Tallboy from Walmart; coded May 27 2022 and served slightly chilled. Up until today, I'd only ever seen this for sale in multi-formats (six-packs or more) - I'll review anything once, but I ain't buying six macro light beers just for a tick. A single tall can, OTOH, is practically impossible for me to resist.

Pours a clear golden yellow colour, capped off with one finger of soapy, foamy white head that recedes within two or three minutes' time. A tight collar and filmy-thin cap remain, along with a few scattered specks of lace - looks like a typical macro lager. Almost nothing on the nose, save for watered-down hints of corn husk, club soda and faint graininess.

It's pretty weak, even for an ultra light beer - muted flavours of diluted, corny cereal sweetness, grain husk, maybe a hint of wet cardboard. Finishes with club soda and mineral water; basically no aftertaste. Light in body, with a thin, watery mouthfeel and aggressive carbonation - once again, the 'club soda' comparison is difficult to avoid. It's thirst-quenching and inoffensive, but that's all the praise it deserves.

Final Grade: 2.72, a poor C-. Molson Canadian 67 disappeared right around the time they started actively marketing the Ultra brand again, which may just be a coincidence... but I think it's safe to say one 'low cal light lager' label is enough for Molson. Is this better or worse than Michelob Ultra - a beer I've had maybe twice in ten years? I'm going with slightly better, because Molson Ultra tastes more or less like a watery beer, whereas the Michelob equivalent barely tastes like anything. Not for me, but if you're looking for a low calorie option then this is at least viable.

355ml, tall skinny boy can (at 3% ABV, FWIW). Been seeing a lot of ads for this offering of late (all of them pandering and shitty, not too unexpectedly).

This beer pours a crystal clear, pale golden yellow colour, with three fingers of puffy, finely foamy, and creamy bone-white head, which leaves some surprisingly broad webbed lace around the glass as it evenly bleeds out of sight.

It smells of gritty and grainy corn-bred malt, a bit of weird earthy yeastiness, and very, very little else. The taste is grainy and crackery pale malt, watered-down Corn Pops, some diluted minerality, and yeah, a hard stop for anything further one might have been furtively expecting.

The carbonation is average in its palate-pinging frothiness, the body a so-so medium weight, and essentially smooth, in that boardroom-table consensus sort of way. It finishes mostly dry, the basement wallpaper 'character' kind of predominant. Yeah.

Overall - not particularly motivating, or interesting in the least, which is hardly a surprise. As always, way more marketing than substance, so keep that in mind when you come across this latest lifestyle push from BMC, or whatever the fuck they're referred to as now.

look: 1.5 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 1 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 1
Appearance: It pours very pale yellow colour.

Smell: It smells not very good. At first, it smelled so much piss that I thought it was a prank can.

Taste: It is not really good. It tastes salty with some malts. Is it really a beer or what? One of the worst beer "flavour" ever tasted. Even Corona, Labatt Blue or Bud tastes so much better.

Mouthfeel: It is not too good on that side too. The carbonation burns my palate and my tongue. Otherwise, it is way too watery.

Drinkability: AVOID! Final period.

Why? Why? Why? I cannot fathom why someone would choose to drink this. I cannot fathom why I drank it. Oh well, even bad beer should be experienced, once. Pours a pale yellow colour. Not a piss yellow. Lighter than that. No head whatsoever, no lace whatsoever. Just a rim of bubbles. Smells like... water. Really, no beer smell, or any smell too this. Tastes extremely weak. Their is a bit of a malt taste, but it's so light and undistinguishable that it's almost nonexistent. No body whatsoever. Light. Basically, yellow coloured water. And a waste. I will not be partaking of this again.

Bottle – Poured a pale ale with limited head. Almost no aroma. Body is extra light with standard carbonation. Taste is very light, a bit of malts but mostly water. No worth drinking unless you really like beer and intend on following an intense diet.
