Had this on tap. It came with almost no head. It has a nice colour to it but the first taste was disappointing with virtually no identifiable flavour. Still went down alright, better than many macros. After the second pint it tasted OK.

Golden yellow, smallish white head. Aroma has some bready malt in it, while the flavour is dominated by sweet slightly fruity maltiness and just a tiny bit of bitterness. Light palate and body. Surprisingly drinkable and inoffensive but nothing special. Enjoyed with Callie at her going away party.

I have to admit that I wasn’t expecting too much when I bought this bargain basement beer but I was pleasently surprised. Pours a clear straw colour with a decent head. Light malt aroma and a decent malt taste.

Considering the price, and the other beers in the price range, this beer is nothing short of amazing. I concur with the ’best molson offering’ comment as well. A good time to buy cheap. Beer itself is clean, crisp and fairly balanced, a bit on the light side, flavour wise, but still decent for barbecues and post-rugby drinking.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 1, 2004
Sweet, doughy and malty aroma with some floral hops apparent. Decent white head diminishes to thin cover and ring atop a pale golden body with nice visible carbonation. Mild and sweet with a decent balancing bitterness. Gentle carbonation and creamy mouthfeel. Light body is a bit watery. While I’m not buying into the "What a great BoPils from a macro-brewer!" craze, I can see how this might be enjoyable. Bottle. Thanks, CapFlu!

This beer is surprisingly good! Very malty with a slight bitterness. Appearance is a bit piss-yellow, but it makes up for it in flavour. Probably the best offering by Molson, and also the cheapest. Give it a try!

Damage (77) - London, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 25, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 26, 2005 Twenty-four bucks for a case. Cheap beer. You know, for cheap beer, this ain’t half bad. Molson has a decent Czech influenced beer here. Yes, Molson! I know, it feels weird saying that. Giver a whirl to chase back those expensive imports. (341ml bottle)

Brewmaster88 (53) - Petrolia, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 25, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 14, 2004 This is a steal for 24 bucks a case. The first time I bought this beer I thought it was alright but nothing special for a value beer. By the end of the 24 I went out and bought another case. This beer tastes better everytime I drink it for some reason. Nice golden colour and impressive head when poured. Deliciously malty, a wonderful beer that costs 1/3 less than just about anything else out there. Tastes better out of a bottle than when poured.

Habman (23) - London, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 19, 2004
Gave ’er a whirl, at some $9 cheaper than most 2-4’s I figured what the heck, probably no worse no better than other bargain beers. First gulp immediately put me in mind of Old Vienna. I have to say I am impressed with this beer in context of other macro lagers. By mid glass there is still a nice white head and a bit of lacing. The floral hoppy aroma is coming through and a quite decent malty mouthfeel yields to a nice balanced finish. Worth the price and more deserved of the lager designation than other Molson offerings.

What’s going on here. Molson has one good beer that I don’t mind drink.... I’m confused..... your yellow with a white head stuff. Malty and more robust then anything else molson has brewed. Has flavour as well.... bready dough....hmmmm
