Beer Review, Molson M

I like beer a lot, maybe even as much as I like food. Big talk but spend a few hours with me at a pub and you’ll see that I’m serious. I recently had the opportunity to try Molson’s new beer named M. When I tried it I was on stop number four of a pub crawl so my initial impressions may have been a little skewed by my level of intoxication. Lyndsey picked up a case for me today so I thought I would tell you what I think about it while I’m sober.

Molson M is a 4.9% “Microcarbonated” lager. It won a gold medal at the 2010 Canadian Brewing Awards in the North American Premium Lager category beating out Premium Lager, Muskoka Cottage Brewery (ON) and Island Lager, Vancouver Island Brewing (BC). Not bad from a mega brewery not know for winning awards. Microcarbonation is a trademarked process that makes tiny bubbles similar to champagne but less noticeable on the tongue. The beer has a slightly sweeter more malt based flavor than Molson Canadian with a hint of caramel and is far easier to drink. The Gold medal is a bit of a mystery to me though, I don’t see this beer being anywhere near as good as Island Lager but lager’s are all a little “Wonderbread” to keep them accessible to beer drinkers who are a little less adventurous.

Over all a good lager, better that most other Molson products but there are better options out there. Don’t be shy, drink craft beer, it will blow you away.

  3. By the taste this lager has more density than regular gold beer. Alcohol effect comes up after the first can of lager. It is not so sweat and not so bitter, it just perfect beer to keep drinking one glass after another. Important thing is temperature of beer. It has to be cold enough to feel balance of flavor and do not taste of alcohol.
    Nothing particular and not exotic, it is just excellent and more traditional lager that you can keep drinking without hang over next day.
