Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

So we left Cleveland after having lunch at the Great Lakes Brewery with the intention of heading up to Buffalo and Niagara Falls. Unfortunately, my sister and I were incredibly stupid, and didn't bother to get any coffee that morning (keep in mind, please, that we pulled into Cleveland around midnight and then proceeded to kill a half rack of GL beers - Burning River, Holy Moses and Dortmunder Gold - as well as a four pack of Nosferatu, going to bed at 4:00 AM and rising at 11:00), so I was moving a little slow. I get the bright idea to pull off in Erie, PA to find some guiseppe and get some gas. Bad fucking idea. To make a long story short, once we actually FOUND downtown Erie, we quite by accident stumbled on the lone Starbucks in town. We grabbed our coffee and left. So what was supposed to be a quick detour into Erie turned into a 2 hour "Ok, OK! HOW IN THE FUCK DO I GET OUT OF THIS TOWN?!?!?!?" adventure. We get to Buffalo, drop our shit off oat the hostel, and hightail it for Niagara Falls, NY.

We had read in a AAA book that Niagara Falls, NY had a Little Italy. That got my sister all excited, as she was in a pizza eating mood. Well, if Niagara Falls, NY has a Little Italy, it's so fucking small that we couldn't find it. We asked at the very pathetic souvenir shop that was located between the very pathetic putt putt course and the very pathetic Hard Rock Cafe with all the burned out marquee lights if she might know just where we could find some good pizza, and she said (I shit you not), "Pizza Hut." We took that as a sign to go to Canada.

For those of you who have not been to Niagara Falls (either side of the river), please let me paint a word picture for you: Niagara Falls, NY is to Niagara Falls, ON as a big, steamy pile of crap is to a nice, hot pizza directly out of the wood-fired oven. If you go to Niagara Falls, RUN ACROSS THE BRIDGE to Ontario as fast as you possibly can.

Anyway, as we're getting grilled by the incredibly hot Canadian border guardesses, my sister asks them "Is there any place around here to find good pizza?" Oddly enough, even the Canadian version of "The Man" has an opinion on that. So off we go into the paradise of neon and chaos that is Niagara Falls, Ontario in search of Antika Pizza. They've got great pizza, but their beer selection is a bit lacking. However, since it was Molson that bought out Coors, rather than the other way around, I decide to order a Canadian. Let me tell you, a BMC has never tasted so sweet.

Apperance: Yeah, it looks like a urine sample after I've had a gallon of water to drink, but it's what I expect.

Smell: Did someone say smell? I smell pizza, I don't smell beer (ok, not totally accurate. I smell a little yeast, and no hops at all).

Taste: Not nearly as bad as I remember, and to be honest it went down awfully smooth. So smooth, in fact, that I had another. Just your run of the mill, adjunct lager flavor. I don't know how to describe it other than that. Light malt body, a very faint hop chase near the end, and a yeasty finish that sits on your tongue.

Mouthfeel: A bit better than expected. Not nearly as thin as I recall. Maybe I'm just heady with delight at being across the border, and am actually able to see the falls, rather than trying to peek down their blouse from the NY side.

Drinkability: If I can drink a gallon of water in one sitting, I could nail a six pack of these without breaking a sweat. It's a decent enough beer for what it is. And you know, the trip to Niagara Falls wouldn't have been as good without them.
