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

Pours a dark gold with a thin lacing of loose, bubbly head that quickly fades away. The smell is sweet and grainy. The flavor is sweet, grainy, and slightly bitter. The alcohol is evident, adding warmth, body, and a little spiciness. The mouthfeel is medium bodied, crisp, warm, and smooth.

For malt liquor this isn't bad. It's got flavor and body, but nothing too special. There aren't any of the off notes one may expect from the style. Rarely ever do I pick up this style, but this would be my go-to if I did.

Beautiful black can pours a deep copper color with fluffy white head. Aroma of burnt corn, malt extract, and a bit of bitter hop. Flavor follows with heavy malts for the style--actually rather flavorful--and a relatively smooth finish. This one is a light-medium on the palate with medium-high carbonation. Overall, this wasn't very good and yet was drinkable enough to put it above others in the style. High class college beer here.

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

Poured a half inch white head of medium life. The body is a clear straw yellow verging on golden. It smells of malt and grass. The taste mirrors the smell and there's a little dried fruit in the aftertaste. I've seen a few refer to this as boozy and I'd agree.

But here's the thing folks. This is basically BMC but stepped up in intensity in all categories. How many times have beer enthusiasts vented on BMCs for being watering, mild, simple, etc? Well here's one that tries to rectify and frankly people are scoring it lower than those BMCs they'd call guilty and give a C to. Not really fair. And boozy doesn't bother people when it's from Europe, or an American craft brew. In fact I wonder if you relabelled this bottle with something fancy and craftlike if people in a blind taste test would say the opposite. So, you don't have to love this beer, I don't love it either, but to be fair you probably shouldn't call this bad or below average and still give a regular Molson an average.

Pours a clean deep yellow color with a white head. In the aroma, small dryness, but that's about it. In the taste, sweet to dry small malt and a small fruity alcohol. A smooth and medium bodied mouthfeel, with a small dry fruity alcohol like aftertaste. Light flavor and aroma, but a bit boozy nonetheless.

This and Labatt Bleue were what i started drinking, back when it was available in Quebec and before discovering Unibroue.

Poured from a 12oz. bottle.

Appearance: A very pale, yellow body with a surprisingly thick white head that actually clings to the glass.

Smell: Alcohol infused corn and maybe a hint of fruit but that's a stretch. Strong for all the wrong reasons.

Taste: Ugh, that lacquer-like flavor of malt liquor. Strong but not too overpowering like others. Still not entirely pleasant.

Mouthfeel: Some spicy bitterness that feels fake is is probably from the alcohol burn.

Overall: Actually looked decent but it was all downhill from there. Enough for a review and i could already feel a headache creeping up.

This beer pours a clear gold with no head or lace. It seems to darken a bit as it warms. The aroma is of corn and bread crust. The flavor has notes of honey, sweet corn, and a slight hop snap, bland. The mouthfeel is light. Molson XXX is an acceptable beer, slightly recommended.
