Got this can from my brother when he went down to the states. America's oldest brewery eh? Well maybe the US's but I believe in America as a whole, Molson's been around longer. That's enough of the history lesson, lets see how this one fares.

Appearance: Good clarity and carbonation and it did produce two fingers of head. However lack of lacing and retention bring this one back down to earth. As a Red/Amber Lager this one is certainly walking the line as it seems to be more of a light orange.

Smell: Slight scent of roasted barely, and that is it. Nothing bad, nothing exceptionally good, nothing all the strong either.

Taste: Well, it tastes like how it smells, the entire beer has the taste of roasted barley which then ends with a light dusting of refreshing hops. There is a certain charm this beer has in it's simplicity.

Mouthfeel: Nothing much to complain about, but nothing really exceptionally noteworthy. It seems to do everything decently. The carbonation is a little high but not excessive. There isn't really much in the way of aftertaste or transitioning, but it doesn't really need either.

Drinkability: Much more light and refreshing then you would expect from an Amber Lager which is good, and it adeptly avoids the hay like taste that other Lagers suffer from. Just a nice, smooth drinker.

Final Thoughts: Well, as I commented about Molson earlier, this beer seems to be very similar to Molson Canadian, in that it is a marker beer. When you think, what an average generic beer should taste like, this one fits the bill. It's not bad, it's just...well what it is. I'd pickup a six pack for the right price of course, but it's not going to knock your socks off.
