Can share thanks to Homer321 via BooostiousIPAious. Pours a brilliantly clear light golden color. Light sweet corn adjunct character and light boost notes. Crisp, slightly fruity, corn, smooth. Very well balanced.

Similar to Molson Hi-Dry in that people drank this to get hammered when I was in high school. Among metalheads the XXX and black+silver branding were a big hit, the taste not so much. But hey you were drunk faster & had to drink less of the stuff so thatís good isnít it?

This is a great fallback beer (not a compliment) but definitely not a fine brew. The screw-off cap is a clue to its taste. Pouring an almost Budlike yellow, it spawns a relatively thin head that dissipates after a minute. The aroma smells weakly beerlike, but is offputting. This one is best characterized as íthiní when looking at it, and at over 7% ABV, the alcoholic overtones are overwhelming. Its aftertastes hangs on long after drinking it so much that itís hard to tell if this is a really bad pilsner or a lager. This lager gives Colt45 a run for its money, but Iíd rather drink the Colt. If youíre looking for an overdose without taste, Molson XXX is a good pick.

Clear Pale Yellow with a filmy head and a very high amount of carbonation. Strong smell of booze, cereal grains, pale malts, grassiness and some skunkiness. Tastes like burnt cardboard, malts, booze, grassiness and skunkiness. Body is light and crisp but the carbonation is strong. Yeah, this was pretty bad.

Dacrza (648) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - SEP 1, 2013
DATE TASTED: August 30, 2013 ... GLASSWARE: 22 oz. pilsner glass... OCCASION: watching The Tree of Life and trying to see what the director sees...APPEARANCE: pale golden effervescent body that holds a half-finger, off-white oily head; appears to be a pilsner; tracing is surprisingly consistent... AROMA: high-pitched doughy malts; toasted oats and cereal--not raunchy, but not appealing...PALATE: thin, slightly textured with the warmth of alcohol overtly at the throat; thirst quenching, yes...TASTE: blandly doughy; highly malty--the 40 ounce variety that makes this bitter and slightly abrasive... OVERALL: the XXX appeals for a purely frat-boy infatuation--I recall a good friend proudly plopping this on our curb, proclaiming the party to be "on"...otherwise, this lager scores a few points for not punishing with the alcohol, but t is worth seeking out almost solely for the alcohol per dollar ratio....

Pours clear golden with white head. Aroma of corn and some booze. Taste brings the same flavors and some butter. A little cardboard too. Thin palate. Finish is buttery corn. Yay!

Aroma of corn.

Also some nasty, and some stank.

Molson XXX has a thin, stark-white head, a deep, golden appearance, lots of bubble streams, and a minimum amount of residual lacing. The aroma is bold- sweet grain and a faint hop sting. Taste is of sweet malt, whole kernel corn, and a subtle background hop bite. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Molson XXX Super Premium Beer finishes crisp, refreshing, sort of wet, corny, and surprisingly drinkable. This may be the smoothest high gravity lager on the market.
