Bottle: At least it tastes better than it smells. Really ripe with skunk... honestly it was touch or go for a minute. Tastes sweeter than expected and no bitterness at all. Just a sweet malty, sort of corn syrup like lager. I’ll finish this one, but no more.

Bottle. Pale gold with a white head. Lots of carbonation. Malty aroma and flavor of sweet corn.

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.

Meh. Looks like it tastes: Watery, fizzy, generic. Not unpleasant but nothing special. Good hot weather beer. You can bang back a half dozen without really noticing. Like Natty light, but without the complexity......

Clear yellow pour with a fast fizzy head. Corn and barley aroma. Unusual sweet note, corn, slightly metallic finish. Watery body so you can pound em back with verve. What 41 Celsius will drive a man to do.

Sweet corny pale lager. Slightly metallic taste as a bonus. I like the label.

Very little aroma with a few bitter notes. Clear yellow lager with white head. Head vanished quickly. Medium carbonated. Watery taste with some sweet malt.

A good beer to drink when you want to sit back and relax. Has a good flavour but not too strong. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bartlebier (3249) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - APR 4, 2016
350ml bbMay2017 (BL sampler 1). Widely featureless international pale lager that manages to be among the better, cleaner output of this largest privately-owned Canadian brewery, especially when followed by their atrocious pale ale. - At best: boiled barley, with added syrupy lagers of cooked rice and corn. Diluted malt porridge, back to basics. Any potential trait of hop extract powers itself out battling the adjunct sweetness before surfacing in aroma or flavour.
