Default Thank goodness for color changing beer label mountains!

I don't know about you guys, but I have a hard time telling when beer is cold. I mean, hot - cold... cold - hot. IT'S SO CONFUSING!!!!

I'm just so glad that the fine folks at Coors have the color changing labels to tell me when the beer is cold... otherwise I'd never know.

My system is to check the label for a mountain, if there is a label, I go grab a homebrew instead.

Well, they had to do that because BMC tastes like $hit smells. Otherwise, you wouldn't know when it's ready!

Don't get why there is so much coors bashing on here

Personally, I love coors - and think as far as the big three go they are by far the best. I homebrew, yes, but I always will drink a coors. Can not beat the rocky mountain spring water!

I agree. Without those mountains I'd be lost. I don't understand why other breweries don't have these labels I mean how am I supposed to know whether my beer is cold. What am I a scientist?

I find myself drinking other beers and wondering if they're cold enough because the label didn't change.

I figured out that you can peel the labels off and use packing tape to affix it to my home brews. Worked great for my budweiser clamato clone I just made!

I think they should have those labels aon all BMC. That way we know it is cold enough to numb the taste buds. Otherwise we might actually taste the beer an realize that it has no flavor and that is what their brewers strive for.

I wonder if most people could actually tell the difference between most light beer. My guess is no. It is brewed to have little or no flavor so it appeals to as many people as possible. To bad they don't focus more energy and money on making good beer instead of advertising or they might actually be able to make good beer.
