3.8/5 rDev +51.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
Poured from a 25.4 ounce can into a beer glass.
Appearance: The best feature of this beer is the head, hands down. Thick, yet airy, like a cumulus cloud. Dimples slowly down to meet the slightly darkened straw colored beer. Medium carbonation is visible. Not bad from the get-go.
Smell: Fresh popcorn, faint bitter hop aromas, very light malt base. Only a touch of alcohol is present in the nose. In that it is NOT unpleasant, I give it just a touch above average.
Taste/Mouthfeel: For a malt liquor, there's a lot of good flavor here. Beer starts out crisply, with some initial bitterness. As the beer warms on the tongue, the malt actually comes through with some subtle sweetness, almost a melon-like quality. Texture becomes slightly chewy, allowing for the flavor to be released. Aftertaste is almost non-existent, which I have found to be a positive quality with most malt liquors.
Drinkability: Cold, it's a great malt liquor. I'm not so sure how I would feel about it served at room temperature...so I won't wait too long to finish this brew.
Nice job Molson for making a decent Malt Liquor...a style renowned for its inability to achieve in taste what it achieves in ABV.
Serving type: can
