Fancy new re-branded 355 mL can from TBS. I worked at a liquor store in Edmonton a while back and that was the only place I had ever seen anyone purchase this stuff (though, like all loyalists, they of course insisted it was 'the good stuff'). I've never seen anyone in Ontario drinking this, ever, but I am assuming it's just one of those brews that is only popular regionally (like Old Style Pilsner) or in certain age brackets (like OV).

Pours a familiar pale golden-yellow colour, topped with one finger of fizzy, soapy white head that fizzles its way down to a smooth cap over the next minute or two. Pretty indistinguishable from most of the other pale lagers in the Molson portfolio. The aroma is bland with no real redeeming qualities; it just smells like corny cereal adjunct sweetness.

Acceptable flavour for the style, but nothing out of the ordinary really. With only some grainy pale malts and corny sweetness, there isn't a lot to dissect here. Slightly dry finish with a bit of a corny vibe. Drink this stuff quickly - the flavour is quite minimal when cold, but as it warms it starts to taste more and more like apple juice. Light-bodied and watery, with lower-than-average carbonation. Smooth-drinking and fairly refreshing.

Final Grade: 2.85, a forgettable C grade. Molson Dry shows the approximate level of quality that I've come to expect from one of Molson's 'premium brand' lagers. It's drinkable and fairly clean, but inherently bland and not a standout in its category. I'd have no trouble drinking this again - but realistically, if I'm at a pub or shop with selection so poor that getting Molson Dry is even a valid consideration, I'd probably just get Canadian. Skip this stuff; unless you've been riding this horse since the beginnings of the Dry Beer Craze, there's no compelling reason to hop onto it now.
