Sketchy yellow body under a white foamy head. Reaks of skunk per usual. Phew! Tastes equally trustworthy, vaguest honeyish malt and some bitter hops.. overly carbonated. But these are great at Celtics games! I would not normally order Molson golden at a bar, but for some reason they work so well at sporting events and they are readily available.

Appearance Light yellow in color with some effervescence and a modest head, just like all the other Molsons that Ive had.
Smell The smoothness of the grain and lack of funk give this one a thumbs up.
Taste This one is lighter in flavor than the standard Canadian Lager and has a more pronounced sweetness at the finish.
Mouthfeel Lively carbonated and crisp with a slightly dry finish.
Drinkability This one is on par with the other Molsons that Ive had. They arent putting out anything stellar, but they are a small notch above the other macros.

12 oz green twist off bottle with no freshness date.
Appearance: Golden straw and very clear, thin foaming after pouring and dissipates to a ring of lace.
Smell: Corny, veggie and a hint of grassy malt. Clean but not much there.
Taste & Mouthfeel: Full mouth of smoothness in a light to moderate body. Light malt flavour, mild hopping and a twang of ale fermentation.
Notes: Plain tasting, bland. Could be refreshing if it was 100* F and it was ice cold but then I would not even be drinking it for the taste.

Pours a clear, light yellow body with a very small, white head that vanishes in seconds. No lacing.
Aroma is slightly sweetish with pale malt and faint, floral hops. No skunkiness.
Mouthfeel is light bodied and highly carbonated.
The taste is quite nice for a mainstream, Blonde ale. Very clean, and very simple. Slightly sweet maltiness is balanced well by a herbal, hops bitterness. No off flavors.
Nothing complex about this one, but it's a clean, easy drinking, well balanced ale that would make for an ideal, session or "lawnmower beer". Refreshing and thirst quenching, but don't expect a lot of flavor or any complexity. Very decent for a Canadian macro.

12 ouncer sampled. It poured very light, pissy yellow, very clear, meager bright white head, minor lacing left behind. Nose is vegetal, cabadgy in fact. This is a fairly flavorful blond ale, skunky notes, corn, grainy, chalky hops. Amazing to think this was "the good stuff" back in the day...Probably a decent very warm weather brew.

I always feel white-trashy when I drink this beer. It does taste good, especially ice-cold out of a cooler. My real question is how this is classified as an American Blonde. It looks like one; gold pour, big white head. The aroma is sweet and grainy, with a bit of floral hops. But the taste is a lager. Pale malt, sweet, and grainy. Nothing special, but not a blonde, in my opinion.

My beer of choice about 20 years ago, but I haven't had one in a long time. Perhaps the first time having one from a glass.
Pours from the bottle a pale straw yellow with a fizzy white head that bubbles up like soda and settles quickly down.
Aroma of some corny malt, a little butter, and a lot of skunky funk.
Watery and slick mouthfeel leads to a flavor of buttered corn, some fruity esters, and a fine peppery bite. Finishes a bit crisp, and mouthfeel becomes more full in the finish. Biscuity malt lingers, with some piney accents.
Interesting nostalgic trip, but I'm good on this one for a while.

Just a shade darker than pale straw yellow, absolutely no head retention, dissipates quicker than a paycheck at an indian casino. Grassy corn aroma, not terrible, mild skunk, not in the level of Euro lagers though, which is actually better from a guy who likes his green bottle skunk.
Not a bad taste actually, faint hop metallic bitterness, easy to drink, very light, no off flavors, small skunkiness. Lots of carbonation to give that spritzy vibe to it. Corn aroma did not lead to corn husk taste, which is nice. A decent hot weather pick, but they still charge too much for this stuff.

Clear dark yellow appearance, biggish head that clears to nothing in 20 seconds. No lacing in the pint glass. A blend of vague lemon and corn to the aroma, some tassel and pollen-like stuff going on. Taste is pretty stripped-down, a little bit of diacetyl and mild corn syrup, quite a bit of carbonation. Decent hop crispness late, not bad balance. The malts seem more at fault, this beer just doesn't generate a flavor profile. Can't really recommend this one.

A - Very pale straw color
S - Skunky. What is it with these Canadian beers and their skunky smell? I don't get how that's appealing.
T - Not bad, little skunky though not as bad as the smell. Decent tasting beer.
M - Pretty average light feel.
D- Good. i could have a few more of these. It's a pretty good tasting beer once you get past the skunkiness.
