Around the world, Canada is seen as a shining example of nature at its best. We have thousands of freshwater lakes and barley fields as far as the eye can see. That's what makes us so proud to brew Molson Canadian, our signature beer. Brewed without preservatives, from St. Johns to Vancouver, over 3000 Canadians have a hand in bringing Molson Canadian to their family, their friends, and their communities. The people who live here truly deserve a beer brewed with the best this land has to offer. That’s why we make sure our award winning lager is as clean, crisp and fresh as the incredible country it comes from.

Easily drinkable, just bland. A lot like the country it’s made in…

Can purchased at Coca Cola Coliseum in Toronto, Ontario.

This one pours a clear straw yellow color, with a small head, and lots of lacing.

This doesn’t taste like a whole lot, but most certainly pairs well with hockey in Canada. It’s got a pleasant crispness on the back end, maybe even the lightest hint of spicy grain, and no hop character.

This is light bodied, crisp, and pretty clean, with a decent drinkability.

This is obviously not super high quality, but as these things go, you could do a lot worse.

In the 80's, we all thought Moison Canadian was one of the best beers we could get(better than Molson Golden). My tastes have changed. I found this beer to be a bland and boring and slightly offputting.

473ml can poured into tulip.

Pours a pale straw yellow with two chubby fingers of bone white head that leaves a little sudsy lace as it recedes.

Smells of grainy pale malt, corny cereal, a bit of weedy hops and that's about it

Tastes of not a hell of a lot. More vaguely grainy pale malt, some vaguely sweet corn flakes and some very faint hop bitters.

Feels light and fizzy. Light bodied with prickly carbonation. Finishes off-dry.

Verdict: Recommended. It's not gross and offensive, just kind of limp and boring. Not bad.

Nicked from the Old Man's fridge in October 2022 before being drunk in April 2023.

L: Ultra clear, light straw-yellow. Large bubbles rocket up the glass. No head at all.

S: Light, sweet malt and an almost imperceptible floral hop note. It's boring and mass-produced, but exactly to spec and rated accordingly.

T: Water, sweet malt, diacetyl and corn. I looked up the BJCP description and it says "grain or corn that might be perceived as sweetness due to the low bitterness" and I wonder if that's what I'm perceiving as diacetyl. Top marks for adherence to style, even though I'm not exactly enjoying it. Gotta admit that it's crushable, too.

M: Low carbonic prickle and not much else. Pretty anonymous as it goes down.

O: Is this an objectively good beer? Well, no, not when compared to what else is available today. Is it brewed exactly to spec? Absolutely. The craft beer nerd in me wants to give this all zeroes, but this review is about the beer, not me. It's a well-made beer that does exactly what it's meant to do - be accessible to the widest possible demographic, and it gets top marks for that.
