Coors Edge Review

Today we’re taking a closer look at Coors Edge – the non-alcoholic version of the classic American lager. 

Not something I’m too excited to try, if I’m honest, but I was still intrigued to see how this alcohol-free alternative would measure up.

As always, I’ll take a closer look at Coors Edge and explore its appearance, aroma, flavor, and overall drinking experience.

So, let’s jump in and find out if this one is worth casually cracking open, or keeping stashed away until your relatives visit.

Too Lazy, Want To Drink

After finishing a can of Coors Edge, I have to say that it definitely lives up to its name. Because on the edge is exactly where my taste buds were left hanging.

All in all, if you’re looking for a non-alcoholic beer that actually tastes good, you might want to look elsewhere than Coors Edge.

Appearance

Coors Edge pours a pale golden color, with a one-finger white head that dissipates quickly, leaving no lacing. 

The beer is clear and has a golden-yellow hue, giving it an inviting appearance. 

However, the excitement ends there as the light white head sizzles off pretty quickly.

Very little lace remains no cap, and not much going on. The appearance falls flat very quickly, and is a dead giveaway that this one is an NA beer.

Definitely not the most exciting-looking beer out there.

Aroma

The fragrance of Coors edge is mild but pleasant, with subtle hints of grain and corn that tickle your nose. Definitely a dominant grain and malty aroma. 

The scent isn’t overpowering but has just enough intensity to pique your interest. 

Flavor

Cracking open the can and taking that first sip, I couldn’t help but feel slightly underwhelmed. 

While there were certainly notes of crispness and light bitterness present in each swig, overall it lacked some depth of flavor that other beers bring to the table.

While there are some underlying notes of malt and grain present in the profile, overall it doesn’t have a whole lot going on. 

Perhaps some people enjoy that in a beer, this one is more like a grainy seltzer than a lager.

Mouthfeel

For me, the mouthfeel saved this beer. 

The mouthfeel was light and crisp. The carbonation level felt just right – not too heavy or too light, and gave it a refreshing feel. 

Paired with the flavorless profile this one could be a good choice for someone looking for a beer without the taste of a beer. 

Overall Impression

So, after finishing a can of Coors Edge, I have to say that it definitely lives up to its name. Because on the edge is exactly where my taste buds were left hanging.

Let’s start with appearance. The can looks sleek and sophisticated, but unfortunately the liquid inside doesn’t quite match up. It has an unappealing pale yellow color that goes flat way too quickly and just screams ‘watered down.’

And speaking of watered-down, let’s move onto the flavor. Coors Edge claims to be a non-alcoholic beer with all the flavor of regular beer. Well, I hate to break it to them, but they missed the mark by a long shot. The taste was bland and lacking in any real depth or complexity. It tasted like somebody had taken a regular beer and added about five gallons of water to it.

The aroma wasn’t too bad, nothing I could take the time to enjoy, but pretty inoffensive and definitely smelled better than it tasted.

The mouthfeel was the savour. It felt refreshing to drink, so it could be quite satisfying on hot summer days when you want something cold but don’t feel like drinking alcohol. 

And, for those looking at calorie intake: with only 41 calories per can- this definitely could be an option for those looking out for their waistline.

All in all, if you’re looking for a non-alcoholic beer that actually tastes good, you might want to look elsewhere than Coors Edge.

How Does Coors Edge Compare To Coors Light

Although both are produced by the same company and share similarities in flavor and taste, there will be some differences due to the lack of alcohol in Coors Edge. 

In terms of taste, Coors Edge has a similar flavor profile to Coors Light, its a light lager with a crisp and refreshing taste that is easy to drink. However, Coors Edge lacks the bitterness and body that is present in Coors Light. 

Coors Edge to me, tastes more like a grainy seltzer than a beer.

Even though the flavor is lacking, it does still give the same feel of a drinking a Coors Light, although if you are drinking from a glass, Coors Edge does go flat very fast compared to a Coors Light.
