I was at the store and saw a twelve-pack of Molson Canadian Lager going for $10.99, 16 oz. bottles. Seemed like a good deal, so I went for it.

Appearance: Yep.

Smell: Good solid macrobrew smell, with no distinguishing features. For some reason I expected it to have a skunky smell like Moosehead Lager, but it didn't.

Taste: Straight-up North American lager taste, with no distractions -- no fruit flavors, no honey, no chocolate, no pink umbrellas.

Mouthfeel: Medium body, with just the right amount of carbonation.

Drinkability: Excellent.

Overall: This is a great beer, as good as or better than any of the similarly-priced BMC products (Bud, MGD, or Coors Original). Highly recommended.

My second favorite beer. I can't believe these reviews, this is one of the greatest beers ever made. If you love beer (especially canadian beer) then you are going to love molson canadian. This is a great beer, I highly recommend it. If I had the money I would buy this beer everytime, its that good. Pours a nice golden colour, with a frothy head. Molson canadian+buffalo pizza=bliss

My friend hates American beer and only drinks imports. He recommended this to me and I LOVE IT!!

A:Yellow with a head that takes a while to "foam down"

S: Not a very strong scent that I've noticed to this beer, maybe a little...very little hoppy smell.

T: My favorite of the import beers; and best tasting in my opinion. It tastes hoppy like a beer should but has a "I am not drinking" no bloat feeling like Miller Lite which is awesome in my book

M: Crisp, refreshing, light and a bit of carbonation.

D: Its a winner but be careful this beer is a creeper and will knock you on your ass.

Very good Canadian beer. Looks good. Smell of wonderful hops and the head isn't bad on this beer. Taste of golden hops that is crisp, clean and refreshing. Mouthful has the same rating see taste. Drinkability is wonderful could drink a good amount of beer with this brand. By far the best Canadian beer out there.

I found this to be an exceptional lager beer. I especially enjoyed its taste and drinkability. It is a far suerior product to those watered down versions put out by Bush, Bud, or Bud Light and - at a significantly lower price per bottle I might add. I will make it a point to always keep some on hand (for myself if no one else).

Molson is one of my favorite beers. Canadian beer, this one especially, has an exceptional smell and taste to it. When I am not drinking a heavy, dark beer, this is my favorite beer. Whether you drink it out of a bottle or can, Molson Canadian Lagar will always taste great.

Reviewing as I'm drinking...

Appearance: No need to pour this bad boy. I know this beer well!

Smell: Smell of light grain and grassy hops.

Taste: Smooth grain, crisp carbonation, and a clean and crisp sweet-grassy finish.

Drinkabilty: Superior to all American Macros. Open 'Em Up...Drink 'Em Down!

I am a lover of local New England Micros like Long Trail and Magic Hat, and love the Sam Adams line. I also love Hoegaarden, Bass, and Duvel, but when it comes time to go back to basics, this is the beer I reach for. Like an old friend, it never lets you down. From the land of Hockey comes this beer that is Cold, Crisp, and Refreshing! Drink one while watching your favorite NHL team..it just feels right,eh?
