Spab (2388) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 11, 2012
473 ml can from LCBO. Pours a clear golden colour with smallish white head. Aroma is corn/grain and a whiff of grassy hops. Things pick up a bit in the taste in which a breadier maltiness comes through with a slightly more prominent grassiness and without any strong vegetal notes. Slightly drying finish. Not great but about as good as it gets from Molson.

JoeMcPhee (8411) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 25, 2011
Pale golden pour with a tight white head. The aroma has a touch of pale pils malt and some light grassy hops. A fairly light bitterness, but it’s decently balanced. Okay - if a bit standard.

pintbypint (2602) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 18, 2011
341ml brown bottle. Golden colour, decent white head, some creamy foam. Nose has grains and some grassy hops. Taste has background grain and bread malt with a little sweetness, some light citrus and grassy hops overtop. Low bitterness, dry grainy finish, a bit of lingering grass in the aftertaste. Average body and carbonation. Did not mind this.

Gethinbeer (2154) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - NOV 27, 2011
Golden yellow colour with a big frothy white head. Medium carbonation. Thin body and texture. Lacks flavour. Big flavour of honey and hint of malt. Overall a weak lager beer. Easy to drink however.

ok i’m gojng to go on record saying this might be the first Molson product i’ve ever had where i can actually taste some hops. the aroma is well......molson. cheap malts, sweet corn, but a touch of what seems like hops. even a little bit of the yeasty maltiness you get from a creemore. mouthfeel is pretty standard, soft carb, very light bitterness. slight hops in the finish with some cheap grain. all and all this is basically a watery creemore lager if you ask me.

Pours a clear golden yellow with a thin white top. Aroma is faint malt and taste is a dull grassy malt and corn. Pass.

whitecap (289) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 1, 2011
Bottle, dark yellow almost amber with small quickly disappearing white head. somewhat malty and barely bitter. notes of corn, citrus, minimal hops. finishes with a nutty aftertaste (peanuts?). Probably one of the better macro beers. Would like to see this replace some of the swell at the local pubs.

northropfrye (2208) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - SEP 10, 2011
Bottle. Reddish colour, some aroma and taste of hops, so there’s a bit of a bitter flavour, but like everything from Rickard’s is underplayed and commercial.
