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

473ml can. Gold pour, small white head with modest lacing. Aroma has grains, grass and straw notes. Taste is pretty grainy, some sweetness in the middle, faint hop note. Grainy aftertaste, light body, lots of carbonation. To my surprise this was pretty tasty for a pale lager,

Couleur blonde translucide avec un col plus ou moins résistant. Aromes de céréales, une lager rien d’exeptionnel,...

Pours a light straw colour. Thin white head that rapidly dissipates. Aromas of salt and vinegar chips, and the merest hint of wet cardboard. Palate is thin, and light bodied. Tastes are light vanilla biscuits, and weak green apples sourness. Overall, I love the Muskoka heavy hitters, but this isn’t one of them. More like one of their early offerings trying to draw in the macro crowd. Would not buy again.

473ml can. Clear golden with a foamy white head. Flavors are cereals, bread, citrus, honey and cooked vegetables with grassy and fruity notes. Light to medium body, good carbonation, smooth texture.

Can. Clear Yellow pour. Tiny layer of large bubbles for a head that immediately disappears. Light sweet grainy malt aroma. Taste is similar, maybe a touch of honey.

exeter (356) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 8, 2014
Pours a golden colour with a 1/2" head. Tastes of sweet-ish malt and bready with citrus undertones. Not to over the top, but finely balanced. I’d have it again.

MunBro (508) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 16, 2014
Reviewing from notes based on the Muskoka variety pack I got a while ago. Didn’t have much head or flavor, a typical malty lager. Comparable to drinking a bottle of water.

A can from the Beer Store, thought I would pick up a lager or two, for guests. After a bike ride I thought what the hell, give one a try. Disappointed ! Yep No head, virtually tasteless, thin As my Dad used to call American beer, a boy and a girl in a canoe ( fuckin near water) Muskoka I love your stuff, this one not

Scent of oak, honey, and roasted malt. Clear straw colour. Flavour of honey, malt, and biscuit. Medium body with mild carbonation. A pretty solid lager.

YigSvartka (106) - Manitoba, CANADA - JUN 12, 2014
Translucent golden hue, served cool, no head. Nearly imperceptible aroma consisting of honey and yeast. Taste is much better. Still extremely smooth and refreshing akin to any other pale lager, but a pleasantly sweet aftertaste remains that surpasses the vile finish with most macro lagers. A wee bit of bitterness makes it more complex as well. Would have preferred this ice cold though.

First Review : ) Purchased as part of the Muskoka Survival Pack. Initial pour is a light amber pour with minimal head, Beer is slightly cloudy, head dissipates rather quickly. Mildly malty with little hop aroma. Initial tastes are a mild hop flavour that quickly turns into a sweet, bread-like flavour that ends in a dry finish. Thin mouthfeel weak body. Ultimately a generic craft lager. Not great, but not terrible by any means. Still better than any macro brew out there.
