250 ml can. Clear but darker yellow colour. Funky pils like aroma and sweet corn. On the palate it is gross with a bit of a alcohol bite but that is being generous. Terrible beer but I have to say GO Habs GO! Playoffs hockey baby!

Whaaaaaat? First thing that comes to mind when I see all these poor reviews on this website! This is your traditional Molson Canadian beer, only they upped the ABV to 6% and they consider this a "strong beer"!!! Please, somebody correct me technically but I believe a strong beer is 8%. Unless a strong beer is considered anything higher than 5%? But then again Cariboo (5.5%) doesn’t consider themselves a strong beer. We all know that a 3% increase in beer gives it a sharp edge (think any 8% strong beers), but this 1% increase is definitely not proportionate- in other words- it’s stronger, but you can’t taste the difference. The beer is very palatable, its is very smooth and leaves hardly any after taste in your mouth. This is a great size for chugging or shot-gunning, if you have trouble with a normal size beer (this can is 30% smaller compared to normal size beer can of 355 mL) Reason I bought this beer was because it seemed cheap compared to other beer, an 8-pack for just under $14 after tax where I live. All in all it is a great beer and it’s relatively cheap.

Viper666 (2763) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 3, 2013
Canette 250ml. De couleur dorée pâle et claire. Nez de maïs sucré, léger de grains de malt pâle sucré avec des traces d’alcool et de houblon herbeux (gazon mouillé). Mince en bouche avec un pétillement myoen-doux ainsi qu’une texture légèrement sirupeuse. Léger goût de grains de malt pâle sucrés dès l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute rapidement un goût de maïs assez sucré puis en finale l’on retrouve de faibles notes de houblon herbeux avec des traces d’alcool. Post-goût court, composé d’un résiduel de grains sucrés.

Great beer! It is one of my favorites and i have always liked it, it is great for a relaxation, or for a party, it’s the best of both.

Metalchopz (2121) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - APR 10, 2012
Originally rated January 2005. Sampled from a cute 250ml silver can and warns to drink very, very chilled. Alrighty then ! Poured a typical golden lager colour with hardly any carbonation. The white head was quite good though, bubbly and stayed a minute or two. Not bad, some lacing. Malts are pretty much the only nose. Pretty sweet malts, judging from the mouth. Very smooth for a 6% ABV. Marketed for those who like to get hammered before a rock show... easily portable and concealable in a denim coat.

Just like Molson Canadian except with a higher alcohol. So feel free to read my Molson Canadian Review for an accurate description of this beer.

250ml can. Maltier than Molson Canadian Lager, it’s maybe better than regular Canadian, but still pretty bad. Shotgunnable.

Presentation: It was poured from a slim 8.5oz can into a pint glass. A freshness date is printed on the bottom of the can. The can also has the abv listed at 6%. Appearance: The body has a pure golden color with great clarity and some visible carbonation. From the pour it makes a tall white head of foam. This quickly settles down to a wisp thin film which make some slick spotty lacing. Smell: As I had expected it has a light aroma with a pale biscuity malt and very faint grassy hops. Taste/Palate: The base is a pale malt with a plain biscuity and saltine cracker like character. It has a dry overall taste with very light hop flavor and bitterness. The palate has a smooth almost creamy texture with soft carbonation. Notes: For the style its average. It’s not really exciting but it is clean and the 8.5oz can is easy to put down quickly.
