COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Like the region it’s from, our all-malt Muskoka Craft Lager is a getaway from the average. That’s because it’s carefully aged and handcrafted to be uniquely flavourful, yet remarkably easy-drinking. Made from North American hops and malt, and winner of Canadian Lager of the Year, this delicately balanced thirst quencher is the refreshing departure you’ve been waiting for

First Review : ) Purchased as part of the Muskoka Survival Pack. Initial pour is a light amber pour with minimal head, Beer is slightly cloudy, head dissipates rather quickly. Mildly malty with little hop aroma. Initial tastes are a mild hop flavour that quickly turns into a sweet, bread-like flavour that ends in a dry finish. Thin mouthfeel weak body. Ultimately a generic craft lager. Not great, but not terrible by any means. Still better than any macro brew out there.

Colour is nice, little darker than macro lager. OK head retention. Aroma is surprisingly malty. Not too malty, but enough to know that this is a well-made beer. taste is great, good sweetness but also some bitterness. Feel is light/medium, but very drinkable with no off characteristics. Aftertaste has that bitterness, but very pleasant all around. Good beer.

Poured light golden colour with small foamy head. Earthy, grassy aroma, slight sweetness. Mostly the same grassy flavour, and not much else. Smooth mouthfeel.

Pretty decent lager with a semi-full body. Not much in the way of depth other than the malts and on the slightly sweet side, but quite smooth, almost creamy. Will buy again.

Lagerboy (1071) - British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 1, 2012
Clear orange yellow, small foamy white head fades. Sweet malty grainy aroma. Crisp clean lager malt taste, some fint hop grassiness and a hint of citrus. Average carbonation, light bodied, lightly hopped. Refreshing and easy to drink. Decent lager. LF (Lagerboy Friendly)

Pours a golden yellow with small carbonation, no head. Subdued corn, toasty malts, grassy hops and aluminum nose. Flavor is lightly sweet and bitter. light body with a slick texture and soft carbonation and a nice lasting finish.

473ml can. Gold pour, small white head with modest lacing. Aroma has grains, grass and straw notes. Taste is pretty grainy, some sweetness in the middle, faint hop note. Grainy aftertaste, light body, lots of carbonation. To my surprise this was pretty tasty for a pale lager,

Golden yellow with a pale, quickly fading head. Sweet malty, floral and light citrus on the nose. Mouthfeel is slightly watery with average carbonation. Taste is pretty much the same as the nose, with a little fruitiness. not much hops in front, but a (very) little citrusy hops on the finish.
