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.

Looks and feels like your typical Molson going down but a bit heavier of course with more alcohol bite. Decent if you're looking for something average but will take much less to get a good buzz from.

Not bad, but not great. Although it has a clean, crisp feel and finish, the flavor seems a bit medicinal to me. In my opinion, regular Molson is better.
