My co-worker brought back 6 bottles of Coors Banquet beer for me. And no I have never seen Smokey & the Bandit. I had asked for Four Loko, but that is now illegal in New York, and any state near New York. A worthy second choice granted my first choice.
I have had Coors Light before, I can't recall the flavour—or lack there of. Though I can say with much certainty that Banquet is a far superior beer to Light. The beer pours with extremely pale straw colour with a head with little retention. A faint aroma of malt, and grains is present, but very subdued. Almost undetectable. No hop character whatsoever in aroma, flavour. A slight bitterness on the back end, but very mild. I had two bottles, one rocky mountain cold and the other not. The latter bottle the sweetness of the malt comes through more heavily. Which is to be expected. Not overwhelming sweet, but not very balanced either. Interestingly enough, the beer does have a slight tartness reminiscent of a dry white wine. Some how I doubt they are using Nelson Sauvin, so it was a curious taste. This was more noticeable in the warmer bottle.
As much as I can say in summary is not a bad beer for Coors, and at least it isn't Light.
