2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This is my "goto" beer. Very average and available a lot of places. Just a good basic beer.
500ml can purchased at Place Bell Arena in Laval, Quebec enjoyed during the LCD Soundsystem concert. The pour is clear golden yellow with carbonation bubbles. The aroma is grainy malt, a bit of generic sweetness. The taste is cereal grain malt, mildly artificial sweetness that has an odd bite to it. As the beer warmed, bit of a watery character. The palate is highly carbonated, light to medium bodied with a sweet watery finish. Small step up from macro lager. AleRider78 (1503) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 27, 2017
Pours a fair size frothy off-white head and has a pale straw coloured appearance. Heavily carbonated. Aromas are mostly wheaty and grainy malts. Faint earthy, grassy hops. Light citrus flavours, grainy malts, wheats. Slightly sweet and bitter but not too offensive. Slight astringent sensation, medium bodied. Slick drying mouthfeel. A good go-to beer. Pretty average but really good for a mass produced ale. Much better than you would expect. punkska101 (2194) - Chambly, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 23, 2017
Draft @Normandin in rdl A: light cereal, macro like aroma, hint of corn syrup. App : clear pale with smallish white head. T/p: light to med body with short bitter finish. Soft to moderate carbonation. O: I feel like I’m 15 again. No such interest in this else than its rather blend but kind of fine thirst quencher. azzurro (508) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 22, 2017
A classic, a reference for me as one of the most common beer with which I grew up. No match for most microbrews. Got this one as a treat after baseball from a team mate. gripweed57 (2978) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - MAY 18, 2017
From old tasting notes. Deep yellow gold color. Sweet malt nose with a touch of fruitiness. Good sweet malt flavor has a light graininess. Good hop balance.

Enjoyable taste of malt, alcohol and sweet grains. Just a subtle amount of hops. Slight caramel taste. Medium/low carbonation. Fresh subtle finish. Very drinkable. This beer is made since 1903 and I feel that’s how a real beer without an overdose of hops and spices should taste like.
This is an ale (macro) and it tastes much better than most of the macro lagers which taste basically nothing. I’ve tested a lot of macro beer, and this beer as a distinctive, much stronger taste (of malt, alcohol and grain) than other beer without being overloaded with hops and other spices like many craft beers. I like to mix it (in the fridge) with Labatt 50. Labatt 50 being another traditional macro ale with a long history, weaker malt taste and more of a fruity taste.
The Molson Export as a distinctive taste which elevates it above most of the macro beers out there.

Aroma and flavor is mild malts, a mild hint of hops and no finish/therefore smooth. markas101 (2530) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - JAN 26, 2017
Tall can, Ann Arbor, MI via Mulmur. Gold, darker than anticipated. Sweet grain aroma. Sharp yet watery flavor. Not much there. Some faint strange sweetness. Maybe very weak caramel. Matwill (101) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 3, 2016
Rating datant du 2 octobre 2015. Toujours goûté en canette, jamais en bouteille. J’pense pas que ça change grand chose, ça reste une ale blonde commerciale grand public, fait exprès pour calmer la soif en grande quantité. DrNosha (2848) - Württemberg, Germany, GERMANY - NOV 17, 2015
