This stinks and is clear as can be. I saw that Moosehead makes a light beer too.....I don’t get how they can make a lighter beer then this.

350ml bottle. Pours clear and very pale with very small, foamy head that quickly disappears. Taste is surprisingly sweet for a pale lager. Not bad

Moose head is best served very cold out of a glass bottle instead of can. pretty descent pale lager for the price at $9.99 a 12 pack Rite aide. definitely an option for grads on a budget as its cheaper than Budweiser with a heck of a lot more flavor. Not sure why such a overall low rating. Perhaps being judged against better but again note the price point on the higher scoring Pale lagers. Pale lager also can be confused with strong pale lager Here just a average C+ to B- grade. merchants often store hot then throw in the fridge as needed which can’t help much and explains some of the inconsistent stale flavors however still a nice inexpensive choice for a afternoon fishing trip at the lake in hot weather. Recall tasting better bottling’s in years past however out of the mid grade market and choices including price pretty respectable overall. Coors light ,Budweiser, miller, all in a can no less apparently ranked better despite being more expensive than Moose head on Sale? From the Canadian collection Alpine Lager brewed by Moosehead LTD won the 2013 Canadian brewers association lager gold yet got an 11 overall here? This means we must not have much faith in our Canadian brewing friends taste buds if the rating holds true.

Pour out of bottle, miller lite coloration. Aroma of freshly cut cedar sap. Little head. Flavor is tremendously better than any nascar beer ive had tell you what. Corn, malt, honey, sap. Best college beer around.

RhetoricalAns (238) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 28, 2014
Draft and bottle. Pale gold pour with a thin white head. Mild grass and cereal aroma. Taste follows, fairly mild. Light body. Prefer this to some other pale lagers but not exceptional.

Transparent golden pour w/ a surprisingly retaining white head & little lacing. The aroma is pure European skunk which isn’t off putting. The taste carries the skunk up front but finishes rather metallic & abruptly which doesn’t sit the greatest on the palate. Overall, not horrendous!

Dacrza (513) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - JUL 24, 2014
DATE REVIEWED: July 19, 2014... GLASSWARE: Warsteiner pokal... OCCASION: family visiting day completed...APPEARANCE: lively, effervescent body of pale yellow straw; thick, two-finger foamy head that creates surprisingly beautiful white lacing; wonderful cirrus clouds ring the glass... AROMA: heavy dough and biscuit; hops are slightly aromatic;, but more corny than floral; enough tin to suggest a metallic base... PALATE: medium-bodied, refreshingly swift in the aftertaste; a bit grassy and slightly beefy... TASTE: beefy, meaty malts are strong and dominate the profile; subtler flowers include metallic water hose and, to a lesser extent, honey... OVERALL: a college indulgence--just as step above the Natty Lights of the world--becomes a decent Saturday night lager; requires some attention while sipping...

Random select from the grocery store turned to pleasant surprise when I first smelled Moosehead, I will admit it had a slightly metallic taste but alongside it was a refreshingly crisp taste. It went down so smooth and the foam remained poofy and bubbly down the bottle. A random beer but a damn good one
