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

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,

bdettweiler (57) - KITCHENER, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 14, 2012
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.

reebtogi (4051) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 31, 2012
473ml can pours a bright golden color with a 2 finger bubbly white head that settles down to leave only small trace of lace on the glass. Aroma is cereal grains and grass. Taste is grainy malt sweetness with a grassy hop bitterness in the finish. A little disappointing compared to the other brews from Muskoka. Only slightly better than a typical macro lager.

Tiger_08 (137) - Sarnia, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 2, 2012
Aug 1 2012. 345ml bottle pours clear pale straw yellow with an inch bubbly white head. Head fades to cap and leaves some lacing for half the beer. Aroma is of sweet lemon grass and subtle cereal and grain malts. No hops on nose. Taste is WAY more subtle than smell. Same elements but hard to distinguish or notice at all; is that why they call it "delicate?" After second bottle I can say its definitely easy drinking and palate is very crisp and dry with good carbonation, but no hops bite even after 2. Too forgettable to be Canada’s best lager (who says so anyway?). Won’t pay craft price for macro knock-off again.

Powertrip (999) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 6, 2012
Single can purchased from an LCBO in Ottawa, Ontario on 06/06/2012. Colour: Medium-light yellow with no head. Nose: Malt dominant. A trace of flowery perfume flutters around - and some soap. Taste: Light sweet, medium-light bitter, light sour. Standard lager, with some vanilla notes among the overwhelming malt. Corn as well. Serviceable.

czar (4110) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 31, 2012
pours clear pale golden with a decent white head, some retention. light malts and graininess - cereals, fruitiness. some herbal, light citrus notes. average carbonation, light body - somewhat oily, decent but light herbal-citrusy finish.

shaynsawchuk (426) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 19, 2012
Marked Craft Lager, 473 mL can. Pours a straw yellow with a thick head that disappears almost instantly, leaving lace behind. Picking up a little indistinct citrus on the nose, grass and a little tea and not much else. Taste is similar, nothing noteworthy. Goes down kind of like soda water. Designed to quench thirst and not much else. A disappointing offering from a brewery that knows how to brew good beer.

473 ml can from the LCBO. Pours a light golden colour with small head that quickly disappears. A decent beer, nothing more.

OntBeerDrinker (419) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 12, 2012
Craft lager & different looking can. 2 finger head & golden with bubble’s. The proper looking lager pour. Smell is faint of something good or bad not sure. taste is the hops that give it cirtus taste cus I taste grapefruit,lemon & lime. Heavy bodied. There is maltyness in the texture of the beer but hops mask alot of it. It’s hoppy & flavourfull with a lager side no hoppy ale. Kinda odd. Not the worst thing but not all that great AS well. One can is enough. cheer’s!
