    This is supposed to be a faithful representation of an ale from the beginning of the 20th century. It is a dark metallic gold in colour, pretty much clear, with an off-white head that sticks around, but doesn’t lace well. The aroma is biscuits, caramel, and spicy hops. The flavour is sweet malt, caramel, and a decent bitter finish. It does make you wonder that if they have this recipe in the books, why do have to drink Export?

    The beer poured a light golden-red colour with some haze and and a creamy off-white head which lingered a while. The aroma was cereal malt, some light spice, yeast, and floral hops. The mouthfeel was medium bodied with average carbonation. The flavour was malt-forward with bready notes, but the finish had a more definied hop presence than any other Molson beer I've tried.

    625ml bottle. Pours a huge amount of frothy off-white head and has a golden amber appearance. Lacing is not bad. Aromas of toasty and bready malts. Flavours are quite malty, lots of barley and hints of rye. Good retention. Average mouthfeel. Pretty good and easy to drink and more flavourful than many other Molson beers.

    Found this in a 6-pack. Pours a hazy golden-amber colour with a frothy beige head, decent retention and some nice lacing. Aromas of rusty water from the hops I do not like, but the rest seems alright. Good maltiness with some caramel, hints of dark fruit and spices. Some nice bitterness builds up from the low start to a sharp finish. Malty, fruity flavours, but the hops take over. The rustiness does seem to leave with time. Quite a surprising not-so-filtered brew from Molson.

    Almost a bomber (625ml) from Central City. Copper pour, light cloudiness, and a creamy ivory head featuring good hang time. Appealing aroma: floral, fruity, underlying malt. Respectable mouthfeel. Flavour was more than acceptable, bitter enough for an APA, plus some malt, and likewise the finish. Sessionable for sure, and one of Molson's better offerings. Could find no mention of this on their website. Cool retro label.
