Eye: This is a really good looking beer, especially given that it is a macro, and generally macros don't need to look good because 90% of the time they are drunk right out of bottle or can. Body is a straw gold and clear. Lively carbonation supports a nice looking head-white with good lacing and excellent retention. Really this is a good looking beer, it looks better than many of the craft/micro brews I've tried.
Nose: This beer actually has the best nose I've ever smelt from a macro. I'm getting a nice sweet malt aroma with a tad of spiciness. I can also detect a bit of adjunct in there, maybe some rice. All in all though, this is prolly the best smelling one I've had to date....I'm not turned off by this beer's aroma when it is poured into a glass, it doesn't smell foul like many other macros.
Tongue: This beer is very much different than what I expected it to be. It is packed with malt flavor, sweet malts, and a bit of fruitiness (apple) are what I get from this beer. Hops are here in just enough amounts to balance the beer-a bit spicy, well at least thats the best way to describe them. Reminds me of a Pils/Euro Pale Lager/Munich Helles. Very good, worth a try. The overall taste/flavor is a bit fleeting, but what is there, for the time it lasts is pretty good.
Edit: after a bit, I'm almost to the bottom of the glass, that apple character seems to get annoying. I think that it may be a flaw in this beer, I haven't drank too many lagers with that sort of flavor. Still a quality beer though... tough to make a call on this one...lots of good things, few bad things.
Mouthfeel and Drinkability: When this beer first hit my lips I was very surprised-this beer is full bodied!(well more full bodied than I expected at least-in terms of overall "beer styles" I'd say it has more of a medium-light body, but for the style it is much fuller than expected.) It finishes with a slightly drying finish. Carbonation is just right, medium levels give this beer a nice crisp, clean, and biting refreshment that one doesn't normally find in a macro. This is a beer that I'd definitely drink again, it is the best offering, in the category of a pale lager, that I've ever had from BMC(to date). If you have a chance to try this beer I highly recommend it, it will surprise you I think, it definitely surprised me.

Pours a light golden with a thin white head. Good retention and pleanty of lacing. Aroma is of grain,and some hints of fruity grassy hops. Body is light andf very carbonated. Taste is of malty grains up front with a bit of hop in the finish. Refreshing. Not bad for what it is.

First off, this beer is a malt beverage, says it right on the label. I bring this up because malt beverages are their own category. In my opinion, this style is the absolute worst style in the beer universe.
App. Slightly deep than your average pilsner. Actually had nice huge retention.
S&T surprisingly nice, bananas and yeasty maltness. Not bad considering the time of night I discovered it. Bud Light on the other side. Maybe that's why my #c reviews are higher.
Not a bad beer in a pinch.... and being a malt.

Crystal clear, pale amber with a fine, off-white cap. Good head retention with spotty/streaky lacing. Grainy cereal aroma, fruity esters and hops. Low bitterness, a bit of caramel and grainy malt, fairly fruity. Light bodied with medium/high carbonation, a bit drying. Not bad and fairly good for a macro beer. One of the better Molson products I've had.

This beer poured a coppery yellow with a thin single-finger head that lingered for a little while. The smell is a little subtle with some malt and perhaps some cereal. The taste is almost all malts with a hint hops and a little alcohol on the back end. The mouthfeel is thicker than I expected from a malt liquor with a moderate amount of carbonation. This is a pretty drinkable beer, that would likely grow progressively tastier as the night went on. Not something I would normally drink for pleasure, but not a bad choice if it's going to be one of those nights.

Poured out a clear golden color with a foamy white head. The nose is subtle, slight honey notes, tiny bit of malt. The taste was nearly nonexistent, bit o honey, bit of spice. The mouthfeel was bright and bubbly, and being a close second cousin to mineral water, was amazingly and highly drinkable.

A: Medium golden color that's crystal clear, medium sized head of frothy white bubbly foam. Decent head retention. Medium level of carbonation, no lacing.
S: Rich aroma of malty goodness mixed with buttery toasted bread and mild grains. Minimal hop presence. Slightly boozy. Not bad.
T: Medium bodied filler malts and grain, with a mild buttery character. Minor hints of hops, with a touch of alcohol. Fair.
M: More density here than most macro brews. Mild carbonation. Slightly slick and sharp. Easy drinking.
D: Not bad. I could do this on a summer day when i'm looking for something with a touch more kick. Worth a try.
Notes: Special thanks goes out to biegaman for the 12 oz. bottle.
