This light, flavoured adjunct lager from Molson Coors Canada pours a light pencil yellow colour with a moderate soapy white head that burns off within a couple of minutes, leaving a string of a collar behind without any lacing. Coors Light Iced T actually smells kind of nice. There are aromas of lemongrass, green tea and ginger ale, with light grain and honey accents.
Coors Light Iced T has a very refreshing taste made up of sharp lemon and dry tea flavours. It has more in common with a lemon-flavoured ginger ale than anything resembling beer, though it’s far less sweet than I had expected. The beer has a very thin mouthfeel with a moderate amount of carbonation. There is a bright pop on the tongue, with an ever so slight oiliness. The finish is scantily malty, mildly dry and the aftertaste leaves a lingering lemon flavour.
The traditional “Silver Bullet” can Coors Light Iced T comes in has some minor cosmetic differences from its non-flavoured cousin, with the letting printed in a rusty amber colour instead of blue. Curiously, the “Rocky Mountain Cold” indicators are not present. You can find a coded freshness date stamped on the bottom of your can.
From a technical standpoint Coors Light Iced T is a terrible beer on all accounts, but it’s far less offensive than contemporaries such as Bud light Lime or Molson Canadian 67 Sublime and it makes a refreshing and extremely drinkable beverage. By all logic I should hate this, but I don’t and I could see myself picking this up for golfing, fishing or having it at a baseball game.
You can find Coors Light Iced T in cans, bottles and tallboys at most LCBO and The Beer Store outlets and it is distributed throughout Canada.
