Light golden lager with collapsing white head. Grassy aroma with chalky perfumy notes. Crisp malts with sweet finish, and german styles hops in mid mouth. Again, chalky mouthfeel.

12.26.04 341ml bottle thanks to Secret Santa. A surprise in the mix, for sure. This beer is pale and golden like the beer in commercials, little visible eff. Aroma is pleasantly grainy, light, herbal. Flavor is quite bland but with a clean grassy-dry finish; somewhat salty. In a local pub, you could do worse. Cheers, Santa!

First time trying this one alongside the alleged other ’Premium’ beers -- heineken and corona -- at an advertisers gig tonight. Pale golden colour... grassy and herbal aroma with a clean crisp mouthfeel and doughy malty characteristics. Didn’t find any sort of hop in this at all, but it certainly stands out against the imports of the night.

Thanks to Joey Capps for the bottle. Not much of an aroma, herbal and sweet. Decent balance, cleanish finish.

Clear, bright yellow. Fizzy white head that disappeared quickly. Light, sweet malt aroma. Light feel. Clean though relatively bland sweet, bready malt flavour w/ very low bitterness & some mineral.

Good, not a huge Lager fan, this beer was the steam beer...only the name has changed I think. It was nice and went down really nice. I would have this beer again and all of the muskoka product are very nice and excellent ontario beers....good work Muskoka

Nice golden colour. Fresh, grassy aroma with a hint of hops. Crisp mouthfeel with bready malt flavour and more hoppiness in the finish than I expect from an Ontario lager. A pleasant surprise.

TFOB. Pale orange, slight hops aroma with a nice bitterness. Some interesting undercurrents of flavour. Booth guy said this was formerly the steam?

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Has a really odd taste that I wasn't expecting. Has a slight raspberry taste with a bit of an acidic bite like viniger and bitterness to it. Cloudy yellow gold. I don't think I would buy this again. Given to me or found in a bar full of labbats and molson I would have it though. Nothing special.

UPDATED: APR 19, 2004 (Draught) On tap at Roses Cafe in Ottawa. Medium, rocky, white head with a pale amber body. Little aroma. Much more malt flavour than the crosstown rival SteamWhistle. Below average.
