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.

It's a good Canadian beer in Canada. The higher abv makes it better.

Not as cheap as genny or pbr... But good drinkable beer. I like my crafts but this might be the best tasting beer you don't have to talk about. So long as it's cold!

Outside of the craft beer world, this is my go to beer. Over 30 years. Maybe it's a hockey thing.

Clear, pale gold with a white head and respectable retention. Smells exclusively of sweet malts and red delicious apples, which, for the style, ain't bad. Tastes much the same; sweet and doughy, with no hops to speak of. Any semblance of balance is only provided by attenuation and carbonation. Not good, but you coul do a lot worse for this sort of thing.

Isn't the greatest and it smells like barley, but it's cheap.

Only good thing about ordering this is that you either 1. are not a college kid any more and want to relive some memories and order this or 2. want to say you drank something Canadian tonight.

Best thing about this beer is not it's taste, it's the great Canadian commercials they have about being Canadian. Oh Canada, I can't help but smile when I order one, knowing I've helped the Canadian economy, the moose and maple syrup up there.

A decent beer on a hot day, nothing special however.

A moderate pour from a 12 ounce twisty into a shaker pint produces a good inch of frothy white foam that dissipates quickly to a fairly sticky remnant. The beer is a well-carbonated pale ruddy golden.

Leafy hops and a bit of DMS are evident in the aroma. A refreshing grainy quality comes through in the flavor, with some herbal bitterness lingering on the tongue, and maybe just a touch of skunk. A frothy mouthfeel combined with a pleasant burpiness from the carbonation promote repeated sips.

There is nothing special about this beer, yet it is quite refreshing on a hot day and was very reasonably priced at about 10 bucks for a half-rack. It generally lacks the extreme skunkiness I’ve come to associate with some Canadian brews. I also like the fact that it’s actually still brewed in Canada, even though owned by MillerCoors.

I drank this in a bottle of 330 ml. The beer is easy to drink. As a lager, Molson Canadian has no sweetness. It tastes like hops and barley that have been lightened. As a result of that, it leaves you under the impression that you are eating a fruit that is neither bitter nor naturally sweet. It's somewhere between these two extremities. Do not expect any complexity in the taste. Overall, Molson Canadian is a decent beer I drank when I was introduced to beer in general.

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?
