how long would keg be good?

A restaurant closed near me and i procured a keg of coors light totally sealed. I know it is well over 1 year old maybe 2. Is the beer still good?

Coors Light?

It really isn't that good fresh. The only way to know if it is still palletable is to give it a try. Chances are that it won't taste that great.

for comparison

i know its not that great. But it was free and a plus is that i can reuse the keg for my own purposes. In the meantime its main purpose will be to showcase my homebrews. Maybe even trick haters by telling them its my beer and when they criticize it , show them whos boss. Or compare by giving taste tests. I know the homebrew will always taste better.

The beer will still be good, as in safe to drink, it just might not taste very good.

Should be fine if it was stored properly. We used to joke that you could bury a can of bud for 10 years, dig it up, pop the top and pour :roll: commercial beers last longer (surprise)
