molson.com

Style: American Blonde Ale

Notes / Commercial Description:
With over 100 years of brewing tradition behind it, Molson Export continues to grow in lore. Its history, however, could never be as rich without the original, high-quality ingredients that have come to distinguish it from other brands.

We brew Molson Export with two-row barley, an exclusive strain of ale yeast that goes back to the origins of Molson Breweries, hand-selected Golding and Oregon hops and water.

Second to the last random from my neighbors mixed box. I received two Molson brews because according to him his absolutely cannot stand them. And we're talking about a man who found a ten year old bottle of Guinness in the woods and drank it. So here we go.

Pours a murked yellow which is somewhat surprising considering the style. Head is frothy and thick standing two fingers in height. Seeing some sediment float around.. Uh oh.

Smells adjuncty which js exactly as anticipated though there is a definite fruitiness coming through.

Luckily the fruitiness takes hold over the adjunct in this case. Not like IPA fruity, but pretty decent.

Feel is relatively light and it swallows easy with a moderate carbonation.

Overall nothing about this beer is big but it was better than I had expected. Now seeing that this is a blonde instead of adjunct I understand the fruit aspect better. If I were to ever see these around here at a low price point I'd pick them up for a definite easy drinker.

Actually this is not bad. Nice light golden colour, decent somewhat unique taste, a bit metallic but with decent bite and nice bitterness. Smell is meh, not much to it. I'd drink this again.

12oz bottle served in a stemmed glass. No date.

Appearance: Clear bright golden yellow with a thin white head. Some small strands of lacing noted here and there.

Smell: Clean, a bit herbal/leafy with a mix of noble hops and English bittering hops.

Taste: Malty with a mix of noble hops and English tea-like bitterness. The malt was biscuity in character.

Mouthfeel: Nothing special. Just right carbonation.

Overall / Drinkability: A no fills ale. Drank two of these without batting an eye over the course of a 2 hour networking meeting with appetizers to pair with it. A solid ale. Nothing terribly memorable, but definitely flavorful.

look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3.5

Appearance - This beer pours a clear golden straw color with 3 fingers of white bubbly head and lots of carbonation.

Aroma - Pale buscuity malts, a bit of apple, some light floral hops.corn. Not much going on but it smells pleasant enough

Taste - Corn, apple peel and a slight apple sweetness, pale malts, some light hops.

Feel - light watery body with some slightly prickly carbonation. very easy drinking.

Overall - This beer is very similar to all other macros you can taste the adjunct but it definitely has some fruity esters which may come from the ale yeast. not horrible for what it is,
