This is just your basic Canadian beer.

A - Pours out a light yellow (golden?) color with a fleeting head.

S - Grains with some hop note.

T - Good sharp flavor with a balance of malt and hops.

M - Very pleasant, a bit of a hoppy finish.

O - This is a solid choice for any Canadian beer drinker.

its molson golden...10.99 per !2er at elaborate review here but 2.5 times Bud for overall drinkability..when it comes to this watery sweet style there is really only one other option i would consider for a nice mellow session: and that would have to be Coors Xtra Gold

A: Pours a crystal clear medium straw yellow in color with significant amounts of active visible carbonation constantly streaming from the bottom of the glass and some faint golden yellow highlights. The beer has a finger tall fizzy white head that quickly reduces to a thin film covering the majority of the surface of the beer and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Light amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light to moderate aromas of grainy malts with corn adjuncts and some faint aromas of grassy hops.

T: Upfront there is a light to moderate flavor of grainy malts with light to moderate amounts of corn adjunct sweetness. Light flavors of grassy hops are present in the finish contributing a touch of bitterness which fades quickly.

M: Light bodied with moderate to heavy amounts of carbonation. Crisp but slightly thin/watery.

O: This takes me back to the days of college in upstate NY where this was the beer of choice due to the cheap price compared with American BMC (this was in the early 1990s so there were not a lot of craft options available). Maybe not as quite as I expected it to be from my college memories...and I was surprised that it was not skunky at all considering the green glass bottle.
