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 father’s 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.

UPDATED: MAR 29, 2005 My favorite of the ’Canadian Standards’, which isn’t saying much. Very drinkable, happy little beer.

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.

I’ll take a Canadian macro-lager over an American one anyday.

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

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

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Rated while drinking: Pours the color of yellow corn with an unattractive diminishing white head. Actually has a teensy bit of hops in the aroma. Weird bottle smell though. Tastes pretty mainstream, but surprisingly nothing too "off". Probably because there’s actually hops present in the sea of bad malt and adjuncts. Nothing going on in the palate; carbonated water feel. But drinkable. Had no idea what this was, but picked up a 12 pack at Wegmans for 6 dollars. It’s pretty refreshing to watch a ball game and tip these back. Don’t think I’d be a repeat buyer though.

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