look: 2.5 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 1

A: Poured a bright gold with a sudsy, off white head that was thin and spotty from the start. Visible carbonation was medium-strong.

S: A noticeable skunkiness upon first opening. There was some sour skunky hopping as well.

T: Some sour corn with a light skunkiness and sour flowery bittering. Not much else to say but was pretty bad.

M: light, watery with an unpleasant sour finish. The quicker off the tongue the better.

D: One of the worst ive experienced even for a macro and that's not being biased. It's a dumper and my first 1.0 drinkability rating.

341ml twist off bottle.

A 'golden' bodied beer, indeed, with a slowly dissipating paper white head. A healthy stream of bubbles and perfect clarity.

The aroma reminds me of pennies. It is akin to something I might expect smelling from those fountains people throw change in. A fairly straightforward mix between metals and cleaning products - it honestly smells corrosive.

I bring the glass to my lips wondering 'should I be wearing gloves?' Well, fortunately, the first two or three sips didn't kill me; they did, however, turn me right off of taking any more.

The carbonation is stiflingly high while the mouthfeel has a disreputable feeling to it. All parts of the mouth/throat feel coated in a syrupy, sticky starchiness. It is bloating. How weak must your palate be for this to pass as even refreshing?

The corn is not so outright in this one, although likening it to corn syrup would be quite accurate. I can make out a small ounce of malt, but it comes across tasting like crackers, plain Wonderbread, or in particular, those stale, wafer ice cream cones. Luckily, these tastes are weak.

It doesn't seize to amaze me how nearly every Molson beer is essentially the same. I also struggle with coming to grips with how poor they all are. While most macro lagers tend to do a disservice to beer, Molson surely must be one of the worst offenders ... and I won't even get into their advertising.

Do avoid.

Pours a light yellow/blond color with a decent head. Green bottle so there's some skunkiness (not a surprise). Decent foam though. Taste is somewhat malt-ish and dry, kind of bland up front. Nothing impressive. It's not much of a blonde ale either.

More adventures in raiding other people's refrigerators.

Poured from a green bottle (?!) to a pint glass. Had a thin, golden appearance and not much else. No head, no lacing.

There was a somewhat skunky smell along with malt, corn and hops.

The taste was watery, thin with traces of malt and hops. Very uninteresting.

This one isn't especially highly carbonated and has a metallic mouthfeel for an uninspired mouthfeel.

This is not a drinkable beer. It's a macro beer, made for the masses who don't want personality in a beer.

Clear green bottle; throws a light gold in color, a nearly non-existent patchy white head. Grains, malt and corn on the nose. Sweet malts, burnt cooked veggies and day old biscuits in the body, a raw-adjunct filled palate. Light in the body, dull and lackluster; skip it.
