Poured into a narrow pilsner glass: color is straw gold, head is off to bright white, nice bubbly lacing on the glass, very carbonated

Smell is very grainy, very flat flavored, not enticing. worst quality of the beer and only gets worse as the beer warms.

Taste better than many adjunct lagers, funny to think this is tagged as a malt liquor, but i guess thats where it falls when you put these ingredients together and get this result. Barley malt is barely present with a heavy grain focus flavor, corny, hops are flat in flavor.

Mouthfeel is ok at the start, but as it warms the brew becomes sharp from the carbonation and harsher grain flavors. I did have a thought that this brew was not so bad, but give it 5 minutes to warm up and it shows its true colors.

Overall, not so bad compared to many similar in the style and at this strength, but you need it icey cold to numb your tastebuds.

Super malty, super sweet, unbalanced, almost no hops to speak of, garbage. It reminds me of Malta Goya soda. It puts on a good buzz if that's all you're going for but there are tastier ways to get drunk. I'd rather drink twice as many Coors Lights than half as many Molson XXX's. I don't hate Molson Canadian but I cannot stand this Molson varietal.

Not as bad as they say. It's Canadian beer and is a decent option in upstate NY

Poured from a 24 OZ can into a pint glass. Yes, I lack common sense.
This beer is not horrid, but it will not make my "gosh, I am craving a beer list". . . ever! It is made to impair and it does it well. The flavor is fairly rich with cereal and corn. Not much more to say but , it is sold mostly in gas stations here in GA.

After drinking this beer I didn't expect to make a review. But it scores so low that I can't help but say that it's not that bad. Don't get me wrong I wouldn't drink this to often. But it's not that bad.

First beer I got drunk on. Stored behind my garage to hide from my parents for about 6 months before drinking. Beer was absolutely ruined, and it ruined me. It will always be a memory of the reason it took me another 5 years to get into beer.
