Cans of Coors Light to feature new cold indicator

Cans and bottles of Coors Light will feature a new design which indicates when the beer reaches the “peak of refreshment”. As part of its upcoming Super Cold Summer, brewer Miller Coors is debuting its latest cold-acticated technology: New Coors Light two-stage super cold activation, which makes it easy to see when the beer goes from cold to super cold.
