An average beer for Molson. I understand that they brewed better beer 40 years or so ago. A fizzy drink with a subtle beer taste, instead of a softdrink. Bit crisp and passable with dinner that tastes. Metallic taste from can. If you are 16 its a cheap high.

12oz Can Costco Quebec

Appearance - Clear yellow colour with an average size fizzy white coloured head. There is an average amount of carbonation showing and there is some faint lacing. The head lasted for 2 or 3 minutes.

Smell - Malts, breads/grains, metallic, corn

Taste & Mouth - There is an abov average amount of carbonation and I can taste malts and corn mixed with some slightly harsh herbal/metallic notes. It ends with a grainy/'dry' aftertaste.

Overall - I seem to recall enjoying this beer when I was younger.. I guess I've come a long way since then. It's a distinct metallic slightly harsh taste that doesn't make it all that drinkable. I wouldn't buy this one again.

This beer is very below average because it says it's a dry but if it would be a normal lager i would probably give it a 3 for average. The apperance is below average and the smell is malty and corny. The taste and the mouthfeel doesn't make it a dry. Overall an average beer but it isn't a dry!

Tried the Molson Dry at Baton Rouge in Montreal and it was just a beer nothing exciting. Poured a clear golden yellow with thin white head that did not lace. The smell was wet grain. The taste was typical of most Adjunct american beers. The mouthfeel was light in body with good carbonation to start and then faded. Overall it was ok.

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.

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.

look: 3.75 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5

Appearance - Poured from a 16 oz can into a basic 16 oz bar glass, pours a very clear straw yellow. 3 fingers of foamy head formed although I think that may have just been because I straight poured. The head dissipates fast leaving behind a thin film.

Aroma - Corn, cereal grains, Very faint hops and the classic metallic smell that haunts Lots of molson beers!

Taste - Sweet corn up front and that classic spring water lager taste, followed by some bready grains and very faint floral hops. The hops stick around though you get that classic molson metallic taste... It then finishes quite dry, guess the name makes sense.

Feel - Light watery body, light tingly carbonation, dry slightly bitter finish.

Overall - Just your average AAL, Nothing special, It states on the back of the can that it has no offputting flavors and I guess I cant argue that... I think the reason for that is because theres just not much flavor. This is pass in my books.

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.
