Green Tea and Ginseng Ale

A very thick, slightly off-white head which reduces fairly quickly to a clumpy, rocky layer.
The colour of this ale is amber and quite cloudy. Looks full and heavy.
Aroma is a sweet sour smell, some caramel notes and a pickle like sourness.
The feel is very rich and creamy, full and satisfying like a good oatmeal stout feel.
The taste is quite sour at first hit. A sauerkraut type of sour, not unpleasant at all. There is a tannin bitterness toward the end of the taste, like you find in tea. I don't overtly taste any tea but the drying tannin feel reminds me of it.
There are some vanilla notes buried in there and a bit of citrus hoppiness. For me, this beers best point is the fullness of the mouthfeel. It feels like a meal, like a good rich stout.
The tastes blend together very nicely and add to the whole experience. I really can't say I taste the green tea, and I don't even know what ginseng is supposed to taste like, but I like the overall combination of flavours in this beer.

Molson 'M'

Pours very clear and pale, a decent and lasting white head.
A slight apple citrus in the aroma and not much else.
Feel is medium but does have a carbonation sparkle.
Taste has a light hint of green apple with hints of corn and stewed vegetables. (Warning, drink this cold, as the beer warms the corn and stewed vegetables become much stronger and more unpleasant).
The beer leaves a light sparkly burn on the sides of the tongue but it only becomes apparent if you think about it.
Mostly this is just another mainstream light lager. Drinkable when cold but nothing special. A good lawnmower beer.
That faint hint of green apple gained it a second star but only if you drink it very cold.

Molson 'M'

Very pale gold with a stong white head.
Not much aroma, just a little citrus.
Thin mouth feel with some carbonation tingle.
Not much flavor. Corn up top with just a hint of citrus. Just another mass produced beer for the masses.
If you like good beer, stay away.
