Beer added by: BeerAdvocate on 08-20-2001

Around the world, Canada is seen as a shining example of nature at its best. We have thousands of freshwater lakes and barley fields as far as the eye can see. That's what makes us so proud to brew Molson Canadian, our signature beer. Brewed without preservatives, from St. Johns to Vancouver, over 3000 Canadians have a hand in bringing Molson Canadian to their family, their friends, and their communities. The people who live here truly deserve a beer brewed with the best this land has to offer. That’s why we make sure our award winning lager is as clean, crisp and fresh as the incredible country it comes from.

Pretty solid beer, really smooth and easy to drink. It leaves a wheaty apple taste in your mouth. Nothing really special though.

Crisp, clean, and refreshing. A good companion for fishing, the beach, or just puttering around in the yard.

I drank a lot of this in the 1980's when this had a Canadian counterpart that was 10% alcohol.

It's alright. A good choice if your choices are few. A good cheap beer. Nothing more.

I used to live this stuff a long time ago but aroma is of corn and virtually no flavor. Not bad on a hot day after working outside and perhaps slightly better than other adjunct lagers.

Better than Budweiser. And every time I partake in drinking this fine Canadian offering,I have a yearning to watch "Slapshot". What's not to like about this beer?

Not much to say. Just a beer. Canadas Budweiser. Drink 9 of them and play only slap shots on a pond.

FOR WHAT IT IS, it's phenominal

if you want a cheap, easy to go down beer that you can put several down with the boys then this is by far the best tasting option.

it goes down smooth. actually tastes like a lager somewhat. and it's very refreshing

when i'm not in the mood to make my stomach feel bloated but want a beer, this is a solid go-to. just wish it was more available in the states since it's miles ahead of any macro we have.

decent macro-swill for when you just want something simple and refreshing without a tidal wave of caustic hop bitterness.

Compared to other AAL's, this isn't horrible. Little sweet with a kick of carbonated water on the finish.
