Coors Light is my regular 'brand' for light beer.

It seems like more recently the beer tastes different in the past. Perhaps in the last year or so.

Has anybody else noticed this? Or is it perhaps all in my head?

Oh yeah?...I was just thinking of the cans, which is how I normally drink it.

Maybe i've just been drinking too many different types of craft beers. I have been for quite a few years though, but Coors Light always seemed pretty consistent.

I thought it was me! I've noticed the change in taste, to the point that I don't drink it anymore, and it doesn't seem to matter if it's cans or bottles, I've tried both.

HIGHLY doubtful the Coors family would screw around with how Coors Light is made.

Though Coors light was my favorite for years, I've switched to Keystone light. I don't recall a real difference in taste between the cans and bottles. You can get an occasional flat one in either container though. I think Keystone light is smoother though some think they're one in the same. When dining out I generally settle for Coors light on tap as Keystone is rarely found on tap.

Colorado had some rule changes in the last year which may affect quality.

It tastes the same to me. Coors Light is one of my old "regulars" that I keep stocked.

Yeah ...maybe I should try one on draft sometimes. Usually when I go to a bar I'll get a craft beer on draft.
Just because these beers are harder or impossible to find at the stores.

I've always preferred Coors Light to the common alternative (in my area) , of Bud Light.
