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.

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.
