341 ml bottle from a four-style Rickard’s twelve-pack from Sobeys Liquor outlet (and it came with a free T-shirt - go, me!), served in a pilsner flute, Pours a beautiful bright gold with moderate carbonation and a white, meringue-like head that leaves bubbly lace loops. Aroma is composed of lightly toasted malt and herbal, even woody, hops that are a bit peppery; flavor is much the same...softly expressed malts and hops, just sweet enough, and a trace of pepper. Thin-bodied, with a clean finish. Compared to other OG pilsners from guys like Urquell or Radeberger, its key elements are weak or muffled, but it’s still very pleasant drinking from a subset of a larger brewer, and that commands respect from me. Nice! Powertrip (1000) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 8, 2012
Single can purchased from an LCBO in Ottawa, Ontario on 06/06/2012. Colour: Dark yellow, light orange, minimal white head. Nose: The yeast and malt is light but present, and it mingles with a delicious vanilla presence. Light citrus in the background. Taste: Medium-light sweet, medium-light bitter, medium-light sour. Light lemon custard pie seems to be a staple from start to finish (but not sweet), vanilla appears again in the finish. The hops are not stringent or dominating but they play great background music throughout. A decent drink. Strangebrewer (1308) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 5, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 27, 2016 can/bottle. Poured clear amber with a thin white head. Light bready malt nose. Light-medium body, average carbonation, dry finish. Light pale malt with grassy hops, slightly peppery and astringent. dpjuart (1112) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 25, 2013

Review done directly from the bottle, why you ask? Because I’m at the cabin, It’s 29 (Celsius…I think that’s 97ish to you Americans) and I sitting in a lawn chair on the deck overlooking the lake, and sweating at the very thought of standing up again to get a glass. I’ll just assume this looks like beer as I can’t see through the brown bottle. Kind of a German Nobel hop smell but not really, grainy malts with hints of grass. Not too bad so far. Taste is the same with an actual Nobel hop profile what actually surprises me. And I guess I say that loosely, I mean you can taste that it’s there but it not in your face or anything. Bread is very mild, lingering sweetness, nice light citrus. WOW!! I’m shocked I find myself enjoying this beer. I can see myself drinking this again. Screw you Keith’s and your inferior beer. UPDATE!!!! Now that I’m on the RB/BP web site I’m shocked to learn this was an actual German style Pil’s……..they actually nailed the style but in a macro kind of way.

Cannette 473 ml. 5.0%. Couleur jaune or foncé, mousse blanche onctueuse. Arôme de mais et céréales, un peu de houblon. Gout de malt sucré...surprenant, pas certain, étonnant.....rafraichissante avec une finale avec un peu d’amertume. Bonne jercraigs (10374) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 12, 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. robinvboyer (4670) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 7, 2011
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. pintbypint (3641) - 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.
