Clear gold with a small fizzy head. Light, non-descript nose. Light malt body, quite watery. Good crispness. One of the better AALs.

As a recent 21 year old I was stuck drinking whatever the boys bought me. The old man always bought me Molson in high school so thats what I grew up on. After 3 weeks of drinking a new "good" beer every night (northwest montana area) I have yet to find one that tops molson. From the first sip the delicious Canadian taste makes me dream of riding a polaris across the Saskatchewan prairie with a topless canadian broad on the back. Then my daydream turns into scoring the winning goal for the Flames winning the cup. Molson is the best beer I've ever had and probably ever will.

Poured from 16oz can into glass. Date stamped on can bottom is 'SEP0218' (best by date).
Crystal clear, gold colored body. Off white head stays around as thick cap. Actually leaves behind some lacing.
Slight aroma of slightly sweet cardboard and barley malt. Faint floral hops.
Taste does not deliver a pleasurable experience. Taste has some cardboard, and the aftertaste brings out a vegetal hint. Has a metallic mouth feel, and thin body. Very good carbonation.
Off putting over all taste of weird vegetal silage. No real after taste. Not recommended, but there must be millions of drinkers who choose this as their first beer of the session (followed by many more).

From start to finish this is a horrible lager. Molson Golden is at least drinkable. This had a horrible vegetable hop with brine water and malts. A terrible after taste and finish. Budweiser ,Corona,Coors, Pabst,Old Style all kill this Lager.

See through and straw colored with little head from tap. Beery corn sweet, not much else on the nose. Easy to drink but I’m not in love with the vegetal sweet finish. Medium in thickness with medium/light carbonation

Pours a typical golden and color and there is a white head that faded away rather quickly. The taste is neutral and inoffensive. there is little to no lacing left on the glass. There are beer I prefer to drink because they are cheaper, but not necessarily better.
