This beer is great cold or at room temperature. It tastes amazing and goes down very smooth. I will pay top dollar for it every time. The alcohol content keeps me happy as well. The only downside I can find is if it sits around long enough, it tends to have a lot of head, and in a bottle this can be a problem. All around a very good beer.

Molson XXX has a thin, stark-white head, a deep, golden appearance, lots of bubble streams, and a minimum amount of residual lacing. The aroma is bold- sweet grain and a faint hop sting. Taste is of sweet malt, whole kernel corn, and a subtle background hop bite. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Molson XXX Super Premium Beer finishes crisp, refreshing, sort of wet, corny, and surprisingly drinkable. This may be the smoothest high gravity lager on the market. No doubt, it's worth a try.

Gets me fucked up, even better by the pitcher, stage side at a titty bar in port ontario. Use to drink this by he case load in my 20's. a great beer to achieve the ultimate goal of drinking till drunk. The more you drink the better it tastes. Great memories.

Molson XXX

LOOK: Pours a clear golden color, white head forms and has some staying power, but eventually recedes to a ring.

SMELL: Has that cheap beer smell, mainly corn but certainly other adjuncts.

TASTE: Creamy malt and miscellaneous grain sweetness, and a good dose of processed hops that does provide a coarse bitterness. Still finishes on the sweet side. The alcohol is well hidden.

FEEL: Medium bodied, well carbonated, slick on the palate leaving a bittersweet corn flavor behind.

OVERALL: This is much better than I remember. Used to pound these in college.
