A pretty average beer all around. It is nice on a hot day around the grill though. I lump this in with beers such as Budweiser, Michelobe ect.

Oily and corny in both the aroma and taste. Very slick mouth feel. Sulfer drowns out any hop presence, save for the slight pepper in the finish. No malt quality, just cooked corn.

Poured from 12 oz green bottle into pilsner glass
A 1" pillowy white head drops quickly with some mild lacing. Color is clear light gold with moderate streaming carbonation. Aroma of grain, a bit of skunk, and grassy hops. Mouthfeel is thin and watery with an easy finish. Flavor lightly toasted malt and distinct grassy hops. Overall it is a decent brew -- taste a bit like a Cream Ale (probably as a result of being an Ale-Lager hybrid).

A little sour.

This is way better than pretty much all of the beers rated as "poor" I have seen on BA. It has that import flavor that was special back in the days before microbrews were around.

Poured a golden color with very little head
Smells alright, pretty bland
The taste is somewhat interesting in the way that Molson tastes like European lager to me, but not anything special
The mouth feel is crips
Overall I wouldn't turn down a free one

So, I have read the reviews and concede its not an all-star brew as far as ingredients and smell, but it is a damn fine, easy drinking beer. I keep coming back to this beer as a go to as it is light, clean and has no pretense. Its just a beer, plain and simple, but good.

Truly golden in appearance, clear as to be expected. Foamy bright off-white head of moderate retention, leaving lace barely worthy of note. Cracker, a blend of honey and grain, touch of rind to the nose. Similar, but heartier and distinctly better than the regular Molson Canadian. Green bottle and no skunk. Palate is essentially the same. And, as the label states, this does blend a bit of ale character in with its refreshing lagery goodness. That manifests itself in cracker flavor, but even that can be found in a pilsner from time to time. A little bit in malt tartness as well, and then rindier hops (which are otherwise floral). And then bready aftertaste, with slightly peppery retro-olfaction. the mouthfeel is a bit fuller than your standard Adjunct or even Pale Lager, arguably medium. Packed with carbonation, almost creamy in the main but a fair share of tight prickles on the edges.
