Molson 67 looks like a beer with less calories - less of everything for that matter. It is so markedly pale as to have virtually no colour at all on some angles. Despite lively bubbles it fails to support any kind of head. It looks anorexic; if it were your friend you'd be concerned for its health.

Molson can spend all the money in the world to advertise and market each of their brands differently, but so long as they keep using inferior ingredients they'll all smell the same. And not even the cleverest commercial or slogan ever conceived will make them smell good. This may have half the calories but it has every bit the foul stench.

Indeed, like most of this brewery's beers, there's little of anything tasteful or notably "beer-like" about it; bubbles and water are obvious but malt and hops are imperceptible. It's no surprise that this drinks like a combination of corn syrup and pool water; after all, it is loaded with industrial (possibly chemical) adjuncts and produced on a massive, highly mechanized scale.

Let's be clear though: the magnitude of a brewery's operations is not what affects quality; in fact, larger operations tend to be more consistent and have far better quality control. Molson, however, is not in the business of making good beer - they're in the business of selling a lot of beer. And when this is the priority it's no surprise the products taste like watered-down HFCS.

The only thing that makes Molson 67 halfway swallowable is that, true to theme, it has much less of that artificially sweet, off-putting, corn syrup-like flavour than standard strength lagers of equivalent nature. Some, however, will feel the diluted profile is a detriment. It didn't have to be that way; alcohol and flavour are not necessarily proportional. I've had plenty of delicious and characterful beers in the 3% range - this, however, is not one of them.

If you’re holding your breath waiting for Molson to make a good beer, be prepared to turn blue in the face and die. Unlike their chief rival, Labatt, who actually took the hint when their profits started diminishing and responded with the respectable Alexander Keith Hop Series, Molson seems content chasing one fad after another and spending all their resources on marketing rather than offering a half-decent product.

look: 4.25 | smell: 2.25 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

473 mL can picked up at TBS; served well chilled. I had this a few years back - and by 'had', I mean an agent left a bunch of free samples behind at the liquor store I used to work at, which was around the time that this beer was initially being launched. As I chugged the contents of a single ice cold bottle just prior to clocking in for my shift, I was pretty sure it was the wateriest, most flavourless beer I'd ever had - and unsurprisingly, I haven't been inclined to return to it until now, when a lack of alternatives has left me scraping the bottom of the barrel.

Pours a clear, pale straw yellow colour, topped with one finger's worth of soapy bone-white head. Very active carbonation; streams of bubbles constantly rush to the surface, reinforcing the head for at least a few minutes before it finally recedes into a thin cap and collar. Lots of lacing, too - one of the better-looking light beers I've had in recent memory. It has that generic 'cheap yellow lager' aroma, with no real distinguishing traits to speak of... corn husk, a little grainy with some vaguely sweet features, and not much else. Typical of the style.

Weak, diluted flavour, but not quite as tasteless as some of the other 'low cal' lagers I've tried in the past. There's a light brushing of grainy malts and corn that vanishes from the palate almost as quickly as it appears. No real wheat malt presence (the label mentions both barley and wheat), and no real aftertaste - just some light malts, carbonation, and then it's gone. Thin-bodied and very watery, with heavy carbonation levels that give this brew a spritzy, lively feel in the mouth.

Final Grade: 2.59, a forgettable C-. A re-tasting of Molson Canadian 67 hasn't changed my opinion much - this is still an exceptionally watery, bland lager - but compared to certain other low-calorie light lagers (e.g. Sleeman Clear or Michelob Ultra), this one at least resembles an actual beer, so I can't grade it too harshly. These low-cal lagers aren't brewed for the average BA; they are brewed for calorie-counting women and people who don't like the taste of beer. Seen through the context of those goggles, this is at least a decent light lager, but there's no reason that anyone who falls outside of those categories really needs to bother with this.

Bottle: Poured a pale golden yellow color beer with a small bubbly head. Aroma is bland with light adjunct notes. Taste is one of the most bland I have ever tasted with almost zero taste and light adjunct notes. Body is super light with soda-like carbonation. Wow talk about a beer not tasting like much at all.

2.1/5  rDev +15.4%
look: 2 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5

Appearance: It has a pale yellow color to it. It has a half inch white head (after a heavy poor) that dies down really fast and leaves minimal lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitly give out hints of sweet grains and corn.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has a very bland sweet grain and corn taste.

Mouthfeel: It has a medium carbonation with a very light overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied with very bland flavors and aromas.

I was driving, but wanted another beer. What...to...do...

This beer pours a clear pale straw aura, with a half finger of fizzy white head, which collapses in an instant, actually leaving a few specks of lace around the glass. It smells of mildly chlorinated water. The taste is very mild corn grain, and barely perceptible weedy hops. The carbonation is average, the body watery, clean, and smooth, I suppose. It finishes with more of that hard water sensibility.

Diluted Canadian, in a nutshell. Nothing offensive, or unpleasant, if you really don't care that you're drinking a half a beer. Drink a glass of actual water in between real beers if you need to pace your calories and/or buzz.

2.7/5  rDev +48.4%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Pours a pale clear yellow with hardly any head. Keeps a ring around the glass and left a little bit of lacing.

S: Not much there for the smell. Small notes of grains and corn.

T: Same as the nose. Grainy and corn but it's very watery.

M: Light carbonation with a very light body.

D: I can see with the 67 calories how some people may be attracted to this beer. There's nothing gross about it there's just nothing to it. It's so light that you can drink these like water.

355ml can poured into pint glass june24 2010

A the palest straw yellow you will find but it has a massive amount of bubbles feeding a thumbs width of bone white head that has surprisingly good retention and even leaves a few partial rings of lace

S banana? why do I smell banana? that's weird, some sweet grains and grassy hops and candied corn

T not much and what I do taste I don't like, skunky corn and sour sweet malt

M over carbonated tonic water

D drinkable in the same way waters drinkable, If there was a plague outbreak I would drink this as a safe alternative to water

I'm sorry but if you concerned about calories DON'T DRINK BEER!!! and I find it funny how the can has 70 calories not 67 perhaps they should rename it Molson 70 when sold in cans

It's kind of unfair to apply normal beer standards to this beverage. It has half to a third of the calories of a regular beer, or half of what you'd get from a tall glass of skim milk. Yeah, it's watery. Of course it is. But it's fizzy, refreshing, and not at all unpleasant tastiing. It's not a great beer, but it's a nice alternative to diet pop, Perrier or flavoured water.

I'm not one to turn away a nice light beer. However, this is ridiculous. A beer has got to taste like a beer, and this doesn't in my opinion.
When they say "light beer" that's exactly it.... LIGHT! Tastes way too watery for my liking. It is easy to go down though, so I guess if you're looking for something to refresh you, this may be it. But honestly, water will do the same.

Bottle from the singles bin LCBO store 200- A very very pale straw pour with a surprisingly long lasting bleached white froth. I'm immediately awestruck at just how much corn they must have used in this. It smells like a can of creamed corn and straw. I just shat myself in horror of all this corn. Thankfully it isn't as corny in the flavour department, but it sure is sweet and grainy, a bit grassy. Very light, easy drinking with literally no finish. I guess that is what they are aiming for. Overall this is shite, but I can see where it appeals to Joe Q. Poop Face and his hipster douchebag friends.
