1.18L, um, jug (it's just much cooler to say 'forty', but the label sez what the label sez). Got to try this through the good will of someone maybe a tad uneducated in the way of the beer, but hey, it takes all kinds, right? Seems to me like this particular sort of offering is a decidedly Quebecois thing, as I recall seeing an inordinate amount of stuff like this when I was there a few years ago.

This beer pours a crystal clear, medium golden yellow colour, with one finger of bubbly, fizzy off-white head, which leaves a bit of far-strewn islet lace around the glass as it quickly wafts away.

It smells of a barely (hah - it looks like 'barley'!) sweet corn and rice graininess, a mild denuded apple fruitiness, some flitting hard water flintiness, faint earthy hops, and a somewhat bristling 'dry' alcohol edge. The taste is gritty, grainy corn/rice syrup, a surprising, yet still stale corn pone breadiness, weak, stripped-down drupe fruit, some understated stony mineral notes, and a mild alcohol warmth, sans any particular flavour association.

The bubbles are pretty well sublimated, and generally not a nuisance (or an asset), the body medium light in that sort of tremulous adjunct-bequeathed way, and very plainly smooth, the tacky alcohol and perhaps even some put-upon hops contributing as such. It finishes well, dry, how could it be any other way?

It is what it proclaims to be - a jacked up (booze-wise, only, come on now!) version of their niche market Molson Dry 'line'. Which is so say, they at least keep the sky-high, sickly sweetness endemic to this style well in check. So much so, that after a mere single serving of it, I'm kind of hoping for at least a small breakthrough of said sugar. Or maybe I should just go get a freakin' doughnut, eh?
