12 oz. bottle. My wife brought one back from Canada on a recent trip. Poured out a deep amber color. Fast fading head didn't leave any lacing whatsoever. Aromas are of rice, corn, and most any other adjunct you care to mention. I'll wager it's more adjunct than it is actual grain. Anyway, it doesn't taste very good. Grainy, slightly astringent, and has a metallic aftertaste to it also. Not a good beer by any stretch of the imagination. Good thing I only had one to try. caledonian (367) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 8, 2003
Quite dark red color, off-white head which has some lacing. Malty aroma. It's not bad, often the better of the options at some places where I've been at gatherings, but there's just something rough about the feel. Kåstå (1273) - Mol, BELGIUM - SEP 2, 2003
Dark amber-red coloured beer with a small head. Weak aroma. Slightly sweet start with a neutral to light bitter finish. Bitter aftertaste. jercraigs (10374) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 31, 2003
Pours a nice red colour, not much head. Thin watery feel too it. Bit of sweet malt in the aroma, not much in the flavour department. Slightly caramelly, hints at bitterness. Duffbeer (192) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 12, 2003
This isn't a bad brew. After one taste you can tell that it's made by Molson, which isn't bad. It has decent malts, and a very nice color.

Great color but it was downhill from there. Sweet, sugary and watery body. It could use a hardy concentration of malt and a strong dose of hops. It was a bit thin as though the brewery were on wartime rations with the ingredients. It's a small step in the right direction for Canadian brewers but it's no giant leap for beer-kind.

Amber color with no head whatsoever. Caramel smell. Extremely watery texture, it's ridiculous to say, but it doesn't make its 5,2%. Malt and more malt followed by the nostalgy of a good glass of water. vip3r (6) - CANADA - JUL 17, 2003 does not count
Based on an English Ale. Red amber colour with a hint of sweetness. Has a sweet armoma. Good brew for a semi-large production. beermatrix (1497) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - JUL 11, 2003
Color is a solid red amber, deep and glowing with a small off-white head of tight foam that faded leaving minimum lacing. Smell is very faint of sweet caramel malt and thats about it. Taste is lighter then expected, mostly sweetness from caramel malts a bit of hops but is uneven a bit towards the finish, nice effort, but still watered down enough for less taste and easier drinkin. Upon closer inspection I see its a Molson product, that explained alot. I went out of my way a bit while traveling in Sault Ste, Marie,Ontario to find this stuff and was pretty disappointed, oh well, no harm done, it was in Canadian exchange so it was pretty cheap.

This is by far the best beer Molson makes, although that doesn't say too much. The beer is red, think, creamy , and goes down rather smooth. A solid choice if your at the pub.
