2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Probably the first beer I tried when I was a child... stored in my fatherís cellar in the old stubby bottles... dusty and a bitter, flat, overaged mess by the time I got around to it (probably about a decade after it was purchased) but a recent venture brought it back to life. Not as bad as I remembered, but probably not as good as carling.

This has to be the best beer you can get for a $6.00 12-pack. Not offensive in anyway and quite pleasurable to drink. OV, you are a pour mans dream.

super light pale veary watered down look super crabinaded. smell is of apple, sweet malt, piss? Taste is veary watery apple,sour?/sweet? taste the carbination. Like a light watery apple juice on a pale lager side not like the appl malt liquors they do. This beer sucks.

I had a bottle of this after having a bottle of Molson Export. After drinking the export, I noticed that OV has absolutely no taste. And Export is pretty crappy. I hate rating macro crap.

A smooth acompaniment to a Bali dish, quite good. To agree with leedsfan, it seemed to be more popular in the olídays. Not bad still.

Carbonization galore with grainy taste and an unexpected bitter finish. Essentailly a consistantly skunky beer.

Okay OV is pretty simple stuff. smoother than Budwesier, kind of crisp, not too much. The least pretentious of the Molson line. It doesnít try to be what it isnít and it good at that. They used to sponsor five pin bowling, and is currently about as common.
