[Eyes] Golden beer... the head retention is normal for this style
[Aroma] lager yeast fruitiness over its delicate malt. Some hops are in
[mouth] Is like Budweiser or corona, but with more hops and malt Its medium bodied and gently crisp
Serving type: bottle
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. mrmickeym (1) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 5, 2017 does not count
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 (2450) - 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 (91) - 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.

341ml Flasche. Dunkelgelbes Bier mit schönem festem Schaum. Sehr süsser und leicht seifiger Duft. Wenig Kohlensäure. Blumiger Antrunk. Dann Grass und Getreide. Etwas Säure im Abgang. matbigrey (118) - Mascouche, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 14, 2015
350 ml can. To tell you the truh, this beer is kind of a guilty pleasure for me... It might be the only commercial beer I like. Very crisp, almost no aroma sadly, dry finish with a tint of biterness at the very end, no real flavors going for it but it feels like an ale for sure. When I’m in a bar that has nothing but junk beers, Molson Export will be my pick Bierdimpfe (640) - Quebec, CANADA - NOV 7, 2015
Brilliant deep straw color with a 1 finger head lasting 2 minutes and lively activity.
Faint aromas and flavors of grains and corn with some lemony fruitiness. Crisp bitter taste of average strength and a hint of toffee. Good freshness.
Average body with a prickly feel. Well balanced finish, dry ending with a bitter mouth coat.
Overall : A notch better than the average brand having a little more taste and body. GlennHendry (454) - OSHAWA, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 19, 2015
UPDATED: SEP 22, 2015 First macro beer I’ve had in a while; chose Ex because it’s an ale. Very little astringency so common among its lager friends, it was actually quite smooth. But it tasted of nearly nothing. No hops and very little sweetness as well. Still, better than most of the macros. Low69caprice (100) - Yucca valley, California, USA - SEP 8, 2015
Orange clear color. Fizzy grain tea. Very astringent no hops just grain water. Sure cold it is drinkable. Better to pre boils with brats.
