A very pale golden color body with a thin fizzy white head that dissipated quickly. Aroma is rather light,some corn,faint hay,and a slight bit fruity,very faint citrus. Flavor is quite light ( as to be expected) a bit of pale malt,some other dry grain,a bit of noticable hops,smooth drinker,with little to no aftertaste,not bad for a light beer, I would buy this again if I were into the light beer thing.

For a light this is very nice...for a light.
Colour is a weak, thin, golden hue. Head was one finger when arrived and quickly disapated and carbonation was light.
The nose was minor and thin as the colour.
But, the taste for a light was acceptable, evenly balanced, lite(ly) hopped and finished better than anticapated to the malts.....again, lightly.

Poured from a 12oz can into a pint glass.

The color is a clear pale yellow with a very thin white head and has no lacing.

The smell is of a grainy, yeasty flavor with a bit of a corn smell.

The taste is of cooked corn and is very light. No hop flavor to speak of. Has a grain feel as well.

The feel of this beer is dry with a light, crisp feel. It is also very drinkable.

Pours a very pale straw hue, with excellent clarity. The bubbly white head reaches only one finger in height, but holds well. Little to no lacing. Faint grain adjunct smell, mostly clean. The taste is equally bland; some grain adjuncts and slight hop bite that leaves a bitter aftertaste worth mentioning. Thin body and high carbonation make up a crisp mouthfeel. The flavor is not bad for a light lager, and it is fairly balanced, but its so thin that eventually the alcohol is percived and detracts from its drinkability.

Poured into a pilsner glass.

Pours a clear light straw. Decent white head with better than expected head retention. Decent looks.

Brew smells of light hops and light malts. Bare minimum nose.

Brew is light, clean and would be refreshing on a hot day. Corn and sweet pale malts. Almost nothing flavorful or memorable. OK.

Brew is what it is, a light lager that wouldnt offend.

Molson delivers a pretty basic light lager in their Canadian Light. The golden body is a little bit darker than most, which is nice, and the head is a creamy bright white but it dissipates quickly as expected. The nose offers a bit of yeasty fruitiness and some sweet malt along with some floral hops - nice! In the mouth it offers a dextrinous medium-light body and a gently zesty carbonation. The malt is just slightly grainy; and it leans towards sweetness but never really gets there. It's surprisingly rich for a light beer, and actually offers more flavor than some of the standard price-point beers out there. The balance is nice, and the transition is smooth from malt into lingering floral and spicy hops amidst a mild bitterness in the finish. Hmmmm... actually pretty good in comparison to most light beers. Well done!

i drank a few which says a lot for a light beer. this had a little more flavor than other lights, but it still lacked. i would take it over bud coors miller any day, but i don't think i will take it at all. so far no light beers have really done it for me except for sam adams. lights are just not fantastic

Pours a typical light yellow color with a decent amount of foam. Aroma is pretty bland at first though I detect hints of corn adjunct and some sweetness. Taste is much of the same, sweet and yet some bitterness on the tongue. Nothing too impressive or offensive at the same time. Tastes like Molson Canadian, except lighter of course. I would give it a fair rating.
