on tap at moxie’s in guelph on (stone road mall). clear yellow with minimal carbonation. small aroma of pale malt and light hopping. bacis all malt lager with a touch of bittering hops. not bad for a pale lager exclusively brewed for a chain of restaurants by a macro brewer. id have it again.

Slacks (615) - Bolton, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 7, 2009
Draught @ Moxie’s: My notes: "Sipping a Moxie’s Big Life Euro. Wishing I wasn’t. Tastes like bitter grass and spoiled Arrowroots. Smells like metal and air. Lame."

MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 27, 2008
On tap at Moxie’s Grill on Wellington Road in London, ON- Pale yellow and pours a tiny bubbled, frothy head, that is pretty short lived. Some lace on the frosty mug. The nose is of pale malts, grains, some lemon, slight grass. Tastes of somewhat sweet corn and grains. There is also a lemony contingent that I got about mid palate. Mild, crisp somewhat sweet finish with only a tiny bit of lingering bitterness. Not too bad. Food I had was good too.

ILduce (236) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 27, 2008
On tap @ Moxies Yorkdale, Toronto: Golden with a brief frothy head. Notes of malt and grain in the nose. Taste is same with an almost creamy palate and a sweet end. Decent lager.

LiebeBier (808) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - FEB 23, 2008
Draft at Moxie’s Toronto - A very well put together beer. Huge white head and crystal clear golden body. Rich malty flavor with a nice bite at the end of each swallow. I could drink this beer by the gallons. As other have noted, the temperature of the beer was perfect and not served too cold like so many other similar type establishments.

CapFlu (4958) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 2, 2007
(Draught) Moxie’s on Yates Street, Victoria. You really cannot fault this beer for anything. Its plain but not offensive. Large frothy white head with a golden body. Nose is clean with a mild lactic odour. Milky and buttery flavour but seems pretty decent. Not bad.

Golden yellow. Piss. No real distinctive aroma. No real flavor. just not too offensive that it’s ruined. Too much carbonation, just like their amber ale.

UPDATED: DEC 26, 2007 Had this on tap at the Scarborough Town location. Restaurant wasn’t bad; food was pretty good and the atmosphere was nice. Anywho, this was a pretty good beer. Golden appearence with a nice head.This one tasted fresh had a bready/grainy aroma and taste. Sweet finish, went well with my halibut dish. Definitely will try the amber next time I visit, maybe with a steak.

Made by Big Rock eh? Maybe that’s why I thought the lemon on my buddie’s ice tea would look better on my glass of Grasshopper.
