Poured a 473ml can into a pint glass. A big three finger head on a very pale yellow. good head retention. Lots of lacing.
Classic adjunct smell.
some corn and malt.
Light body with moderate carbonation.
More of an Adjunct Lager than a German Pilsner, even though is says "Pilsner" on the can. On eof the better ones in it's class.

If u grew up in western/prairie Canada, u drank old style. Ur dad drank old style. At one point, maybe u hated old style.

But there's never been a more consistently good, cheap, American style macro lager. In my opinion. Close to being my fave lager, but Bang for buck wise, it's a 5/5 every time

I’ve been drinking this for years. It’s nothing fancy but it’s cheap and not that bad.

THE BEST PILSNER IN THE ENTIRE PLANET HANDS DOWN... Its the definition of what a pilsner SHOULD be. Yeah there's nothing complex or intricate about the taste, because its absolutely perfectly normal. PERFECT PILSNER 1000/1000

L: Transparent medium yellow/gold, lots of rising bubles and a thin layer of head, lots of lacing!
S: Decent grassy and somewhat citrusy hops and crackery malts
T: Tastes... a little less than good. Pretty dull flavour. There's a bit of citrusy skunky hoppiness then some grainy bready malts. Has a slight medicinal bitterness to it.
F: Pretty light, smooth, a bit foamy. Not much carbonation. Not too dry.
O: Not very enjoyable, just barely okay. Keep looking for an acceptable cheep beer.

Its a beer but not one i would choose. No head, pale straw color with a slight smell of malts

$2 at the LCBO is a great price and i think it was ok for $2

Nothing special, decent for the summer. I fear this will give me a hangover.

Decent utility beer

I brought some of this back from Ontario, solely because it was the beer they drink on FUBAR all the time. It isn't bad. Has an interesting taste, kind of piney and hoppy. It was fairly cheap, different from american beers but not as strong tasting as say a German beer.

If there is ever a CANQuest (tm) Hall of Foam, then I think that my local, in-person trader, @tone77 should be in the first class of inductees. He brings CANs from his myriad travels & then apologizes for some of their quality (or lack thereof)! 8=O Hey, the origins of The CANQuest (tm) take us back to a far less enlightened time, when AALs were the norm & CANs were scoffed at in favor of bottles. Screw bottles! In fact, CANs are now screwing themselves!

From the CAN: "Total Satisfaction Guaranteed 1-800-MOLSON 1"; "After the famous Old Style formula".

This all begs the question, "CAN I get total satisfaction from this CANadian beer in/from a CAN?" The answer is forthCANming, following a Crack! of the vent & a slow, gentle Glug. This raised two-plus fingers of foamy, soapy, rocky, bone-white head with relatively good retention. Color was a gorgeous Golden-Amber (SRM = > 5, < 7) with NE-plus quality clarity, both allowing me to see into the future & calling forth The Gelt Gang of Mammon, Midas & Croesus to have a taste. Nose had a corn aspect, which was not particularly welcome, but nor was it overwhelming as so many have been. Pilsner? Okay, but avec adjuncts. Mouthfeel was medium-to-full, not quite creamy, but definitely big for a Lager of any Style. The taste was actually MUCH cleaner than the nose had led me to expect, but at the same time, it did not really strike me as a GER Pilsner. The maltiness was marred by a slight corn flavor & while I have loved Fritos since childhood, I do not really care for corn in my beer. 8=( Still, it was not as overwhelming as in some examples + this beer also had a light, grassy Noble hop bitterness which managed to assert itself in the face of the adjuncts. Finish had a light malty sweetness, a light hoppy bitterness & a light corn flavor. It really was not all THAT bad & it would be a great lawnmower beer. This is the kind of thing that filled 1950s to 1980s cooler until the Age of Enlightenment ocCANurred. Wanna drink nostalgically? Grab some CANs of this beer!
