I never understood why anyone would attach the word "dry" to a liquid. When I was younger I thought "dry" gin kind of made sense, because it made your mouth feel parched. And then I realized that calling a cocktail dry was a way to make it known that it was boozy, not watery. Both those make sense. But beer? WTF?

Anyhow, this has a grassiness similar to Rolling Rock, with big nodes of corn and other canned veggies. Not particularly beery, but there's something going on there and there are no off nodes. Bizarrely enough, I think I like the higher ABV "Cold Shots" version of this better, even though that particular beer seems marketed directly to wannabe homeless people.

Remember the dry beer craze? I think it was 2 years before the 'ice' beer craze..but I digress.

Average looking lager..maybe a bit paler than their flagship Canadian beer. Big, fizzy white head that quickly receded to a very thin cap/ring. Poor lacing. Again, average for a macro.

More adjuncts and less grainy malt aroma than what I'd expect from Molson here.

Taste is thin and watery. Some astringincy, but no real malt or hop flavor here worth discribing. Does finish dry so it gets to keep it's 'Dry' labelling I guess.

Thin, weak-bodied, and watery in my mouth...ugh

Molson took the flavor out of their Canadian and made Labatt's Blue/Coor's Lite instead. Pass

Crisp, clean, like the Canadian Rockies.....bland like the snow too. Poured with an average head that faded fast. I couldn't smell anything from this beer. The taste left me a bit empty. A beer, that doesn't appear to be a beer. Had a "Bud/Miller/Coors-esque" feel to it that I could leave well behind.

A: Light golden beer with a decent head. Nothing very interesting but it's ok.

S: Some malts here and there. A bit of a bread smell too.

T: That's where I'm surprised. It has a nice malt taste! Bread is more present too and provides a bit more body. Hops aren't present much.

M: Watered down, but it isn't as bad as most macro lager.

D: very very high. Decent taste and light mouthfeel, it is easy to drink.

I almost forgot I had one of these on my trip to Momtreal...it really was a forgettable brew. Looked pale and fizzy, moderate head that didn;t saty long...sweet aroma some fruit and light hops..like a cider...taste and mouth were soft and mild...hardly any malt or hop profile...just smooth and sweet....uneventful abrupt finish....not very "dry"...not really much of anything...so smooth and soft no real flavor profile was apparent.

Pale yellow appearance with minimal head that disappears quickly. Smell is sweet and corny, a bit metallic.

Has a generic sweet corn taste with a hint of malt. Picked up some bread and metallic hops. Light bodied with high carbonation. Aftertaste is dry, and oddly enough, spicy.

One of the first beers I drank when I turned drinking age, at the time it was because the alcohol was higher then normal without drinking malt liquor. Never paid attention to the taste, hope I grew into a better beer connoisseur.

This is bland and generic, even if your looking for a beer for the same reasons above, there are better ones out there.
