look: 3 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2

Appearance: Pours a clear, yellow body with a thin, white head.

Smell: Strong skunkiness, you can smell it immediately upon opening. Beyond that, there's a scent of over boiled corn niblets. Take your pick.

Taste: Corny taste with a medium corn syrup sweet. Yeesh. Shamefully skunky. Mild bitterness. Finishes with a slight sweetness.

Mouthfeel: Light-bodied. Medium carbonation.

Drinkability: Pretty gross, actually. The beer totally nose-dived after the appearance. Not recommended whatsoever.

Pouring it all you see is a very aggressive head that is short lived, leaving only a small rim of white around the edge of the glass. Kinda skunky, which is what to expect from a minimal flavored beer. Resembles Coors Original a little (not too suprising as they are the same company). Little pricey for the quality of beer, but as one of the guys said above, "it's a good lawnmowing beer".

The Moment: Enjoying the return of smell and taste, long shelved since allergies took their toll...
Glassware: Cleveland Browns pilsner...
Appearance: Pours a pale, tawny yellow, the color of dead grass; head quickly settles to a thin, uneven bubbly white...
Aroma: corn and malt that together is omewhat pungeant; airy, oxygenated vapor sits in the doughy strength...
Palate: approximates seltzer with its late fiz and medium-bodied tongue--almost like an Italian soda...
Taste: late pilsner accents with an aftretaste that lingers; syrupy aroma invades the sip; looking forward to ChexMix to marry this beer to its purpose...
Overall: As cases go, this can work; as fortunate as I feel to be able to rate beer again, I was a bit foolish to welcome myself back with this watery fare; mouth-quenching with a bit of beef bite that doesn't make the beer as easy-drinking as it should be...

As the oldest brewery (1786) in North American you would expect something more than a beer that appeals to the American Mass-produced mega-beer palette. And when you're expected to pay extra because it's an "Imported" beer, the value declines further. A Yellowish/Gold color is unimpressive. The thin/medium malt presents a somewhat mealy odd tasting flavor. The hops are a little more noticeable than some of the American mega-brew counterparts. The lightly skunky aroma is less than pleasant. I do not like this very much!

Pours a golden transparent hue with an inch of head and a little bit of lacing.

The smell was a bit skunky like its been sitting on the shelf for too long. Behind that you got some malty aroma.

Upon tasting there isn't a whole lot going on. Served cold I was able to get it down alright but really was not impressed with the flavor. Had a wierd ending that wasn't bitter or sweet, just kinda there and not very pleasant.

Moutfeel was overly adjunct, or in other words, addjunk and watery.

First beer I've listed on here that I wouldn't drink again unless someone handed me a free one and there wasn't anything else to drink. I'd take a Molson Candian over this hands down. Not sure what Molson was thinking with this one.

Pours a one-finger white head that fades fairly quickly leaving some lace. Clear amber color. Light-medium carbonation and light bodied. Strong skunky nose. Starts smooth and sweet - I was expecting skunk juice - but no real strong flavors, no hops to speak of. Good lawnmower beer. $1.65 for a 12oz bottle from Colonial Spirits Acton, Ma.

Maybe I got a bad batch, but this resembled hemlock to me.

bouteille brune de 341 ml.

classique de la gamme Molson, la golden se révèle d'une belle couleur dorée (comme son nom) ressemble à la pluspart des autres bières molson, peu de houblon, peu de malt, vraiment ordinaire. le nez est presque absent, peu de goût, beaucoup de maux de tête!!
