This is one of my favorite Molson products besides Molson M. Also, this beer will not give you the terrible Molson Mudslides like Canadian will.

This beer pours a cloudy golden colour.

Smell is very neutral. not potent, but not weak.

Taste is a perfectly balanced wheat. Some wheat beers are sweet, but not this one. Perfect.

Mouthfeel is great. Very smooth with the right amount of carbonation.

Overall I was very happy with this beer. Would purchase this before most European offerings.

2.63/5  rDev -5.4%

Serving Type - 473ml can poured into a weizen glass.

Appearance - Looks like a what beer. Cloudy, golden straw coloured, pored with 2 fingers of bright white head which unfortunately dissipates quickly. A bit of lacing is left behind.

Smell - Smells like a wheat beer. Definitely smelling some wheat in there. Rather bready smelling.

Taste - Does not taste like a wheat beer. Uhh. not a lot of wheat here. None of the typical cloves and bannanas and spices you'd get from other offerings. Sort of tastes like wheat-y molson canadian. It's really not that bad for what it is. But it is that bad for a wheat beer.

Mouthfeel - Extremely light, medium carbonation, crisp finish. Refreshing but watery.

Medium sized white head settles into a decent lacing above a cloudy pale straw golden colored beer.

Light aroma of standard wheat beer smells, light lemon, light wheat, and lighter washed out spices.

Lighter tasting wheat beer, with some washed out wheat and lighter yet on some yeast tastes.

Light dry aftertaste without much taste remaining with this light bodied beer.

A very light tasting wheat beer from Molson.

473 ml can poured into a pint glass. Picked up a single can from LCBO for $2.35 CDN.

Appearance - Fairly effervescent, with clear golden color. Creamy and mountainous 3 fingers of head was extremely white, but didn't hang around too long. Still a good looking beer.

Smell - Grassy notes a few bready malts. Wheat unsurprisingly, but everything is very subdued and washed out. Nothing unpleasant here, but nothing terribly inspiring either.

Taste - Basically tastes light a very light wheat beer would, without much any sweetness that would be picked up in a true witbier. Fairly bland and leaves a slight bitter aftertaste. It is what is expected since it is Molson Canadian with a stronger wheat focus.

Mouthfeel - Thin feeling with good thirst quenching abilities. However comparing to a witbier is unfair since it really lacks the wheat relatively speaking. Light bodied as well.

Overall - Not a bad brew, but this really doesn't suffice if you're trying to introduce someone to new beer styles since it stylistically still very similar to Canadian.

Pours a pale piss yellow colour with a huge four finger head that quickly dissipates into nothing. Smells like corn, wheat, lemon and straw. Tastes pretty much like it smells. Mouthfeel is smooth. I'll give it that. Overall, a decent Molson product, but a beer I won't be seeking out again.

Appearance: It's slightly cloudy, but not overtly so as you can still make out the other side of the glass. The carbonation in the body is steady, and it did produce a finger and a half of head. No lacing though, and average retention.

Smell: Straw like lage smell blended with a light tone of citrus and wheat malt. Warming doesn't really help it either way. Nothing special, but nothing bad.

Taste: A sweet lemon citrus starts us all before it is slowly and steadily overtaken by straw like lager malt. There's not anything more to say. It's brilliant in it's simplicity, but leaves you wanting something a bit more.

Mouthfeel: Transitioning is good, carbonation is a little lax, the light lemon aftertaste is nice but the crescendo of the beer is a bit odd. The good slightly outweighs the bad.

Drinkability: Yeah, it's pretty good but it's a strange beast. It walks an odd line between wit/light lager and hefe/real lager. Not quite as light as it should be given it's fairly simple flavour, but still an easy summer drinker.

Final Thoughts: Certainly nothing to write home about, but nothing overtly bad on this one. It pretty much does what standard Canadian does, only a little better, and that being a benchmark for what is average.
