Everybody here is reviewing this from the wrong perspective. This is not meant to go toe to toe with the latest from Stone or Great Divide. This is a relatively inexpensive beer with a twist top that you knock back with friends while the game is on, or while you're lighting the grill. It's great on a hot day and a good beer to keep in your fridge when you want something lighter that you don't really have to think about, but at the same time it is worlds better than Budweiser, regular Molson Canadian, and other adjuncts.

It does have a slightly sweet note across the tongue and a mild sulfur-ish back note, but I personally like it and think it has character. It's not overwhelming, it's just a pleasant easy drinker. Carbonation is there but not overwhelming. Finish is crisp enough to notice.

I have tried many American adjuncts and don't enjoy anything from A-B. I recently drain poured a Miller Fortune. Coors Light offends me. But I am glad to say that I discovered Molson Golden and will be keeping it around as a go-to for when I want to enjoy a neutral beer that doesn't pull me to any extreme. Sometimes you want an IPA or an imperial stout, but sometimes you just want "a beer" to kick back with. This is that beer. If you understand what I mean by that then I recommend giving this a shot.
