UPDATED: MAR 29, 2005 My favorite of the íCanadian Standardsí, which isnít 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.

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.

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.

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 thereís 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. Itís pretty refreshing to watch a ball game and tip these back. Donít think Iíd be a repeat buyer though.

A beer of my youth. I remember It tasted ok when Oíkeefe made it. Ever Since Molson bought them out this beer just tastes bad.

As I walked up to the "Inn" it looked abandoned, and down a couple of broken down hallways I found an old man selling beer and this is what he had, so I purchased some and headed back to the lake. The surprise? It is actually not bad. Well made with a pleasing lager sweetness and no creamed corn flavor so typical of the style.

Nice malt and hop flavor with clean finish, much better than Canadian, can only seem to find in Canada though.
