a. Can from friends fridge. Can't really give it more than an average rating since it was out of a can.

s. Very present grains. Almost smells like a fresh haystack.

t. Grains and cooked corn. Very light. No noticable hop. Malt is Awol. Just a dry corn husk finish.

m. Crisp with a slightly dry finish. Not bad.

d. This is average drinking at best. For the average light beer drinker, this would work. I will be seeking out more flavorful beers.

I really do not care for this beer or any molson beer, it gives me really bad gas. Light color and body with no hops or malt just a bunch of corn and rice. My mother in law comes and she brings the crap, so i have to drink it and my wife puts up with the gas.

12 ouncer w/o freshness indication. Pours very light straw, with a feeble white head, minor lacing noted. Faint nose of corn/rice. This is not gonna be pretty. Here goes...taste is watery, adjuncts, nasty in general. Lawn mower beer, at best. Something about this stuff tells me 2 or 3 would lead to a nasty headache. Pass this macro, water waster by.

Molson CANadian Light in a CAN as part of the CANQuest! CAN it be for real?

I decided to try a calibration beforehand and drank a regular CANadian before having its Light version. My pour created a fluffy two fingers' worth of bone-white head with low retention. It fizzled and bubbled with CO2, but ultimately fell harder than a drunken sod in the dark on Sunday morning. The color was a lighter, paler yellow than its leaded counterpart. Nose was pretty much the same - a sweetish, cereal-laden lagerish smell that I have grown accustomed to. Boooring! Mouthfeel was actually fuller, more effervescent than regular, but the taste was definitely lessened by whatever process is used to create a light version of a beer. This was almost bland and watery, like a broken pencil - pointless. Ho freakin' hum! The finish was equally snooze-worthy.

12oz. bottle: This beer pours a pale yellow color, with a bit of a white fizzy head. Well, it doesn’t smell bad, it just doesn’t smell like much at all. I get a weak nose of some sweet malts and that macro adjuct aroma. The taste isn’t offensive, just watered down. Typical thin light beer, with a hint more flavor than its American counterparts.

I fell like all light beers are the same but thsi one isnt as bad as some of the ones Ive had. I usually have a lot of these and its non-light counter part when i got to Buffalo apparently Canadian beer is big over there. jaja Anyway the beer is a light gold color with very little head that quickly disappears. Tatse of some maltines and some hops during gth after tste a smooth mouthfeel that isnt dry at all. Smell is mostly og grain and alcohol.

bottle - 12 oz

Appearance - Light golden color with lots of bubbles and a meager head.

Aroma - Very weak aroma.

Taste - Has a light nutty flavor. Little taste and very little aftertaste.

Mouthfeel - Thin bodied and watery. Not bitter. Smooth to drink

Drinkability - Not a bad beer for drinking lots of very quickly. A good drinking game beer or one to pound while watching some television. Not a bad light beer.
