While it's not news, it is a story about beer
COORS LIGHT – AS COLD AS THE ROCKIES
With its Coors Light beer, The Coors Brewing Company delivers exactly what it says on the bottle, “a crisp refreshing lager”.
The trick with Coors, as with many lagers is to serve at the optimum temperature to get the best out of the beer, too cold and it will taste flat, too warm…well I think we all know what warm beer tastes like.
The bottle has a “Cold Certified” label that is activated when the beer reaches the optimum drinking temperature. The Rocky Mountains on the label start to change colour from white to blue at around 9° C and are at full colour and ideal drinking temperatures at between 4°C and 7°C. With most people keeping their refrigerator at around 4°C, it is easy to serve Coors Light at the perfect temperature.
Putting all the science to the side, when poured the beer has a bright, golden appearance. The foamy head dissipates quickly leaving you with a very mild hoppy tasting lager.
It’s the kind of beer that goes down very easily and don’t be fooled by the “Light” description, this beer has a 4.2% alcohol content. So whilst it won’t blow your head off, you will know you have had a few. It also claims to be lower in carbs compared to regular beers but that review is for another day!
In conclusion, a very drinkable lager that is ideal for a session on a warm summers day.
