Presentation: It was poured from a slim 8.5oz can into a pint glass. A freshness date is printed on the bottom of the can. The can also has the abv listed at 6%.

Appearance: The body has a pure golden color with great clarity and some visible carbonation. From the pour it makes a tall white head of foam. This quickly settles down to a wisp thin film which make some slick spotty lacing.

Smell: As I had expected it has a light aroma with a pale biscuity malt and very faint grassy hops.

Taste/Palate: The base is a pale malt with a plain biscuity and saltine cracker like character. It has a dry overall taste with very light hop flavor and bitterness. The palate has a smooth almost creamy texture with soft carbonation.

Notes: For the style its average. It's not really exciting but it is clean and the 8.5oz can is easy to put down quickly.

a friend had these in his fridge, so they were 'free'...

A: Pale yellow, thin looking with a tiny, fade fast head.

S: sweet with some metalic grains in there.

T: not good. tastes like wheat mixed with water that's been filtered through a bag of bolts.

M: surprisingly the high point for me, it was a bit thicker than i'd expected.

D: because it's small, it's gone fast.

Notes: there are plenty of better beers that are 6.0% for a similar price point that far surpass this beer and you get a 'full size' for the price, not some Red Bull can.

only purposes i feel this beer serves is for sneaking in to venues or going for a "i drank 24 beer in a night" goal for lightweights, which isn't impressive here anyway, as pounding through a 24 full size of 5.5% is fairly common place, hehe.

250ml of 'Amped Up' Canadian taste. Hmmm. 20% more booze, but ~27% less volume, per container. I remember buying this when it was new, and wondering why I was being tempted and coddled, at the same time, as a Canadian beer drinker...now that seems so quaint...

This beer pours a slightly hazy pale golden hue, with tons of foamy white head, which settles soon enough, leaving some splotchy lace around the glass. It smells of bready, starchy grain, a bit of alcohol warmth, and weedy hops. The taste is sweet, grainy white malt, and a wee bit of grassiness. None too complex. The carbonation is fairly sedate for its ilk, the body a smidgen heavier that the standard Canadian, and really quite smooth. It finishes dry, soft, and warm. Nothing else has the temerity to linger, apparently.

Well, this is hard to believe, but I dislike this way less that when I first drank it, B.B.A. (Before Beer Advocacy). An even, if generally bland, strong Canadian macro lager.

Thanks korguy123 for this one...I think?

Poured into an Evolution tasting glass, perfect size!

A: Clear, light yellow in color, small head formed, but gone quickly.

S: Wheat, slightly metallic, corn

T: Not terrible..heavier on grain, slightly sweet. Little bit of alcohol

M/D: Has a bigger body than expect (i.e. compared to most adjunct lagers). Not a bad beer for its intended purpose.

3.18/5  rDev +40.7%

Poured from an 8.5 oz. can. Has a golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is very mild, some malts. Taste is of malts and a touch of corn. Not a lot going on here. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and is very drinkable. Overall this is a mediocre beer.

I've never had this, but it is a staple of teenagers who want to get drunk quick. The tiny can is a little bit of a laugh, but I guess it's all part of the image.

It looks just like any other lager: pale golden colour (maybe a bit too pale), and a thin foamy head. Lots of bubbles.

Smells faintly of wet corn, and not much else.

The taste is fairly grainy, with an adjuncty taste very noticible. The alcohol is also a little apparent towards the end. The mouthfeel is a bit heavier than normal for this kind of beer, but it lends itself well to the slight toasty malt notes. Fairly average, but the alcohol takes away from it a bit.

Overall, this isn't as horrible as I expected. It definitely not as bad as I expected, but not great. I see why the kids drink this.

Most interesting thing about this product is its packaging...comes in a tall, thin "pony" like can with contents of 250 ml.
Everything about this brew is sub par but marginally.
Nice colour, short of crown..aroma lightly of yeast and the taste is on the sweet side of well balanced.
Limited carbonation and weak bodied.
Find myself wondering "why"...is it the ABV they hope might promote sales? This product deserves to be consumed with a paper bag wrapper....but where to find a bag so small.
Geez!

2.91/5  rDev +28.8%

250 mL can from a 4-pack picked up at the LCBO; served ice cold. I've had this many times over the years, though not nearly as frequently as standard-issue, run-of-the-mill Canadian. I guess today is the day where I finally become bored/alcoholic enough to drink a can alone so that I can review it?

Pours a familiar pale yellow colour, topped with a half-finger of fizzy, bone-white head that quickly evaporates. A few scattered strands of lacing remain. I can't really blame them for not putting effort into making this look good; normal people who are not giant dorks just drink this from the can, anyway. The aroma is pretty neutral, and I can't really think of any descriptors to use here other than vaguely corny and sweet. At least it's too mild to be off-putting.

Fortunately, the same notion applies to the flavour. While this lager offers nothing outside of the usual, bland adjunct lager tropes - notes of corn husk, boiled vegetables, grainy malts and cardboard - these features are present in surprisingly well-balanced proportions. While I would not describe the flavour as appealing, it manages to avoid my main gripes with this sort of beer: syrupy sweetness, ethanol heat, and even the off-flavours are kept to a minimum. Light-bodied and watery, with restrained carbonation compared to most adjunct lagers, offering only a slight bite. Very easy to drink quickly, so mission accomplished I guess - that was probably the only objective to begin with.

Final Grade: 2.91, a C grade. For a 6.0% macro lager intended primarily for irresponsibly rapid consumption, these Molson Cold Shots honestly aren't that bad. No, they don't taste great, and yes, if push came to shove there are plenty of domestic pale lagers I'd pick long before this one (forgetting about imports and craft stuff entirely). But four of these cans will give you a good buzz for a very low price, and you don't even need to worry about gagging on anything - perhaps except the shrivelled remnants of your pride.

Had these while at the Carnivale de Quebec. They rock being able to put a 6 pack in your jacket pockets for "walking around beer" But realistically, it's Molson Canadian jacked up a bit and slammed into a small can. If you are trying to get drunk then this is the ticket, if you are looking for a good beer to enjoy and drink responsibly, then try anything else.

2.83/5  rDev +25.2%

Pale yellow appearance with minimal foamy head. Has a sweet, corn smell with a hint of grain.

Taste is almost entirely wheat and sweetness. Picked up a slight hint of grass and malt. The taste starts off strong but quickly wears off. Light with bad carbonation, aftertaste is sweet and boozy.

This is a weird beer that is not meant to be savored and seems like a training beer for shotgunning or drinking games. If your drinking it for that purpose, there are better beers.

Oops! I CAN't remember who sent me this one, but I got one of the slim "CANadian X" CANs in a CANQuest trade and tonight is Molson CANadian CAN Night at Chez Wood, so this is the next entrant in the journey.

A note to Molson: When you put "Xplicit Taste" on the CAN, you really set up your consumers' expectations. Little package, big head. 8.5 Fl. Oz. (250 ml), but two rocky, bone white fingers' worth of head with extremely low retention. Do NOT look away following the pour or you will miss it. Color was a deep golden-yellow with NE-quality clarity. Nose had an odd sharpness, not quite pine-like, but along the lines of a cleaning agent, not hops. Pine-Sol! I do not consider this a good thing. Mouthfeel was very smooth with a basic lager sweetness on the tongue. Aha! Now I understand what others were referring to as to its drinkability. It would be quite simple to just crack open a succession of these puppies and suck them down, awaiting the occurrence of the magic. Me, I was feeling less than magical halfway into it. It was not as sickeningly sweet as some high gravity adjunct lagers that I have consumed in this quest, but I could feel a drying of my brain as I drank it. Hangover City, baby! Finish left me craving a beer.
