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

I canít believe people are rating this beer that low. It isnít Steelback. My lager was well within the style guidelines and finished quite clean. I give it thumbs up!

Lubiere (9428) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 22, 2005
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!

dirkules (629) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 4, 2004
First time trying this one alongside the alleged other íPremiumí 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. Didnít 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.

joeycapps (1468) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 24, 2004
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

GregClow (2814) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 20, 2003
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.

jercraigs (7348) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 11, 2003
TFOB. Pale orange, slight hops aroma with a nice bitterness. Some interesting undercurrents of flavour. Booth guy said this was formerly the steam?

Cartoonkhaki (1220) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 16, 2003
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.
