Since I leave in Canada I had to try a molson Canadian.
The look of it is really light. You have that yellow golden color. You can see trough the glasse.
The smell remind me of the Molson Dry. So I was a bit worried about it since I hate the Molson Dry.
The taste of it is corny taste. Really watery remind me of the Coors Light for a bit and then of the after taste you have that punch of corn. It last for 4 or 5 seconds then disappear. It is not enjoyable at all. This beer is between a Molson dry and a Molson Export.
So overall would I recommend it ? NO. If you wanna drink Molson go crab Coors Light or Molson Export but not this one. If you choosing between a Budweiser or a Molson Canadian go get a Budweiser. Overall I am disapointed about that beer still have 19 cans to finish. Damn it's gonna be hard

Appearance - Clear and yellowish appearance. Pours thin head that disappears very quickly.

Aroma - Sweet and malty smell. Not much else. Nice for what it is though.

Mouthfeel - Prickly feel right away from the relatively strong carbonation. Leaves a little sticky feeling. Smooth though, very drinkable.

Flavor - Sweet, malty taste with hints of corn. Metallic aftertaste with a hint of sweetness.

Overall - Honestly it is what it is. It doesn't taste great but it'll get you there. I call this and beers like it 45's after the old Colt 45 slogan "Works every time". It has a high enough ABV and is cheap enough that it will do its job without tasting like Keystone or god forbid Natural Light. So it's good for what it is, but if you actually want to drink beer for beers sake it really isn't worth it.
