12oz bottle at fridge temp poured into a pint glass. i recieved this from a nieghbor and he didnt know how old they were. he got them from his canadian relatives. aparently you can only buy this stuff in canada.

pours a clear golden color, darker than most macros, but still a nasty looking color. a half inch of super fizzy white head that faded instantly. looks even more off putting than your average macro.

smells of apples and grapes, really wierd.

taste is pretty repulsive. has this funky old grape taste, and corn adjunct malts. thicker than your usual macro on the palate.

this was definatly a drain pour altough i recieved 2 of these and drank the other one out of the bottle with my nieghbor just to be nice. but now pouring into a glass, after a few sips i find it undrinkable.

i did have this a long time ago and do remeber it being kind of nasty, but not this bad. im defrinatly thinking these are old bottles. if i can ever get some more for some reason id try to do a re review, but im definatly not going out of my way to get it.

Despite the fact that this malt liquor has a rough alcohol taste to go along with a taste of burnt corn, I must wax nostalgic about it for a moment....Many trips were made over the border to the duty-free shop in Windsor, Ontario, in pursuit of this beverage in my youth and it did fine by me. Now....back to the present. Not a good beer...Molson and the rest of Canada for that matter, make much better.

When my friends suggest this I thought they were pulling my leg, but I guess there are hommies in Canada too. This gutter beer has nothing on it's American Counterparts. Drick it extremely cold and fast, unless you wnat to hurl.

Ordered in error, not knowing it was a Molson product... The server then proceeded to tell me that the "young kids" like to drink it because of the higher ABV.

A - Pours a pale golden colour, thin layer of head with no retention or lacing.

S - Scent is mild, metallic and loaded with sweet corn and grassy notes.

T - Same as the nose with the sweet corn and grassy notes. Mild and short lived.

M - Medium, smoot and wet.

O - Tastes like any other macro with a bit more sweetness attributable to the higher ABV. Definitely not recommended, and a mistake I surely won't make again.

Reviewed on 7/21/09. Bottle. Pours a clear gold with a white head. Aroma of pale lager malt, cardboard, wheat malt. Flavor is pretty plain, wheat/cardboard malt and sweet sugars. I suppose it is better than the original pale lagers but obviously is not a good product.

Golden with a slight head. No smell except a little yeast. Great tasting if it remains icey cold, if not tis a wee bit skunky. No apparent hops or any malt. This used to be one of my favorite beers but now I'm a bit educated to tasting I realize this belongs in a "fotee" next to Schlitz, Cobra or even an MGD. If you are going to drink it, drink it fast. That alone says something about this.

Thanks to my supervisor for hooking me up with this one. Poured into a pilsner glass. Pours a clear golden color with white heading decent lacing throughout.

Nose is mostly corn sugar with a touch of citrus hops.

Taste is not as bad as you'd believe being a malt liquor actually enjoyable.

Mouthful is very thin with decent carbonation no overkill at all.

Drinkability is not nearly as bad as the other malt liquor's of the world I probably could have had another but didn't have anymore. All and all not really a must try but exactly horrible either.

I used to drink this stuff as an import from Quebec in the 70s when it had body and was 8% AVB.. Recently bought a couple of singles from the beer store....quite a letdown from the way I remember it. Poured like the typical Molson fizz...pale golden, carbonated, weak heading. More malt sweetness to the nose than most Molson slop, medium mouth feel with sweet malt acceted by a nice hop finish but a nice bready after taste...alcohol is detectable. Not bad...not good....certainly not the way it was.

Born north of the border. This is one of those beers that takes me back to more innocent days of hanging out in Windsor at the "ballet". This beer is about the same as all the other lagers that Molson puts out but the alcohol content is a little higher. Drink it cold. Once it warms up, it's truly crap. Not recommended unless your trying to get f#d up and don't want to lose your seat at the tip rail from going to the head a dozen times.
