Had this on on tap and had thought that it was no longer brewed. Tasted very macro but it did go down real easy.

This beer has been misclassified, but you’d have a hard time finding anyone who cares. This is the O’Keefe brand lager known as Old Vienna that molson bought out in the seventies. It still bears the blue lable and OKeefe knight. Molson has kept the OKeefe Old Vienna (O.V.) formula pretty well untouched. OV is a Canadianized mega-brewer version of the sweeter /maltiervienna lagers...some say the attempt was to make a marzen. It is sweeter than most Canandian mega brews.
I was introduced this beer was when my high school buddy used to snich a few of his dad’s beers. I never really liked this beer then so I have had no desire to buy it regularly since. I had one recently at a pub down town and I realized it isn’t as bad as I remembered but is still pretty undistictive aside from the cloying finish.
Pours a darker straw color, small white head that dissipates quickly, medium carbonation, smells of cooked grain sweetness and adjunct aroma (corn syrup?). Starts crisp then sits with a me light malty body then finishes thinly with a mildly cloying after taste.
Not a really memorable beer but it has been a staple in Canadian beer stores for 50 years so It must have a following among beer drinkers.

Ugly yellow. Light aroma of pale malt and corn. Funky off flavors coupled with grainy malt and slightly skunky hops. Not good.

Fairly good for Molson. A bit of a bitterness in the palate, but other than that, pretty predictable.

I had a can of this from a friend and for an everyday later in the night beer it is not bad. You could do better but not too bad!

If someone moved to Windsor and it’s the only beer on tap at the dive bar across the street it wont seem so bad.
