pintbypint (2379) - 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 (2070) - Musky, 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.

cfrancis (2152) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 8, 2011
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 (1944) - 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.

swiseman (409) - Fredericton, New Brunswick, CANADA - SEP 2, 2011
from the can: thick white head, some hoppy-flowery aroma. medium carbonation. thick lacings on the glass. noticeable hops (just barely) on the tongue. some hops in the finish. Basically, this comes off as a typical macro brew with a more pronounced shot of hops. In essence, it’s not great. ...but I am going to say it’s the best typical macro-brewed lager that I have ever had. Coors Light, this stuff ain’t.

GarnotingPete (740) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 26, 2011
Bière dorée et limpide, coiffée d’un fin col blanc plutôt éphémère, mais qui laisse néanmoins une fine dentelle au verre. Des arômes difficiles à cerner, légèrement maltés aux accents d’houblons herbacés. Une légère amertume se fait sentir, sans aucun sucre résiduel. Bière relativement mince, à l’effervescence moyenne qui offre, malgré tout, une "finale" légèrement amère quoique assez rapide. Il s’agit ici d’une bière de soif correcte et sans défaut.

2011-08-06. Crisp dark yellow body wtih a small white head. 3+ Sweet grainy malt aroam, bit fruity. 6+ Flavour is similar, sweet fruity character, light bitterness throughout, sweetish fairly well balanced and inoffensive. 6+ Average plus palate. Okay, bit dull. Can from PEI Liquor Store, Borden
