A smooth clean-tasting lager that offers a good balance between malt sweetness and hop bitterness

ran into an old high school buddy today who was carrying 12 mooseheads home.made a swift detour to the neighbourhood park and has a couple each. drank each 341 ml bottle in about 4 min,not because it was so good but because it was such a good memory. oh ya,the review...thought then/think now...better then your average north american pale lager and much better then your average north american pale lager is you liked the stuff in the 70’s and have not had it for more then 30 years.

12oz bottle (Old Notes)-Pours a clear golden with a small white head. Aroma of corn, grains, sweetness, slight skunk, hops and malt. Taste of the same. This light bodied brew is one of the better tasting Canadian pale lagers.

on tape. Pours a clear gold with little head. Not much of any aroma; light malts and corn syrup. Flavors of corn and toasted malt. Not much different than any other Canadian industrial.

Bottle, clear, golden pour with a white head. Doesn’t smell that good and has a kind of cereal taste to it.

tectactoe (1171) - Michigan, USA - MAR 20, 2014
Bottle: What to say about this one that hasn’t already been said? Pale straw-yellow body, bone-white "head" that’s gone almost instantly. Huge skunky aroma, dusty grain, stale hops... Mostly skunk, though. Taste has notes of metal, old hops, dry grain, skunk, DMS, & mineral water. Overly prickly carbonation. Not a good beer, but I don’t really need to tell you that, do I?

This is a great summer beer with just enough fizz to bring the hops flavors out. -- rated via 'Find A Beer' for Blackberry 10

Zarkam (340) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 14, 2014
350ml bottle from Gourmondo.de, clear sparkling gold colour, small fizzy white head, little lacing, Light malty aroma of corn and bisquit with light grassy and citric hops. Taste is initially moderately sweet and slightly bitter, turning into a short mildly bitter finish with a chalky feel. Light body, dry texture, lively carbonation. Quite a boring lager, refreshing but not particularly tasty nor interesting. On the other hand, new country tick, 5% abv and goes down like mineral water when thirsty.

Pored from a bottle. Skunky smell with a note of grass or hay. Golden color, with a bland average lager taste that was better than the smell. When I smelled it, it smelled a lot like Heineken which is one of my least favorite beers. After a couple of sips it’s not to bad, Being from NY right next to Canada, I am 40 and have been seeing this around since I was 10 or 11 and just never tried it yet. Its not as good as Labatt’s or Molson, but is better than Old Vienna, another popular Canadian brew. For the price and availability I would drink it again.
