look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A: Yellow to light amber. It looks good. It looks like what you'd expect from this type of beer.

S: A little skunky but not too bad. Could be mistaken for mellow spices or vegetable peelings.

T: Here's where this beer shines. Unexpectedly "super" delicious. A little more spicy than your everyday outdoor beer. There's a good quality to this beer that was planned for. A taste that some people really like.

M: Sparkling and refreshing. Smooth and pleasant.

Overall: Compared to some other OTS Canadian beers, this one holds it's own. Recommended for drinking outdoors or at a party.

look: 3 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 1 | overall: 1

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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Into a pint glass:

A: clear yellow body, dense foamy white head quickly dies, slight broken yet clingy lace speckles the pint glass

S: wheat, sweet corn, roasted barley

T: bitter, and sweet at different times slightly bland, dull

M: light, refreshing qualities made it feel watery, came out really clean, sessionable, no aftertaste nor finish

O: hmmm . . . not sure what to say on this part, but its originally Canadian, so might be good for watchin' hockey, eh?

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

appearance = tan/amber/brown color. White head

smell = malty with a bit of fruitiness

taste = It has a lot of fruitiness, but it's not the main flavor. It is pretty malty and full flavored, and kind of just "normal" tasting.

mouthfeel = Full flavored, light, and balanced

overall = I was pleasantly surprised by this beer. I like it more than regular moson probably.

look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass

A: Poured a golden yellow color less than a fingers worth of head that settle quickly to a ring with spotty lacing.

S: I'm getting a little sweet smelling malt then a light hops, not much else.

T: Tastes a lot like the smell... nice sweet malt upfront that lightens through the mid palette and finishes with a very light hops... Very little aftertaste.

M: Light bodied with a very crisp and refreshing carbonation.

D: A very drinkable beer, good ABV so you could drink a few.... But there is just not enough taste to make it really worth while. It is just a beer.

look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

12 oz can, bottling date on the bottom.

appears a light golden color, white head that fades fast. slight corn in the aroma. taste is fairly bland, but not bad for the style. light malt flavor, a touch of hops. thin body, higher carbonation.

interesting that I read on Molson's website that this is a blend of Ale and Lager. One of the better choices for cheap beer.
