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.

Another fresh market mix a six pick up....just because it was there.

Pours a very clear light golden color. Some foam starts, but certainly settles out. Beer smell, just like any macro adjunct. Corn too.

Light clean crisp mild taste. Nary a hope to be found. Taste drops off at the end. Easy drinker, better than US macros. But not remarkable.

2.38/5  rDev -15.3%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

A: Pours a clear yellow with a thin, creamy white head. Carbonation is very apparent.

S: Very neutral on the nose, with aromas of straw, hay, grass, and lemon most apparent.

T: Notes of minerals, lemon, grass, hay, straw, and grain are present on the palate. The finish is extremely clipped with lemon and straw notes.

M: Light bodied and very dry. Carbonation is spritzy and a tad harsh. This lager has a bit of a coarse, grainy feel to it that makes it difficult to drink.

O: This is a mediocre pale lager, one that I would only consume if I had no other options. It's better than many other mainstream lagers, though. Still, there are better options out there and there's no point in wasting time on beers like this.

Consumed 11/27
Poured in to a pilsner glass

A: This beer pours a crystal clear, pale yellow with a two finger of bone white head. Head recedes at a moderate pace and leaves some wispy lacing on the glass.

S: Nose is heavy on the grain side with some caramel malt presence.

T: Taste starts with a bit of a earthy flavoring before total grain and caramel malts take over. The typical adjunct tastes are present but far more sweet than your BMC products.

M: Lighter side of medium body, moderate carbonation, crisp and clean feel.

O: Goes down ok, mildly tasty, not filling, expected kick, for the style - a nice adaptation of the style, a decent alternative to BMC products, but on an every day basis, not a beer that I would seek out.
