COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Like the region itís from, our all-malt Muskoka Craft Lager is a getaway from the average. Thatís because itís 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 youíve been waiting for

UPDATED: MAY 26, 2012 Pretty average lager. Nothing too interesting, but worth consuming I suppose.

bulldogops (1048) - 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 (8314) - 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 (5414) - 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.

blankboy (5979) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 3, 2010
Can [473ml]. Pours a clear bubbly gold with an average size lasting fizzy white head. Aroma of cereal grain, some vegetal notes, sugar and light grassy hops. Flavour of grain, some corn, light grassy hops and sweet malt. Starts watery with most of the flavour in the light bitter finish. Average bodied. Just O.K., a decent Lager. *Addendum: I find this a bit too sweet for the style.

   AROMA 4/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 12/20
piscator34 (1949) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - OCT 17, 2010
Canned sample. Pale gold in colour with strong carbonation. Aromas are of pilsner malt, faint herbal hops, and a touch of canned vegetables. Favors are heavy on pilsner malt, along with some smooth corn grits, and dry black peppery hops. A bit odd on the palate with a bit of corn-like creaminess, followed up by some sharp leafy bitterness on the finish. Seems a bit disjoint overall, but could be worse.

Spab (2300) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 6, 2010
473 ml can from LCBO. Pours a clear deep gold with modest-sized white head. Aroma of grainy malt and light grassy hops. Taste is grainy, but more balanced. Lightish bitterness in finish. Ok, nothing more.

   AROMA 3/10   APPEARANCE 2/5   TASTE 2/10   PALATE 1/5   OVERALL 5/20
Eructoblaster (2957) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 5, 2010
Can - 473ml. Golden body with average carbonation and a thin white foamy head. Its malty/hoppy aroma is very thin. Taste is dominated by maltyness and carries bad corny notes. Finish is very short. Very disappointing.
