Carling Black Label

This is a great example of why I feel the need to walk into nearly every single beer retail outlet that I ever pass - you just never, ever know what might be in there! Picked this can (as pictured on BA) up for 50 cents at Track One between East Point and West End on the less glamorous side of Atlanta, GA, USA. Good value - just! OK, here's the deal. You could have knocked me over with a feather when I saw this can. Carling Black Label is a brand that I grew up with in 1970's (and also the...

Molson Canadian Lager

On-tap, $3.25 Taco Mac, Douglasville, GA, USA.I think I last drank this at The Maple Leaf in Covent Garden - MEMORIES! WOW, that brings back MANY, MANY HAPPY days! What to say? Not much. Light yellow pour (could be any macro in the world), some decent lacing but no head of any description. Some spotty cream on the surface of the beer. Mild corn aroma, not too offensive and just the usual in the taste. Just about managed to finish one of these, but it wasn't easy - all in the name of research!...

Molson XXX

25.4 fl oz Black "Oil Can". Well, for what it is it's not bad. Of course, what it is is not good, but I think you may know what I mean. Appearance is not horrible, and is its best feature. A little too yellow, but apart from that, a decent head and some lacing. Aroma is predictable, being alcoholic sweet vegetable matter. Taste is all alcohol and sweet corn, but it lacks the unpleasant syrupy nastiness that I was expecting. I'd imagine this is a drinkable method of getting slaughtered for the...

Molson Ice

$1.99, 24 oz Can, Gas Station purchase. As time goes by I really have no idea how one is supposed to distinguish between these North American, macro, adjunct lagers. If it were a blind tasting I doubt, even as an experienced drinker, that I would tell between all of these mass produced products. OK, large head and clear yellow pour from a 24 oz can. Very corny aroma, but a fairly clean taste despite the obvious mild skunk. It's drinkable (just), but like all the others, thin in the mouth and...

Molson Golden

Six pack, twist top. An aggressive pour gave this a full two fingers of head, with large bubbles at the top and smaller ones as you look down through the head. The head itself was foamy in appearance but disappeared quickly to leave a very small amount of lacing. This is a pale golden colored brew that is rather bland. Having said that it was fairly refreshing. Unlike some nasty bland macros this didn't leave an unpleasant aftertaste and the overwhelming aroma and taste was NOT simply alcohol....
