Fatehunter (1579) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - NOV 17, 2012
Half finger of head. Lot of bubbles visible in the clear, golden body. Smell is a little honey and grain. Faint overall. A great taste. Sweet and bitter mix well. Good bitterness to finish. Crisp texture, moderate carbonation. A pretty good lager. A definite "go-to."

Tastes pretty much like club soda to me. Very very very fizzy, no flavour, but hey you can drink a whole pile of them. I hadn’t had a moosehead lager in 15 years so figured I’d try one again with an open mind. Great beer for my wife who doesn’t really like beer.

BBB63 (6394) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - MAY 23, 2015
Hockey beer: moderately corny aroma and flavors with grassy and grainy notes. Very faint if any hop character. It is what it is.

YigSvartka (195) - Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 21, 2015
Pallid yellow with a small white head. Stereotypical corn, metallic, honey, and grass pale lager aroma. A slightly fuller body than expected. Tastes as it smells with some hop in the finish. Not overly fond of the metallic aftertaste.

Not my favorite. Light and easy but not a huge fan. Nothing special about it.

futre7 (163) - Taipei, TAIWAN - MAY 13, 2015
East to drink from a bottle. Light grain mild hops and a grassy taste. Crisp yet underwhelming with light carbonation. I can imagine drinking a few of these at a bbq. I wouldn’t seek this one out.

larsga (6621) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 5, 2015
Medium white head. Clear paleish yellow body with carbonation. Fruity floral perfumy aroma with sulphury notes. Sweetish perfumy floral taste with papery notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dryish jasmine tea and flowers aftertaste with perfumy salty notes. Like perfumed jasmine tea mixed with real beer. Not bad, but certainly no pleasure, either. (0.35l bottle, from Vinbudin Kringlan.)

Clear medium golden, small frothy white head, recedes to a thin layer, good lacing; aroma sweet malt, grain, bit soapy, grass; taste medium sweet and bitter, malty notes; medium body, oily o watery texture, prickly mouthfeel, average carbonation, aftertaste mild bittersweet, malty notes; acceptable lager.

budedou (510) - Saint Etienne, FRANCE - APR 9, 2015
Pours yellow with a small white head. Taste of corn, hops, malt, grain. Light body. Watery texture

gregorymconway (218) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - APR 1, 2015
Usually have a soft spot for macro lagers that its just a snobby avoidance. Looks right gold transparent thin head. This is a smart avoidance though. Skunky, seems euro-fare based. Harsh grainy character. Eh

AgentAle (992) - Alberta, CANADA - MAR 29, 2015
Aroma is basic malts, a bland hop profile with light sulphur notes. Taste is again bland malts with corn and rice adjunct. Dry basic bitterness on finish. Appearance is a clear gold with a thin pearl head that retains poorly.
