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.

I feel bad giving this brew such a poor review. I can vaguely recall having some great times with XXX, when I was"younger". This was the holy grail, XXX was the ultimate party beer.

It doesn't taste too bad when it's ice cold. And it rocks you pretty hard, which is the point, eh?

I'm a big fan of Molson Canadian, and so far, I think I'm the only one in my neighborhood who says that. At the liquor store I work in, nobody buys the twelve packs, and the only Molson product that moves is Molson Ice. Nonetheless, I had a friend who went to Canada pick me up a twelve pack of a Molson beer they didn't carry in the states and he returned with a twelve pack of Molson XXX. Had no idea Molson was also known to bulk-package their own signature malt liquor, but you can never predict beer nowadays.

The beer is your archetypal malt liquor, with a surprisingly heavy bottle boasting thick glass. It's a sweeter beer, with high tones of corn husk, sweetness, and a sharp alcohol bite that gives you 7.3% abv with no subtly whatsoever. It's gonna take me a while to get rid of this twelve pack, given I cannot session this beer. Not bad, but nothing special, and a sharp downfall from the greatness of Molson Canadian.
