When youíre at the Dome watching a Flames game, and it is served cold, itís somewhat tolerable. Otherwise, as far as this beer goes, thereís nothing íCanadianí about it. Just another dull tasting major brand mainstream beer. Whatís really funny is that some of my American friends actually think itís really good. I think it gives Canada a bad rep personally.

Bottle: Some of these are always left over in the fridge after a family holiday. Decided to drink one during a recent fridge evacuation. Iíve had it before, but this was for my official "rate". This beer is crap, just like the rest of these macro brewed pale lagers. Metallic, grainy, mild corn, a hint of stale & staunch hop earthiness, substantial amounts of carbonation. Watery, sharp, & not very good. Drink cold, as it picks up that same, funky sweet corn flavor when it starts to warm up. Better yet, donít drink at all.

Corn yellow color thin head. Smells of corn, bread, and hops, taste the same. Watery and smooth, probably the best of Molsonís offerings. Always refreshing, a very good lager.

This is the quintessential Canadian beer. This is a beer for the average Canadian. Great looking, better tasting, always consistent and always satisfying.

Transfer from BA review on 12-30-12- Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance- Pours a golden color with a two finger fizzy head. The head fades relatively quickly to leave almost no lacing. Smell Ė The nose is very light and consists of a little bit of corn and a light herbal hop and rice smell. Taste Ė The taste begins with some malty and bready flavors and a light corn sweetness. As the flavor advances the bready flavors are lost to an increase in corn flavor. More toward the end of the taste a light citrus hop along with a artificial sweetness and cardboard/paper taste come to the tongue. Mouthfeel ĖThe body of the beer is on the slightly lighter side with a carbonation level that is a little on the higher side. Both decent for the style, but nothing too exceptional. Overall- For an adjunct this is not one I would likely go for. It is drinkable, but not anything I would like to drink on any occasion.

355 ml can. Like drinking water with a bit of malt in it. The kind of beer you get to taste when visiting family and being offered one...

It is what it is. Itís not going to change the world. It is however refreshing on a hot day by the pool or beach or in most situations when you want a cheap decent beer. Its a typical macro lager. I think itís a little sweeter than some of the other ones out there. Overall, itís nothing beer snobs are going to flip out about but it is what it is and itís been around for a while so itís obviously done something right.

Bright golden yellow appearance, medium head. Corny and grainy aroma, some malts, light hops. Light and watery, refreshing. Decent Pale Lager.

Bottle at a wedding. Pours clear pale yellow. Aroma has nothing interesting. Creamy taste, otherwise dull. About as good as I remember it being.

UPDATED: AUG 23, 2014 Essentially flavorless beer with some unpleasant hops and slight astringency on the finish. No, Canada

Fitting first rating. 5% Bottle from my brotherís fridge, half and half in a shaker. This is a Canadian classic. Light colour, minimal lace. Deeper gold than most American lagers. Aroma is sweet grain and a hint of malt. In the mouth this is as youíd expect, typical lager body, this goes down easy. Taste is more grain, wet cardboard, rubber bands. Sweetness on the finish Iím not too fond of. You can definitely do worse.
