We had a cheap beer from Molson, now let’s let Canada’s other big brewer have a stab at it. THIS is the beer of choice for bums all over Ontario, with a 719 ml can costing about as much as I pay for 500 ml cans of real beer. I had very low expectations for this, and they were met.
It poured out looking like a pale ale, but the smell off of it was awful. It smelled like skunky beer. It didn’t taste much better either. It had a bad, metallic taste in the mouth and a sour after taste. It was nasty. It reminds me of when I was a bartender and we would joke about serving the gutter beer (the stuff that spills or comes out after each pint) to people we didn’t like. That shit stank by the end of the night. Apparently, Labatt has figured that they can save money by purchasing that from local bars, bottling it and selling it for profit.
This is quickly becoming one of the worst theme nights we have come up with….and there’s still a lot of swill in the fridge!
