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.

This is one of the better macro lagers. It is crisp, but is limited on taste but at least there is a hint of taste unlike other mass produced beer. For those with allergies to some of the preservatives commonly found in macro beers....this beer has no preservatives. This beer is best to drink while watching hockey. I have no idea why this is the case, it just is.

This is very crisp, very clean in its feel and flavor and actually tops Molson Canadian, despite it being an adjunct. The adjuncts are not obvious and flavor tends to a more Pilsner malt. The corn seems absent, the rice more for smoothness. The flavor is crackery malt with and easy dry crispness.

Pours clear, light golden color. A thin, course head that dissipates completely in a matter of seconds. No lacing. A sweet aroma and citrusy flavor. Clean finish, almost no aftertaste. A very refreshing brew, even though it lacks character.

Served very cold in a pint glass.
Appearance: Straw colour with a reasonable head and some lacing.
Smell: Rice and yeast are most prominent. Slightly astringent (and no, it was not skunked).
Taste: Has a corn sweetness to it. Rice and yeast are also present, as is a definite astringent flavour. Very slight bitterness on finish. Moderate body.
Overall: A poor beer. It is drinkable if you get it really cold, but if it heats up at all I toss it. Way too much corn and rice, but the real kicker is the astringent flavour that is always present.
