2.6/5 rDev -1.5%
look: 2 | smell: 2 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5
Poured from a 12-ounce twist-off into my Sunset Grill & Tap pint glass.
A: Pours a very pale yellow with a finger head of very light, bubbly carbonation. The head dissipates quickly, leaving a very fine ring of lace on the sides of the glass.
S: Smells like skunky, sweet corn husks. No alcohol noticed, and certainly no hops. Just watered down malts and barley.
T: It tastes just like it smells; sort of like sweet corn, with a hint of aluminum. Strange, because it was poured from a bottle. Not the worst, but not one to savor.
M: Mouthfeel is watery, but carbonation is heavy, like drinking a ginger ale. It's crisp, but I don't know that I'd call it refreshing.
D: It's a macro lager, not a pilsner, so don't be fooled by the label. For a macro, I'd say it's better than macro lights, but not any better than Bud or MGD. I'd use this for beer pong, or for watching a long baseball game.
I wanted to pick up the Labatt 50 ale, but decided on this instead. I'm hoping the other offerings from this Canadian breer are a bit different, but for now, Molson will stay on top as king of the Great White North.

I drank this straight from the bottle just to enjoy and relax after work today.
It was a clear golden color- what you'd expect from your typical macrobrewery.
A very light smell, hard to detect, but some wheaty notes of malt are what caught most of my attention.
The taste was pretty average. Wheat, grass, malt. It tasted a lot more refreshing and clear than a lot of similar brews.
Pretty decent mouthfeel. Not as smooth as I'd like, and a little too much carbonation.
This was a decent beer. Nothing special, not horrible. I'd drink it again, it's perfect for a weekend, relaxing, or after mowing the lawn.
