Oldmanbrau. 355ml can shotgunned just for added class. 5.5%. Plain, flavourless, clear yellow fizz. Great for Maple Leaf fans while watching the other teams in the playoffs, or people whose palate has been destroyed by chain smoking. Not much use otherwise.

reebtogi (6088) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 7, 2012
355ml can pours a pale straw color with a finger of white head that quickly disappears and leaves no lace. Aroma is light grains and hops. Taste is light malt sweetness and some metallic with a terrible hoppy bitternss that lingers a while. Typical macro lager.

Metalchopz (3289) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 14, 2011
Originally rated April 2006. Pours a golden colour with a big foamy-cream white head that leaves good lacing. Heavy carbonation and decent retention. The nose is malty and has a strong scent of hop and alcohol to it. Creamy, watery and oily mouthfeel. The taste is corny (as with all of the PC brews) with some bitterness, here and there, and a metallic flavour in the finish. OK, maybe a bit of dryness. A thin layer of foam coats the brew. Not a bad brew, but nothing very exciting.

Powertrip (1000) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 5, 2010
Nose: 3 or 4 day old whole wheat bread, spicy mustard. Taste: vanilla hints among sugary french toast. Finish is anything but dry with long traces of pine. $1.49 poorly spent.

This is fucking horrible. I have not had a beer that claimed to be "Dry" in over10 years - back to Molson Special Dry - every single time without exception that shit gave me such a wicked headache and hangover I swore the entire line off. Now, here I am with this garbage...first sip - straight to the head. I HATE DRY BEERS! Smell sucks, Taste sucks. THIS BEER SUCKS! I HATE IT. PURE SHIT. IF YOU ARE THIS POOR THAT YOU CAN ONLY AFFORD THIS BEER THEN I HOPE YOU DIE A PAINLESS DEATH.

cheapactuary (9) - Alberta, CANADA - APR 28, 2007 does not count
Not much taste in this. I have PC pilsner and dry side by side. Strong carbonation finish. This tastes like what dry beer should be. Some taste of corn and hops.

Cartoonkhaki (1257) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 20, 2007
Pale yellow with white puffy head that goes quick. Sound like a familiar story? Like all the other PC beers there is this underlying adjunct ridden flavour. Similar to the draft just 0.5% more alc. Light skunk in the aroma. Finish is slightly watery with lots of carbonation.

JohnBarleycorn (537) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 10, 2007
Gold appearance. The mild aroma leans heavier on the sweet end of the scale thanks to an alcohol presence, with some malt and cardboard in there as well. Palate and flavour feature a ginger-ale-like beginning with a fizzy mouthfeel before moving on to a vaguely bitter finish that struggles against an overall medicinal quality. Aftertaste is quite fleeting. Below average, not exactly a dry, but meets expectations for a bargain beer.

355ml can. Pale yellow with a small ring of white head. Corny aroma. Slight malt flavour, a little sweetness, minerally finish. Fizzy.

jercraigs (10210) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 13, 2006
Bottle @ TFOB 2006. Yellow body with a small white head. Dry alcoholic aroma, grainy white wine hints, light corn/vegetal notes. Sweet macro grains linger in the aftertaste. Average to thin palate.
