This is my favorite beer of ALL time!! It has a flavor and texture that I have not been able to duplicate in ANY other beer & I have tried to find something close since it seems that MOLSON appears to ramping down production. It has a full body flavor that isn't too much and still is light enough that you can enjoy more than one.

Had a few sips, poured the rest of a 24 pack flat on a fire in the morning after camping. Caused every single person to vomit from the smell. That about sums it up

Probably based on the classic okeef Canadian stock ale.

A-clear and golden, pours with a nice head but only leaves a thin ring of retention.

S- hints of sweet grain and floral hops.

T- pleasant grain with a light sweetness, hints of underlying hops (floral, grassy and a bit of earth), gentle bitterness.

M-smooth moderate body with an off dry finish.

O- This old school stock ale has stood the test of time.

Clear, dull yellow appearance with minimal head that slowly disappears. Smell is sweet with a strong hint of corn and apples.

Taste is sweet with a hint of apples and vegetables. Picked up some corn and grainy hops. This is all surprisingly light for a malt liquor, couldn't tell if this was a macro-lager at first. Light to medium bodied with high carbonation. Aftertaste is very sweet.

Overall, this is a strange brew. Very light tasting, but seems like it's loaded with sugar (like other malt liquors). Nonetheless, it's unbalanced and not upset that it's retired.

341ml bottle. Upon opting for this from the scant choices in the beer fridge at the dive bar where I awaited my girlfriend for our anniversary (we met there), the two older gentlemen (ok, barflies) whooped approvingly that I was picking an 'old standard'. Good to be part of the gang, at least temporarily, I suppose.

This beer pours a very clear, pale, pale golden straw colour, with two fingers of puffy, loosely foamy, and fizzy bone-white head, which settles quickly, leaving a jagged ring of sudsy lace around the old-school mug.

It smells of generic fruity corn mash, a touch of grainy malt, perfumed floral hops, and a bit of plastic/metallic astringency. The taste is sweet mushy corn grits, stale, overripe apples, a further mere suggestion of grainy malt, floral, dead grassy, and weedy hops, and a sugary alcohol edginess.

The carbonation is quite alive and kicking, but mostly in an innocuously frothy sense, the body medium-light in weight, a tad watery, and pretty much cloying in its weak-form smoothness. It finishes off-dry, with a warm, smoothly sugary, and weakening tainted graininess.

Easy enough to drink, I suppose, for the style (though malt liquor seems a bit overwrought a denomination for this particular offering) and yet too clingy to enjoy at length, I would imagine. Sorry, fellas, my gal and I are off and away, after paying our due respects to this gin joint, to see the better beer purveyors of our fair burg about a horse.

A - Clear gold with a wimpy, weak head.

S - Sweet with apples and a light hoppiness.

T- Typical macro-ish flavour, some veggies and apple.

M - Typically fizzy and yellow.

D - Basic macro-ish malt liquor. Drinkable and inoffensive. Obviously not flavourful.

This beer pours a pale yellow color, with a small, quickly-dissipated white head. The color is fairly standard for malt liquor, the not-so-delicious shade of yellow. The smell was much better than other malt liquors I've tried, it smelled like caramelized malt with a small amount of alcohol, much more mild than others I've smelled. I found the taste to be fairly balanced, the malt wasn't too strong, and there was still a noticeable taste of hops present. The mouthfeel was decent, nothing terribly exciting, but not bad either. I found it to be quite drinkable, though unfortunately its not like I can get more very easily, since I don't think they sell it in the US. I believe this beer may be O'Keefe's Extra Old Stock but now renamed to Carling Black Label to fit in with Molson's other beers.
