| Molson XXX Super Premium Beer is somewhat of a mystery. Yes, it is listed on the Miller-Coors website as a beer, made with no preservatives and is described as "a unique, super premium beer that combines 7.3% ABV with the characteristic cold, crisp and clean finish that people have come to expect from Molson brewmasters." It is also known that Molson XXX (which stands for Triple Export, and is probably somehow descended from Molson Export, a famous ale, created in 1903) is brewed in Toronto and sold in the American market in 11.5-oz. bottles and large, Foster-like, individual cans. What we do not know is when the beer was first developed, nor do we know exactly which markets in which it is sold. |
On my travels around the USA, I have only ever seen it in Northern states, north of the Ohio River, so it is unknown if it is sold in other regions, as is the case with Molson Canadian, Molson Ice, Molson Light, and Molson Golden (which are also produced in America). I have tried it, and can attest to the fact that the promotional descriptions of the beer are on target.
Here, I will list some descriptions of this imported beer from some websites:
"Malty, Sweet, Corn, Medium-bodied. Canada- American Malt Liquor- At 7.3% ABV, this medium-bodied brew is higher in alcohol than a session beer but with a similar taste. Pours a clear, pale-golden color. Hints of pale malts and hops along with an alcohol presence touch the palate, with a balancing creaminess."
"No preservatives. Imported. XXX by Molson is a unique beer that combines the benefits of a 7.3% alcohol by volume product with cold, crisp, and clean taste that has made Molson brews legendary. Through its quality, XXX by Molson will quickly become your favorite super premium beer. Product of Canada.
Warnings Because XXX by Molson is a perfect blend of higher alcohol with a smooth, clean taste, we advise you to drink this beer in moderation. XXX by Molson - Handle with care."
Food Pairing: Cuisine (Indian, Latin American, Pan Asian) General (Apéritif)
Seasonal Availability: Year Round
Beverage Type: American Malt Liquor
Pours out to a clear dark golden, forming a modest rocky white head with good retention and some moderate lacing. Moderate carbonation. The aroma is of macro-twang, some pale malts, a decent hop presence in the vein of a pilsener and a little touch of alcohol. Mouthfeel is wet, smooth, moderate body."
