Not much taste. Not much of anything! If I was handed this blindfolded I wouldn’t think it was beer. Does not taste bad but does not taste like beer.

750ml can purchased from Ontario grocer. Poured into a large glass mug (the entire 750ml fit in the mug). Lively and foamy head that lingered for a few minutes and dissipated to a 1/8" film throughout the drink. A surprising amount of lacing. Carbonation was heavy off the start but tapered off and was rather subdued by mid-drink. Smells of corn with a very slight skunk - that familiar Molson aroma that is ever present in every college dive bar I've frequented in Ontario. The taste was surprising: very little of the "adjunct skunk" that I know and expect from Molson product. Instead, I was pleasantly surprised with a nuanced flavor with light grain notes, temperate hop bitterness on the back of the tongue and a dry finish - no off-putting aftertaste, either. I purchased this can with the intention of slamming it in a review; I was expecting a boozy version of Canadian. That didn't happen. I honestly enjoyed it. It's simple, refreshing and was attractive from pour to finish. I wouldn't turn this down in the future. At 5.5% and 750ml, this could certainly do some damage if several were downed on a hot summer day.

It pours a nice light yellow color with a nice head.
I started drinking this when we would travel to Expos games in Montreal. We would bring back a 12 pack each time we came home. It was a good tasting beer not the Best Molson but good tasting. the beer has a hoppy and dry finish which shouldn't be a surprise since its in the name.

Pours a clear yellow with decent head. That is the highlight of this one. The scent is faintly grassy, with a hint of lemon. The combination does not hit my nose well. Taste follows the smell, with some obvious bitterness evident. Thin mouthfeel and a slightly unpleasant bitter aftertaste

473 ml can served cold into a pint glass. LCBO purchase for $2.50 CDN or so. Continuing my recent mini-run on Molson products.

Appearance - Fairly bright golden color, nearly two fingers of white head poured as well that fizzle out in a minute or two. No lacing, great clarity.

Smell - No smell other than some creamed corn and the slightest hint of apple skin.

Taste - Virtally nothing, watery, maybe some faint trace sweetness.

Mouthfeel - It is indeed dry, carbonation is a bit too much but is okay with the lack of flavor.

Overall - For a beer that tastes like nothing, yet has 5.5% ABV and is dry as indicated on the label, Molson hit the target the set here, unfortunately it's not a brew worth repeating. Still could've been so much worse.

473ml can that was purchased across the boarder in Dunham.

Crystal clear pale yellow golden hued brew, slight sweet smell of corn and a mild cracker graininess. Clean for the most part, bone dry with a kiss of alcohol. Very clean grain flavor, modest hop bitterness ... not a whole lot of flavor but a bit drinkable or perhaps just refreshing.

L- straw yellow, fairly clear, low-medium lace, foam dies down quick.

S- smells like any cheap lager. Still better than most american beers.

T- tastes clean, bready, corn. I really don't get much Hopps but they must be in there. Best served ice cold from a cooler of ice to down quickly for a warm buzz.

F- goes down clean tasting like great Western light lager in the yellow tint can, without that watered down taste of American lagers though.

Overall a 710ml can for $4.50 CAD hits the spot if you want to have just over one with the boys. it's best drank ice cold like most cheep brews.
