I first tried a Coors Light while on a motorcycle trip down through Mississippi. I had it with gumbo and catfish (yes I was a bit off the low carb for the trip!). The beer went very well with the meal. A lot of low carb beers are so carb-less that they taste like water when you try to drink them with food. But this one had a good, fresh flavor, had a decent body and finish.
Since then I've had it a variety of times. It's got good flavor. It can hold up to pepperjack cheese. It has a substantial beer "heft" to it. You don't feel like you're drinking Sprite with this.
If you're going to drink more than one, you might have to default back to one of the "thin beers" that boast fewer carbs. But in my book, I'd MUCH rather just have one of these good ones, and enjoy it, instead of downing lots of watery beer.
Where other low carb / light beers have adjusted their formulas over the years, playing with their numbers, Coors Light has been at these carb values since the very beginning. So they seem content with the combination of flavor-vs-carbs that they have developed.
For the curious amongst you, Coors is just one part of the Molson Coors Brewing Company which is the 5th largest brewer in the world! Coors itself was founded back in 1873 by a pair of Germans, in Golden, Colorado.
