This hard cider from Molson Coors Canada is deep straw yellow in colour and pours with an oddly large white head that is even more oddly retained as a small collar and leaves some lace; something I have never seen from a cider before. Molson Canadian Cider smells absolutely rank and quite acidic, like the cheapest of white wines with a vague whiff of green apple juice and a peculiar rubbery note that evokes Silly Putty.
The taste of Molson Canadian Cider does fair quite a bit better. It is sweet at first with a nicely balanced dryness, however the apple flavour reminds me of a store brand drinking box; a cheap melange of Granny Smith and McIntosh apples with a lot of added sugar. The cider has a surprising amount of body and its persistent carbonation and collar give it some life on the tongue, but the experience is rather syrupy overall.
