Fairly good for Molson. A bit of a bitterness in the palate, but other than that, pretty predictable. joeycapps (1468) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 7, 2004
Clear yellow. Low-medium carbonation. White head. Faint fruit & malt aroma w/ ever-so-slight hint of fresh cut grass. Light feel. Sweet malt & fruit flavour w/ a touch of grassy hops. Clean but bland. Cartoonkhaki (1341) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 30, 2002
If someone moved to Windsor and it's the only beer on tap at the dive bar across the street it wont seem so bad. JAF737300 (1291) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 23, 2007
I had a can of this from a friend and for an everyday later in the night beer it is not bad. You could do better but not too bad! thepegjett (1281) - Cambridge (via Winnipeg), Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JAN 25, 2011

My goal is to rate all the beer I’ve tried. That means rating the bad ones along with the good ones. This is one of the bad ones. Where I went to University, this beer had the raunchy nickname of "’Ol Vag___", but I was not informed of that until after trying it.
This is one of the old Carling O’Keefe products (Carling O’Keefe’s Ol’ Vienna Lager) that was popular in the late 70s and early 80s complete with television commercials. It pours a weak yellow colour with little head. The aroma was very skunky (every time I have tried this). The taste is rather skunky as well, not a friend to the mouth at all. Strong carbonation, and very little discernable maltiness. The more I thought about it, the less I liked it. After a couple, I was able to safely declare it among the worst Canadian beer I had ever tasted. JesseM (1158) - Margaritaville, Ontario, CANADA - APR 23, 2008
UPDATED: APR 28, 2008 Bottled at the Spur in Waterloo. This beer was neither old, nor a Vienna. Okay okay that was a lame joke! The most tiny and insignificant trace of caramalt sets this apart from other crappy beers at bars. Meh, I didn’t have to pay for it, which is always a good thing for the over-all impression score!

Can. Actually not too bad tasting. Bready, sweet and I could find some hops surprisingly. Body was super thin and wet, though and not at all enjoyable. Overall, better than it should be.

Pretty shitty as one would expect. alot of corn in the aroma and flavor, a bit of a rotten apple flavor too. Good for causing intoxication and a hangover, thats about it though. TipsyMcStager (1139) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 28, 2003
foul odour, skunky with a mild graininess. Macro appearance - 'nuff said. Mildly refreshing, not a real standout, but not as bad as its reputation.
