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.

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.

Rastacouere (6174) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 19, 2003
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.

Based on an English Ale. Red amber colour with a hint of sweetness. Has a sweet armoma. Good brew for a semi-large production.

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.

Gearwar (56) - Rochester, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 25, 2003
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.

jonas (7109) - Garching b. Mnchen, GERMANY - JUN 23, 2003
Malt nose. Red color, creamy head. Not really bad, but bland and really boring, a drainpour.

pondoshuffles (141) - Fitzroy Harbour, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 22, 2003
A mega brewer trying to sneak into the micro market. This one is sweet, with no real hop flavour. The grain has a corn edge to it and there is mercifully, no finish. Blah!

A Molson blend trying to be a microbrew. Ok to drink at a Canucks game in plastic cup but you can definately tell its not really craft brewed.
