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

DeanF (1628) - Nunavut, CANADA - FEB 1, 2012
No head but plenty of carbonation, apple juice body. Aroma of skunky hops. Flavour is sour hops with lemon notes. Floral and planty, somewhat refreshing, but certainly not an attractive brew - drink it from the can.

cfrancis (2156) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 18, 2011
Pours a clear slightly dark golden yellow with a small quickly disappearing white top. Aroma is mostly light malt and a hint of hop. Taste is mostly a solid bready malt profile with a slight hop. Well done lager.

yarry (527) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 2, 2011
473ml can, 4.8% a/v Light gold colour, nothing special. Aroma is largely grainy, some grassy hops, very "natural". Sidenote, head dissapears fast! The taste is quite sweet and malty, not well balanced by the hops in my opinion. Could definitely use some more. Not my favorite to be honest. The mouthfeel is decent, though the aftertaste is more of the same mildly unpleasant flavor.

patricks110 (1582) - Alberta, CANADA - SEP 7, 2011
The pour is a light golden straw with a thin fizzy white head. Some moderate carbonation. The aroma is grainy with a light grassy hop and mostly cereal malt. Sweet and grainy with light hops. A slick and somewhat oily mouthfeel with no carbonation in the taste. Drinkable and fresh, but not much else.

Metalchopz (2124) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 31, 2011
Originally rated June 2006. This one pours a golden colour with a fizzy white head that dissipates quickly, leaving close to no lace. The carbonation is quite heavy and the nose is of cereal malt. Written 4.8% ABV on the front label. Watery and slick mouthfeel. Smooth, with hardly any bitterness. Mild-sweet malt with touches of grass in the finish and light apples in the aftertaste. A thin layer covers the brew the whole way. A bit overpriced, not the best premium lager, but nothing offensive, so would drink again if given by someone.

Viper666 (2763) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 31, 2011
Canette 473ml. De couleur dorée et claire. Nez de grains de malt sucrés, léger de sirop de maïs avec des notes de légumes bouillis et de houblon herbeux (herbes mouillées) ainsi que de faibles traces épicées (poivre doux). Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen et une texture aux faibles notes crémeuses et aqueuses. Léger goût de légumes bouillis sucrés lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute rapidement un goût de grains de malt pâle sucrés avec des notes de sirop de maïs ainsi que de faibles traces de beurre puis en finale l’on retrouve des notes amères de houblon herbeux (herbes mouillées). Post-goût court-moyen, composé de notes amères de houblon herbeux.

northropfrye (1948) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 25, 2011
UPDATED: MAY 26, 2012 Pretty average lager. Nothing too interesting, but worth consuming I suppose.

bulldogops (1028) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 3, 2011
500mL can from LCBO taster pack. Nothing exciting. Aroma is borderline gross, very tinny and heavy on the corn, bland malt. Pale yellow pour, bubbly white foam. No highlights, just another lager in a sea of mediocrity.

JoeMcPhee (8212) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - APR 2, 2011
Pale golden pour. The aroma is lightly sweet and grainy. A hint of odd sweetness as it warms up. Some definite DMS. In spite of the flaws, it still seems drinkable enough.

mabel (5371) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 31, 2010
[3510-20101205] 473mL can. Grainy light fruity notes in the aroma. Clear, yellow orange body with a quick foamy white head. Light bitter grainy yeast flavour has a light sweet aftertaste. Medium body. Drinkable but not great.
