Pours a typical light yellow color with a decent amount of foam. Aroma is pretty bland at first though I detect hints of corn adjunct and some sweetness. Taste is much of the same, sweet and yet some bitterness on the tongue. Nothing too impressive or offensive at the same time. Tastes like Molson Canadian, except lighter of course. I would give it a fair rating.

This is a pretty decent light beer from Molson. It pours a nice, light golden colour with a small white head. The aromas are malty and bready with a kiss of hops. The taste is mildly malty, very light and not hoppy at all. The mouthfeel is thin, but not too watery and the drinkability is good as well.

A solid light beer, almost as good as yuengling traditional lager light...

The appearance, smell, and taste of this light beer, are definately more subdued in the canned version, as compared to the bottled version.

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.

Clear very light gold color, like many a light american lager. Almost no head. Smell is slightly grassy with malt, but does have som adjunct tones. Taste is relatively bland, just light malt, and no noticable hops. No better or worse than many american light lagers, just another choice.

Pale yellow color with a huge white head that quickly dissipates. The nose is grainy with some bitterness. The flavor has a little corn added the the grains. Light overcarbonated body stings my tounge. I suppose a Canadian some where may enjoy this brew.

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.
