Cute 250ml Kiddy cans ( hide ‘em in yer jeans from teacher)…noxious sweet kiddy taste (Hides the alcohol well that you intend to get gooned on)_….seems like another winning marketing device for Molson who have staked out the “kiddy” market for their own.

Nothing special or note worthy about this beverage (I say beverage because it has as little in common with real beer as a soft drink) with the exception of warnings on the can to serve extremely chilled…..I can see my gag reflex kicking in if I had to drink this Popsicle-sweet green beer at room temp. Bland pale yellow appeance..no head or aromas to speak of and a sweet corn taste devoid of hops with an indescribably annoying sweet after taste (corn syrup mixed with stale chip oil is the closest I can come in description)

The typical mega brewer let down in the taste department is not the real story here. I think the mindset behind the kiddy kan (250ml) the 6% ABV and the 4-pack is a priceless statement on the devolution of mass Canadian beer marketing politics. They obviously see the kiddies (teens and arrested development twenty-somethings as the main market for their mass produced slop but they must salve their federal nannies who pay lip service to the tragedy of teen addictions and auto deaths (Yet the feds profit handsomely from the arrangement via booze tax and monopoly alcohol sales) So they show “good corporate citizenship” by packaging their little kiddy alcohol bombers in small 2 gulp cans and 4-packs (and sell more units for teens hungry to get gooned on this wobbly pop)……classic modern Canadian compromise of a once proud brewing tradition.

If you guzzle 8 of these buzz bombs before the Averil concert try not to yak on your crew of fall off something high or wet the bed when you pass out….let’s be careful eh?…drink a lot but don’t blame us eh?

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.
