers that was wet and that’s the most that you can expect. I wouldn’t have this again.
