look: 4 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 4 | overall: 1.5

I bought this completely out of curiosity of what "microcarbonated" means. I saw this on tap a couple weeks ago for $7.50 a pint, which was too expensive, but it was just $2.50 or so for a can at the LCBO. Pours a clear yellow colour with thick white head. Head dissipates within a minute or so, but there is still a thin layer of head with some mild lacing. Smells of faint grains, but not much else. No real bitterness or sweetness, just watery. Mouthfeel is nicer than typical Molson lagers in that it isn't overly carbonated. I suppose the microcarbonation does help the mouthfeel match the taste of water. So I guess it has that going for it, which is nice.

The beer is not horrible. Very average, considering it's hype especially. It tastes unoffensive and grainy like a watered-down Canadian as many have suggested. It does have a slightly different mouthfeel which I appreciate, but it seems to lack the pizzazz that even Molson Canadian has (and it doesn't really have pizzazz) I'd say worth a try for the effect, but don't expect a life-changing brew.

I hate that my curiosity over this gimmick made me surrender $2.25 to The Beer Store. But I felt I owed it to myself to see if smaller carbonation meant bigger taste. I hate to give away the plot this early, but guess what my friends? It does not.

There's definitely a slick, upscale air about the packaging. And it's even signed by John Molson. Who died 175 years ago. It's cool that he didn't let a little thing like death stand in the way of his endorsing this product.

Anyway, pours a very clear golden color yielding carbonation that looks normal size. Maybe there is subcarbonation that is too small for the naked eye? Yeah. That's probably it.

The aroma is mild sweet grains.

Microhopped more like it. It tastes weak and watery, with a light sweet biscuity, grainy malt cut by just the merest suggestion of hop bitterness. Clean taste. Tastes like a watered down Canadian with a splash of apple juice.

This is actually a pleasant enough beer. It's lacking any real bitterness or depth of flavour or character, but it's incredibly inoffensive and drinkable for what it is.

3/5  rDev +24%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A: Pours a clear yellow with a finger worth of white fizzy head. Within a minute the head goes down to a ring around the glass left no lacing.

S: Sweet and sour grainy aroma.

T: Sweet grains are basically all there is.

M: Light fizzy carbonation with a light body.

O: Like I said before this is basically a lighter, less carbonated version of Molson Canadian. But upon looking up this beer I found out it is only 75 calories. So if you're someone looking for a better alternative to one of those low calorie beers this is perfect and a lot better then something like Molson Canadian 67.

Using a slick advertising campaign loaded with fancy words like "microcarbonated" Molson piqued my interest enough to purchase a pack of this stuff. Oh how I wish they'd have forgone the expensive marketing and "revolutionary" (and secretly proprietary) carbonation technique in favour of developing a beer which does not insult my mouth.

Poured into my trusty Vancouver Canucks ale glass.

Piss yellow, crystal clear, no head, no lacing, very sparse carbonation (is that what microcarbonation is? None?) I initially figured that this was a bad bottle, poured it out and the second was equal. wtf is this s#%t...

Smell is the best thing it has going for it, in that it actually smells like SOMETHING, an inoffensive sweet grainy smell. Not good though.

Taste is pretty lame, but not disgusting. Weak generic malts with a hint of old apples. No bitterness whatsoever. Meh.

This feels like a taste test of my homebrew before I bottle condition it (I hesitate to compare it to heavily to my homebrew tho, as my beer is actually not bad). Hardly carbonated, seems stale. Serve extra cold because as this warms it gets a but fumey.

This is one of the worst things I've ever had the displeasure of consuming. Avoid like plague infested lepers.

2.5/5  rDev +3.3%
look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A- Looks like a pretty standard macro lager...coloring is yellowish dry grass and of course is very clear. The head is cloud white in color, starts out very nice looking, but fizzles out quickly to a half-assed layer on top. Carbonation looks to be about right, with lots! Lacing is modest but there is some hanging onto the side of my glass, slowly sliding back into the beer.

S- Not much to report here....smells similar to Canadian, but a little better. Adjuncty cereal grains and maybe just a little hint of hop bitterness but underwhelming overall...not because it smells bad, but because Molson forgot to include any aroma of note.

T- Tastes much like it smells....very bland. Some boiled corn sweetness, maybe some rice grits to keep it clean tasting and some slightly metallic type finish....not offensive but it's vague and underwhelming. There's a sweet tasting flavor that lingers on the palate for awhile after the swallow...reminds me of the aftertaste of a sweet bread minutes after eating it.

M- I have to say that the body is a little better than watery thin, and with plenty of "micro-carbonation" to scrub the palate clean and keep this one crisp and refreshing...so I gave this area a little better than average for the rating.

D- I'm not really a fan of Molson branded product, and this one doesn't really scream 'different'...I agree with a previous review and think the different Molson varieties come from the same tank. This really seems like a Canadian clone....perhaps just a smidge better b/c the bad flavors are hidden better by the massive CO2. I guess I could drink this if my options are limited but would pass otherwise.

2.43/5  rDev +0.4%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 2.5

473ml can, one format among many at the corner liquor store recently - do you really need singles, 6, 12 and 18 packs? The 'Microcarbonated' marketing shtick gets even better with the half-assed depiction of trailing bubbles on the label.

This beer pours a clear, very pale, yet bright golden straw colour, with two fingers of tight, thinly foamy, and weakly bubbly off-white head, which leaves some low riser lace around the glass as it quickly settles.

It smells of sweet corn and some stale butter - very much like popcorn discovered uneaten a few days hence. The taste is plain, underwhelming in multiple senses cereal grain, a more specific corn grist, a touch of diacetyl, and only an echo of drying, 'why oh why me' nondescript hops.

The carbonation is practically non-existent, so 'micro' if you must (hey, finally, truth in advertising!), the body a middling light weight, and more watery than this implies (my word machine unexpectedly failing). It finishes off-dry, some pithy cereal grain standing alone.

While this does taste a hell of lot like flat Canadian, the lack of skunk and better than expected cereal (the faint praise machine is running on all cylinders!) character make it drinkable enough, if not particularly enjoyable. I gather this means we'll be seeing it everywhere soon, a la Rickard's White back in ought-7...mmm..hmm.

T some sour lemon and some sweet grains, not much happening here

M I don't know what microcarbonated means because this has plenty of bubbles and no body

D sometimes the less flavor something has the easier it is to drink, not awful but I won't buy it again

not sure what gimmick this is supposed to have going for it but it failed to leave a mark on me

Straw yellow apperance with minimal head that disappears quickly. Smell is very sweet with some grain, but kind of dull.

Taste is similar to the smell, dull but overly sweet. Picked up some grain and hops, but nothing big. Light-medium bodied with high carbonation. Aftertaste is very dry.

Overall, a generic adjunt lager. It is refreshing and easy to drink except for being overly sweet. Drink if you want something easy to chug.

Micro-Carbonated lol. What the hell sort of marketing ploy is that. Is Molson trying to recreate the 'dry' or 'ice' beer anew.

Looks like just about every molson lager. Light pale yellow, bone white head, next to no lacing. Lot's of tiny bubbles. Maybe that's the magic micro carbonation

Faint cereals and adjunct aroma. Nothing newsworthy here.

Taste. Meh. Stronger than normal cereal/adjunct flavour which isn't a good thing. Finish is sticky and slightly dry.

Not going to mince words. It feels like flat beer. Meh once again

It was a freebie tyvm, but I now know mico carbonation means little to no carbonation. Way to go Molson. Should b a smash hit with the 'my beer is too fizzy' crowd.

Found in a Quebec corner store, poured into my trusty over sized wine glass. Think I got a skunky bottle.

Poured a clear, watered-down golden color with a finger of loose head that lasted just a few seconds. The microcarbonated bubbles are smaller though.

I get a mild grain aroma that smells cheap.

The mouthfeel to its credit is very fine on the tongue,imparting a freshness like San Pelegrino carbonated spring water. It goes down easy, mainly because its so watery..

Sure reminds me of Canadian. It has a sweet corn and grainy taste that screams macro lager. There's a decent dryness that makes it tolerable, but its best consumed ice cold.

Had to try it, thought it may be a more full-bodied "signature" brew, but found a mediocre gimmick that tastes like a watered-down version of its big brother,despite the 4.9% ABV. One and done on this beer.

Poured into a pub glass from a can.
Minimum head quickly dissipating to really thin lace.
Bright yellow color.
Smell a lot of sweetness coming off. Peaches maybe?

Taste is a little watery, with a strange sweetness to it, like peaches. Reminds me of those peach vodka drinks they have nowadays.

Not a big fan of Molson stuff usually, but this one is not really impressive. Slightly refreshing but too sweet for my tastes. Likely a one off for me.

A recent gift from some of my beer friends who know about my ongoing passion for CANs and The CANQuest (TM). Many thanks, fellows!

How curious - "M" for "microcarbonated", whatever that means. Also interesting is that it came in a 710 ml CAN, which is a volume that I do not remember seeing before.

An inauspicious start with regard to the head - I had an equipment failure with my chair just after my initial pour and while I had a finger of bone-white head initially, by the time I corrected the problem, the head had dissipated. Color was a pale golden-yellow with NE-quality clarity. Nose was pretty standard - a lager sweetness overlain by all kinds of adjuncts. Nothing terribly new or exciting in that respect. I CAN't say much for the taste, since it was about as bland as processed AmeriCAN cheese. What a whole buncha nuthin'! Microcarbonated? Microtaste! Finish evidenced a little bit of the style's characteristic taste, possibly because I allowed it to roll around in my mouth before swallowing. Generally, though, it was simply bland. Overall, "M" did NOT stand for "Mmmmm, good."

Pale, clear, and yellow. Basically pale apple juice. Any head disappears quickly without a trace.

No real smell.

The taste reminds me of some clear- and green-bottled beers. Almost that skunky component, but not quite. It tastes OK, but not like much of anything.

Feels fine in the mouth. Maybe a little too carbonated.

It's fairly drinkable. It's fine for an eve on the deck, or with a meal on a patio. I wouldn't pick it above any other choices, though.

Bottle: Poured a pale bright yellow color ale with a small bubbly head with no retention or lacing. Aroma of corn and other crap adjunct is very light. Taste is also dominated by corn and crap adjunct thought very light and this ends up being very close to ginger ale. Not as bad as extremely bland.

On tap at a Boston Pizza.

A- Ordinay golden macro lager with a very small head.

S- Touch of grain, very plain.

T- Mild lager. Some graininess. While not anything special, it rises above many macro lagers by having no noticeably bad flavours. Very clean tasting. Very little hops.

M- Not too thin for the style. Quite acceptable really. Carbonation fairly low.

D- A very easy to drink beer and not too watery.

New Molson beer. On the can, it says Premium Lager... we'll see. Also new is that the beer is microcarbonated. No clue what they mean.

A: Pours pale yellow and very clear. Typical. There is actually a good head that is soap looking. Disappear quickly.
S: Nothing strong, mostly cereals, grains and corn.
T: Cereals dominated taste with light notes of corn.
M: Thin body.
D: One is 'nuff... a beer to drink to quench your thirst, but I wouldn't want more than one!

Sorry I tried to be positive somewhere... better than Molson Ex...

I dont know what is new from this beer...
