From notes taken 01/08/17:

Clear, slightly amber gold. Off-white head, fairly fizzy at first but given a full pour, more fluffy and with moderate retention. Light grain and grass, some honey, pinch of lemon. Much the same to taste, extremely watered down. Better than your standard Bud but not by terribly much. Light to almost medium in body, lot of spritz and foam.

A pretty ordinary adjunct lager, but I find it better than most American macro brews. It pours straw yellow with a fizzy head that dissipates quickly. It smells like beer! Makes me think of college days. The taste is mainly sweet but clean and crisp, with a clean finish. Overall, this is one of my favorite beers to chug when it's hot, or have with food in a pub.

Molson Canadian Lager from Molson Coors. Bought a 18 pack of can for 21,99$.

Look: Gold yellow color with bubbles streaming up, that makes a finger of head that quikly goes away.

Smell: Corn and some adjuncts

Taste: Sweet bitter adjuncts lager. Some corn. Lots of sweetness.

Feel: Goes down really easy. Feels like a premium lager.

So overall would I recommend it? Sure, this is much better than molson dry or a budweiser. You should take a look on this beer
