Notes: Brewed to be our strongest tasting lager using extra malt and hops in the brewhouse and fermented to give a smooth slightly sweet well balanced beer at 7.3% alcohol.

12 FL. OZ. bottle
Served in a can glass

This beer pours a brilliant amber hue and is topped with an inch of beige head that leaves spotty lacing.

Sweet, malty aroma with some grain and grass scents.

Sweet taste upfront. Actually, the sweetness carries throughout the taste. Not much in the way of hops. Hints of alcohol.

Medium bodies with an almost syrupy mouthfeel

I am just happy to get a 12 pack of "super premium" beer with all these $20-25 four packs out there. Fantastic value for the money. This used to be my go-to beer at my local Moose Lodge. It was $2 a bottle there.

12 ounce bottle poured into a tumbler pint glass.

L: Brilliantly clear yellow, one finger white head is constantly renewed by masses of rising bubbles.
S: Subdued, quick whiff of grainy malt, light aroma of clean spicy hops.
T: Super malty, medium sweet, bread grain, corn, a medicine taste developed about half glass, sweetness builds.
F: Medium body, crisp to open, smooth finish.
O: Nice feel but the sweet medicinal flavor I’m getting isn't for me.

Picked up a 6 pack, from the case in the cooler, simply because the liquor store i live above doesn't have as many choices as the others in town. Wasn't expecting much, but that was the beauty of experiencing this. The other reason i decided to grab it was the fact it was brewed in Golden, so i was confident the water would make the beer tolerable since it's so high on the abv scale. Pours; and retains; A large 4 finger head, staying with the beer all the way down and leaving sticky lacing on the weihenstephan glass. Dry finish, sweet initial taste, almost a mix between a belgian golden ale and an american adjunct. Great malt liquor, would revisit and recommend.

This was not awful! Alcohols was well hidden despite cheap ingredients. Mostly inoffensive nose of malt and corn. Flavors similar with some bready notes similar to Molson Golden. I would have another of these for sure in a pinch.

Got a 12 oz bottle of this for free recently. Poured into one of my pint glasses, this pours a very clear, medium golden color with lots of streams of little bubbles continuously and rapidly rising to the surface. Has a nice white head that's an inch thick when first poured that settles to a very thick surface coating and a very thick ring lining the inside of the glass and decent lacing. Head settles eventually to a nice film layer of surface foam and there is some pretty good lacing in the inside of the glass too after a few sips. Aromas of some bready malt sweetness along w/ what's likely corn and rice and not much else. Not the best aroma by any means, but not unpleasant or offensive either. The taste is pretty much the same, some bready, malt sweetness followed by rice and corn and just a slight hint of hop bitterness. As I get a few more sips into this and as this starts to warm up a bit, I'm starting to taste an unpleasant grassy, cardboard, metallic bitter like off flavor of some sort. Also a touch of hops. Has a crisp and also smooth, medium bodied mouthfeel w/ moderate carbonation. That unpleasant grassy, metallic bitterness taste lingers on my palate after each sip. I'm not even going to finish this one.

24 oz can pours golden with a light white head and lots of small bubbles. A light malt with ad little hops on the nose. Mouthfeel is light with just a little bubble foam on the palate. The flavors are decent with a bit of malt and a generic hops. You don’t get the 7.3% bite you might expect. Has a sweet rather than dry finish. A decent North American adjunct beer. Try it if you like simple adjuncts.

From a can, poured into a frozen mug. Some malty bread corn smell. Clear gold with 3 finger head. There’s a slight sweetness to it and mostly malt. Not great but not horrible. Is it worth it because of the 7.3% ABV? No. If that’s your destination, you’re better off getting a good bottle of scotch or bourbon.

I read some of the reviews which are ridiculous??? Paragraphes about notes of, and hints of ??? Are you kidding me??? If your trying this beer and you're a beer snob then don't rate it! I tried this brew on my lunch hour at work with a sandwich and some veggies and it was great! Better than a Bud Lite and satisfying for a quick lunch brew during work break. I'm not a beer snob but usually drink good beer, Founder's Short's Sierra Nevada but for a cheap, satisfying brew on launch break, this beer is great! Notes and hints escape me. This is why wine snobs get bilked out of millions because they think they "know" wine tasting. Drink beer to enjoy, not to "examine". BTW, my great grandfather was a brew master from the old country who drank and made good beer and passed it down to his family. I've said enough, enjoy this brew!!!

This beer is a very good inexpensive choice it has a beautiful color and is a a little on the dry side with a maltiness to it, not hoppy. This beer needs to be drank very cold, the colder the better. The 7.3% AC is an added bonus to something drinkable and cheap. Great beer for hanging out with friends outdoors or fishing. This beer is not for snobs or others that need an excuse to drink beer.

This beer used to be ok when you had to go to Canada to obtain it.
I guess before the merger with Coor's.
Not it just tastes like cheap malt liquor. Corn and grass with the alcohol biting the back of your throat.
It tastes like the "Ice" beers hot there.

Another review from April 2017, screw top Molson. I don't even remember how I came across this.

Looks like we've been designated as a malt liquor. Ok, so I'm guessing they went with corn to bump this abv up to get placed in this category. Ok, never found Molson to be all super grain 100% barley feels anyways.

Pours the most common color appearance of anything under the rubric of beer, golden, good clarity, 1/3" white head with poor retention. Aroma of well, malt liquor frankly, corn and rubbing alcohol.

Yeah, taste is largely fueled almost fusel like fueled with some sharp booziness. Big carbonation. Not much for taste here, a stinging booze, mild high alpha acids, mostly corn notes, you'd have to search for something resembling a grain malt bill. I'm not saying regular Molson is all that, but its better than this. Its like they just wanted to amp the abv up and took the cheapest way of doing it. I dunno, it looks decent, and the carbonation and body are light, but you really gotta drink this one super cold to avoid the alcohol bite and sting.

I expected a lot more from this one. A dark yellow pour with minimal head. Scent is a mix of malt, alcohol and some hop bitterness. Taste starts out bitter and mellows into a semi-sweet malt backend. There is something off in the taste I can't define. Mouthfeel is on the light side. An aftertaste that is unfortunately dominated by an unappetizing metallic taste

Stick to regular Molson. This xxx is very sweet and malty and not very good. It’s corny and sweet. Like you mixed BL Platinum and Miller High Life and added cheap vodka.

Bought a 24 oz can at a local party store in order to meet the debit minimum purchase. I figured I'd get something not necessarily compelling, but at least sweet and inoffensive. Well, I was wrong. From the can this one was boozy hot with sweet corn notes and a grassy, floral hop finish. After a few big gulps the booze heat lessens, but that mostly had to with the buzz the ABV was generating. There are other cheap, higher ABV brews worth the time.
