Molson Coors Canada
Ontario, Canada

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.

Appearance: Produced a finger of head that did manage to lace and stick around fairly well. The body is a clear gold with some decent carbonation. Nothing of exceptional note, but it seems to be a general, all around good job here.

Smell: Fruity esters and yeasty smells, apples and pears come to mind, but it doesn't quite hit the nail on the head. There is a nice backing of grain malt to it. Could be a bit stronger though.

Taste: Starts with some light, doughy malt that turns to much more fruity taste with some mild yeast and ends with a dusting of a mixed bag of light hops. It's a nice halfway point between a more flavourful ale and a more generic lager taste.

Mouthfeel: Crisp and clean, and doesn't leave anything in the way of aftertaste. Easy to drink, although the carbonation is a little meek. There is also a very slight clinging plastic feeling I could do without, but it is fairly subdued.

Drinkability: It's a little heavier on the stomach then you would think, but other then that it's easy going down with enough flavour to stay interesting.

Final Thoughts: One of Molson's better offerings, that is for sure. When I was younger, Export wasn't my cup of tea as it seemed to be a lot heavier and hoppier back then, however now, it is a suitable replacement for when only Macros are on tap.

Molson Export is like most typical North American beers. It pours a golden clear with initial big head that dissapates quickly. The smell and taste are mostly grain. Mouthfeel is lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall it is a decent beer that is drinkable.

Molson Ex, one of my favorite beers and probably the one I've consumed the most of in my life, largely attributed to my days at the factory way back when (Miss those stubby bottles).

This is definitely Molson's finest product in my opinion, which is saying something because I enjoy most of their products save for the rare misadventure (Molson M).

Nice crisp taste with a hoppy spicy kick. One of my favorite styles of beer and Ex is a premier option. Mouthfeel is prickly and effervescent. My one complaint is the beer's flavor seems to diminish surprisingly quickly, so try to find one with the closest brewed date.
