I have not tried either of those

This one pub I went to had these funky bottles like some sort of metal or something. Me and my friend asked if we could take a couple of them out.. Which is better Labatt shok or kick? If anyone knows.

I found a neat little site about Canadian beer

Canadian beer


Pimpbrewski @ Sat Aug 04, 2007 6:33 pm

This is still the best Canadian beer around.

Clancy's Amber Ale from NB is my regular choice. Brewed by the Moosehead company, it's a little more fuller bodied than the staple Blue/Kieth's most popular around here. I tend towards the red ales if I'm feeling like a change of scenery.

My first post on the site, three years and two days ago. [B-o] [BB] :rock:

(yeah, I'm two days off - I just happened to notice my joining date because Trevor fixed the profiles)

I don't drink Clancy's anymore - switched to Garrison :D

I haven't really found a best one yet, as I liked most of the ones I tried. One I drink regulary though is called Sleemen Honey Brown Lager. It's pretty good.

Best beer for me is the cold one in my hand. We have a belgian fellow who has a business not too far from our house and as well as supplying local bars with his products has a small pub of his own. There are numerous beers to choose from. My wife likes one known as frambozen(sp?) it is a fruit beer made with raspberries.

Ok... let's be truthful here... Canadians are good at drinking beer, not so good at making beer.

Molson? Is Molson a Canadian beer? Out of nine Molson breweries only one is in Canada. It would be just as easy to say that Molson is an American beer or a Mexican beer.

Cervecería Mexicana (MolsonCoors) Tecate, Mexico

Coors Brewing Company (MolsonCoors) Golden, Colorado

Coors UK (MolsonCoors) Burton-upon-Trent, England

Creemore Springs (MolsonCoors) Creemore, Ontario

Kaiser (Brazil) (MolsonCoors) Diviaopolis - MG , Brazil

Molson Breweries (MolsonCoors) Montreal, Quebec

Sandlot Brewery (MolsonCoors) Denver, Colorado

Tadcaster (MolsonCoors) Tadcaster, North Yorkshire , England

White Shield (prev. Museum) (MolsonCoors) Burton-on-Trent, England

Labatt? All Canadian, but mediocre.

This was my second treat from Air Canada on my way to RBSG in Montreal: A pale yellow beer with a huge white head. The aroma is malty and slightly sour, while the flavor is sweet and grainy with a dry hoppy end. Nothing wrong, just boring.

(Can 35, 5 cl) Pale golden with a small, white head. Aroma of...nothing much - rice perhaps, if rice has a smell. Thin, very thin, with only a vague touch of corn or whatever. Damn close to water this is. 040792

A distinctly terrible bit of bile from one of the Big Two. Very grainy.

This became our beer of choice in college -- pretty cheap, much better than bud, and it was an 'import.' An improvement over bud, but what does that say? Best served cold, the cheap-lager crispness lends itself to easy mass consumption.

this is kind of a strange list. Not even sure these are all beers. Best maybe, but probably not popular.
Let's see:

Bud Light scored a whopping 1.16. Wow! Labatt Blue got 2.15

Coors Light - 1.3. Molson Canadian 2.09

What about Budweiser? 1.38. Alexander Kieths - 2.28

Miller Lite - 1.37. Moosehead takes a 2.3

Let's review - not one "popular" brand in the US is better than any of the two "popular" brands in Canada that you criticize, or any other popular brand in Canada.

But look, it gets better, they even have a list of the Top Widely Distributed Beers. Canada takes the #9 spot, while America's best showing is #21. In total, there are three Canadian beers in the top 50 and only two American.

Considering it's an American website from which these ratings are taken, I'd say any point you're trying to make about our "popular" brands is nonsense.

Some people dislike it, but I love Kokanee. [B-o]

Then again I love anything that gets me drunk.....except for a beer I tried at the montreal internatinal BeerFest called Nigerian Nectar. :cry:
