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

GregClow (2848) - 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.

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.

CapFlu (4461) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 21, 2003
UPDATED: APR 19, 2004 (Draught) On tap at Roses Cafe in Ottawa. Medium, rocky, white head with a pale amber body. Little aroma. Much more malt flavour than the crosstown rival SteamWhistle. Below average.

mrkimchee (1414) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 27, 2002
different and slightly better than I expected. most ontario micros make a piss lager, but this is pretty good in comparison. light brown colour. berry-ish aroma with a more pronounced raspberry taste and a hint of mustard seed/turmeric flavour. not bad.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 4, 2002
Olive aroma? Golden, slight head. Little flavour, almost sour. Unpleasant bite. Very poor, hopefully it was off.

caledonian (367) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 29, 2002
Re-rate: originally wasnít impressed with the aroma or taste, accidentally bought it again, this batch not too bad except somewhat weak taste. Dunno, maybe first pack was off.

daboskabouter (1470) - Fergus, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 17, 2002
Touch of hops, sugary. I didnít detect anything premium, but maybe so much of the same at the Toronto Festival of beer will do that to you.

Some grassy hop bitterness…Some caramel in the malt…Nowhere near Anchor’s…
