Thanks to Mike at Little Guy Liquor for the sample. From a 355 ml can. Pours out a clear straw colour, lots of carbonation action, head settles quickly to a thin creamy cap.
Sadly there was the funk of adjunct and chemicals as soon as I cracked it open to pour. Oh lovely.... Sweet corn and grainy malt on the nose, mild bready malt farther in the background. No hops being accentuated by those micro-bubbles. No hops at all.
After the first sip my impression is that Molson is attempting to produce the blandest beer available on the market. If microcarbonation is supposed to remove almost all traces of flavour, then perhaps this can be deemed a glowing success. I can't in good faith list this as a straight 1, as there's no serious offensive flavour in there; really, there's just an absolute lack of flavour. There's nothing to comment on really. Well, there is a mild chemical burn noticeable on the finish, where hops would normally be. And that certainly isn't hops going on there.
The mouthfeel has a bit of bite from whatever chemicals happen to be lurking in there, and has a texture akin to seltzer water, but overall comes across on the thin side.
I admit I don't get it. That is the hype around the "microcarbonation" going on in this beer. Actually I do get it. The company came up with a marketing buzzword to garner attention, yet in the end it's just a hollow straw man. If flavour frightens you then this beer was made especially for you. Otherwise don't believe the hype or get sucked in, there's nothing really here. If you're concerned about getting filled up too fast pass on the thought of a beer entirely and go have some tap water.

Molson Canada is the first to introduce Microcarbonation. Basically smaller bubbles, and lots of them. Makes for an extremely easy drinking and smooth tasting beer.
This beer pours a light gold colour. Lots of small bubbles.
Smell is very faint. Like a dull Molson Canadian.
Taste is what a Canadian Lager should be. Strong, but not offensive.
Due to the microcarbonation it feels great on the tongue. Just the right amount. Goes down smooth.
Overall I was very impressed with this beer. I will be purchasing again in the near future. Good job Molson.
Also, if you consume alot do not fret. No Molson Mudslides the following day with this product.

Molson M is one of those weird beers that people either really love or really hate. I'm the latter. The taste is not the problem here, it tastes like plain old Canadian, but this beer is flat is anything I've ever had - the "microcarbonation" gimmick is a joke.
Basically if you take Canadian, let it sit for a day, then drink it, you will have this. Ugh.
