Poured a 2" white head. Very light clear straw yellow color. Smells like grass and some sort of mild hops. Very mild taste of corn with a mild acidic zing to the finish. Although thoroughly mainstream BMC average I have to admit this wasn't nearly as bad as I thought it would be and I'd choose it over many of the other weak light beers out there.

Poured into a pint glass.

A: Typical light adjunct lager - pours a clear, pale yellow. Meager sized head that left behind a surprisingly good amount of lace.

S: Mild grains and slight whisps of hops. Ever so slight scent of fruit, maybe green grape. Per usual, not too much going on with this brew.

T: Just like the scent - mild grains, light hops, and ever so slight fruit notes. Crisp and clean finish.

M: Very light feel. This brew has a pretty considerable amount of carbonation. Again, very smooth and easy to drink.

D: Excellent.

Pretty much what I expected for a light adjunct lager. Good beer for parties and games where there's nothing better being offered.

The Moment: Catching up on NBC's Thursday programming tonight...
Glassware: Cleveland Browns pilsner...
Appearance: A more orange version of the pale Golden; similar effervescence...
Aroma: A pungeant doughy malty sweetness....
Palate: A bit mellow, and a much more bubbly, gassy experience...
Taste: Syrupy sweet, smooth malt finish with little to be done on the way down the throat; clean water, yes--mostly just water...
Overall: Not much of a difference between the Golden and the Light, save the gas and the simplicity of its taste profile; drinkable in vast quantities, but preferably in pong/asshole/regatta/flipcup engagements...

Molson CANadian Light in a CAN as part of the CANQuest! CAN it be for real?

I decided to try a calibration beforehand and drank a regular CANadian before having its Light version. My pour created a fluffy two fingers' worth of bone-white head with low retention. It fizzled and bubbled with CO2, but ultimately fell harder than a drunken sod in the dark on Sunday morning. The color was a lighter, paler yellow than its leaded counterpart. Nose was pretty much the same - a sweetish, cereal-laden lagerish smell that I have grown accustomed to. Boooring! Mouthfeel was actually fuller, more effervescent than regular, but the taste was definitely lessened by whatever process is used to create a light version of a beer. This was almost bland and watery, like a broken pencil - pointless. Ho freakin' hum! The finish was equally snooze-worthy.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a very pale yellow color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is very mild, slight hints of corn. Taste is crisp, basically flavorless, not really getting much of anything here. Feels watery in the mouth and is very drinkable due to it's lightness. Overall there is not much to this beer at all.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 4

A: Clear and very pale yellow color. Poured <1 finger fizzy white head. Very little lacing. Decanted continually.

S: Sweet fruity scent mixed with notes of corn and rice. There is a light spicy hops finish but it's very light.

T: Strong malty start of sweet fruits such as apples. There is a nice blend of corn that doesn't bring a bad flavor. There is a spicy flavor of hops and medicine. The medicinal taste isn't bad at all but adds a little depth to this light adjunct beer.

M: Smooth and sweet at first then turns a bit spicy and fizzy. Finishes very clean, crisp, and quite refreshing.

D: Good (better than most) light lager.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle marked DEC2709-07622NB. Sampled on August 28, 2009. SInce I am trying to lose weight I have been drinking more and more light beers and this one is actually pretty good as far as light beers go. The pour tends to be more golden yellow with a lot of foamy white head and excitable carbonation. The aroma is of barley, malts and a little grass. The mouthfeel is a tad heavier than many lights and in the medium range. The taste is has a nice balance of malts and a chaser of hops but not overpowering.

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

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.
