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.

A: Light golden beer with a decent head. Nothing very interesting but it's ok.

S: Some malts here and there. A bit of a bread smell too.

T: That's where I'm surprised. It has a nice malt taste! Bread is more present too and provides a bit more body. Hops aren't present much.

M: Watered down, but it isn't as bad as most macro lager.

D: very very high. Decent taste and light mouthfeel, it is easy to drink.

Remember the dry beer craze? I think it was 2 years before the 'ice' beer craze..but I digress.

Average looking lager..maybe a bit paler than their flagship Canadian beer. Big, fizzy white head that quickly receded to a very thin cap/ring. Poor lacing. Again, average for a macro.

More adjuncts and less grainy malt aroma than what I'd expect from Molson here.

Taste is thin and watery. Some astringincy, but no real malt or hop flavor here worth discribing. Does finish dry so it gets to keep it's 'Dry' labelling I guess.

Thin, weak-bodied, and watery in my mouth...ugh

Molson took the flavor out of their Canadian and made Labatt's Blue/Coor's Lite instead. Pass
