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."

From a bottle. Not terrible but not great, just a standard bland drinkable lager.

Light and refreshing. It is similiarily to the other mass produced Canadian lagers although I like it slightly better.

0,33 bottle at a canadian bar. - It’s an okay lager, and that’s pretty much it. Slight bready flavor with a bitter finish. Meh.

That’ll be me 20K then @ ChrisO’s. Can, thanks to Fiona. Bright clear gold beer, small white head. Thin sweet grainy malts. If there is any hop, it’s hiding well. Rough.

Can at Kenny 20k, thanks for this Juan @ new province I think, 15/01/16. Light golden blonde with a decent off White cap. Nose is pale malts, grain, straw, faint smoke, bread dough. Taste comprises pale malts, light citric essence, straw, bread, toasted grain. Medium bodied, spritzy carbonation, semi drying close. Fine for what it is.

Review: Bottle of Moosehead Lager: ABV: 5.0% The flagship brand is one of the most consumed beers in Canada Pours a really lovely clear golden yellow that produces a nice big frothy head which hangs around Is fizzy, a lot of good carbonation, A pretty clean lovely looking beer Aroma: Real lager smell, hoppy, sweet and lovely, liked it, the light grains and malty aromas. Nice Taste: Extremely smooth beer, very easy to drink, such a shame I only got the two bottles as I would have easily devoured a 6 pack of these no problem. Very creamy on tongue No real strong stand out flavours per say, couldn’t really taste the hops, but nice all the same I did, though, get nice big mouthfuls of barely and malts. Very smooth finish, not a heavy beer, very refreshing, I like it. So overall I liked it. Looks good, smells good, tastes good and very smooth, and clean and crisp. That’s all the boxes ticked, and its a beer I will pick up again. I wasn’t expecting much from a Canadian beer, so it was nice to be pleasantly surprised. Definitely a beer for a sporting occasion on a hot day, very sessionable.
