    Purchased at The Club in Regina where we played our first show of our tour. Typical golden colour, with a white head that is kind of creamy, leaving a cap and lacing. Aromas are the weakest spot here, with junky hops over the mild malts. The taste is malty, almost pilsner-like with the hops showing better here. Quite a decent refreshing brew.

    Ahhhh…fond memories of Calgary export beer. It was a true western dry lager made with specially malted conquest barley malt and hops from BC…It was crisp, tart and finished dry…a wonderful delight to cut the bald-ass prairie dust outta your throat on a hot summer day spent traveling to the stampede…..But I say “WAS” because it is no more…Molson’s closed the Calgary brewery and I fear the recipe for Cal-EX went into mutation in the Saskatchewan plant.......... This beer has the familiar trademark of the buffalo head in the horseshoe but that is where the resemblance ends. I was shocked when I saw this beer I thought was extinct sitting on a shelf in a Saskatchewan beer store …so I bought a 12. It certainly isn’t Calgary Ex the way I remember it ............ This beer is far too sweet and missing the distinct hop tartness and dry finish that Cal-EX was renown for. Poured a straw color. Small cap that laced out nicely no strong aromas…slight wisp of sweet grains and boiled apples. Started peppery from the carbonation then a fruity sweetness wrecks the hop balance and the body goes thin with a musty bready finish….not Cal-EX…but some kind of Molson mega brewed pale lager with no character in a Cal-Ex bottle.
