Can (old Notes)-Pours a clear golden with a small head. Aroma of corn sweetness, and slight hops. Taste of the same. Just another light bodied Canadian lager.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle, purchased at the Co-Op. Light golden, mediocre head with poor retention. Aroma is chemical-tainted grains. Harsh grainy flavour, thin. This tastes like shit.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
341mL bottle purchased eons ago in Edmonton, likely at Chateau Louis Liquor Store. From my notes. Pour was pale golden with foamy white head settling to no lacing. Aroma of light malts and corn. Taste is very slightly better than the average macro. Except for the label, there was nothing else memorable about this beer.

330ml bottle sample. I will never forget when my father brought home a ton of it from out west. From what I remember it was a lot better than a lot of the other products Molson offers.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Last time I saw this on the shelves in Calgary was around 1995. Apparently my old tasting notes say: "Better than Molson Canadian and after drinking 4 supercans I had no hangover". Wow....was I ever young once or what? I remember this as being thin and watery but with a touch more hops than usual Molson ales/lagers.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
If you try you can smell malt. It looks like weak apple juice. A bit of a bitter malt flavour that takes a few sips to find acceptable. No palate. It gets points for being available only in the SK (it’s NOT actually retired since I just bought this the other day) but why isn’t the beer called Calgary available in alberta? Since it’s brewed in Edmonton?

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pours golden yellow, Almost no head.Sweet corny aroma. very fresh, But a bit too corny tasting. Pretty standard boaring canadian mass produced Lager. It is kind of odd that you Can’t buy the beer called Calgary in Calgary, or anywhere in alberta for that matter, However, I don’t really feel all that cheated that we can’t buy it here.

0.9 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
So let me see if I’ve got this straight. Calgary Beer is made in Edmonton, and only sold in Saskatchewan? Golden-straw colour. Has that distinctive ’union made’ aroma of cooked apples and fusel alcohol. Quick, watery palate is merciful, showing more cooked apple, a hint of spice and very faint malt but less fusel. This would make a good retrobeer.

1.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Nice looking bottle and logo but diappointing beer. Overcarbonated pale yellow pour with typical canadian ale/lager taste, but more watery and thin.
