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.

On tap at a bar over by North Station. Served in a regular pint glass. Bright yellow colored body. Fluffy foamy white head, and lots of carbonation. Admittedly a decent looking lager. Smell was absent. Taste was mostly just a jumble of adjunct product flavors. Mouthfeel was on the crisp side, and it was fairly smooth. It's not a bad beer, and it goes down fairly easily. The only reason I ordered it was that I hadn't had a Molson in years. So, now I have, and I probably won't again anytime soon. It's a hockey arena cheap-o plastic cup beer, and nothing more.

Serving type: on-tap

Decent head at first pour but settles very quickly.

Smell: Very light & mild hop aroma. Other than that there is not much to it.

Taste: Very Light bodied but clean and smooth. Slight and I mean a slight hop taste. Not much taste or flavor. Typical lager like Miller or Bud
Good for days when you know you will drink more than you should

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.

2.4/5  rDev -15.2%
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.
