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.

This a good pretty good beer for a macro, but it was first made when it was a micro-brewery. It has a great ale color and smells fruity. The taste ia awesome for a macro so i think it is above average. The mouthfeel is like most of the ales. In average it is definetly the best ale you can find everywhere in Canada!

i like this better than either canadian or golden. its very sessionable and less artifical tasting. pours clear yellow color with a excited white head over an inch tall, decent retention. watery look overall, but not bad. smells like pale malts, very light, with on;y some bittering hops in there as to not be offensive. taste is the same, but i reckon a stiffer hopping would make this a damn fine beer, it seems to be lacking to me, and that could really set it off. mouthfeel is good, smooth and drinkable, lighter body but not too light, with bright carbonation. sessionable, especially when ice cold. i dont mind this one in the summer when i am on a budget.

Export says 'ale' on the label, but looks like a conventional lager in the glass. It is bright golden, filtered to near oblivion, with soda-pop bubbles and an antiseptically white head that falters and leaves little lace.

The bouquet has a slight pungency like that of a cheap cider vinegar and smells, just generally speaking, 'off'. If not for that off-putting pungency I'd say it resembles creamed corn. It certainly has the sweetness. In fact, this thing smell like it has more corn than a Mayan harvest festival. I wouldn't be surprised if there was mention of it in the Popol Vuh.

Perhaps the kindest thing I could say about Export's flavor is that there isn't much of it. The sting of aggressive, artificial carbonation makes more of an impression on the palate than the flavor of corn kernels, which, by the way, is about the only flavor that exists. There's nothing that resembles barley (or hops, for that matter).

The border that divides ales and lagers, although easily defined in technical terms, is far from concrete as far as things like taste and texture go. Some lagers offer a world more of flavors and body than ales. Just as equally, some ales, like Molson Export, contain even less malt and bitterness than even the palest of lagers (which this really drinks like).

Molson makes a number of abhorrent beers and, in full fairness, also have a few passable offerings in their portfolio. Export, in my opinion, doesn't fit neatly into either of those two camps. It's not offensive, but it's far from pleasant. I can't imagine any scenario where I'd recommend anyone buy this beer. It is distasteful at worst, forgettable at best.
