Poured from a can into pint glass.
Golden blonde color, with a half inch of short-lived white head.
Aroma is not very appetizing. Smells like old dirty lager. Also cooked vegetables and metal. Not going to try too hard here. Standard corny adjunct. Slightly sweet, but otherwise bland with very little hops. And..not sure what that other flavor is but if I had to guess, I'd say....dried grasshopper. Mouthfeel is flat and watery, and adds additional insult to the flavor. Slight alcohol bite at the end.
Have stayed away from this one for a few years and with good reason. Could be me, but seems like this beer has gotten worse since then. About the best thing I can say for it is that I love big cans like this and that I have had much worse beer. Next time I get the burning desire to grab an oil can off the supermarket shelves, it will probably be a Molsen XXX.

From the infamous oil can. Brewed in Fort Worth Texas. Best by date Dec 1. 2014. So quite fresh.
Pours clear gold with two fingers of long lived white head. Lacings were spectacular and some head remained to the bottom of the nonic pint glass.
Smell was mostly white bread. Some herbal or grassy hops also.
Taste is mostly malts white bread or biscuit. The hops are mostly noticed in the dry finish.
Mouthfeel is good. Carbonation is bold and the body is light to medium.
Overall a suprisingly good beer for the style. Served as cold as possible. As the beer warmed it still tasted alright with no off tastes.
