Molson Canadian. The flagship beer of corporate Canada. Only sampled when choices are limited. A pale lager with very little distinction. Pours well and looks appealing, but leaves much to be desired. Often is accompanied with a borderline unpleasant lingering on the palate. Tastes much better when you have the distinct pleasure of buying them at $8 a piece in plastic cups at hockey games...

Poured from a can into a lager glass. Pours a medium golden color, With very little head and lots of bubbles continuing to rise to the top even well into drinking the beer. Leaves trace amounts of lacing. Pretty average for the style. Smells strongly of wet bread with some rice grains and nothing else. Once again, average of the style. The taste is filled with stale bread and skunkiness, Perhaps SLIGHTLY better than your average AAL, But not by much. The mouthfeel follows the taste, But with tons of carbonation and a very dry finish

Poured into a Beck's pils glass. 24 oz. can.

2.0 A: Clear faint yellow color. Three fingers of foamy white head. Retention is below average for the style and little lacing is left.

1.5 S: Dry, almost musky graininess. Light white rice component. Nothing much else going on.

1.5 T: Dry graininess. So incredibly bland, even for the style. Not even the sickly sweet corn flavor that many have.

2.0 M: Light body. Overcarbonated. Not creamy nor smooth.

1.5 D: Another terrible example of a terrible style.
