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

Wasn’t expecting ANYTHING out of this beer, after all, minus deposit it works out to less than a buck a beer! Nice golden colour, better than the typical. Not much head, if any with a slightly hoppy aroma. Light on the palate and easy to drink, but fairly bland in flavour. Good for the money for sure!

This is the best cheap beer I have ever had! For a buck a beer, I was not expecting such a dramatic improvement over the regular similarly priced cheap swills. For all you macro and cheap beer drinkers, look no further. This is indeed the holy grail of a buck a beer. Highly recommend if you’re at a bad bar with no other option except local macros, or if getting drunk is your goal of the night. It was for the party I brought it for. Everyone was amazed that it was so much better than regular buck a beers. But naturally, I wouldn’t buy it if I had better options.

I was surprised to see a 24-pack of this in the value section section at The Beer Store at a buck-a-beer, not sure if it was a mistake but I picked up 24 of these with no problem. Pours more golden than the average pale lager with a slightly better taste and a clean finish with a tiny touch of hops at the end. Its easily the best buck-a-beer out there, no point in buying anything else if you’re looking for something in that price range.

MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - APR 30, 2006
Bottle- Thanks D for the bottle- Pours into the glass, a pale golden body with a spritzy white fizz that dies quick. Minute lace is also here. Aroma is mainly sweet grains, with no real hops presence. Grass/hay are also present. Not too descript, but no offense taken. Flavours are sweet grassy grain, with a touch of suragy malt and corn water. Ok flavour. FInishes with no real attitude, and little quality, but does not upset to score under 3 for palate. Just ok.

I can’t believe people are rating this beer that low. It isn’t Steelback. My lager was well within the style guidelines and finished quite clean. I give it thumbs up!

Lubiere (11237) - 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 ’Premium’ 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. Didn’t 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.
