Molson Golden is a pale golden lager with a small fizzy white head. It has an aroma of... a vat of chemicals and creamed corn. It feels like stale fizzy water. Flavor is mostly cardboard, but the skunk is present as well. A touch of bitterness at the finish almost redeems it. No, it doesn't. Only the MacKenzie Brothers could drink this.

Golden yellow in colouration, no head, with a metallic smell to it. First off, its too malty to be a lager thats for sure, I would not classify this as a 5.00% ABV.

Tatste is far too malty for a night event, if you plan on gettin completely smahsed, and have a few extra dollars and don't really care about taste, then this is your beer. If you enjoy a quality product without preservatives and made with high-quality ingredients, then this is definitely not your beer.

Mouthfeel - incredibly overcarbonated, and lumpy in texture, not very smooth at all.

Drinkability is very selective, it takes a special person in order to drink this. Unfortunately, I am not that person.

A- Clear pale straw yellow with thin white head, little retention, and no lace.

S- Damp hay, musky skunk, stale boiled corn, and wet grass, sulpher and boiled eggs

T- Grassy, skunky, bitter and terrible spoiled corn, stale bread

M- thin and watery, over-carbonated

D- Terribly ruined taste with strong doses of skunk and thin watery feel. Absolutely horrible drain pour.

12oz bottle poured into pint glass. Bottom of neck stamped JAN0912.

Appearance - Pour white one finger head with good stick and low retention. Clear pale straw body.

Smell - Distinctly skunky marijuana. You could smell it from several feet away after the pour. That's the only character.

Taste - Extreme taste of dust. Very acidic. Bone dry.

Mouthfeel - Effervescent. Acidic and astringent. Light to medium body; somewhat sticky.

Overall Drinkability - Must be a skunked bottle. Beers like this make me really wish breweries would get over green bottles. I have no sympathy because I feel the skunking is an almost inevitable part of the design of this product, as such.

P-U! Upon opening and pouring I am greeted by the aroma of Pepe Le Pew's Quebecois cousin. That stench subsides enough that the glass of beer in front of me is at least drinkable. The head is thin but it is creamy enough to stick to the glass a bit. The color is yellow-gold and there are tons of floating little bits in it. Flavor is light-struck hops, adjunct and cheap malt. Finishes with a woody, bitter aftertaste. A lame and somewhat offensive fluid.
