COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Molson uses the exclusive dry brewing process to create a beer with lower sweetness, and then carefully balances the beer by expert use of high quality German and Pacific Northwestern aroma hops, added liberally and very late in the kettle boil. The result is a different beer with very little bitterness and aftertaste, higher alcohol and a pleasant balance of hop, esters and floral aromas.

Well, I started my journey on this stuff at Expos games, so the rating is due to sentimentality. Itís really not bad, no intricate flavor, and it goes down easy. Itís like hammering down water, no bitterness, and crisp finish, not as horrible as people say. Wish they had it in the states.

Fizzy yellow pour, head lasts 2 seconds longer than its bretheren. Grainy, light sulphur in the aroma - odd. More on the sweet side, very light corn, grainy. Light body and higher carbonation. For a macro beer you could do far worse I guess.

Can at YYZ lounge. Was hoping for something different than standard Molson. Pretty similar but more bitter, less sweet.

Golden straw color with a finger of head for 20 seconds. Smell is bland sweetness, hay, floral, cut grass. Not as sweet as it smells, almost tastes like a ice beer. A tad rough around the edges. Not dry per say, ah well

Brilliant straw color. White 2 finger head lasting 2 minutes with poor lacing. Dull. Flavors of corn and grains with a hint of skunk. Super faint bitter taste with an alcohol aftertaste. Light body with ok carbonation. Faint and short bitter dry finish. Overall : Taste like dirty water.

Aroma is bland sweet malts and sulphur. Taste is very dry basic malts and generic light bitterness. Appearance is a clear straw body and a thin pearl head that retains poorly.

"on tap last visit to NY. clean malts and ever so slightly bittering hops. fairly crisp and clean but a lingering somewhat unpleasant aftertaste and nothing at all to rave about. Not a 1% beer, as rated so far, but not good either."

Yup, Iím getting closer to being almost done with the BMC stuff. Almost there, well, hereís my take on this one. Always had in a pint glass. The appearance was always a decent looking yellow color with a decent transparency about it. There was always no head and there almost always was never any lacing. The smell had some cooked/burnt corn/rice sort of thing going on. The taste was just sweet and not balanced. The palate was mainly a light on the body and had a very good sessionability about it. Overall, this wasnít a bad AAL, mostly just an average one.

Bottle (Old Notes)-Pours golden with a white head. Aroma of corn, grains, and grass. Taste of the same with some sweetness. This light bodied brew is just another variant on the pale lager.
