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

Appearance : Clear pale yellow. Small head that is short lived. No lacing.
Aroma : Veggies, citrusy hops, lots of malt.

DuffMan (6164) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 21, 2010
Can, brought to me by my buddy Robbie. Pours a deep golden with a huge bubbly head that shows surprising retention. Sweet grainy aroma. Clean grainy palate with just the right sweetness, and a nice leafy hop kiss in the finish. Nice smooth mouthfeel too. I havenít had many lagers in the past year or so, and the last couple Iíve tried have sat really well with me. Iíd keep this on hand for my non-adventursome beer buddies.

Boutip (4494) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 5, 2010
Can: Poured a light bright golden color lager with a large pure white foamy head with good retention and minimal lacing. Aroma of crisp light hops and lightly floral malt is quite enjoyable. Taste is also a nice enough balanced mix between some lightly sweet malt with floral notes and light dry crisp hops. Easily quaffable with no brewing flaws. A bit more hops would have been great but still very good overall. This brewer is really improving and providing easily drinkable beers.

I tried this beer on April 22, 2010 at "Smokeless Joeís" in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The beer poured a translucent pale golden colour with a 1/2" white head that disappeared quickly. The aroma was grainy malt, weak hops, and acidic tones. The mouthfeel was medium bodied with medium carbonation. The flavour was grainy malt and wet metal. Not a great beer.

Elkas (213) - Cambridge, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 24, 2010
UPDATED: MAR 25, 2010 473ml can from the LCBO. Pours a dark yellow, with no head. A little malt in the aroma, but not much else. A bit bland and a touch on the sweet side, but a drinkable lager.

Sammy (8094) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 3, 2010
Can from LCBO. A serviceable lager, more for a warm day. Light yellow with a large dissapearing white head. Neutral aroma. A tad below average mouthfeel. A mild bitterness, just keeping the sweetness at bay. Decent balanced for a minimal use of ingredients. Drying finish.

Papillon (363) - Sudbury, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 15, 2010
355 mL Can. Light gold body with a foamy-bubbly white head that settles to a ring leaving lots of spotty lace. Aroma of grains, yeast, hay, a hint of honey, and floral notes. Flavor light sweet malt with a subtle accent of honey, very mild aftertaste, and a nice clean finish. A light-bodied beer, this is one of the better summer beers Iíve come across. Brownie points for it being all-malt as said on the label.

355 ml can, Toronto, ON, Canada. Medium golden colour, smooth creamy head. Very mild hop aroma. Slightly skunky first sip with a sweetness that lingers. Easy drinking but not that interesting.

Strangebrewer (794) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 20, 2009
can. Poured clear straw coloured with a thin white head. Aroma of hay. Mouthfeel is creamy and light. Flavour is bready malt and finishes with a lingering bitterness.
