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

blankboy (6029) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 3, 2010
Can [473ml]. Pours a clear bubbly gold with an average size lasting fizzy white head. Aroma of cereal grain, some vegetal notes, sugar and light grassy hops. Flavour of grain, some corn, light grassy hops and sweet malt. Starts watery with most of the flavour in the light bitter finish. Average bodied. Just O.K., a decent Lager. *Addendum: I find this a bit too sweet for the style.

mabel (5414) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 31, 2010
[3510-20101205] 473mL can. Grainy light fruity notes in the aroma. Clear, yellow orange body with a quick foamy white head. Light bitter grainy yeast flavour has a light sweet aftertaste. Medium body. Drinkable but not great.

Boutip (4699) - 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.

CapFlu (4500) - 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.

reebtogi (4151) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 31, 2012
473ml can pours a bright golden color with a 2 finger bubbly white head that settles down to leave only small trace of lace on the glass. Aroma is cereal grains and grass. Taste is grainy malt sweetness with a grassy hop bitterness in the finish. A little disappointing compared to the other brews from Muskoka. Only slightly better than a typical macro lager.

Tastes like nothing done well. But still nothing. Smells like nothing. Why bother. Go for their harvest or mad tom.

Olive aroma? Golden, slight head. Little flavour, almost sour. Unpleasant bite. Very poor, hopefully it was off.

robinvboyer (3084) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 4, 2007
6 pack from my local LCBO. Slightly malty nose, not much hops. Slight evegetal flavour and aroma. All in all for a buck a beer, itís one of the better ones iíve had. For a basic barebones boring lager, its decent.

Eructoblaster (2994) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 5, 2010
Can - 473ml. Golden body with average carbonation and a thin white foamy head. Its malty/hoppy aroma is very thin. Taste is dominated by maltyness and carries bad corny notes. Finish is very short. Very disappointing.
