look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.25

355 ml bottle served cold into a pint glass. Leftovers from a party a couple of weeks ago.

Apperance- clear, rather play golden colour. Small half finger of white head with better retention than expected. Even a trace amount of lace.

Smell - weak grainy aroma with some corn notes. Metallic and slightly vegetative undertones. Nothing offensive.

Taste - a faint flavour of beer, but mostly like beer flavoured tonic water or club soda. Nothing horribly offensive.

Mouthfeel - feels way over carbonated body is super light, but these two factors don't go too well together.

Overall - worse beers exist and as a low carb option for people who don't like beer, this may be viable. Still of you're drinking a beer this light isn't water a better option?

look: 3.75 | smell: 1.25 | taste: 1.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.25

Appearance - Poured from a 473 ml can into a pint glass, Poured a very light clear straw color with 3 fingers foamy head that died fast. Carbonation looks lively enough. Does it look like the style? yes...

Aroma - Corn and water. Mostly water...

Taste - spring water with corn in the background...

Feel - extremely light watery body with prickly carbonation...

Overall - Might as well just drink a Molson Caanadian original... from what a remember the taste was tenfold better.

This is a very reasonable diet beer. Regular Canadian I usually won't touch, but this one, when considering its low calories, is ok. Also, mind you I was very thirsty when I tried this one. Also, never mind the Canadian logo in my profile picture. lol

This tasted like a mix of water and the lightest beer available. I understand the need to watch your calorie intake but just drink water instead please. No flavor reminiscent of a beer.

Molson Canadian Sixty Seven.
The look of it is very light and it's yellow. Smell of hop and of corn. Remind me of the coors light it the Molson Canadian.
The smell of it. Nothing too different from the Canadian. Very similar.
Now the taste of it: well nothing to different than a Molson Canadian a bit lighter. A bit if a different taste to it. It's a bit plastic taste to it.
So overall would I recommend it ?? For man No, for women maybe. If you know what beer taste like don't drink that crap. But for women who likes to drink beer but wanna drink low alcohol percentage and wanna have low calories this beer is made for u.

Yes, you are all right about a lot of things.
This is a very light beer.
This is meant to be a very light beer.
If you are going to a barbecue, or party--like function, and have to drive home, 3 of these has less alcohol than 2 of another standard beer.
If you are working around the house on the weekend, on a hot day, this beer is perfect, because it tastes more like beer than most other light beers, and you can still get your work done.
I actually prefer this to regular Canadian. Had a Canadian the other day by mistake, and wondered how I ever used to drink it.
No, this is not a splendid taste experience, and there are no special food pairings for this beer, but this is a great beer to have in your fridge, if you feel like having A beer, but you know you will need your faculties later on.
Not bad as a summer patio beer, or a business lunch beer, or a performing on stage at a summer festival beer.
This is not a great beer, but it has a place in your beer arsenal.

Molson 67 looks like a beer with less calories - less of everything for that matter. It is so markedly pale as to have virtually no colour at all on some angles. Despite lively bubbles it fails to support any kind of head. It looks anorexic; if it were your friend you'd be concerned for its health.

Molson can spend all the money in the world to advertise and market each of their brands differently, but so long as they keep using inferior ingredients they'll all smell the same. And not even the cleverest commercial or slogan ever conceived will make them smell good. This may have half the calories but it has every bit the foul stench.

Indeed, like most of this brewery's beers, there's little of anything tasteful or notably "beer-like" about it; bubbles and water are obvious but malt and hops are imperceptible. It's no surprise that this drinks like a combination of corn syrup and pool water; after all, it is loaded with industrial (possibly chemical) adjuncts and produced on a massive, highly mechanized scale.

Let's be clear though: the magnitude of a brewery's operations is not what affects quality; in fact, larger operations tend to be more consistent and have far better quality control. Molson, however, is not in the business of making good beer - they're in the business of selling a lot of beer. And when this is the priority it's no surprise the products taste like watered-down HFCS.

The only thing that makes Molson 67 halfway swallowable is that, true to theme, it has much less of that artificially sweet, off-putting, corn syrup-like flavour than standard strength lagers of equivalent nature. Some, however, will feel the diluted profile is a detriment. It didn't have to be that way; alcohol and flavour are not necessarily proportional. I've had plenty of delicious and characterful beers in the 3% range - this, however, is not one of them.

If you’re holding your breath waiting for Molson to make a good beer, be prepared to turn blue in the face and die. Unlike their chief rival, Labatt, who actually took the hint when their profits started diminishing and responded with the respectable Alexander Keith Hop Series, Molson seems content chasing one fad after another and spending all their resources on marketing rather than offering a half-decent product.

473 mL can picked up at TBS; served well chilled. I had this a few years back - and by 'had', I mean an agent left a bunch of free samples behind at the liquor store I used to work at, which was around the time that this beer was initially being launched. As I chugged the contents of a single ice cold bottle just prior to clocking in for my shift, I was pretty sure it was the wateriest, most flavourless beer I'd ever had - and unsurprisingly, I haven't been inclined to return to it until now, when a lack of alternatives has left me scraping the bottom of the barrel.

Pours a clear, pale straw yellow colour, topped with one finger's worth of soapy bone-white head. Very active carbonation; streams of bubbles constantly rush to the surface, reinforcing the head for at least a few minutes before it finally recedes into a thin cap and collar. Lots of lacing, too - one of the better-looking light beers I've had in recent memory. It has that generic 'cheap yellow lager' aroma, with no real distinguishing traits to speak of... corn husk, a little grainy with some vaguely sweet features, and not much else. Typical of the style.

Weak, diluted flavour, but not quite as tasteless as some of the other 'low cal' lagers I've tried in the past. There's a light brushing of grainy malts and corn that vanishes from the palate almost as quickly as it appears. No real wheat malt presence (the label mentions both barley and wheat), and no real aftertaste - just some light malts, carbonation, and then it's gone. Thin-bodied and very watery, with heavy carbonation levels that give this brew a spritzy, lively feel in the mouth.

Final Grade: 2.6, a forgettable C-. A re-tasting of Molson Canadian 67 hasn't changed my opinion much - this is still an exceptionally watery, bland lager - but compared to certain other low-calorie light lagers (e.g. Sleeman Clear or Michelob Ultra), this one at least resembles an actual beer, so I can't grade it too harshly. These low-cal lagers aren't brewed for the average BA; they are brewed for calorie-counting women and people who don't like the taste of beer. Seen through the context of those goggles, this is at least a decent light lager, but there's no reason that anyone who falls outside of those categories really needs to bother with this.

Bottle: Poured a pale golden yellow color beer with a small bubbly head. Aroma is bland with light adjunct notes. Taste is one of the most bland I have ever tasted with almost zero taste and light adjunct notes. Body is super light with soda-like carbonation. Wow talk about a beer not tasting like much at all.

look: 2 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5

Appearance: It has a pale yellow color to it. It has a half inch white head (after a heavy poor) that dies down really fast and leaves minimal lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitly give out hints of sweet grains and corn.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has a very bland sweet grain and corn taste.

Mouthfeel: It has a medium carbonation with a very light overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied with very bland flavors and aromas.

341ml bottle, at the southside Canadian Brewhouse. I was driving, but wanted another beer.

This beer pours a clear, very pale straw colour, with one fat finger of bubbly and fizzy dirty white head, which collapses in a near instant, actually leaving a few specks of streaky lace around the glass.

It smells of thin adjunct malt (corn husk, mostly - or is it leastly?) - the kind where 'sweet' is a leading attribute - a hint of nail polish remover, and mildly chlorinated water. The taste is gritty corn mash, steeped in household cleaner-tinged hard water, and a barely perceptible musty, um, something - best to leave it at that.

The carbonation is average, just a meek frothiness throughout, the body the epitome of light-weight, watery, clean (sanitized would be a better word), and smooth, I guess. It finishes with more of that chemical-touched hard water sensibility.

Diluted Canadian, in a nutshell. Nothing overtly offensive, if you really don't care that you're drinking a half a beer. Maybe have a glass of actual water in between real beers if you need to pace your intake, though after that pile o' Kactus chips I just inhaled, maybe this brew's whole 67 calories isn't such a bad idea - no, not this way, it isn't.

A: Pours a pale clear yellow with hardly any head. Keeps a ring around the glass and left a little bit of lacing.

S: Not much there for the smell. Small notes of grains and corn.

T: Same as the nose. Grainy and corn but it's very watery.

M: Light carbonation with a very light body.

D: I can see with the 67 calories how some people may be attracted to this beer. There's nothing gross about it there's just nothing to it. It's so light that you can drink these like water.

355ml can poured into pint glass june24 2010

A the palest straw yellow you will find but it has a massive amount of bubbles feeding a thumbs width of bone white head that has surprisingly good retention and even leaves a few partial rings of lace

S banana? why do I smell banana? that's weird, some sweet grains and grassy hops and candied corn

T not much and what I do taste I don't like, skunky corn and sour sweet malt

M over carbonated tonic water

D drinkable in the same way waters drinkable, If there was a plague outbreak I would drink this as a safe alternative to water

I'm sorry but if you concerned about calories DON'T DRINK BEER!!! and I find it funny how the can has 70 calories not 67 perhaps they should rename it Molson 70 when sold in cans

It's kind of unfair to apply normal beer standards to this beverage. It has half to a third of the calories of a regular beer, or half of what you'd get from a tall glass of skim milk. Yeah, it's watery. Of course it is. But it's fizzy, refreshing, and not at all unpleasant tastiing. It's not a great beer, but it's a nice alternative to diet pop, Perrier or flavoured water.

I'm not one to turn away a nice light beer. However, this is ridiculous. A beer has got to taste like a beer, and this doesn't in my opinion.
When they say "light beer" that's exactly it.... LIGHT! Tastes way too watery for my liking. It is easy to go down though, so I guess if you're looking for something to refresh you, this may be it. But honestly, water will do the same.

Bottle from the singles bin LCBO store 200- A very very pale straw pour with a surprisingly long lasting bleached white froth. I'm immediately awestruck at just how much corn they must have used in this. It smells like a can of creamed corn and straw. I just shat myself in horror of all this corn. Thankfully it isn't as corny in the flavour department, but it sure is sweet and grainy, a bit grassy. Very light, easy drinking with literally no finish. I guess that is what they are aiming for. Overall this is shite, but I can see where it appeals to Joe Q. Poop Face and his hipster douchebag friends.
