rondphoto (2891) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - JUL 7, 2015
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear pale golden color, white head, waves of lace, lots of rising carbonation. Aroma is the corn and light malt aroma consistent with most "big box" beers. Taste is minimal malt and a strong shot of adjunct that moves quickly through the palate to a finish that has a pinch of hops and a tiny bit of sour. Not so much bad, as it is uninteresting.

Atom (1777) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 8, 2015
12pz bottle pours a clear pale golden/yellow with a large white head. Aroma of dry grassy hops, bordering on skunky, grain and dry malt. Mellow taste of corn grain and malt, dry tasting yeast and mild grassy hops. Not a bad lager.

kramer (5360) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 30, 2015
Bottle. Pours a clear yellow body with just a few bubbles of white head. The nose and flavor are equally awful, all corn and wet soggy grain with zero hops or redeeming qualities whatsoever. This is rather skunky and amazingly bad, even for a Molson product. I mean, I don’t expect much in the way of flavor, but it’s usually tolerable. Light bodied and fizzy. This stuff is pretty gross.

Jabah (207) - Winter Park, Florida, USA - APR 10, 2015
This is a sub-average beer, but not too bad.....drinkable. More of a daytime, lawnmower beer. I prefer it to the American lagers, but still would rather have Molson Ice, or their Export Ale....or better yet, Labatts Blue!

JBPortland (1183) - Portland, Maine, USA - DEC 20, 2014
12oz bottle pours crystal clear golden yellow with medium head. Nose is faint lemon, grain, corn, cereal. Taste is watery cornbread, corn flakes, cereal, cracker, mild bitterness. No real hops outside of a whisper of lemon you really have to dig for. Finish is mild bitter corn flakes, watery, a hint of apple. Not good, not bad, not anything, it’s just...nothing. Corn water.

MacBoost (1518) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - DEC 5, 2014
Bottle from wegmans. Pours a golden color with a white head, poor retention. Aromas of grassy hops and cereals. Taste is semi sweet. Flavors of corn and grass. Thin.

GIJOE (927) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - NOV 2, 2014
Pours pale yellow with a thin, fizzy head that's mostly gone in 10-15 seconds. Faint cider-like scent. Taste is sweet. Thin, fizzy beer. Drinkable, but not remarkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

" can be a decent, crisp beer when it’s not skunky, but unfortunately that it not very often. not enough good to overcome this. not at all recommended."

Lancer01080 (2) - Palmer, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 11, 2014 does not count
Liked the aroma and the flavor was consistent with each one. A pleasant beer to have at the end of the day and/or with friends. No bite to it.

Vcoggins (53) - Cypress, Texas, USA - OCT 4, 2014
Gold straw. Two inch white head dissipates quickly. Typical adjunct aroma of corn, grass, some light malt. Flavor of light hops and corn. Finishes sweet with grass and more light hops. Not bad for an adjunct lager but not something I would really ask for given another choice.
