Most underrated beer on the market. Deeper flavour than more popular Molson brands, great aftertaste.

I've never been able to rate this beer acceptingly but here goes. It is a full malt beer even my German cousin tasted no corn. He rated it as a decent Koelsch! which is a full malt German ale brewed in Cologne! After puzzling over it I agree!!

341ml bottle gifted by a friend.

A: Clear yellow hue with one finger of bright white foam and lots of bubbles in the body. Sheets of lacing indicate this is relatively fresh.

S: Grainy malt, mineral, a bit musty. Vague apple-like fruitiness, some grassy hop in the background.

T: Mostly follows nose along with a very faint bitterness.

M: Medium body, crisp carbonation, bone dry lightly bitter finish, minimal aftertaste.

O: A better than expected macro ale that would serve as a decent option in bars and restaurants that only offer Molbatts products.

An obscure offering from Molson. Only available in 24 bottles, bought for $39.99 at The Beer Store.

Look: Gold. Pours a thin white head that dissipates quickly.

Smell: Cereal grains with that classic corny adjunct/cooked vegetable smell.

Taste: Like the smell, but with a tinge of some spicy notes (which probably comes from the hops). I guess this is what gives the beer its identity. Similar to Molson Export.

Mouthfeel: Very low carbonation. Mouthfeel is thin and watery. A little rough around the edges, but still highly drinkable.

Overall: It's a Molson product and tastes like one.

341 mL bottle from a two-four picked up at TBS; packaged Aug 25 2015 and served slightly chilled. I've been curious about this one for years, but its relatively high price and inconvenient format - only sold in 24 bottle cases - have proven to be (previously) insurmountable mental roadblocks.

Looks pretty typical - it pours a clear golden-blonde colour, producing one finger of soapy white froth that fizzles itself out over the next minute or two. A small curtain of lace is deposited; the head itself is survived by a foamy collar and a bubbly film on the surface. Looks fine, but the aroma offers up nothing of real interest - grainy pale malts, boiled vegetable water and some subtle orchard fruit esters are the only descriptors that come to mind.

"Blech" might be a slight overstatement here, but it still about sums up my feelings for this one. An uninteresting, somewhat corny flavour profile that consists of grainy malts, corn chip sweetness and some ale yeast apple-y fruitiness on the back end. It's thin-bodied and kind of watery, with lower carbonation levels than your average macro that result in a smooth mouthfeel. Serviceable when served cold.

Final Grade: 2.9, a C grade. This bottle marks the halfway point of the case I picked up a few days ago, so I've had plenty of time to ruminate on what I think of this beer. Molson Stock Ale's label practically oozes nostalgia - and I say this as someone who is under 30 (and thus too young to actually remember if/when this was popular). The actual beer inside that bottle, though, is bland, borderline swill. The only saving grace for this one is that it goes down the hatch with little effort/fuss when served ice cold. Mediocre even by macro standards; Labatt 50 and Molson Ex would both be preferable.

(Rated this as an American blonde, because I find it has much more in common with that style than with any APA I've ever imbibed. If you go into this beer expecting an actual APA, you'll be disappointed... moreso.)

Corn Corn Corn. What a disappointment. I love my Canadian Ales; this one I had been missing out on due to its very low popularity. Picked up a 24 bottle case for a staggering premium price. Overpowering cheap taste, truly disappointing. Brand wise, the logo and colour scheme are great and I think Molson should revamp this one...first change the recipe. If you're going for beers your dad drank and are a Molson fan then stick with the Export.

Another bland a flavourless lager from Molson. Had this right after Labatt 50 and much preferred the 50. A hint of malty sweetness and nothing else worth noting in this one. A last resort.

As some have said, Molson Stock Ale has a slightly metallic taste, I would say slightly bitter, it may not appeal to younger palates. This and Heineken are my favorite beers. I thought they quit making this, so maybe I can find some!
