look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

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.

250ml can shotgunned through nostril 23/10/11

A well I dumped it into a tulip for fun and it has a bright golden yellow body with decent carbonation and a short lived two finger head that fizzes like cola and leaves no lace

S candied corn and cooked veggie notes with a little booze

T sweet malt with a little wet hay but just a bad boozy chemical flavor that I could live without

M foul aftertaste and just hard to choke down

O nasty stuff that I don't recommend unless you have a drinking contest to lose

I remember when these little things had a target on the bottom side of the can for shot-gunning. I advise you keep this in you mouth for as little time as possible, perhaps I should have slayed it in 2 seconds flat just for effect

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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

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.

k cold shots are good for getting juiced off of. Cause they go down quickly and smoothly. but they taste awful.
so if you dont care about taste and just wanna get drunk fast then by all means shoot these little 250 ml guys.I have to say i really like the can and aerodynamic design for sliding down your throat.

3.28/5  rDev +45.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

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.

How could you resist buying a crud beer in a 8.5 oz Red Bull can for $0.99?...Well, it sucked tailpipe, just about.

Basically, it's a marginally hazy, largely fizz-limp liquid - a yellowy-orange gold, not unlike new motor oil. "Baked" and "cornbread" are what comes to mind when pondering the scent. Hops? Thought I picked up the faintest hint of them - likely I was hallucinating. Many flavors previously un-encountered: deep-fried plain donut, sulfury matchhead, used cooking oil (aftertaste), grass/dirt clump, and the aforementioned cornbread. While the appearance suggests a peculiar deficiency in carbonation, the belting out of a few violent burps suggest otherwise. It's nearly cardboard dry on the bed of the tongue and a musty tang (or vice-versa) lays at its sides. I don't even think I could make it through enough of these to catch a buzz. Lousy.

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.

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.

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.
