As a canut, I had this beer in bottles, on tap, in pitcher, in binge drinking, you name it, it is one of the number 1 party beer! Appearance is quite normal, golden, lot of bubbles, average macro in fact. Smell is just plain normal, nothing funky, nothing great. Taste, I dislike that beer with that taste, pronounced taste that stay for a while, "no after taste they say eh!" well not for me, the molson dry taste stays a long time for me and I dont need to drink a few or I get sick. Mouthfeel is average, nothing bad, it is a beer that is conceipted for mass productions. Drinkability, I guess that her best point, it is easilly drinkable.

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.

341 ml brown bottle.

A- Nice golden yellow colour. Weak, thin, but present head. Head dissipates rapidly but a few bubbles stick around till the end. basic clear macro lager.

S- basic lager smell out of bottle. Reminds me of some macro euro-lagers. Weak. Slightly sweet smelling, especially as it warms. Faint hops. Would be OK if it the aroma was more noriceably present.

T- Has virtually no flavour when cold. Some tap water tastes stronger. Best I can say is that there are no off flavours. This is the reason I used to drink this in my youth when only macros were available. At least it didn't taste bad!
A bit of grapes and grassy-floral hops taste as it warms. Touch of bitterness in the finish.

MF- Clean, crisp, refreshing. One of the better cheap thirst quenchers. great if you're not looking for flavour but still want beer.

D- Easy to drink thirst quencher with more alcohol kick than a light beer. Better cold. Honestly better than most beers of its type and I would take it over a number of more expensive, in comparison, imports (such as Heineken or Carlsberg for example).

A: Pours a golden colour with a very big white foamy head. That lasted quite awhile and settled to a nice cap. Not really any lacing.

S: A faint grainy malt smell. Also smells a bit sweet and a faint metallic smell.

T: Not much there a little sweetness and grains to it. It's a bit watery but not in a bad way.

M: It has a light body with light to medium carbonation. It does have the dry finish it's named for. Goes down smooth and crisp. Very drinkable.

D: Not sure if my palette has changed or what but this wasn't nearly as bad as I remembered. I was initially not looking forward to this review but I was happily surprised. It hardly had any metallic traits that I distinctly remember from other experiences with this beer. I might have to turn to this beer more if I'm looking for a cheap macro beer.

look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Poured a 341-ml bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance - pale yellow brew, heavily carbonated, with 1/4-inch sustained head of foam.

Smell - corn adjunct aroma with a thin hop smell as well. Very familiar smell, not complex or interesting.

Taste - pretty neutral start with a sweet corn malt flavour coming through in the middle. Finish is sudden and short, leaving a boring wetness in the mouth and little aftertaste profile to speak of.

Mouthfeel - for all the carbonation this is pretty smooth, although the lack of sustained flavour at the end creates a dull experience.

Drinkability - this is easy to put away, especially when cold, but still isn't a great choice. The sweetness becomes annoying after a while. The higher alcohol content also means you need to be careful also.

look: 2.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 3 | feel: 2 | overall: 3

Appearance: Pale golden. No head at all.

Smell: No smell. Apple juice or real beer got more smell.

Taste: That's ok for a macro adjunct lager.

Mouthfeel: What mouthfeel? Molson markets as having no aftertaste...

Drinkability: It is ok for a macro. Some drinkers like it, others not.
