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.

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.

A: Pours a clear bright yellow with just over 1 finger worth of foamy white head. Settles to a bit of a cap and left a decent amount of lacing.

S: Sweet grainy aroma with maybe some faint cooked veggies in the background.

T: Light grains with a grainy and cooked veggie after taste.

M: Medium to high carbonation with a light body.

O: It’s pretty similar to normal Canadian but has a few different tastes that aren’t necessarily for the better. The purpose of this beer is to get you drunk anyways so if you’re drinking this I don’t think you’re really looking for different tastes etc.

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.

Purchased as part of the Holiday gift set and drank it anyway. The pour was of a bright gold to almost copper color capped with a full white head showing off its full carbonation. The nose was big on sugary sweetness with slight acidity in background, solvent like. Flavor is light but sugary, malt liquor like, long cloying sweet finish. This tastes very much sweeter than the imported Canadian we get and has more fusels also.

--came in a cool looking small thin can, much like Red Bull. No freshness date found.
--poured an average color, maybe slightly darker than a normal lager due to the alcohol content. A nice head that quickly left.

This was nothing more than a marketing tool used by Molson. The size is made to be consummed quickly, because before you know it, the can is empty. The good thing is that it doesn't last long enough to get warm! It is best drunk from the can, to achieve the novelty, but that's all it really is...a novelty. Not much special about the taste.
Thx

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.

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.

This was my in my stocking this Christmas. It pours like a glass of ginger ale, with no real head. Graininess dominates the aroma. The flavor is sweet grainy malt, slightly more than the average macro. The carbonation is light (easier to shotgun I guess?). Really nothing more than a slightly stronger macro at a raised price.

Poured in a pint.

Appearance: gold plain and simple...1/4" white head.

Smell: light light hops.

Taste: dry hops, alcohol is pretty evident.

Mouth: medium, heavy not much to complain bout in this department.

Overall: fancy looking can, not a fancy beer. Just good enough to pass the time. Don't shy away from it, if you're a lager fan you might like it more than me. Salud.

Molson Canadian X

Pours a very pale yellow with a bone white head that does not last very long.Aroma of sweet cereal grains and buttery toffee. Not a ton of flavor, a flash of cereal grain, biscuit and very mild hop. Some buttery notes. Alittle alcohol. Not the greatest, but light for the ABV. Tastes like regular Molson, but cleaner and stronger. Mouthfeel is on the medium side of light bodied, moderate to low carbonation. Overall, this isn't alot of things, including terrible. This can has been sitting for a while (and reads Canadian X), but was eventually re-branded as Cold Shots. A Red Bull for drunks.

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.

The beer pours a pale gold color with a thick frothy white head that quickly fades to lacing. The aroma is average. It has a dry, pilsner malt and adjunct scent. It's light with a slight metallic aroma. The taste is horrible. It has a skunky, adjunxt laden flavor that 's dry as a bone and devoid of beer character. The mouthfeel is average. It is a low bodied beer with good carbonation. This is a forgettable brew. I get the whole "cold shot" marketing. The only way to drink these are to slam em' cold.

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.
