12 oz. bottle poured into a pilsner glass.

Appearance: Pours a clear straw yellow with a two finger white head. Heavy lacing. Looks good in the glass.

Aroma: Very clean, crisp smell with some light toast and very faint malt. Also a whiff of corn.

Taste: Finding it hard to believe there isn't a lot of corn in there. It's clean and crisp, but there's definitely some corny funk.

Mouthfeel: Watery and light.

Overall: Molson kind of lacks the charm of High Life and Pabst, but it's also much better than Budweiser and not appreciably worse than Heineken. As multinational macro lagers go, it's midrange. There's worse stuff to drink while watching hockey (eh), but it's very so-so.

This has potential as a Pilsner like maltiness meets a rye like grain flavor meets slight bitterness and cracker dryness. It has a real ease of drinkability and it's not too harsh, rather crisp actually. There's just a weakness and a lack of assertiveness that ranks it below average.

Poured into a glass.

A - Gold straw. Two inch head goes quickly but has retention the whole time. Nice speckled lacing.

S - Grains, corn, grass, some light malt.

T - Starts with light hops, grains and corn. Finishes sweet with grass and more light hops.

M- Light

O - Top notch adjunct lager. Very refreshing and tasty! I didn't buy this for a while because I was wary of the dreaded green bottle. Six beers in and no skunk. Go get some.
