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.

First had: a can somewhere

Pours a pale golden-yellow, fizzy, with a quickly-dissipating finger or two of bubbly white head. Smell of old grains, sweet corn, and similar taste, with plenty of funk and skunk. Stale, rotten garbage aftertaste. Very light and very undrinkable. Probably worse than most US adjunct beers. The Ice is slightly better.

look: 1.5 | smell: 1 | taste: 1 | feel: 1 | overall: 1.5

Canadian always gives me a chuckle - but when the chuckling's done, I just want a Guinness and to be done with it.

A - Straw-yellow, same old appearance as any other cheap lager.

S - Typical of a lager of its type. Faint, metallic.

T - Like licking a dirty nickel, with a horrid aftertaste of Highliner fish sticks gone off. Metallic, nasty, cheap.

M - Like a pop.

Overall - One of my most despised beers of all time. Seriously, where the hell does Molson get off with the brewed with Canadian water gimmick? That could be anything - water from the sewers, water from Lake Athabasca, water from the tap?

Pass.

How this beer has gained the popularity of the vast Canadian population puzzles me. It also is a strong indicator that the vast population has very low standards for quality of beer and quality of taste. This is one of the worst beers I have tasted. The appearance is typical of mass produced lagers, golden yellow color. The smell is terrible, perhaps even a stale smell. The taste is equally as poor as the smell. My first thoughts are that this is a very cheap beer. The after taste reinforces the cheap impression. Not fragrant, and nor it is calling me to take additional sips, let alone drink it. Unfortunately, when you are at any public even in Canada, you choices are extremely limited, and all of which do not allow you to get a descent beer. Everything served is mass produced swill. The carbonation of this beer is very much like soda-pop, again proving more evident of a cheap, low quality beer. The foam dissipates very quickly. I say foam, because it can hardly be said that it was a head. Also disappointing, but following suit to beer mass production.

In addition to my overall rating of this beer being very poor, cheap and low quality I also want to make mention that after drinking this Molson product it is also appears that it is loaded with preservatives. Again, another reason why I choose to avoid low quality products such as this. A very disappointing experience all in all, and has reinforced why I generally avoid mass produced Canadian beer products.

So it begins; my first review. It had to be Canadian: the beer of my inebriated youth. Grade 8 (1983) and paranoid of the cops, the first beer we managed to get a stranger to buy and drink piss warm in the woods behind the school. For sheer quantity this is probably the beer I have consumed the most of and unless I slip into a past absurd level of consumption it will retain that dubious honour. But it’s been a while.

It was fitting then that me & CANAD (\CAN-ad\) should get reacquainted at an open air Iron Maiden concert a few weeks back (Molson Ampitheatre, Torona, Ontario). RUN TO THE HILLS! There wasn’t much choice in the matter. Serving Type: draft in a very large plastic cup not unlike a Big Gulp. Smell: didn’t. Taste: soapy astringent suds, unclean lines and not as cold as it ought to have been. Mouthfeel: didn’t let it linger to get the feel. Understand I was not expecting so much, but it oozed under the bar somehow. I did finish it however.

Serving type: on-tap
